Eat Day Lilies

After eating day lily buds three days in a row I can highly recommend them. The day lilies are growing all over the place these days and I have a new crop of buds almost every day. These are just the regular orange day lilies. Take the buds off when almost full grown and before they flower. Boil in water for a couple minutes, drain and eat. They are good with a little butter if you want. Delicious. I think the buds have a taste simlilar to asparagus. They are so good. The garden is just starting to pump out food and in the meantime we are eating the day lily buds. I think I am going to have to split the day lilies so I have more for next year. Yummmmm!

More parties

Had a great one today. a 5 year old party with a dinosaur theme. Hid dinosaur fruit snacks in the plastic easter eggs I dug out and the kids always love an egg hunt. We had plastic dinos in homemade eggs (sand, coffee ground, flour, salt mixture) which was also a lot of fun. Homemade pizza was enjoyed by kids and parents alike. Yummm.
