ON THE BACK BURNER

Sept 8

I haven't checked any weather reports,but the weather is beautiful. I don't know who long it will last,but it is trying really hard to make up for a cold, wet,long spring and a cold earlier part of  summer. The mountains were in full view today and there was no snow on the ones that I was looking at. There are several mountain ranges, so I think that I was looking at the Cascade mountains. I seldom, if never, know which direction I am looking and when my son quizzes me on which mountain we are looking at.. I say the very first thing that comes out of my head. I am usually wrong 50 precent  of the time. I have been drying some basil that my grandson brought from the farmers Market. I had it covered in Kosher salt on a cookie sheet. It took over a week, but it dried . It kept its scent but not its color. I pulverized it in my Ninja and now I have ground basil.  I put it in a small container and added it to my spice collection. My other spices are probably angry that they had to make room for a fresh, organic home made contender .
