Another Round

This morning I had enough time to whip up another batch of the Meyer Lemon Curd.  It's so wonderful and easy, if you don't mind whisking for 10 minutes straight... but now all that is left of my citrus spree are two grapefruits and no plan.

Do you have black squirrels where you live?  We have one; I think he lives nearby.  They are still a little rare in eastern Massachusetts, but very common in parts of Canada and in an ever-growing circle around Kent State University in Ohio.  They seem to be more aggressive than their grey counterparts, and the one in our yard is dominating the bird feeder.  All the other squirrels have to wait until he's done!  He's also larger - once I caught a quick glimpse of him and thought he was a cat!

In terms of recent cooking, last night we had salmon with a mango-blood orange salsa.  I took some of the blood orange jelly, which is still pretty runny, and mixed it with diced mango, minced fresh ginger, and some of the pickled jalapeno peppers, chopped finely.  The salmon (caught by Lisa in BC, thanks again!) was grilled and the salsa spooned on top at the last minute.  It was very good!  This morning we had blueberry pancakes, using the frozen wild blueberries we picked last summer (7 one-cup bags left) and the last jar of raspberry syrup.  We are certainly eating well!
