It really doesn’t get much better than fresh, local eggs.
The city recently changed an ordinance allowing for more folks to raise chickens in their yards – 5! I don’t think we could convince our HOA to allow it (for now) so I will be thrilled to support our friends and neighbors with egg laying ladies instead. So. Good.
As I may have mentioned once or twice (or a million times) we eat a lot of tiny tacos in our house and tiny tacos require lots of fresh cilantro (also known as coriander) to ensure maximum awesomeness. However, it can be hard to keep fresh cilantro on hand unless you’re growing it in your garden for immediate harvest. And considering spring is never actually going to arrive in Alaska (much less summer) store bought for the moment is the way it needs to be. But how to keep it from curling up in the fridge you ask? Easy:
- Fill small cup halfway with water
- Place cilantro in cup
- Cover loosely with an open plastic bag
- Place in fridge
This method will keep your cilantro fresh for 2-3 weeks (sometimes longer). Change the water when you think of it and use as much as you need at a time. Enjoy!
