i love the look that says, what on earth are these? We got edamame in our farm box this week and this was a true first for us. The kids were great little helpers and pulled the fuzzy little bean pods off the stalks with me. I wasted no time, took the directions of the farm, and boiled them in salted and soyed water for about 10 minutes. Once they cooled down a little we snacked on them all night. I think i enjoyed them the most. The kids and Chris thought that they were ok. I was compulsively snacking on them into the next day until i found the beetle...it was in the bag i had stored them in in the fridge overnight. Was this some kind of apocolypse beetle that can survive a full 10 minutes in boiling water? I did not want to know...i got all grossed out and threw the rest away. Sorry farm. The eda-mommy was good while it lasted.
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
