It always feels as if I've survived a torture treatment the day following a perm. Now I'm saddled with a stinky permy head. I can wet my hair, but not wash it, and so the torture continues for at least one more day. Sounds like a good day to go grocery shopping, doesn't it? Because I figure grocery shopping can't be even one-quarter as bad as sitting for a perm. At least it starts with Egg McMuffin. [Considers what this means about quality of life when McDonald's is the bright spot of the day.] I'll be out bright and early this morning though. I missed my daily cucumber check yesterday, and so I expect I'll find some that have grown to the size of baseball bats overnight.
Speaking of cucumbers, I'll be making more pickles today. We broke open a jar of the ones I made last week. These were processed for shelf-stability.
We were supposed to wait until the end of the month, but if I'm making more pickles, I want to be sure I'm happy with the recipe I'm using. They're fine, but missing something from the ones I made to be refrigerated. I made the refrigerated pickles (below) using this recipe. If you're not into canning, I can highly recommend these. They have a nice clean flavor, and the pickles are nice and crispy.
