I mowed the lawn! After going through my entire life without ever mowing a lawn, I finally did it. This may not seem like a big deal to you, but I was dreading doing it. Now that I’ve done it, I have no idea why I was so worried about it. Once I figured out how to start the lawn mower, I was good to go. Although my technique might not be perfect and it’s not the best job, I DID IT.
This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie—Flaky Apple Turnovers, which I made with frozen mixed berries–are like my lawn mowing-skills. Although my technique isn’t perfect and they aren’t the best looking turnovers, I got the job done. Instead of apples I used frozen mixed berries I had on hand. Instead of cinnamon I used Chinese 5-spice (I was going to substitute cardamon, but I didn’t have any.) I also added candied ginger bits.
