Turkey Rolls with Pimiento & Feta; spring

I remember the tiny jar of pimento / pimiento that my mother kept in the fridge. The jar was roughly the size of a golf ball and it held about 2 tbs of chopped pimento that she used, very sparingly, to decorate potato or macaroni salads for summer picnics.

I say decorate, because she always had it for so long I doubt there was any flavor left. She treated paprika the same way.

When we lived in Andorra I was introduced to proper pimientos. I would buy a 300gr (7oz) jar that held 2 or 3 whole pimientos / peppers. I stuffed them or used them as stuffing or anything else that suited my fancy.

I can now buy them here in France.

Turkey with Pimiento & Feta

Or: Turkey Rolls with Olives & Ricotta

We’ve had beautiful weather for the last week which means that all of the work that needs to be done in the spring needs to be done yesterday.

It finally quit raining 2 weeks ago.

Mon mari has cut the grass 5 times. Hector can actually find his ball when I throw it for him. I can let him take toys outside because we’ll be able to find them again.

The herbs need trimming, the potager needs tilling, the onions need planting, the weeds need to be gotten out of the roses and iris and tulips before they take over completely, the brambles need destroying and the nettles need to be cut off at the base and….

I’m exhausted just thinking about it all.

So today we went for a bike ride….

Why not?

  2. I’d rather go for a bike ride too, if I still rode a bike! I’m thinking of all the work I have to do outside too, the first thing on my list is getting to the grape vines. Those absolutely have to be taken care of before I do anything else. I know I won’t have grapes this year, but I’m hoping that by cutting them back this year, they’ll produce next year so I can start doing jam again. My kitchen renovation starts this next week and I’m so excited to be able to can and jam properly. I’ll be able to actually get the lid on my canning pot!

    • But the vines here are always cut back in early spring (Feb / Mar) and they always produce grapes…. Maybe if you get at them quickly you’ll get some.
      Kitchen reno – exciting! For 2 reasons: you get a new, wonderful kitchen and you get a few days / weeks break while it happens!
