Aha, I've found a reference to "leather britches" on the Spruce-

"Air drying green beans is a way of preserving them that dates back to pioneer times. It was especially popular in the southern United States where they were nicknamed "leather britches." It's a technique worth trying because once dried they keep indefinitely.

The flavor of the rehydrated, cooked green beans are quite good. Especially if you dry them over a fire or wood stove, they have extra dimensions of flavor compared with canned or frozen beans." (www.thespruceeats.com/how-to-air-dry-green-beans-1327543)

That's good you get to have dinner with cousin, Becky, and if I were in Maine, I would want a waterfront lobster dinner. :-)

...

I'm just so tired this week, it comes and goes, but it hit hard on Monday after not sleeping well and having an early doctor's appointment, and has kept going all week because try as I might, can't seem to get to sleep early.

I'm eating easy stuff this week, and indulging some cravings. (I can always eat at work but it's not often appetizing to me anymore.) On the way home last night, I asked myself "Self, what sounds good for dinner? It has to be easy and quick and tasty." Self replied "Hmmmm... what about a BLT sub from Subway?" That sounded good so I went to the Subway by my house but they were closed, not sure why. I went to small local convenience grocery and bought bacon and bread and went home and made BLTs.

They were mostly good. The artisan sourdough bread -- which was one of two bread styles at the small local store, the other being French baguette -- wasn't ideal for my BLTs, though. You'd think it would be.... but the crust was so thick and the bread was so chewy... It was like chewing on cardboard to get to the middle part where the nummy bacon, lettuce, tomato was.

I guess the point of buying ARTISAN bread isn't for sandwiches. Not sure exactly what it's for, but it's not for sandwich bread.

Not cooking this evening. My cousin from Denver came for the funeral. She has never visited Maine before. We’re going to a waterfront restaurant for lobster.

Ran strings thru end of season green beans and hung in the barn to dry for leather jackets. Started pickle corn and beets. Finished canning a big crock of sauerkraut.

Bought two bushels of apples to make apple sauce and then apple butter. Things are getting done.

Dinner is what's on hand, so salad greens and some chicken breakfast sausage I had left over, cut up into pieces and into my salad. It's good. :-) I'm falling asleep I'm so tired after several long days and not getting good sleep.... zzzzzzz

Greens salad with Chicken Sausage. Can't see it ever being a thing on any restaurant menu, but it should be because it's really good. nom

Several of us from work who carpool/hang out together had a pot luck today. 3 sets of elderly parents and some hubs too. Mashed potatoes, fried chicken, deviled eggs, pasta and regular salad, with cake and cookies. Everyone had a great time, even the rain didn't keep us down. Now hubs is making homemade spaghetti sauce with home grown tomatoes and spicy sausage. it is wonderful!!
