Life here in Salem, Massachusetts is so much fun and so crazy right now.
Yesterday we enjoyed one of my favorite Halloween activities, the annual Motorcycle Ride for Muscular Dystrophy.
Really, where else can you see this? I read a conversation on Facebook last night about moving the event to a different month because it disrupts traffic and creates confusion for other visitors. I guess it would be successful at any time of the year but I think that it adds a lot of fun to our Halloween season.
These are nice people dressed as superheroes
Hundreds of them ride into the downtown together, then they enjoy the city and give the economy a little extra lift, all for a great cause!
Before we left for the bike parade I chopped back some parsley yesterday.
I left some to keep it growing as long as I can.
Truly fresh parsley is the best!
washed it off well..
chopped off the leaves…
and then chopped them finely.
I put it into an ice cube tray..then I added some water and froze it until today.
Now I have parsley ice cubes, all ready for winter cooking!
I stuck them in a freezer bag and stored them away.Another easy way to freeze parsley is to just pop it into a bag like Michael’s mom does. I was feeling pretty ambitious yesterday when I made the ice cubes. I enjoy that moment in January when I come home from a busy day and just pop the little cube into the dish I’m making. It’s really your preference.
And lastly, I’ll leave you with this photo that I took downtown yesterday:
We love our Halloween here in Salem!
