Coffee Roasting, Tomatillos and a Wee Bit o' Gardening

I roasted three different kinds of green coffee beans this past weekend.  I roasted Mocha Java again, Papua New Guinea and House Blend II (those are the names of the coffees).  I don't recall trying the Papua New Guinea before, but I did try the House Blend II.  Figured it wouldn't hurt to give them all a try, and if I don't like them, I can blend them.  It will be a good experiment.

I found some tomatillos at Publix today after work, which was a nice surprise.  I had them all bagged and in the cart, went to get cilantro, and they didn't have any. Not even the potted plants you can usually find.  Dang!  I bought them anyway and tomorrow I'll go hunt down some cilantro and get the rest of what I need - onion, garlic, jalapeno and some tortilla chips.  Roast it all up and give it a whirl in the food processor - salsa verde.  Yummy stuff.

My wee bit 'o gardening was plunking two green onion root ends into the ground while dinner was cooking.  That was exciting.
