Flo and I stopped at Roots Market on the way to BWI airport to pick up a friend. We enjoyed a quiet lunch at a picnic table in front of the store. I had some kale salad, and we shared this decadent piece of raw lemon cheezecake. Fun!
After a long day of basement flood clean-up, we were hungry and wanted to use our garden greens. I made a dressing/sauce from fresh tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, Braggs apple cider vinegar, fresh basil, garlic chives, and hemp seeds. I added it to the salad mix, chopped it up a bit.
I divided it into two bowls, and plopped down on a chair with Darren for a few minute reprieve from the clean-up work. It partially recharged my battery, but the five hour sleep I was going on was no match for a salad.
This was in the suggested reading list for one of my grad courses this week. I couldn't resist, after seeing the title. It's an entertaining read, that may subtly shift your self-concept, making it impossible for you to take yourself too seriously, but cause you to seriously enjoy yourself more!
I don't eat out a lot, but when I do, I never find it very difficult. I just order a salad of all fresh veggies, and I usually carry sea salt and pepper with me to jazz things up.
Today, Zofia, Flo and I met up with Grandma at Pure & Simple Cafe for lunch. I got a plain salad with avocado, and a container of kimchi to put on top. I also got a "wheatgrass margharita," and we all shared a couple raw treats. Fun!
I was out late today, and wasn't up for prepping anything when I got home. So, I chopped this in half, cutting up half for the kids, and dug into the rest with a spoon for myself. Not hungry anymore and very hydrated. Dinner done.
I made this for Darren for Father's Day. I just layered zucchini slices, chopped greens and herbs, shredded carrots,a sundried tomato sauce, avocado, and a creamy hemp/pumpkin seed sauce on top. It was tasty, though more work than just throwing it all in a bowl and tossing it to make a salad! But, it looks more interesting than a salad. And, Darren said the leftovers were even better the next day.
Our produce order arrived this afternoon and made my day! These are some of the best organic strawberries I've had, and they're from Pennsylvania, so they're fairly local, too! They won't last long in this house... so good!
We added the juice of a pint of strawberries, and one apple, to the second fermentation of this batch of kombucha, then let it sit another week. It's a bit fizzy and tasty... tart, but a tad sweet... and a pretty red color!
