Oh and this time I have pictures of some of the food in the garden :)
Salad of Mixed spring greens*, sugar snap peas**, chickpeas, carrots, toasted almonds, and the oh-so-
Here's some fresh onions from the garden. I like to peel, clean, trim and slice them, then put them in the freezer so I always have plenty on hand.
Hehe, I was trying to get fancy. A sliced green apple topped with a (peeled) sliced kiwi.
Fresh sugar snap peas**. This are going to be cleaned, trimmed, blanched, shocked (ice water) and frozen.
Look, I got a steamer! I found it at a garage sale for like $2 and it's only been used once! This is perfect for blanching vegetables to go in the freezer
A steamed artichoke with thousand island dressing. Sounds
I used my new steamer and made some steamed Japanese sweet potatoes**, sugar snap peas**, and carrots topped with
I wasn't in the mood for a smoothie so I made a fruit salad instead. Here's the ingredients before:
1 medium gala apple
raspberry soy yogurt*
Heres all the fruit chopped up
And finished up with the yogurt and almonds.
Steamed kale** with sesame oil and steamed japanese sweet potatoes**
THV Herb Sunflower Bread. I found a recipe for a quinoa and sunflower bread, but I didn't have all the ingredients, so I just used the measurements and used different flours and added herbs instead, so really I ended up making my own recipe
Smoothie of strawberries, orange extract, green tea and fresh stevia**
I call it, Kale Mountain, it doesn't look that big, but it's a good ten pounds worth (from the garden). And it took forever to clean, de-stem, chop, blanch and freeze.
THV stuffed italian acorn squash. It's got acorn squash (duh) , broccoli, tomatoes, italian seasoning, rosemary and lentils. It's really good and sorta tastes like pizza (to me at least). It's better in the winter though because the squash has more flavor.
Smoothie of mixed dole frozen fruit (pineapple, honeydew, strawberries, grapes, peaches), stevia*, green tea powder (matcha) and soymilk*.
I used my Herb Sunflower bread and made a sandwich of asparagus, lettuce*, mustard*, and yellow bell peppers.
Remember my guinea pig Lola that was pregnant, well Mango is doing good (I couldn't get her to sit still for a picture though), but Lola isn't. You see she has really long hair, and it's normally in the 90's here, so I decided to shave her, and she looks awful! Thank god she doesn't have a mirror, but I do think the other guinea pigs were laughing at her.
