Some mysterious member of our local wildlife community has been nibbling on the melon plant in my Tower Garden. Just this plant, none of the others. I couldn't figure it out!!! No other evidence... no caterpillar poop, no insect eggs. Who is it??
And then... I caught her red handed. My garden pest is of the CANINE variety!
OLIVE!!!! Leave my plants alone! I will share with you... but you have to let them GROW first!
OMG YUM! We had a somewhat successful, and somewhat NOT successful sushi-making experience last night. About half of our maki rolls fell apart when we tried to slice them, so we tossed them in a bowl and called it Sushi Salad.
It's a bit of stretch to say it's a Tower Garden recipe, since the only items we used from the tower are the cucumbers and a few baby greens, but I have to share it because it was the perfect lunch today! Crisp and light, maybe a little heavy on the rice. But hey, it's Friday. Let's live a little.
That was supposed to be sarcastic, BTW.
Boothby's Blonde Cucumbers
Check out these little cuties!
They are called Boothby's Blonde Cukes and I think they are adorable. We have a whole bunch getting ripe, and I think I'm going to try pickles! And here's why...
This one was a happy little accident.
I kept seeing recipes for Vegan Macaroni and Cheese. I usually don't fall for the "healthy" version of comfort food recipes. It's almost always more trouble than it's worth, and ultimately disappointing. So I was skeptical, but intrigued, and decided to I give it a shot. I came up with my own mish-mash of several recipes I saw. And it was… ok. But I used the last little bit of brown rice macaroni I had in the cupboard for this attempt, so I've been staring at the extra sauce left in the fridge wondering what I could do with it. Then it occurred to me that it has the look and feel of hummus, so I sliced up some cukes and called it a DIP.
So I present to you… ACCIDENTAL DIP
Salad Dressing Trio
Today you get a three-in-one deal!
I made THREE homemade salad dressings for my first salad party, now I keep getting asked for the recipes. So here they are…
Kale Chickpea Soup
This soup is so simple! I always make BIG pot, so feel free to reduce the ingredients for a smaller batch.
Kitchen Sink Salad
If you have ever shared a meal with Natalee and me, chances are you've experienced our salad. In fact, most dinner invites now include the question: "…and you'll bring the salad, right??"
Here are a few of my favourite crops that you will find in lots of my recipes:
