My day filled out with a walk with my friend Elly! I’m speaking to Elly’s health topics class on Thursday, so we met to go over some logistics while getting in some exercise. A we killed a third
bird roach with our walking stone by going to the bakery to pick up a bunch of coupons for tonight’s panel. Elly and I were sporting neon colors – and we matched my lunch!
Back at home I geared up for my event and downed a Larabar. I was nervous about getting too hungry during dinner hour, but this held me over beautifully.
The panel went really well. I was sandwiched between the sisters behind Once Like A Spark Photography, the owner of Cville’s Wine Made Simple shop and two UVA students who started Let Them Eat Pops, a cake pop business on grounds! It was such an inspiring group! I was there to talk about both being a blogger and bakery owner and flip flopped between the two. The businesses are so different, and they offer such different perspectives of entrepreneurship. Thanks to my friend Wendy for inviting me to speak!
Back on our lawn, I found Matt with a box of herbs and Tate there for some garden consulting. I really hope we can get a garden going this summer! Eating food you’ve grown is so rewarding.
Unfortunately, dinner tonight was rather blah for my mouth. I could tell it tasted good, I just wasn’t into it. Part of my nightly dinnertime wonked-up appetite.
We made maple baked salmon, which is simply salmon marinated in a generous puddle of tamari (soy sauce), maple syrup and garlic and baked for 20 minutes at 350*. It’s a recipe we invented in 2002 and have been making for years!
On the side was sautéed kohlrabi! Wikipedia sez: “The name comes from the German Kohl ("cabbage") plus Rübe ~ Rabi (Swiss German variant) ("turnip"), because the swollen stem resembles the latter, hence its Austrian name Kohlrübe.”
Interesting because I thought the leaves tasted like a potato!
Lastly I made rice cooker brown rice smothered in plain yogurt. Geez Kath, is it the first trimester again!?
Moose Drool to drink!
Unfortunately, my appetite was so off I only got through about 2/3 of this dinner before I decided I couldn’t take another bite. I kept telling myself that all were superfoods and were so good for the baby, but I finally had just had enough.
Snacking on a few graham crackers to ward off midnight hunger. Man they are good!
Excited for breakfast….because I always like breakfast!
