As I knew I would be, not two hours after that big ole salad (nearly the same one I had yesterday) I was slammed with stomach pains and hunger! Thankfully I had 10 sheet pans of granola to take from for a snack.
And I had a Siggi’s in the cooler to pair with them. (Unpictured: about 6 more giant nuggets of cluster!)
My afternoon was lovely (finished the recon! Yeah! I took a mastermind to figure out – so glad I have one of those) and then it was time to bike back home. It’s SO COOL here – only 85* and it feels fabulous! The forecast doesn’t have a single 90′* day coming up!
Dinner was simmering in the crockpot all afternoon! And boy was it good. I made this recipe from CD Kitchen that Karen brought over the ingredients for a few months ago. We just around to thawing the second half of the [lorganic = local/organic] leg of lamb we bought months ago from the Organic Butcher:
I absolutely LOVE stewed fruit!!
The only changes to the recipe I made:
- Omitted the onion and added a big eggplant in its place. Great decision – the eggplant was awesome
- Karen brought prunes instead of dates and left out the apricots. I LOVED the prunes!! So succulent and sweet on the inside
We served the dish with brown rice and sautéed spinach and topped it all with toasted almonds
A little KERFweiser to sip [sparling water + beer mix to lighten the load]
Winning recipe for sure!
Going to chill out!
