Triangles

Late morning I met up with Faith and Rosie [a new friend who also happens to be pregnant!] for a Monticello Trail hike. Gosh I love that trail so much – it’s beautiful, shady, the perfect length and so refreshing to be a few miles from downtown and feel like you’re on a day-trip hike. I know when the baby comes I will think of all objections to take my car and the stroller out there – but I must make the effort for the beauty of nature!

Back at the fort, I assembled a great lunch. A salad made with greens, tomatoes, cucumbers and a hard-boiled egg – drizzled in last night’s homemade dressing and sea salt.

Plus a plate of triangles!

I’m in between conference calls and a trip to the bakery! See you for dinner!

You’re only missing a triangular plate! The salad looks delicious–I find that sometimes that simple salads taste better than salads with 10 different things all thrown in! Though I do tend to overthrow when it comes to compiling my salads :)

Sounds like a fun morning! I’ve got 2 hikes scheduled for this weekend and I can’t wait. The scenery in the area we’re going to is gorgeous so I’m hoping to get some good photos. Your watermelon has just triggered an enormous craving over here! :)

i always love your post titles – do they always come to you immediately or is it inspired after the post is written? :)

15 KathEats July 12, 2012 at 3:00 pm

it’s usually the first thing i write – but sometimes it’s the last. It’s also the HARDEST thing I write! So thanks :)

I have to second this. Given that you do it three.times.a.day., you do a great job!

I, for one, think that post-naming sounds like the best part. But I can see how it can get tricky when you’ve posted for years and years.

Thanks! If I think of a good one, it’s lots of fun. But sometimes I’m totally stumped and want to just put “DINNER!”

THIRD this. I love your post titles! I especially love it when you do the humorous ones. I can’t think of any offhand, but some of them seriously make me LOL. But I totally get that “writers block” – not all can be funny. Keep it up!!

Hopefully you like my dinner one when you see who came to join us!

those are some big leaves! I always have to cut up my lettuce really tiny because I can’t stand it whacking me in the face as I eat it…

I’ll always be down for stroller time on the trail… I was thinking about that seeing all the strollers go by us! Great meeting you guys today :)

this isn’t related to this post at all, but i was watching some of your videos last night and it also drives me crazyyyy when people put the wrong emphasis on the wrong syllable. glad to see i’m not the only one

That pizza still looks so good! Was it better as a day after pizza, or first hand right out of the oven pizza? :) I like both kinds!

26 KathEats July 12, 2012 at 6:21 pm

I think pizza is ALWAYS better fresh!! This was 80% as good : )

Teaching your son the beauty and wonder of Mother Earth is always worthwhile.

Looks like a perfect lunch to me!!

Pizza sounds good, but unfortunately it is not on the dinner menu tonight.

I am making zucchini cakes, which I heard the recipe for, and have wanted to make. It is a great way to use up zucchini from the garden. All you have to do is: shred one zucchini — not sure what size zucchini to use — ; mix in two eggs, crushed crackers, parmesan cheese, garlic, salt, & pepper; form into little cakes; & fry them on the stove in butter or EVOO. Does that sound good? They are so yummy!
