G’evenin’! We just wrapped up a wonderful dinner and are going to watch a movie (we think – if we can agree on one!) I try to stay out of the basement as much as possible these days, but I’m in the mood to get cozy and relax tonight.
This afternoon I did some writing on the porch with this snack –
I nibbled on trail mix, almonds, choco-sunflower seeds and cherries
Around 6, we decided to forage for dinner. Matt is obsessed with eating our greens. He has big tupperwares that he takes to work every day for lunch and our meals pretty much revolve around salads these days. No complaints here because it’s freeeee!
Soon enough we will be eating zucchini
We have barely made a dent in the lettuce
Karen, here’s the update on your flowers you requested!
And while we’re talking plants, I’m thrilled that this palm – which we were given the week of Christmas and neglected the entire winter + spring – has revived outside!
Dinner was an incredible salad -
As much as I love Twin Oaks Tofu, sometimes I crave the wiggly, soft kind (even though this was marketed as firm – Whole Foods brand). Matt loves to sear this kind on all sides in a big skillet so that the outsides barely crunch.
I have to say this was equally as good as my scallops of similar texture and technique from last night! Scallops = $20/pound; Tofu = $1.50 per block.
Under the tofu was a base of garden buttercrunch lettuce and snipped basil, plus leftover coconut rice, thawed frozen green peas and cheddar cheese, all dressed in a simple drizzle of soy sauce.
While I was trying to photograph dinner, Matt was walking across the porch and making all the cubes jiggle! Hence, the title : )
Popsicle for dessert!
