These pears were not in my fruit bowl when I left for the gym.
I walked into the kitchen and froze. Something was wrong. I noted that I had a missed call from Karen and figured that she had brought them by since she still has a key from house sitting for us. Plus Karen hates fruit so it would make sense she’d dump the happy pears on me
But when I emailed her she said she didn’t know what I was talking about.
Then I thought Faith might have dropped them off (she’s the type to always have a surplus of fruit 🙂 ) but I had no idea how she would have got in.
So odd. Karen told me to go check all the doors locks, and I was just starting to get scared when she said GOTCHA.
Not funny Karen!!!!!!!!!!!
When I got back from my workout [FYI, biking down hills in Cville is worse than any minute I spent in Montana!], I immediately got started on dinner. There’s no husband here to make it for me!
First, a cocktail.
A batch of wheatberries
And a parchment full of goodies!
I started with a base of bok choy
Topped with orange zest + orange
Coriander + ginger + Napa Valley Herbs smothered on a piece of thawed tilapia from whole foods
Red pepper flakes
All stacked up
And folded over the edges and tucked the bottom to go in a 375* oven for 22 minutes. I couldn’t get the dish off the parchment so I just cut away the edges with scissors.
Of course coconut was involved on top!
PS. There’s a video from a LONG time ago when I made a similar dish!!
My wheatberries got a dash of nutritional yeast for flavor, which was awesome!
Enjoyed en tray with the ending to Eat, Pray, Love (which I loved!)
For dessert I’m enjoying a mug of Pero and some Trader Joe’s dark chocolate!
While we’re on the topic of organization today (the series is going to include a computer post too!), check out my updated computer background and Gmail theme (“Tree”) that have brightened my day!
Going to work on things followed by reading in bed tonight. I ordered a handful of the books you guys recommended, but I can’t wait until Monday to start a book so I have The Postmistress Karen lent me to start!
