So I am back, and so is my camera! Hurrah for being a finder of things. So lately I have been kind of obsessed with this new product at our local natural foods store. Its called "Sues Organics". Sue lives in our neighboring town of Redway and is making some amazing sauces and dips. She has four different varieties and so far I have picked up only one type-its called "Nutritional Feast". I have been making pasta, putting tons of Sues sauce on it, and then cutting up all sorts of raw veggies, red bell peppers, carrots, zucchini, peas, and carrots to the mix. It is very good, especially served cold. One of the best parts of this meal is that you make it and then you are set for days....no more cooking! Even though I love cooking I do love a good leftover meal, and this is it. Another meal that has been a staple in our house these days is Tabbouleh . I have been using Bob's Red Mill whole grain bulgar and it tastes so healthy and yummy. I found this recipe online and have been using it with great success.
I really wanted a fresh salad today for lunch and the homemade salad dressing was begging to dress something. I first washed and chopped some delicious homegrown (not by me, but a friend) greenleaf lettuce. I added to that some cool cucumber, savory red onion, crunchy pecans, sensational cilantro, roasted beets, a tablespoon of flax meal and some sweetened dried cranberries. I really really love SALAD! I think I'll remake this to accompany our dinner too.
We are so excited for summer! The weather is sweet and so are these delicious blueberries that were bought by me at our Friday farmers market today. They come from Honeydew, more than an hour away. I'm sure they will be gone by Sunday, but we will savor every bite!
