good morning! i am thankful for jenn’s link party today – i have a lot of recent meals to tell you guys about! :)
and i’ve added something to my morning routine….kombucha!
now that i’ve been brewing my own, brad and i have enough to each drink one kombucha per day! woop woop and hello saving $6 per day (not that we’d ever each drink one per day if we had to buy them…).
my lunches have been lots of leftovers, so i’m going to skip lunch photos and show you the original dinners (since they’re prettier!).
i was craving pasta the other day and told brad we were going to eat some gnocchi that i got from trader joe’s. when he heard “gnocchi”, he immediately requested vodka sauce. and what my man wants, my man gets (lol…sometimes.).
and for some extra veggies, i steamed some broccoli
in a bag too!
another dinner winner was this sonoma chicken salad on a huge pile of spinach!
and that was served with some green bay packer string beans fresh from the garden!
mmm. this was a perfect dinner – lots of veggies and so tasty! brad requested a repeat of the chicken salad soon – but next time with grapes and apples!
now that my summer gardening program is over, i’ve been missing my doses of outside time, so i decided to volunteer with the fieldtrips of kids at the garden on tuesday afternoons! yesterday was my first day, and it was so much fun. now that i’m not in charge or trying to implement my research study, i am able to just enjoy being outside and have fun with the kids!
plus, it’s always awesome taking home fresh, organic, produce! yesterday i got tons of tomatoes and potatoes, some huge carrots, onions, eggplant, and those beans featured above! amazing.
and, tonight there is a chance of frost, so i’m going to have to harvest all of my beans, tomatillos, and peppers from my little porch garden too.
now i just have to use all of those veggies up…but i don’t think that’ll be a problem! ;)
hope you make today a great one – hooray wednesday!
