We’ve had a lovely couple of days up here in Washington. Still in the 50’s, but it definitely feels like spring.
I had the day off yesterday, so we took the opportunity to sleep in until noon. Although, often times when I sleep in, I feel like I’m wasting the day, sometimes it’s also just refreshing to be able to sleep and not have to worry about an alarm clock, or being anywhere at a specific time. Just lovely relaxation.
After I woke up, the bf and I decided to take the pooch for walk around the park by our house. He had a great time smelling everything, but he still isn’t used to his leash, so he never knows quite how to behave.
While we were at the park, we took the opportunity to stop by Samudra Yoga and pick up our CSA box for the week! CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and basically, we pay some money ahead of time, and we get a big box of fresh organic produce every other week from Full Circle Farms. Getting a farm box is always like Christmas for me.Behold the goodies!
Hiding underneath are fingerling potatoes, yellow onions, Braeburn apples, Minneola tangelos, kiwis. Also in the box, but still hiding, or in the paper bags, are a cucumber, zucchini, mango, snap peas, and cremini mushrooms.
I immediately pulled out some snap peas to munch on. Sooo yummy!
After our walk, I decided to make a juice! I usually make juice a couple times a week. I like it because I feel like I’m flooding my body with nutrients with every sip. This was the mix:
A little later we took Arlo on another walk to the library. I needed to return some movies, and wanted to pick up a few more. Library DVDs are always a pretty random assortment. We got Star Trek (2009) and The Da Vinci Code, which we watched last night, as well as, the classic Frankenstein, The Royal Tenenbaums and season 2 of Flight of the Conchords.
Dinner ended up being one of my favorite dishes that the bf makes, fajitas! He has quite a bit of Mexican family, plus he has culinary training, so he makes these sooo amazing.
He stir-fried up:
While this was cooking, we mixed up some bean dip.
The final product! After this point, just wrap and eat! Note: while I usually eat whole grains, tortillas are an exception for me, because I just really don’t like the taste or texture or whole grain tortillas.
We actually shared this meal with my friend Molly, who hates veggies, and she thought it was totally awesome! I think that people who hate veggies just haven’t had them cooked well, or haven’t tried a wide enough variety. There are so many different flavors out there that there has to be SOMETHING that fits your palate!
What have you fed to veggie haters before that they really liked?
Have a wonderful day!!!
