Recent Eats

This was Sunday's dinner at friend's house after church :) The perfect way to start off a brand new week - fantastic food and fabulous fellowship!

Nearly everything on this plate was homegrown or from a local farm: the chicken was free-range and I know the guy who raised, butchered and sold it (pretty neat!), the cucumbers and tomatoes, zucchini and carrots were raised on the property we ate at last night. I enjoyed every bite! The tea was sweetened with stevia and given a little zest with a squirt of lemon. Delish!

That's right, you're looking at an orange watermelon! Talk about exotic :P 

My salad from last night. Refreshing! 

I tired this garlic vinaigrette dressing from Aldi's Grocery and it was really good!

Look at the range in color of these eggs! Farm fresh :)

I decided to make breakfast sandwiches this morning. To season, I just cracked a little fresh garlic salt and gave it a shake of nutmeg. I also threw in a handful of spinach at the last minute :-)

Fry everything up and then put it on some bread for a new twist to your egg breakfast!

Veggie sandwich midday at work today :) This picture was taken at the conference table; there were a bunch of us all gathered around and we were able to discuss business during our break- maximizing time!

I've had a salad with supper the last couple of nights with lots of delicious toppings: sauerkraut, carrots, red onion, and tomato. Soak up all the great fresh summer options while you can! What do you like to put on your salads?

That looks gorgeous. I love complicated salads, with sweet/savoury combinations. I like a bit of warm with the cold too =]

I really like to add a protein (like chickpeas or black beans). I also always make too many roasted veggies at dinner so I can throw those on for lunch the next day. Its a nice change up and because I toss them in olive oil I usually don't need a dressing:-)

Beans is a great idea! I haven't done that in a while - need to get back into that for the protein, especially since I don't eat a lot of meat.

Olive oil is a wonderful idea, too :) Thanks for sharing!
