Sunday, a new beginning.
Good morning ladies and gents in simple living blog land!
Today is Sunday, the BEGINNING of the week (thanks for that reminder, Frugal Trenches). I wanted to share my breakfast with you ... it was lovely, and ENTIRELY local!!! without me even trying ; ) i looooooove when that happens. The menu: plums and raspberries, eggs with squash, and dill-roasted potatoes with onion. And orange juice.
it's also nice to eat breakfast in a sunny kitchen nook with someone special who loves your home-cooked food ; ) makes all the difference!!
here's a trick i learned in california: cucumber water!! it's delicious and refreshing in summer.
the swiss chard/eggplant/white bean soup was amazing: key spices i used were ground sage, coriander, and a smattering of ground clove. it was almost like a fall soup, but entirely forgivable because not only was it soooooooooooooooooo filling, it made four extra portions! Tonight I make tofu yellow curry with coconut milk.
Dying to see the movie Julie and Julia ... have any of you seen it? I'd also like to read the book at some point, but right now I'm busy finishing Omnivore's Dilemma. Just a couple more chapters to go in that one! What a great read. I highly recommend it!
Here's to a relaxing remainder of the day (and maybe a walk in the park when it gets cooler ... it's like a hot steam bath here!) .. may you all see Sunday as a *beginning*, and not an end!!
Yours in spirit,
p.s. tomorrow ... is the beginning of a new school year! early to bed, early to rise .... i'm excited to meet the new children!!
