Today started out with Mass. A perfect beginning. A quick stop at Whole Foods and home by ten. By eleven, outside watering and chores were done and I was free to play in the kitchen! Actually the big task was to clean the refrigerator.
So all the things I bought at the Farmer's market were just staring at me. I cut up the watermelon and after eating a good amount of it, I stored it for eating and juicing. Did you know the rind is actually very good for us?
Next came the eggplant. Spelled bacon to me. Slice, marinate and in the dehydrator it went. It is a recipe from Matthew Kenney's book, Everyday Raw. (great link!)
Friday, the 29th, is his book signing party at his restaurant, Matthew Kenney OKC, and I am looking forward to the road trip with Monica and Katherine Rose. His new book is called, Everyday Raw Express.
Here's a few pictures to show you what came next. I call it my Sweet Summer Slaw! See how cleaning out the refrigerator can be so delicious!
|Shredded red cabbage, green cabbage, zucchini, and carrots. Raisins and chopped pineapple.|
|Great colors. Dressing: pineapple juice, honey, peach balsamic vinegar and olive oil.|
|Lunch: Stacked Sweet Summer Slaw ready to eat! Delicious!|
|In a little tart pan, the brownie is ready to get dressed.|
|First comes the sweet creme.|
|Here are all the toppings: pineapple, strawberries, banana and walnuts.|

Wish I had someone to clean up after me!
It is all cleaned up now.
I really enjoyed my day.
And it feels good to blog again.
