Can I just give a quick pat on the back to food bloggers?
To post a recipe with pictures that go along with the directions takes....forever.
I don't do the Eating Well series every single week because I'd rather be posting more original pictures and fresh new recipes. This week I have some really cool new recipes that I can't wait to share. But I cannot promise that there will be original photography because...
...I usually eat the food before I have a chance to set everything up for pretty pictures.
(Those really are my dishes from yesterday's lunch. I had BBQ seitan, black bean and sweet corn salad, and yogurt with berries. It was lip smackin' delish)
I'll be sharing those recipes this weekend.
I also would like to toot my garden horn. We haven't bought boxed lettuce since the start of May (Olivia, you are one pricey organic sonnuvagun. $4.49 for a big box that costs me less than 10 cents to grow! Shame, shame!) Here are my baby greens:
And our zucchini and summer squash mounds that Brett is forgetting to weed:
I love being out there. Pulling out weeds and getting dirt underneath my nails is pretty satisfying. I feel like Laura. (However- I do
struggle get hysterical when the occasional spider pops out at me from behind a leaf of lettuce.That's usually when I call it a day for gardening.) But then I get to go inside and wash my hands in the cool air conditioned apartment, and Laura is still running around looking for a stream in her sweaty layers of skirts and petticoats.

Enjoy the sun!
