So I was a little concerned today. I wasn’t sure I would have much to write about as for dinner last night we had delish, but leftover, carrot soup from a few weeks ago, and some super doughy bread from Le Brea (cracked whole wheat). Nothing that I actually had to homemake, just reheat. I say I WAS concerned, because when I went out to the garden and raspberry bushes today, I struck GOLD!!!
Going to wash, dry and store the basil in the fridge until I get a few more of those sweet yellow pear heirloom tomatoes in the photo, and then make up a delish and low-cal veg pasta dish. The cucumbers I dress with some basil rice wine vinegar and then top with some thyme from my herb garden and a little fat free feta, that’s a nice lunch. The raspberries I have been gloating about usually go on cereal, if they make it that far…. Finally the peppers. I’m saving those up in a cool, dry place to make my famous jam. Yeah, it sounds gross, but it’s amazing on a cracker in the dead of winter when you need a taste of summer.
Tonight Mr. Wonderful and I are heading East to the Detroit Tiger’s Baseball game at Comerica Park, which has recently been named by PETA as one of the Top 10 Veg Friendly Ballparks. Last time I was there I remember the only veg thing available besides the typical cop-out veggie burger, was nachos in a Mexican sombrero with cheese, peppers, and onions. I mean who doesn’t love pump cheese and pickled jalapenos? I will be sure to report back.
