|So gorgeous, right?|
I haven't done too many interesting food things lately, but I did try Meyer lemons for the first time the other day. The Willimantic Food Co-op, where I buy all my food, had organic Meyer lemons in stock for the first time I can remember and I brought some home. They were DELICIOUS! Tart and tangerine-y! I made lemonade with lemon juice, water and stevia:
And yesterday I made spinach pesto! I'm a huge fan of pesto (who isn't, really?) and since basil's not in season, I used spinach to make a delicious spread that I devoured almost instantly.
The recipe's basic and variable:
- 1/2 cup nuts or seeds (pine nuts, hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, macadamia nuts)
- 2 cups spinach (or kale or other green of your choice)
- 2 tbs. olive oil
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2-3 cloves of garlic
- sprinkling of fresh oregano (optional)
Today, since it was so warm and beautiful, Claire and I took a nice, long walk down a trail near my house. Very grateful to live in the beautiful place that I do!
