Foods Lately and Check-Ins
I'm waiting on a few things to fall into place before I post about a few other things. Mostly good.
As for some other things that have been happening - my brother in law had part of his bowel removed but he's recovering nicely. My husband has been having stomach issues, too, and they are 90% sure it's Crohn's. We are just waiting for another test to come back. His mother's Kidney Readings were high and she had went to a specialist today and they don't seem to be overly concerned about it but going to retest in 5 months.
My foods have been very simple foods, raw foods, mono meals, and some comfort meals tied in, mostly for the last several weeks. In the first photo you will see I did a Mason Jar Meal. It turned out wonderful. From top...marinated corn, peas and carrots, then seasoned chickpeas, and plain Quinoa on bottom.
One of the snacks I have been enjoying are kicked up Cashews which I have blogged about a few times before. They are just as good as previous attempts.
Something I've been tinkering with and LOVING since I received it in my RawFoodWorld Shipment has been this Pistachio Pesto - OMG - it's marvelous! I hope to do a full review on that soon but here's a little teaser of my first attempt with it...I simply added it to elbow macaroni. I wanted to try it pretty plain-jane first to really taste the flavor - but this is a product I will re-order that is for sure - I absolutely LOVE it!
Another thing I have been enjoying from my shipment has been my new Bamboo Plate. I plan on order one more of this size as well as 2 smaller ones.
As you can see here I have some gorgeous Cherry Tomatoes. They are actually from my Tumbling Tom Tomato Plant which was in the form of a Hanging Basket. I think I have gotten roughly 80 to 100 tomatoes from it so far and they are SO AMAZING!
Yes! You see that right! 4 quarts for $6.99 and they were GREAT! I had large batches for snacks and mono meals PLUS I shared some with my parents as well as a friend AND brought the rest into work and about 4 of us gnawed on them for a few days! While I was there I purchased some sweet cherries as well as some black berries which were top notch, too!
I've also reviewed a Kale Chip they offer so I will keep you posted about that as well!
So...what have you been up to lately!?
