I’m Back

Sorry guys! Between the REALLY LONG drive down the Alcan (6 DAYS), settling into the new house with munchkin, unpacking, restocking a kitchen o’ plenty, getting proper internet access and discovering that the mid-90’s in the midwest is really freaking hot – I am just getting back to this… I have been cooking (a little), but more importantly I have been eating the most enormous quantity of locally grown fruits and vegetables (especially watermelon – my favorite!) I also just got a new juicer (Breville – works great!)

I have a few more weeks until school gets under way and hope to do a little cooking and more acclimating. Since I am in the corn belt (is there such a thing?), I have been making plenty of salads with fresh corn. This one is particularly delicious – corn, tomatoes, onion, basil and sage with a few drops of balsamic vinager – Delic!!!!

Here’s a delicious heaping plate of wheat spaghetti, fresh green beans and a garlic bagel.

I also tried out Vegan Dad’s Reuben on a Great Harvest Bread’s Marble Rye with a side of Walnut Miso Green Beans.

I made Vegan Yum Yum’s recipe for Smoky Miso Tofu.

Here are some roasted garlic and zucchini slices fresh from the wonderful neighbors garden to my oven =)

Finally – a dessert. Local blueberries made into a blueberry crumble. Scrumptious!
