First Meal from the Garden!!

Sunday, July 19, 2009

Well, not a WHOLE meal, but a portion of the meal 🙂

But, let me start at the beginning.  Today was a day of wonderful eats.  I just have to repeat–I love my days off because I feel I have more time to create our meals.

So, first up…Breakfast.

I decided to make blueberry pancakes.  Just a box mix.  But with a whole bunch of blueberries–about 1/2 a pint.  We each had two pancakes with some real maple syrup–there is nothing like the taste of real maple syrup.


I love how the blueberries pop with juice when you bite into them!

Then, next up…Lunch.

This is where our first produce from the garden made its appearance.  We have green beans!  Now I am not even that much of a fan of green beans, but these were good.  Maybe because it was knowing that I had actually grown these.  And I went through a lot to pick them.  There were at least four bees out there buzzing around.  If you know me at all, you know I have a phobia of bees.  But I had on sweatpants and a long sleeved shirt to pick the beans so I just kept going and got a bowl worth.  I just boiled them for 4 minutes so they were still nice and crispy, then covered with a pat of butter and sea salt.  Again, SO. GOOD.


Look at how FRESH they look!


Paired perfectly with homemade mashed potatoes and a noodle dish

Last, but certainly not least…Dinner.

We made mini pizzas.  Covered them with tomoatoes, green and red peppers, and onions, and of course lots of mozzarella cheese.  The tomatoes were so juicy and flavorful.  Really wonderful meal.


I absolutely love pizza and could eat it for every meal…

I felt so satisfied with everything I ate tonight.

We had a productive and relaxing day.  Kimm and I both got a bunch of cleaning/filing/organizing done in the office.  And then we watched a lot of HGTV tonight.  All of the shows were NOT repeats for once!

Tomorrow is already Monday and I am back to work.  But only for one day and then THREE more days off.  I can’t wait.

Today Charlie was the one who was all relaxed…


He is just TOO cute!

  1. hahah i totally used wedmd this morning and it basically said i had stomach cancer and was going to die. LOL

    • omg that is too funny. i really do hope you feel better. sometimes those symptom checkers can truly make it seem like you are going to die. hopefully you took it with a grain of salt 🙂 but sometimes i have learned quite a bit from them! hopefully you’ll be back to prime eating soon. maybe the extra rest you’ll get this weekend with working less will help. thanks for replying.
