fresh from the farmer’s market! 🙂
looking at the different shapes of this asparagus, had me thinking similar to when i looked at all those cool seashells…
i love asparagus so much and i only eat it when it’s in season.
did you know that asparagus is loaded with fiber and actually aids in cleansing our gut and also offers awesome detoxifying benefits? i think that’s so cool, considering it is in season in spring and that is a perfect time to prep our bodies for cleansing and switching gears to lighter foods. furthermore, asparagus is a natural diuretic… which may be TMI, but hey, it’s just a fact.
on a different note – i’m so ready for the time change and gaining more evening light! i am so super excited to start a garden this year!!
i miss my mama. today and all week. i’ve missed her since april 14th of the year 1993. this time of year is hard for me – i won’t sugar coat that. sometimes randomly, i’ll think of something that reminds me of her and it will be hard. it never gets easier. however, i find comfort when i spot a penny on the ground, or when i catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror and do a “double take” because i look so much like her… and i find great comfort in knowing that i am now living in her favourite part of the world. she was absolutely in love with these rocky mountains – and it’s an honor to live here… for her and for me.
if my sweet mother judi were alive today – i would make her this simple and amazing brunch… which i’ve been eating every day for like a month now. i buy the ingredients from a local store here in town and it’s all organic, fresh, and farm-grown – you know, like how REAL FOOD SHOULD BE!!!! 😀

– bacon cubes
– colourful cherry tomatoes
– herbed goat cheese
– fresh fingerling potatoes
this dish is perfect for one – what with my cute little ramekins and all… but i do have a second one, and would love NOTHING MORE today than to be cooking for my mama and using the other one.
i lined the bottom of my ramekin with avocado slices, to start… Continue reading
even though we have a ways to go yet before it’s in season…
i’m totally craving asparagus lately…
and sometimes i just take pictures of produce… in case you haven’t noticed 🙂
watching me at the grocery store in the produce section is pretty hilarious, no doubt. i take a long time to pick out my vegetables, mostly knowing that i’ll eventually have them in front of a camera… so i like them to be pretty 😉
that’s one long title.
this recipe was inspired from pinterest. i love stumbling upon fun things like this – the flower eggs, i mean. the creamed asparagus was an original recipe i braved without having any idea how it would taste… Continue reading
so, even though i don’t really celebrate holidays anymore, i still love to eat the foods associated with each holiday… or at least make up some sweet variation of my own for that particular holiday. for example, i totally made a corned beef and cabbage type meal for st. paddy’s day with shoestring potatoes instead of mashed potatoes. and oh boy, you should’ve seen me on new years day… i had the entire day’s meals planned from the moment we woke up. i was determined to create good energy in this home by starting our meals off right in the new year. so far, so good. 🙂 Continue reading
