FOOD JOURNALS

A Farm Friday Date Night

5 Comments 236 views

Just popping in quick to share my food journal and our farm share this week. The Kids and I picked those raspberries, beans and cherry tomatoes. It was so fun! We also got edameme, a melon and a spaghetti squash!

Later, The Husband an I did dinner and movie. He chose sushi. Again. It cracks me up how obsessed he is with the California roll, but I welcome it over his old addiction of McDonald’s. :)

We saw Batman. I liked it but I was expecting more. I think the second in the trilogy was much better. Don’t throw stones, I know I’m in the minority. Everyone else seems to love it.

Anyway, just a quick food journal. I’m feeling really good these days. I almost grabbed a slice of pizza the babysitter left just because it was there and then I said to myself, no, no, I Like How It Feels. :)

    That’s an amazing amount of produce you have there! My husband and I have been going to our CSA every Saturday morning (on my way there in a few minutes alone as he has to work this morning :-( and we have not gotten some of the vegetables you have, mostly greens. Last week we picked the cherry tomatoes, green beans and blackberries. We also put in a little work at the farm in the form of weeding which is great exercise. I’m discovering greens I’ve never eaten and learning new ways to cook them. Last week I made collards for the first time! I’m hoping for some of those Jersey tomatoes this week.

    I would love to raid that table, Roni. Last night my wife and I had awesome salads with spicy peanut dressing. Now that’s easy for me to feel good about!
