Eat Your Veggies, Goldilocks: A Story About Healthy Eating (Fairytales Gone Wrong) by Steve Smallman (2014-11-11) - Steve Smallman

Cute little story of the 3 bears and Goldilocks. The books starts out with Goldilocks not wanting to eat her veggies and only wanting sugary foods. She then runs away and comes across the 3 bears' home where she makes a mess. The 3 bears find her and teach her eating healthy can be fun and delicious. Great to use for grades K-3 to help teach students about eating healthy.

I went to a local Pick-Your-Own Farm this morning.  Can you guess what I brought home?








Unfortunately, the ripe plum/sauce tomatoes, which were one of the primary objectives of the trip, were not plentiful.  Hopefully I'll be able to make the time to go  back in a few weeks to get more.

CSA & Garden Week 11



The melons are here! the melons are here!  And the beans are finally coming in from my pocket garden.


We got melons in both the vegetable and fruit share this week - so many that I gave several to my co-workers.  I also gave away the surplus bell peppers and last week's frying peppers which only 1 person in my family eats.


From the CSA

Bell Peppers

“Candy Sweet” Onion 

 Grape Tomatoes

Jersey Tomatoes

Jalapeño Peppers



Canary Melon


Sugar Cube Cantaloupe (the little ones) x 2

Seedless Watermelon

White Peaches






From the Garden

Zucchini (grown by a co-worker)

Purple beans


Pinto beans

and the occasional blackberry and cherry tomato that isn't even making it back into the house 


 Olive Trees and Honey: A Treasury of Vegetarian Recipes from Jewish Communities Around the World - Gil Marks


And in honor of the 9 days leading up to Tisha B'Av, where it is traditional to only eat meat on the Sabbath, I'd like to plug my favorite Middle Eastern vegetarian cookbook Olive Trees and Honey: A Treasury of Vegetarian Recipes from Jewish Communities Around the World - Gil Marks

Everything I Wanted On Sea Plants In One Book
Ocean Greens: Explore the World of Edible Seaweed and Sea Vegetables: A Way of Eating for Your Health and the Planet's - North Sea Farm,Marcel Schuttelaar,Lisette Kreischer

Food from the sea.

Vegan, Sea Kelp, Algae, Vegetable and Plant nutritional guide and cookbook with gorgeous full color pictures. 


The book starts out with an excellent overview of the various kelps, algae, descriptions and their nutritional properties. Then moves on to sea vegetables and plants. There are very clear instructions of the different forms and how they are used. I was shocked to learn that Ice Plants were on the list. I have lived with that pant around me all my life and never knew it was edible.


The second part is all about the recipes. he Cut the Crab Salad, is a new family favorite for picnics. The healthy Happy Bowl was another.  There are so many recipes i have bookmarked to try, like seaweed gnocchi, and the Weed Burger. It might be difficult to find some of the sea plants and vegetables foe many who don't live near the ocean or a store that carries them, there are some alternative choices to the fresh ingredients.  There are soups, salads, toppings, entrees, breads, desserts and a fantastic looking birthday cake.


It's so nice to have this book be plant based. I don't have to convert any of the recipes. I eat kelp at least two times a week now but will now be adding it to many more meals for my family. I found so many different types of sea veggies that I hadn't felt comfortable using before. I loved this book, drooled over the photos, and recipes and I learned a great deal from interviews and information that is useful. I will be purchasing a hard copy for my kitchen shelf and a couple for gifts.

My Garden
CSA Week N

It's high summer here!  The first picture is produce from my pocket garden.  The cucumbers are a bust and the tomatoes are getting a slow start, but I've been getting a handful or so of peas every few days and there are 4 or 5 other okra that will be ready to pick this weekend. 


The second picture is the weekly CSA bounty.  




Grape Tomatoes (already frozen)

New Potatoes

Spring Onions

Yellow Squash







The early peaches are being scarce and spoil easily.  They apparently were damaged by the same late frosts that totally destroyed the local pie cherry crop.  Apparently the later peach varieties will be fine since they bloomed after the frost.


P.S.  The lime pickles from last week are not to my taste - the brine is too sweet.  I'll have to try other recipes.
