It’s so much spring that our Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) subscription has started! Lots of greens today — arugula, lettuce, kale, spinach. Some onions and radishes, too, and some garlic still leftover from last year’s crop. So apparently Denise doesn’t like radishes? I sort of like them, but I don’t have a clue what to do with them. Anyone got any suggestions? Pinterest tells me I can roast them? I should try that. Everything tastes better roasted.
If you have allergies, or asthma, or celiac, or IBS, or any other health condition or medical issue, do you ever think “healthy” is beyond you? Because it feels like that to me, sometimes. The general idea of health that I see other people strive for, which seems relatively straightforward — exercise regularly and eat “right” — feels well-beyond what I’m aiming for a lot of the time. Michelle, at the Fat Nutritionist, addresses redefining “health” within your own context. I think I can work with that.
The black flies have begun in New Hampshire. Since I (Denise) can’t use regular bug sprays, I’ve been looking into some DIY alternatives. Check out this one I found using essential oils on Garden Therapy.
Also, I’ve been craving fried food for a week. Not sure what’s up with that, but these Jalapeno Rosemary Potato fritters look pretty awesome and they are vegan and gluten-free.
For those of you that might be into fiber arts and live in New England, the WEBS tent sale is Saturday and Sunday, so I’ll be making the annual pilgrimage to Northampton, Massachusetts. Because yarn is mostly allergy free (except the stuff made from corn silk, crab shell, milk protein, and angora because I have an environmental allergy to rabbits.)
Hope you all have a great weekend now that spring has sprung!
