Recent Eats & Reads

by Kelli H. on September 8, 2011

I read this book over Labor Day weekend. I actually ended up reading it in 1.5 days because it was so good! The prologue didn’t capture me right away but right after the first chapter I was hooked. The story is about 2 sisters (half sisters) who are torn apart by their parent’s will after their untimely death. It spans the years of 1993-2009 and uses real life events in the book. I definitely recommend it as the perfect lazy summer day read.

Other than that…I’ve been totally obsessed with cottage cheese and fresh tomatoes from my CSA farm. They are so good right now that I just eat a tomato and cottage cheese for dinner. Oh yah, and a lemon cucumber!

Last Sunday David and I ate chicken hot dogs off the barbie. It was quite tasty! I love hot dogs. Isn’t that bad? I know they aren’t good for you but they are so simple and totally remind me of summer. I’ve only had 2 this summer so don’t worry…I did make a turkey burger on Monday which was SO tasty. I used to make turkey burgers all the time but I just recently had my first turkey burger again. It’d been like 5 months! What is wrong with me?!

School is back in now and cooking has kind of come to a halt again. We’re surviving off of salads and mean green juices.  I’ve mentioned before that my Dad is on a fruit juice fast for 60 day’s.  He’s on day 45 or 46 (hard to keep count!). He’s mostly drinking kale, celery, cucumber, apples, ginger, and lemon. I actually really like this juice. It’s called MEAN GREEN.

Well, I’m off to yoga!

 What do you eat for dinner when your short on time but still want to be healthy?

Oh my gosh! I LOVE hot dogs too. Why don’t more people just own it?

Sounds like some delicious and simple meals! When I don’t have much time, I usually just chop up whatever vegetables I have on hand in the garden (lately it’s been tomatoes and eggplant), saute them with a little garlic and herbs, add some cheese, and a fried egg on top. It’s simple and quick but so yummy! And your dad’s juice fast sound interesting – I love juices but I don’t know if I could subsist on them day after day. Good for him!
