The First Asparagus

Do you see what I see?
Clearly - there is food pushing it's way up through the soil surface in my garden....lovely...organic...nutritious....
unregulated.


Don't tell anyone.

Meal Plan Monday 4-6-09


What's cooking in your kitchen this week? I tried a new bread recipe from Breadtopia on Sunday. It was so yummy! I only make bread that uses natural yeast or what is called 'sourdough'. There are many articles on line explaining the health benefits (members of Reset Your Ways should note that the link takes you to an article where the author follows a glycemic index using white bread as the 100 - unlike the one we follow which uses glucose as the 100), of bread made using a starter of sourdough versus using man-made yeast.

Breadtopia has not only has great recipes, but videos that show you how to use natural yeast - check them out!
Here is our menu for the week:

Sunday

L - Salad with wheat berries and black beans
D - Sourdough Pizza (1 aparagus with cream cheese and swiss, 1 plain cheese)
