Daily Feast

Day 201 of 365:

{Writing Prompt: Feast}

My favourite time of the day is dinner time.  A time to gather, feed and nourish.  To discuss, rehash and debate the ins and outs, ups and downs, of our lives.  Family time is dinner time – a daily ritual I savour.

Probably Too Late….

Day 49 of 365:

Today I have chills, aches, and the sniffles.

Ugh

Not completely in the throes of having a cold yet, but it’s coming to invade my body.

As I sliced into an apple to snack on this afternoon, that old adage, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”  popped into my head.   20160218_151047-001

Feeling the way I currently do, it occurred to me that I may have benefited from eating my apple yesterday.  I have a feeling a trip to my family doctor may be in my near future…

 

-*cough, cough*sniff, sniff*-

 

Stay healthy, my friends.

With The Garden In My Kitchen…

I haven’t done a food post in a while…

The onset of August means we are mid-way through our growing season (here in Ontario, anyway).  Every spring I dutifully plant a vast array of the usual summer garden herbs – everything I could possible need and use on a daily basis between June and September.  I love herbs all year long, but when they are picked fresh from your garden, they taste even better.

So today I spent some time in my kitchen, taking advantage of my bounty. Cilantro, basil and sweet mini-peppers are awesome attributes to fresh mango salsa…garlic, chives and oregano will easily compliment a sun-dried tomato dip.

Fresh, green and absolutely delicious!

Being true to form, I had a camera poised and ready to document my culinary adventure.  For this, I was in the mood to use the camera on my iPhone.  I’ve recently rediscovered Instagram, so I put it good use today.

Looks yummy – smells amazing.  Can’t wait to dig in….this will be awesome with our fish dinner.

My cherry tomatoes are just starting to ripen…I can’t wait to start enjoying them!

What about you?  What are your favourite/must have edible plants – the ones you can’t live without in your garden?
