6-23-17Fresh squeezed orange juice blended with frozen strawberries Fresh harvested mountain apples from yard7 Saba bananas Oops, forgot to record the rest of this day and the next... now I have forgotten. Think this is the night I made a kind of salsa chutney ish thing one of these two nights. It was 3/4 of a fruity avocado mashed a bit still chunky, some minced chives, 2 roma tomatoes chopped, and a touch of lemon juice. I started eating it with celery, but then Darrel started eating his guacamole which makes his breath bother me if I don’t have some. It's raw vegan so I will put some in my stuff sometimes so his breath doesn't bother me. I added some to mine and decided to put that in dried nori sheets in a row lengthwise with a stick of celery lengthwise across as well before rolling it and eating it. Neither the spicy guacamole nor the dried nori are my ideal foods, but they are acceptable at times. This was one of those times (obviously). Lol6-24-17Think this is when I h…

Mix of zuke, cuke, multicolor carrot noodles with sauce of some of the OJ blended with celery, zucchini, and a touch of tahini, sprinkled with minced fresh chives
Photos to be posted laterToday was a big birding day for me: spent morning on state-wide nene survey, then the rest of the day doing photo review and writing up observations of a moorhen nest from the motion detection camera's SD card I got from an intern. So interesting! Love all of it! :) Darrel went to farm today to see if there was anything new to harvest, and discovered more theft and vandalism. :( They cut our starfruit tree so severely that it might not survive. 😓 It had the best starfruit I have ever tasted... was planted from a tree that had the best starfruit I had ever had p…

Saturday June 17, 2017Fresh squeezed orange juice
1 Tuscan melonLychee Darrel and I spent time to try out Agile Scrum framework for figuring out our life in the next year, in order to help prioritize all the things we were feeling need to be done, feel driven to do and/or have deadlines to finish before we go to the FoodnSport retreats in September. It really helped! Yay! :)Sunday June 18, 2017 Father's Day! :)1 Tuscan melonMountain applesApple bananas
Hearts of romaine head lettuceHearts of romaine head lettuce
3 large roma tomatoes
Mustard  (not ideal)Darrel had something with a lot of mustard on it and I decided to have some mustard too. I wedged the roma tomatoes lengthwise, and placed them on the lettuce leaves lengthwise, then put a bit of mustard down the length of that, folded the leaves over the top and ate them that way. It hit the spot. Mustard is not ideal because of its spiciness, but it's one of the exceptions I have been making over the last few years rarely…

Blueberries from store

Lychee from farmers marketYesterday Fresh squeezed orange juice
Smoothie with some of the OJ and frozen strawberries
Mamey sapote
1/2 pound baby lettuce spring mix with olive oil and spices on it (not ideal, but tasty)
1-2 tablespoons tahini with lemon juice as spread onto dried nori sheets (not ideal) wrapped around small wedges of roma tomatoes  (2 large)Yeah, too much fat for one day, more than one type of fat, oil and spices, and nori all are not my ideal. I realized that and decided it was acceptable enough for me, and I don't regret it. I felt like having the mix spiced like I used to spice popcorn, so I did, and ate it like that. Call it my rarely-occassionally thing. I have been …

I'm turning over a new leaf, sort of, and sending out a grab bag

Yes, I admit it.

I've sucked at keeping any regular posting here in quite some time.

It hasn't kept me from thinking about you all, in fact you've been on my mind a LOT, for years. Still, I haven't gotten into the swing of this again yet.

Sometimes I just have a photo, sometimes I have a description, sometimes a thought, sometimes something nifty to share, sometimes I'm actually up for tracking my food as well.. but not always all at the same time, on schedule.

Life happens. And it's been happening in oh, so many varied ways.

I'd love to share it with you.

I'd love to get back in touch and hear from you as well. Let's catch up.

I have so many interests, and things to share in so many areas, that I think maybe I should try to different websites for them, or maybe different sections on this site.. and then I get bogged down in trying to organize it all that I don't get to the actual sharing.

I've decided to turn over a new leaf and just go ah…
