Glad to have a stove again.

Many components to this meal:

1. Sautéed kale with mushrooms, pea shoots and northern beans. 

2. Scallions and fried sage.

3. Avocado mousse.

4. Poached egg

shriracha for good measure (and because it’s delicious/I’ve completely ruined myself and can no longer enjoy an egg without it).

Put together a salsa making competition for my kids. So much fun. They are crazy and creative but it blew their minds that they could actually make their own tortilla chips. Ha

I’ve got six more classes to do this with this week and may need to bring in some judges to keep myself from getting salsa’d out (I’m pretty Mexican, so I don’t know if that’s actually possible). I also had my cooking & nutrition program evaluated today by some big shots from the district. I’m so glad I wasn’t warned beforehand… everything went great.

Being neighborly.
My neighbor has chickens. She shares eggs, compost and chicken fertilizer and I share my harvests.

Sweet Potato Hash1 large or 2 medium sized sweet potatoes (diced)1/2c of finely diced yellow onion 1/2c of chorizo (I used soyrizo)1t cumin1/4c fresh chopped basil1/4c parsleysalt & pepper to taste
My oven is out and after days of being hungry, juice or a smoothie just wasn’t going to cut it this morning. So I plugged in an electric grill and made a steam bag out of tin foil (example of this here). This all took about 30 minutes. I cooked the potatoes first (diced small with the basil, onion, parsley, cumin, salt & pepper) for about 20 minutes, then added the chorizo and cracked a couple eggs on top and sealed the foil again for an additional 6-10 minutes. After sitting down and enjoyed this lovely/inspiring meal with a friend, I did some juicing for the weekend, then went out for a day of gardening.
There are many obstacles, but life is still good. You’ve just gotta make it so. Cheers! -Crystal
*this meal can also be made in a cast iron skillet on the stove-top*
