Right now, it’s not a great time of year to get “normal” salad greens. However, we are really enjoying the bounty of winter produce these days. Cabbage and root vegetables are easy to get and affordable this time of year. Sometimes I roast an assortment of root veggies.
Here I used sliced cabbage, grated carrot, olive oil, and gomasio (toasted sesame seeds crushed with sea salt). This time I squeezed lime juice on it. Sometimes I add sunflower seeds, hemp seed hearts or pumpkin seeds.
Side note: I sliced the cabbage with the spiralizer gizmo my brother and sis-in-love gave me recently. I was a skeptic, but I’m now a convert. Just for slicing onions in seconds flat, I’d keep the thing (which is bulky). Slicing onions perfectly evenly makes it really easy to caramelize them, which I do often (I’m allergic to garlic, but onions are my dear friends).
Brian, my man. Best human in my life.
After our rousing Friday morning concert, lunch at The White House diner in Clare, Michigan. They always request a tune or two. This time we sang “Cuddle up a Little Closer, Lovey Mine” and “Side by side.”Good folks who work hard & do it well.
This is the life!
Perhaps I’ve found my “spirit animal.” I’m only partly kidding. This is a reference to the animated film “Finding Nemo. So many people told me Dory the fish (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) reminded them of me, that I had to go read the Wikipedia article about it.
I do see a resemblance. She’s distractable, determined and an optimist who repeats “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming…” When things get discouraging.
This photo is a clown fish. Nemo is a clown fish, but Dory is a Blue Tang. I took the photo at Charlie Kang’s Korean Restaurant in East Lansing, Michigan tonight.
My gourmet dessert – unsweetened applesauce w/ raw sunflower seeds + unsweet coconut.
