Today’s juice was a keeper. I think it’s pretty much the same as yesterday’s.
- greens – romaine lettuce, celery, 1/2 a cucumber
- jazz – 1/2 granny smith apple, 1/2 lemon, mint leaves (more than yesterday), big knob of ginger
I love the cucumber and mint flavors – they go so well with the ginger, apple, and greens. It’s a wonderful combo – try it out.
Can you see that crazy candle in the background? I love the way it melted around the other candle. I don’t want to get rid of it.
I had a few delicious things last night. First up was kabocha… with guacamole. Unfortunately, the avocado I got was watery and bland; I guess that’s what I get for getting cheap avocados at Han Kook (Korean grocery). I had more bowls than this, but didn’t have guac with the rest. The kabocha was to die for.
I also had raw corn the same way I have popcorn – with sea salt, chili powder, and cinnamon. It was great. I liked it even more than I like popcorn.
This morning I was out running errands and I decided to stop by Mitsuwa, a Japanese grocery store that I don’t go to often (Han Kook is closer) but that I love. I got all this for $15.25. I do know how to bargain shop when I want to.
- whipped butter (not organic, but from non-hormone cows): $2.79
- 2x iceberg lettuce – $0.69 each
- 2x bag of tomatoes – $0.99 each
- package of green beans – $1.00
- package of snow peas – $0.35
- bag of (3) granny smith apples – $0.99
- 2x pack of 2 ears of corn (4 ears total) – $1.19 each pack of 2
- bag of (2) asian pears – $0.59
- head of romaine – $0.79
- 2x package of mushrooms – $0.29 each
- package of ginger – $0.87
- napa cabbage – $0.49/pound
I like to stalk the bargain shelves at Asian grocery stores. Han Kook doesn’t have one, but most do. Not everything I got was from the shelf; the butter, napa cabbage, ginger, romaine, and corn were all full price.
I’m off to read something… I’ve been spending entirely too much time on the computer recently and I need to stop. I did write about linguistic determinism last night if you’re interested in some linguistics info.
