Before I get to the food, look what we got yesterday:
It’s a wonderful Yamaha electric piano (Arius YDP160) from Guitar Center. It’s not just a keyboard – it is electric, but it has weighted keys (all 88 of them) and sounds better than most real uprights. It’s a gift from Bobby’s parents: thank you so much! We love it. We really really love it. I played last night a little bit and as soon as I finish this post I’m going to play some more. I set a lofty goal to learn 10 new pieces by the end of the year so I have to get moving.
Here are some of the salads I’ve had over the last few days.
Raw salad #1:
- base: various lettuces
- toppings: red cabbage, raw blue cheese, heirloom tomatoes, red peppers,
- dressings: Herdez red salsa, liquid gold elixir
Raw salad #2:
- simple tomato (heirloom) salad with bragg’s liquid aminos
This was eaten last Saturday while watching 27 Dresses… which was so bad that I didn’t even finish it. Maybe my tastes have changed, but I really was not feeling that movie. Maybe I just don’t like Katherine Heigl.
I don’t think I ever showed you guys my farmers’ market bounty from last week. While making a salad…
This was so much food. I’ve managed to eat most of it (and I had to supplement some of the juicing items like celery and cucumber). This was all from the Santa Clara market.
Raw salad #3:
- base: interesting green from the farmers’ market; it’s something Asian
- toppings: raw beets, red peppers, fennel, Brussels sprouts, raw blue cheese, kohlrabi
- dressing: liquid gold elixir
All mixed up:
See the thick bottoms of the greens? I didn’t like them much and ended up throwing them out. For the rest of the greens (that I hadn’t used yet) I juiced the bottoms.
I actually have more salads, believe it or not, but I’m going to save them for a later date. I have to go find my battery charger for my old camera (which I’m using now; the newer one broke – er, I dropped it). I’m going to the San Jose farmers’ market today to check it out and update my Bay Area Post.
Words of the day!
