You know, I wish my photos were more consistent. They turn out so much better in natural light (see last week), but I don’t always have time to do them immediately after we get home on Wednesdays…

We’ve already eaten the corn, some romaine, a cucumber, and a tomato. I tasted a corn kernel raw and it was so sweet, I was tempted to eat the whole ear like that. But we ended up boiling the ears for a little while {because the BBQ is out of propane}. Fresh picked corn is so good.

I’ve already got the beets and fennel chopped and in the dutch oven. Tomorrow I’ll add a few carrots and roast them all. I love roasted fennel – found that out last year.

We made a quick and easy slaw for the Luau/potluck tonight of purple and green cabbage, carrots, Vegenaise, hot mustard, agave, salt, and pepper {we followed a recipe out of Big Vegan}. It’s good—the cabbage was tasty even by itself—and there are leftovers!

It was beautiful weather, we had a nice familiar crowd {plus a few new people—including my hubby}, and it was a relatively relaxing way to spend the evening of the twins’ birthday.
