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.

Productive, for a Sunday

Standard

Productive, for a Sunday: Slept in {of course}, read a little of my novel, read up on an interesting Master’s degree program in Humane Education, did some light news research, coordinated an interview for the radio show, caught up on some emails and messages, added a photo and some additional info to yesterday’s post, finished and sent off a speaker proposal to a tech conference, and got some things together for my visit with the unemployment office first thing tomorrow morning.

Some phone photos from yesterday’s travels:

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.
