Garlicky Asparagus

This sounds good..think I’ll try it today.

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

1/8 teaspoon salt

Vegetarian heading for Vegan

First photo is: 

Cucumber with Follow Your Heart Gouda cheese (non-dairy);

Next one:  add a few sauteed mushrooms & some green pepper(sauteed in water with garlic-pepper seasoning);

Third photo is a version with kinda’ fake bacon;

and then a kidney and pinto bean salad with chopped onion, celery, carrot and a Vegenaise & mustard dressing and a hard-cooked egg (so that one is not vegan — but I have made it without the egg and it is still so good). 

Buon Appetito!

Lunch and cookies on New Year’s Eve

Ending the year with a lunch of mushrooms sautéed in water with garlic pepper seasoning on Schar gluten-free bread with tomato, onion, lettuce, red pepper, green olives, Vegenaise and spicy mustard

Oatmeal cookies for dessert.

……and wondering why photos aren’t showing up as images when I edit them. And they aren’t formatting as tiled mosaic.

What is up with that?!

Rewards of Summer Part 2

IMG_3646That’s what I’m talkin’ about!

Yeah, Soup!

A little of those and a little of these

Throw in some carrots, potatoes and peas

Broth and water, tomatoes and beans

Whatever leftovers appear on the scene

Maybe make croutons from leftover bread

Unless you like french bread or some crackers instead

Once you start to chop and saute and simmer

You’ll start to feel good, plus have something for dinner!

Looks Good to Me

It turns out that Bok Choy in a smoothie works really well.
