Second Season Gardening

Thanks to all of Nick's hard work....our second season of gardening has begun :D

A bit bigger than last year, and a lot more organized!

Kai got in on the action too!

Hmmm....I wonder how it tastes?

So lovely seeing green! What do you have growing??

Veggie Juicing

I have always wanted to make veggie juice....but never had a juicer to do so...luckily I am silly and thanks to fellow blogger Sayward at Bonzai Aphrodite I now know that I do not need one!! woo!!

Here is my version of her tutorial

mmmm...fresh veggies....I used leftover Kale, cucumber, carrot, and an orange

Throw them all in the food processor with some water (I added some orange juice also)

and take them for a spin ;)

dump it all in cheese cloth (or like material) over a big bowl

and squeeze, squeeze, squeeze! (just when you think you have gotten all the juice, squeeze some more!)

pour in to a glass (a funnel is helpful, but I don't have I lost a bit in the pour :( )

and omg....YUM! and ZING!

be sure to save the pulp (I am going to add it to our sunday muffins this week)

and LOOK, even big kids like it :D

in fact he liked it so much that he was in much distress when I told him I drank the rest - so we made do with a quick version with strawberries...

I feel great, kiddo loves it.....I think I'm convinced!

Sunday Morning Muffins

What better way to spend sunday morning than in our pj's makin muffins?!?

Kiddo loves to hold and crack the egg, he has discovered what can happen to a dropped egg...therefore handles them very carefully now!

He also practices being a scientist.....look how the liquid changes mom! (after we pour in the oil)

and I get one on one time with Kiddo and breakfast at the same time....YUM!

Gluten Free Banana Mini Muffins....comin right up :D
