"You know I always thought unicorns were fabulous creatures too, although I never saw one alive before." "Well now that we have met," said the unicorn, "If you believe in me, I'll believe in you." --lewis carrol
.for the few that do not already know, I am obsessed with green foods .raw salads are my weakness and I am completely willing to eat myself sick on them .there could be worse addictions, right? .and so it goes today
.with the weather here in California crazy-warm for this time of year, the gardens are pushing their goodness upon me at every chance .i have no won't power (willpower, yes because I will eat pretty much any veggie offered) because quite frankly, I enjoy eating a bounty of green .but perhaps I should honor the reality that it is after all, january and toss in a legume or grain?
.this is where being creative comes in .i adore kale but my favorite dish to make with it includes fresh vine-ripe tomatoes which won't be around for quite a time yet .i have a bin of gorgeous cucumbers from the market but after juicing them every morning, a salad of them alone doesn't appeal .and no tomatoes .leftovers from the making of red pepper hummus earlier this week await something to dip into .some bananas from the co-op .alas, what to do?
