My goodness, it was a long week! It was warm again, it rained quite a bit, we saw several snakes, the pollen has kicked up and I pulled several ticks off of Jonathan. This all means that spring is really here!Photo credit
Food for Thought
We purchase 1/4 of a cow each spring and we’re down to 2 lbs. of ground beef left from last year. We’re even out of bones! We won’t get our next 1/4 of beef until the end of April so I was resigned to just buying some store bought beef.
- Until I read this article on pink slime in ground beef. Dude. We’re eating chicken for the next month.
- There’s one particular comment that got me thinking-Is it really impossible to put together decently healthy meals shopping just at Walmart? I don’t think so, and this post at Kitchen Stewardship is heading in the direction my thoughts are.
Food to Eat
- Of course David didn’t eat any (“It’s chick food”), but I made this quinoa salad from Two Peas and Their Pod and it is awesome! I can see it’s going to be my summer staple. I didn’t have black quinoa so I just used regular.
