- Pluats, a cross between plums and apricots (SO delicious)
- Raspberries, tay berries and blackberries
- Swiss Chard
- Red candy onions
- White zuchini and green zuchini

- Lots and lots of kale
Anyways, here's what I've been cooking this week. As always, I've personally tried each and every recipe listed here, and they've been a huge success. I hope you'll like them as well.
- Herbed-Baked Eggs by Ina Garten (I added sauteed kale, cheddar cheese and red onions to mine)
- Chai Tea from Eating from the Ground Up
- Oven Fried Onion Rings from Zoom Yummy
- Instant Cocoa Mix from Take Back Your Table
- Onion Soup with Garlic Croutons from Eating from the Ground Up
- Homemade Coffee Creamer from Deliciously Organic (Cinnamon Strudel and Peppermint mocha were the ones I made)
You might notice all of these are vegetarian. This is totally on accident, but my mom pointed it out and I thought it was pretty cool. My family went vegetarian for a few months last year, and we've just never totally transitioned from it. We still eat bacon, chicken and fish, but not much else. We buy the majority of our meat from a local, organic, grass-fed farm. The current method of corporate agriculture is awful to the animals, so our lack of meat consumption is largely compassion-based, but it's also health based. Too much meat just isn't healthy for you.
So, if you're interested, give it a try. It's pretty cool being a vegetarian. And you don't even have to eat soy!
There are lots of amazing foods you can still have being vegetarian. I love cooking so many lovely recipes. It makes my mealtime, and through it my life, absolutely beautiful and delicious. :)
