Pink Juice & Inspirations from the Blogosphere

Our favorite juice last week turned out to be pink - my favorite color! I used the following to make it:
  • 2 heads of organic Romaine lettuce
  • 2 organic apples
  • 3 lemons (not organic), peeled
  • 1 cucumber (not organic), peeled
  • 10 organic strawberries
The toddler insisted on buying the strawberries at the Farmers' Market. Since they were aging fast, I decided to add the last ones to our juice. However, I got in trouble as the toddler was looking for "his" strawberries later that day... Anyway, the juice was delicious! :o)

This week I have decided that I want to make all new recipes. I really hardly ever make the exact same dish twice as I am constantly adjusting seasonings and omitting and adding ingredients. However, there are quite often familiar, slightly altered, repeats on our dinner table... So this week that's about to change as I'm going to cook a new recipe from a different blog every night. I'm excited! So here we go:

Tuesday: Homemade Veggie Burgers. I'll be following Alison's recipe that she just posted last night. Alison makes veggie burgers (and lentil burgers, which I'll make next) all the time and has been experimenting with them, so I know she knows what she is doing. I better don't adjust things too much....

Wednesday: Creamy Kabocha Soup. After reading about and seeing so much kabocha in the blogosphere, I can't believe I have never made it. This recipe is from Jenn, and it sounds like an easy way to getting accustomed with kabocha.

Thursday: Southwestern Chicken and White Bean Soup. I found this on Fittingbackin. It sounds simple, quick, and flavorful - just the way I like it!

Friday: Mediterranean Chickpea Salad. This is Angie's recipe. I love all the flavors in this salad. If I have time, I also plan on experimenting a bit with some cabbage salad; we'll see...

Well, if you have been reading this blog for a while, you know that I really can't follow a recipe, so we'll see what happens this week...

Questions: When was the last time that you made a new recipe? What was it? How did it turn out?

Be well,
