Our food lately...

If you care, here is what we've been eating lately.

This pizza was a winner:

We go to the farmer's market every week, but all winter didn't buy much. But this last week the summer produce was out in full force!
The strawberries were so good and so cheap, and I was told this was the first crop of tomatoes of the season!

If you don't love oatmeal, but realize that it one of the healthiest and least expensive breakfasts around, you should try overnight oats!  I did this week, and it is my new everyday breakfast!  Also, it is soooooooo good with those amazing strawberries from the farmer's market.
(basically, you just mix 1/2 cup of oats with 1 cup of almond milk at night in a tupperware, and then put it in a bowl with berries and a little sugar the next morning. I love the texture, and it is nice not to have hot oatmeal now that it is warm outside.)

As for the tomatoes, I had this amazing salad for lunch.
I used the basil from my own plant!  This salad was so good that Violet ate tomatoes for the first time!  She just kept asking for more, and I was so proud.


  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE California strawberries. Please make some jam or a pie or something cause they're so good and so cheap. You can buy a half flat from people on the side of the road, or that's what we did at least. We went to our farmers market last Saturday because it just reopened, but there wasn't any produce yet. I got some really good gardening tips that I will hopefully put into effect soon. P.S. can I eat at your house?

  2. Yes! I wish I could feed you every day! Someday let's be neighbors. We can take turns making dinner, because you make such good looking (and probably tasting) food!

  3. so what is on your winning pizza?

    1. It is pesto and fresh mozzarella, and then spinach, tomatoes, red bell peppers, and onions. And mushrooms. Basically we had a lot of odds and ends of vegetables to use up on Friday night!
