Food Shopping and Menus

I'm just back from Harry's Farmers Market. Lots of nutritious and delicious things all ready to be juiced and cooked.

I've got my menus prepared and they all sound so good. Here's what I'll be cooking up... Leek, Chickpea and Harissa (Moroccan hot chili paste/sauce) bread soup, Indian spiced lentils with spinach and tomato served with toasted naan, Roast chicken, Frittata with cremini mushrooms, edamame and Romano cheese. Rob wanted ham dinner so I ordered a Honey Baked and will serve that with gingered carrots, asparagus and potato gratin and use the leftovers for ham and eggs Benedict for brunch one morning. And you can't have a ham dinner in the spring without my Juicy Sweet Fruit Crumble. I'll be using fresh strawberries and rhubarb, yum!

I met a kindred spirit at the market this morning. The cashier asked if some of my veggies were for juice! We both have the same Jack Lalanne Power Juicer and chatted a bit about juicing and how great it makes us feel until the people behind us started to get antsy. Since I haven't mentioned juicing in a while, I will prod you gently. Get yourself a juicer and get juicing. It's one of the best things you can do for your health and energy.
