I Was Out of Veggies

So there was a quick trip to the grocery store first thing this morning.

I wanted to grill a whole cut-up chicken for dinner (noon for me), and I needed veggies to go with the chicken.

I came home with full sacks, and set about grilling the chicken and prepping the veggies (more of the little gold potatoes boiled and set into raw butter and fresh dill and sautéed rainbow chard).

While cooking the chicken (low and slow), I made fresh blender drinks (celery, red bell pepper, carrot, cucumber, apple, peaches, cherries, blueberries, cranberries, and a tiny bit of maple syrup). Now I’ll have a healthy dessert after supper tonight. I forgot the ginger, but the drinks are still delicious. Note: Most of the mixture is veggie, not fruit. I just use bits of fruit–maybe 1/4 of the mixture. Too much fruit sugar causes inflammation and sends the body into an energy pattern that goes up and down rather than holding long and steady.

I took my full plate to the outdoor room with my book. I didn’t eat all these potatoes I cut up–too much–so they went into the roasted veggie container alongside the rest of the rainbow chard–and I’ll have that container with some chicken for supper.

I made a nice dinner yesterday too: Baked haddock, okra (yes!), a medley of roasted veggies, sliced cucumber, and a glass of local raw milk.

“Wyoming Stars” is off the long arm, trimmed, bound, and is downstairs in the tv room where I am sewing on its binding at night. Here it is fresh off of Innova.

I am still marveling at the beautiful, beautiful stitch Innova makes–front and back.

  1. Hello Louisa,

    I have been following you for quite some time now and cannot recall how the heck I became acquainted with your blog. I am not a quilter but a sometime sewer from the long ago past, but I love seeing your work and learning about quilting.
    AND …
    I love how you eat, I love how you live, I love that you are back near your family. I miss reading about you in Maine (we have family there; we are in Minnesota). We have family in S Carolina too. I know your terrain.
    I am writing today to share a website that a friend and several of her friends have put together to share their love of quilting and their love of service. I thought you might like to know of it. I am going to forward your blog to her as well as I think she might like it, too.

    Kind Regards,

    Nancy K
