yum!!

A few reviews... and a recipe! 

How's your day going?   Mine is good... I've gotten quite a bit accomplished... and I made a yummy lunch...
I created olive tapenade/hummus.  I was going to make tapenade, and hummus, but realized I could just do them together!!  It was good... 

Olive Tapenade Hummus

1 can Olives, rinsed in warm water to take away the saltiness
1 cloves of Garlic
1/2 cup of walnuts
lemon juice to taste
1/4 cup of grapeseed oil
1 can rinsed chickpeas
 Using a food processor, whiz everything to desired consitancy

Serve with pita bread and veggies.




                                                                     


I also tried my Amazing Grass _ I have to be honest.  I didn't love it.   After all the hype I feel a bit let down...   That being said I will try it again and see what I think.  Maybe a different green monster flavor.  (I just did it with frozen banana, 1 scoop amazing grass, spinach and soya milk)   I didn't even finish it... boo..
But I feel like maybe I am missing something!!


As for where I was this weekend,  Dave took me up to his worksite for 2 nights.  We drove for 3 hours and then took a 45 min boat ride to the middle of nowhere!     Here was our boat... 

The amazing scenery...


Not sure if you can see, but there are a whole bunch of seals on those rocks!!

Lance loved the boat ride...   He couldn't get enough of it.  
Then once we were there, he freaked out and jumped (or fell) into the water.
If Dave hadn't have gone out at that exact moment, he probably would have become a merdog.. ;)
There was a sneaky little otter that was teasing him the whole time.



  When we got there we got some scallops, unfortunately I wasn't feeling well and didn't eat any....



Then I caught a fish-black cod.. which we also didn't eat.  But we did bring it home for dinner soon!!

Then our days on the ocean were over... and we headed home earlish... it was a beautiful ride...


All and all we had a good trip, it was very beautiful out there, but made me appreciate home,  I love our little house and our life here on solid ground!!

Hope you enjoyed the pictures.  Gota go find something to make for dinner...and finish off a few things.

  1. You know, now that I think about it, I see why you would find it gritty ... it just doesn't bother me that much.

    Another idea is that maybe you could just use less of the powder, because since you are putting spinach in, you are still doing good for veggies.

    Lovely photos today girl! You look really happy with that big fish!
