We’ve been quite busy with family visits and morning hockey practices and various types of work of course, and Avi seems to be a bit under the weather with a sore throat and sad tummy. But I’ve been buying smaller clothes (!!), and other good things are on the horizon, so I don’t really have too much to complain about. I do, however, need these occasional quiet evenings where I can make my own dinner and relax on the couch after he goes to bed. It’s a nice balance to the running around (figuratively and literally) I do the rest of the day.
Our CSA box came today. Apples, hydroponic lettuce, radishes, chevre (soft goat’s milk cheese), parsnips, salad greens and crimini mushrooms. Are you thinking what I’m thinking, Pinky?
Yup, I thought so. But what else? I saved the radishes for D and decided not to tackle the parsnips tonight. I added tomatoes (of course) and some seared tuna that I made in the cast iron skillet the other night.
Seriously? I just finished eating this and am absolutely stuffed, yet this picture makes me want to eat it all over again. Good quality raw/seared tuna is definitely one of my top five foods. Holy cow. I mean fish.
Plus the mushrooms and my staple dressing (that’s the Bolthouse Farms Yogurt Dressing – Chunky Blue Cheese, of course) and I’d call that a very fine salad, indeed.
Eaten on the couch. Because I can. Simple pleasures.
