To recreational slicing!…but that part comes last.
It was dark and dreary when I got up this morning so my pictures aren’t so nice, but I started the day with a tasty shot of wheatgrass juice with a big squeeze of lime.
As well as a bowl of chia oatgurt with the leftover raw strawberry jam I made yesterday.
For lunch I brought a mini, super strength green monster (less water than usual) of kale and peach.
And some kabocha with ketchup.
Plus some Pumpkin Pie Bites. I had two, the rest were for sharing.
When I got home I got myself into trouble. I bought a mandoline slicer yesterday, but had to go back to exchange it this afternoon because 2/3 pieces in the box were missing. So when I brought it home today, I was excited to try it out. I managed to do a very nice job of julienning zucchini, but then I went to far. I was going to blend some tomatoes, but I wanted to see how well the mandoline would do slicing them. So just for fun I started slicing. It wasn’t particularly easy due to the thick skin and non-serrated mandoline blade, but it was working well enough. Then I was a bit too forceful and slipped and sliced into two of my finger tips! The ironic thing was that I was using the handguard. A few minutes before hand, I was very slowly, feeding the last slice of zucchini through without the guard, and my roomie warned me to be careful, but it wasn’t until I switched back to using the safety device I hurt myself! I’ll spare you picture, but let’s just say washing my hair tonight it going to be tricky, a one handed affair.
So I was starving, but I wanted to wait for the bleeding to stop before proceeding with dinner preparatations, so I started off with the Starbucks Raspberry Peach yogurt parfait that was hanging out in the fridge.
A while later I finished making my real dinner. I came up with this in my head way before seeing Gena’s post yesterday, but it’s so tasty it deserves a shoutout, plus Guacanara is a pretty fantastic name. I blended two tomatoes (kumatos!) and an avocado with a few sprigs each of rosemary, thyme, and sage from my window garden. So, so good!
Did anyone else notice the green/red pattern throughout the day like I just did?
