We plan to going back to regular entries.
Maybe one of y’all know where I got these gorgeous sesame wrap breads? They were so pretty and tasty, and I cannot find them again. I thought I bought them at Walmart with the tortillas or Hungry girl flatbreads but now I cannot find them Boo too, because they were really spectacular! This wrap sandwich contained roasted green Anaheim chills, Roasted yellow squash, zucchini and eggplant, chopped tomato and guacamole and then a little sprinkle of cilantro on this sesame bread wrapper. Way to go leftovers! Leftovers from a grilling fiesta the day before! I even had some leftover guac! So while it is definitely involved from scratch it was a quick lunch that day.
Richard, Zack and I all tried them. The texture of the sprouted wheat is tasty and substantial. It makes amazing toast and sandwiches. We put some home made raspberry freezer jam on ours and fresh tomatoes and avocados on the sandwich. Both were excellent.
I make my own bread and I still really liked this and will buy it. They have lots of other sprouted grain products that I will give a try, Particularly the rye one, that sounds interesting, doesn’t it? The products seem to be available all around the U.S. They have pretty impressive distribution.

When I feel a mite “peckish” like they say in regency romance novels, if I am near grocery store that has a sushi guy, ( many of them in our area do nowadays) I get a sushi roll snack.
I love that sushi ginger and could eat it just plain. But I do like to smother my veggie sushi in it. Like this blurry picture. You can get one of these for under 5 bucks, don’t feel guilty, has some nutrition even. Tasty vegetarian snackage.
I like the ones where they have really teensy julienne veggies in them. One place near us makes that style. I have made these at home but only for more than one person.
Ahh turnips, so sweet and crispy, I love them raw. My mom used to peel fresh vegetables and hand them to us raw to eat, including odd ones like potatoes, turnips and even raw corn from the field. The closer you are to the the soil where it was grown the more you do this, I guess?
Well I bought a whole box of turnips from the farmer’s market cheap! like 8 bucks for 40 lbs. I could not give them away! Perhaps I am the lonely only soul who loves them this much. I even told folks to try them raw, after a day they began to stink, pretty badly and my husband tossed them out, comparing them to death and stinky feet.
He said not even for a good deal would he waste the fridge space. Alas poor turnips, I knew you well—I can only sneak you in a baggie at a time. I toss them in soup all the time along with parsnips, which they also hate. I think my father liked steamed turnips, or mama, I remember eating them cooked as a kid too.
I didn’t taste these at the produce show, But I have bought them before. We are such foodies that we will try most any vegetable that is new. Love the color on these. They taste the same and cook the same as regular cauliflower but add such pizazz to your salads.
One of my favorite cauliflower sales is a cold crunchy one. You just take the cauliflower. make flowerettes and then slice them about 1/4″ thick. Toss the slices with ranch dressing and some curry powder to taste. It is a great make ahead sale because it can sit in the fridge even overnight and just tastes better the next day. With these fancy cauliflowers it would be a vibrant white, green, and lavendar!
We found local Texas cantaloupe and they are huge and way tasty.
What better way to finish off a meal then to sit in the porch, the sun setting and the cool evening breeze starting to stir. The shadows grow longer as we sit and eat these pieces of nature’s candy.
No high fructose corn syrup or fancy packaging.
Just a quick pic of the beautiful strawberry waffle Zack made me for Mother’s day. I had actually messed it up a bit by spreading the cream around. Yes, There is a little whipped cream….He had all the strawberry slices lined up point out around the rim of the circle like a rose. It was lovely and tasty too! He just used fresh sliced strawberries and pancake mix.
I bought myself one of these wellness mats for my kitchen over a year ago and then I bought a second one, It alleviates so much back and knee pain from standing on my ceramic tile floor and chopping veggies for hours.
This picture is of someone else’s, mine are three times this long. www.wellnessmats.com I use them to make the “L” shape of all my countertops where I knead bread, chop veggies and even under the sink where I do dishes.
I am so crazy about them! Every woman who stands in my kitchen adores them. My first was the plain surface and the second one has a design, It is more about the utility for me. My husband bought me a smaller one from another company and there just isn’t enough padding. so it is under the stove. I probably will replace it soon with one that matches better.
I saw Cat Cora stand on this for over an hour in spike heels without even a dent. Amazing. I know she doesn’t weigh that much being so petite and all, but still, spiky heels, really spiky.
I like the plain industrial style, my kitchen is not that fancy, but now they are making covers for them and more patterns and colors, whoopee!
Treat yourself to one. Really. You. Will. Thank. Me.
