It is finally beginning to feel like summer in the mountains! My heirloom tomato plants have little baby tomatoes finally and the rest of my plants are growing like crazy. I can’t wait to be able to put them outside and plant my outdoor garden. We’ve also been getting awesome organic boxes from Door to Door Organics, filled with delicious fruits and vegetables- perfect for juicing materials.
Our new Whole Foods has been open for a few weeks now and it is awesome. I am so excited to be working such a great company, plus it is so nice to finally have good food available to us up in the mountains! The only downside is that I am tempted to buy everything, every time I work. Although I think I am going to need to pace myself when it comes to buying things from work.
It may be spring where most of you are, but in the mountains spring means warm sunny days scattered throughout big wet snowstorms. We have started lots of herbs in our window, but are just waiting for REAL Summit County spring (aka summer) to come so that we can plant our vegetables outside! As the saying goes, April showers bring May flowers right? Next time you are stuck inside on a rainy day, enjoy this comforting and absolutely delicious dinner. The recipe calls for only a half a bottle of wine, which means some left over to enjoy while you relax and listen to the rain.
