"Thank you California" for providing the entire USA with so many
special things to eat! Driving back from the north to the Bay Area we
passed through amazing agricultural landscapes.
Orchards of fruit trees, olives, and nuts ran for what looked like
miles toward the horizon.
Fields of cabbages, Brussels sprouts, artichokes and more. . . . . . . .
the endless swathes of green fields interspersed with rich brown soil held
so many healthy foods.
The workers in the fields waved when we stopped to grab a few
photos - even beckoned to us, laughing, to come help pick! They work very hard,
it must be back-breaking day after day bringing in the fresh produce in its prime.
We need to think of them and thank them when we shop in comfort for our
precious vegetables and fruits.
. . . . . . . and look at lucky me!
A fabulous Birthday gift from my granddaughter who
knows how much I love my veggies, both to eat and cook.
I am over the moon with this amazing cook book from the
English chef and leading food authority, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
It contains everything I would ever want to prepare in my own
little cottage - beautiful simple, colorful, full of vitality, vegetarian
Bring on the greens. . . . . and let's eat healthy.
And thank you dear Jasmin for always picking the perfect presents.
