My first homemade “Haystack.”
I’ve had this kind of meal at Church dinners but
had never made one. Whew! This is good.
Here’s what I did :
Layered Chopped Napa & Purple Cabbage, Kale,
Cucumber, Celery, Spinach, Onion, Shredded Cooked Beets.
And then topped with combination of Beans, Mushrooms,
Crushed Tomatoes, Peas, Chopped Red Onion,
all cooked in Crockpot.
Seasoned Crockpot mixture with Cumin, Basil, Oregano,
Chives, Celery Seed Powder, Mustard Powder, Black Pepper.
Seasoned greens with Cumin, Mustard Powder, Celery Powder, Chives. Added some Baked Pita Chips. Thanking God for a Ninja Food Processor which made easy work of the chopping and shredding.
Added a little Salsa.
This recipe targets Heart Health including several ingredients that
add Nitrogen Oxide to the body — Napa Cabbage, Kale, Spinach, Beets.
Mushrooms provide added Vitamin D.
My energy waxes and wanes so I’ve learned to maximize the times energy is better. I’m marinating Brussel Spouts and Napa Cabbage; and making barbecued Soy Curls; and Marinating Portobello Mushroom Slices, Onions, and Carrots. Good, nutritious eating to come.
This was supposed to be Braided Challah Bread.
I ran out of energy, so the result is SIMPLY DELicIOUS Bread,￼
soft in center and crispy on outside. The whole truth is I thought
I was making the Cranberry Banana bread, I simply luv.
Without my knowing, the cookbook pages fliped and because
both recipes call for Banana, I didn’t notice I was making
Challah Bread until I was a third way through the ingredients.
It has been a challenging day
with even routine activities being awfully difficult. But, there’s warm bread to feast on.
All is well!
Spaghetti Squash Stir-Fry
Spaghetti Squash Stir-fry including some Ramen Noodles.
Whew! My tummy thanked me. Haha!
Explanation— I had baked the Spaghetti Squash with Vegs, Herbs, Okra (In gallery)
A couple days ago and had some left over. My pallet wanted something new so I scraped Into iron skillet
the remaining Spaghetti Squash-Okra and added some of what I had in fridge
(Onion, Yellow Squash, Mushrooms, Kale). Then added some cooked Ramen Noodles
to further please my taste buds. (Insert smile)

When I can’t think of what to eat, I turn to my pictures of

That’s one reason I post pictures of my food. (Insert smile)

and tastes good.) Turmeric, Basil. Steamed VEGS & Brown Rice.
