Though only our second summer in Oregon, I feel like it’s taken me and Donnie way too long to really start to enjoy the fresh fruits around here. We’ve been consuming lots of cherries, strawberries, blueberries, and a few raspberries and blackberries. I need to go back to the Farmer’s Market this Saturday and load up on more! And hopefully soon, I’ll venture out into the You-Pick berry farms.
My lunch this afternoon was probably the healthiest lunch I’ve ever had (excluding a few salads). Here’s a yummy picture of it:
It’s one of the Pacific Natural Foods soups (Buttery Cream Corn) to which I added sauteed onions and red bell peppers and a little cayenne pepper. And then next to that are cherries, fresh bell peppers, and a kiwi. Mmmm. (Mom, aren’t you proud as well as shocked and awed?)
I chopped up a couple of onions last week as well as two red bell peppers and have them in the freezer now to pull out whenever I want to add them to my meals. I don’t know why I didn’t do that sooner!
AND, I’ve cut my hair–almost 8 inches! Here’s a picture of that:
