Old veggies and other tid bits
I do not like to waste vegetables. They have traveled far to get to my kitchen and into my fridge for future meal prep. I bought a cauliflower about 8 days ago, meaning to prepare it right away. Well, I forgot about it until today. It still looked okay, but did have a few brown spots. I cut those off. I steamed the remaining parts with some onions and some herbs. When I served it, I brushed on some spaghetti sauce. The spaghetti sauce obscured the lack of freshness of it and it tasted great!
Down one pound! Plus, I was able to exercise several times last week, including long walks and a few short bike rides. I had my road bike turned, cleaned and greased for the season last week. I hope to take it out for the first time this year tomorrow.
The monarchs are leaving Mexico (http://www.learner.org/…/monar…/spring2015/update032615.html)! To prepare for their eventual arrival to the Upper Midwest, Owen and Noah helped me frost seed some common milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) in sunny spots near our cabin (http://www.startribune.com/sports/outdoors/297695391.html).
Have great week everyone!
