I'm a curious kid. I remember hearing someone say in my youth, "You can't learn everything there is to know in this world - there's just too much!" and being determined to prove them wrong. Of course that notion is ridiculous and we all "know what we know and don't know what we don't know". Learning is endless.
Some of my biggest curiosities (this month) are about the kitchen. Cuisine. What we put in our bodies. I'm hosting a vegan party in a few weeks and the reason is threefold: 1) my friend found out she is allergic to milk 2) my dad is a heart attack patient and teaching him how to eat healthy is important to me 3) I'm obsessed with learning new recipes. Okay, and I'm a social butterfly who loves to have parties AND my garden is growing by the second - gotta do something with these veggies.
I like to use the vegetables that I know will come from the garden, and then search on awesome websites like Epicurious.com and KrisCarr.com to see what others have come up with. (Let me know your favorite summer recipes in the comments below!)
The other night I made squash-and-zucchini patties (omit the butter and make it healthier!) and stuffed mushrooms. This morning I made a home-grown kale, avocado, date, banana, blueberry, coconut water, turmeric, cinnamon smoothie for breakfast and tonight I finished the day off with homemade tabbouleh and hummus. So yum!
