no problem Amanda. I probably wouldn't have seen the PM in time either!
I have a bunch of veggies from my CSA waiting for me to dice. And tomorrow is the pickup date. Sometimes with a toddler I don't feel like dirtying up the cutting board, knife, storage container and cleaning up all the scraps. I don't know why but it just takes a while with her impatiently "supervising".
I'm pretty lazy about the bread though- I buy Alvarado Street Bakery sprouted grain breads. Hopefully that is close to OK. Or pain au levain sourdough bread.
I did make a batch of chicken stock last week with organic free range whole chicken and froze some of the stock in cubes and made some green chile stew. Yummy, but a bit of work. It was so cool to put it in the fridge and see it gelatinize properly. Fresher and a bit cheaper and low salt compared to the store bought stuff. I was so proud of myself.
DH buys regular milk for himself (yuck!) and lets me get organic. I am going to start getting raw next week though. He will probably freak. His parents grew up on dairy farms and he thinks the industry is still a lot like that. He doesn't realize about the impact of big business, bovine growth hormones, homogenization, etc, etc.
His parents are on mostly a "low fat" diet. Lots of ground turkey burgers, turkey lunchmeat (salt and preservative city there), canned vegetables (yuck), and fat free milk and supermarket bread. THey are visiting next week.
Last year I made a nice pear crostada with fresh whipping cream and MIL turned it down. They would rather have fat free Cool Whip 'cause it's fatfree.
Bless their hearts though, they are the nicest people. FIL loved my lamb stew though and after having sauteed kale asked me how to cook greens even (he doesn't cook!) They are trying to eat more greens and fresh veggies now.
