Sometimes I’m lousy at feeding myself. I would never suggest Matt and I eat ice cream for supper, but somehow it’s acceptable when I’m home alone. Cookies and milk? Sounds swell to me! Chips, salsa, and beer? Sure! I’ve never claimed to be disciplined.
But last week there was a minor success. I made a delicious, nutritious meal just for myself. Granted it’s an easier task in the spring and summer when I crave healthier food and more variety is available. My internal Cookie Monster goes into some sort of reverse hibernation. Spring and summertime meals often consist of variations on salads, fresh fruit and veggies, cheese, and crackers or bread. Some of my favorite eating experiences come from this type mixing and matching of simple ingredients with fancy condiments.
Not only was my meal an accomplishment in itself, it also happened to be the first kale harvest. The kale is coming along nicely, though I noticed one white moth and some eggs on the leaves. Tomorrow I’ll spray off the eggs and any lingering moths with the force of the water nozzle.
