The first thing that comes to mind with the word julienne is cooking because a chef juliennes vegetables in order to add to something else.
I used to love cooking but there came a time when it seemed like more of a chore than something that I enjoyed. In hindsight I think it was because cooking was shared. It was making pies or cookies with grandma. Watching my Mom make date squares for church. Making chocolate chip cookies for bible study.
I’ve definitely started eating healthier since I go to the farmers market. Today I picked up some asparagus and I will have a hash for lunch. I purchased a couple of meals from my usual place and my freezer is nice and full. I’m pretty sure I’m going to get tired of chicken as the store had thighs on sale. I will admit that although her meals are healthy a lot of it I had no idea what it was. I hate beans so if it has lentils or chick peas it’s not for me. I only eat chick peas blended for hummus. I’m currently enjoying my morning coffee on my balcony. I told a friend recently that I took time to realize that I was worth it. Although to be honest eating healthy is good for all of us.
Pretty soon we will be into summer festival time. Ribfest. It’s great to be able to walk to the park and get a grab and go lunch. Try new things. The only down side is summer is the season when I need to carry cash!
Since I was born on summer solstice it’s why I love summer. Oh not 90 plus degree weather the days when it’s sunny and just warm enough to sit outside. Things slow down in the summer so there is time to get together with a friend for coffee. Maybe go shopping.
