I had a Marvelous relaxing weekend. I hope every one of you did the same. I cleaned out the fridge this weekend and in doing so I created new recipes from veggies that needed to be used.
After juicing several carrots, an apple, a whole golden beet, I used the root, stems and leaves and one lemon, I blended the juice with vanilla protein powder to make a fantastic carrot smoothie.
I used the carrot pulp to make some Carrot Cranberry Muffins. I topped the second batch with some oats and brown sugar crumble. They were good, but I think the recipe needs some tweaking.
Sometimes I overdo it at the grocery and buy too much, and with my busy weeks even thought I have good intentions I just can’t get around to preparing all I purchase. So for dinner I sautéed brussel sprouts and baby broccoli to make a pasta salad. After chopping the veggies I put the veggies I didn’t use in freezer bags to freeze for future use. Marvelous way to have fresh veggies on hand. Dinner by the way was Marvelous!!!
It’s going to be a Marvelous week! I have a new supervisor at work so this week all of the Center Directors will be meeting with him. It will be a chance for him to get to know each of us better and for us to learn a little more about who he is and his expectations. I’m looking forward to the meeting.
