Garden Update

The garden is awesome!  Zucchini, tomatoes, kale, everywhere!



Next year I absolutely need to keep the kale, tomatoes, zucchini, and basil.  I should also plant parsley again because that’s really great for the bean recipes.  I was much better this year about making dishes using ingredients from the garden.  On the left I made this recipe with kale, avocados, lemon juice, and pine nuts.  On the right I made this recipe of quinoa with chickpeas and patty pan squash.



This is the same kale dish and this recipe of red bell peppers, red onion, and chickpeas.  It’s supposed to have bulgur too, but I was dumb and bought barley which takes much longer to cook.



If you’re too lazy to make a meal, you can just shred some kale, tomatoes, and I added some goat cheese that dad bought us.  Thanks dad!


I have a huge stockpile of zucchini and patti pan squash.  As soon as I take my final on Wednesday I’m going to make loads of zucchini bread.


By the way, I created an Instagram account so I could post pictures of my food and pictures of the weird things you see in Salt Lake City.  I see the strangest things when I run to work in the morning and I started recording them.  Last week someone put spices on the sidewalk with a sign saying they’re free.  I have evidence.  So check it out!

    I’m impressed! You’re so motivated not only growing such a great garden, but then actually cooking lots of tasty meals with it all.

    I see you’re on endomondo now! Do you like it so far?

    Haha, yeah last year I grew the garden and then didn’t do much with it. This feels a lot more satisfying. :-)

    Endomondo is good so far. I had to switch apps because I bought an Android phone that doesn’t support my Cyclemeter app. Boo! I need to keep playing around with it. I’m addicted to competing against myself as a run or bike to work and I haven’t figured out those features yet.

    I think you have to buy the pro version to compete with yourself. I think it’s only like 4 dollars one time though, so not too much of an investment.

    No wonder I couldn’t get it to work!
