Do you ever find yourself wondering in what ways you can be more resourceful? For example, the other day I made this delicious carrot, apple, and ginger juice blend that was simply delicious. I did not want to throw the leftover pulp into the compost as I normally would, so I decided to give this recipe from Joy the Baker a try. I’m not typically big on soups but something about this brisk country air makes me crave more hearty foods and with the help of a vitamix, soup making is quite easy and painless. Buen Provecho!
Yesterday was Mother’s birthday. I spent most of the previous week recruiting her friends for a surprise dinner at one of her favorite restaurants, Salute in Hartford. It was really lovely to see her reaction when she saw her friends there. I tell you, it’s the little things in life. Another reason that I also happen to love Salute besides their great Italian food, is the fact that they have gluten free options for the whole menu, all they have to do is substitute the glutenous pasta with a gluten free one made my De Cecco. I had to ask, it was that good. I ordered the Rose pasta: It had sweet sausage, mushrooms, and spinach in a light tomato cream sauce with gluten free ziti. I can’t tell you how delicious it was!
