I'm loving this stuff

(click on any photo to enlarge it)

Yes, it's purple, because it has cabbage in it. Sort of a salsa/sauerkraut. I love it but I can eat only one heaping tablespoon at a time, because, well because it's like sauerkraut.

So this morning I sauteed some potatoes with turmeric in butter and olive oil, scrambled two eggs, put a little ketchup on the potatoes, with the Live Salsa on the side, and savored every delicious bite.

Instead of coffee I had a cup of Matcha, something I just started yesterday. It's supposed to be very good for you. Friends say so, Dr. Weil says so. Amen.

It's expensive, but if you actually get 75 cups out this, as the label says, then it comes to about 24 cents a cup, which I think is very reasonable. The orange thing is a squash.

A squash that looks like a bird.

I've but him in his nest for the night.

Your quite a foodie! Your meal sounds great, but I do agree, I don't know if my stomach could handle too much of the live salsa! My dad cans about 60 pints of salsa that we grow most of the ingredients for each I am spoiled, and it's hard for me to eat store bought. Your lifestyle looks very appealing, like what I dream of!

I love your bird squash!!!! I think you should build it a nest (a proper nest! not a nest with tomatoes!!), and perhaps find it a squash friend. That would be sweet. :)

The salsa/cabbage sounds really interesting - and I've not heard of that tea (but think I will try and find it).

homemade and homegrown salsa sounds delicious! Your comment about my "lifestyle" took me by surprise, because I guess we never think of ourselves as having a lifestyle, but we all do!

I'm afraid squashes don't live long enough to wait for me to make them a nest and find them a mate :-)
