my basket runneth over

today i had my bountiful basket first.
$15 for tons of apples, mini peach things (i'm sure there is a real name),
3 giant oranges, a box of blackberries, a carton of strawberries, a head
of beautiful lettuce, 2 giant cucumbers, 2 yellow squash things (someone
needs to fill me in on what to do with those),  6 avocados, lots of pretty
red tomatoes and a freakin coconut. whoa.
totally worth fifteen bucks.

we're going to be so healthy.
i told you i wanted to eat lots of lettuce.
well now i'm going to eat lots of avocados and squash.

i decided to start it off with a delightful tomato sandwich.
delicious.
*yes. that is a sandwich sitting on the pretty little plate that i am
a tiny bit afraid of. i can handle it. i'm a big girl.

I want to try those! I have heard great things about them! I am also glad to see that someone else likes tomato sandwiches! I just had one today!

Caley said...

ok i'm totally doing this! you've convinced me!

Caley said...

oh, with the yellow squash: slice it like a cucumber, grill or steam it [i prefer steam] then just add a bit of butter and salt and pepper! [squash is like my fav veggie--can you tell?]

You should totally grill the squash.

I cut one up, rub a little extra virgin olive oil on, and smack some pepper on.

Then I grill away with the Foreman!

It's soooooooo delish and healthy.
Have fun!

your tomato sandwich does look good. We've got to get some planted for sure.
