Okay, I hadn't planned on this. You were going to get
some great shots of LA's Union Station. Maybe later.
It started with a salad for lunch, and an avocado.
This little avocado seed said "save me, I can grow".
I hadn't planned on it, and was foggy on how. Google!
explains to remove the skin at the base, who knew?
Now to show I have done this before, just not lately.
On my patio is an avocado tree.
This 12' beauty came from my seed about 14 years ago.
I couldn't get the whole tree in one shot.
Stop looking at my messy patio! I am in a loosing
battle with a 50' pine tree, with attacking pine needles.
Back to the salad. Baby arugula, basil and my avocado.
Meanwhile, I am cooking 3 pounds of spinach in my wok!
Thats a bag the size of your bed pillow, added a little at a time.
Add feta cheese ... mmmm.
and strawberries ...
Check the spinach. Yes, that's 3 pounds cooked down.
Lemon juice from Marsha's lemon tree and pine nuts.
Did you know pine nuts are $18.99 a pound?
I bought $3.84 worth of pine nuts and am tempted
to count them to see the cost per.
I add the juice of half of Marsha's lemon, seeded,
then cut it it in quarters to boil with the spinach.
Yes, I discard the lemons before eating.
If you're not a spinach lover, have you tried this?
It's good for you!
My lunch is ready.
I'm no Julia Childs, but I'd love to be 6'2".
