Where the Appalachian Trail starts, and home to some of the oldest mountains in the world.
It's very beautiful here.
I've been trying to post some pics, but I think blogger is having some issues.
Last night's dinner;
Thin slices of rib eye, sauteed with garlic, onion, portobello mushrooms, spinach, asparagus and some raw endive on top for crunch.
First saute the mushrooms, garlic and onion, then add the thin sliced meat. Set aside. In same pan toss in diced asparagus and spinach. 2 glasses of red wine.
Simple. easy and tasty.
(nope, just tried again...won't let me upload pics)

The reason is two fold. 1. It's one of those items that I just can't seem to remember ( kind off like certain phone numbers that never seem to stick) and 2. It irks me how expensive they are ;-)
$18 for 2 crv3's. It's kind of crazy if you ask me. Anywho, I'm good to go for a while and will have many new pics to share. I will be on vacation this coming week, but will post meal and scenery pics.
Here's a quick summary of meal ideas for you from the last few days;
1. Anna's burgers. I cal them that now, since I got the idea from her to add a little parmesan. See this post http://feelgoodeating.blogspot.com/2008/06/thank-you-anna.html
2. Grilled flounder with grilled asparagus.
3. Rotisserie chicken with salad. This is easy when you are out of inspiration and you need something quick. Buy a rotisserie chicken and a bag of mixed greens, tomato and scallions. Toss with dressing of choice, I use "Grandma's". Slice and chop some of the chicken on top of it. Eat and enjoy.
4. Chicken cucumber salad. Left over rotisserie chicken diced and chopped, add one diced cucumber. If you want, add a little feta. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic.
5. Rump roast. Cube the roast in bite sized pieces, simmer on low heat for approx. 2 hours.
This will leave you with some incredibly soft meat. You can now stir fry it, or saute it with the sauce of your choice. Try some coconut milk and curry for starters.
6. Breakfast on the go; almonds and blueberries.
Her name is Annie, but I call her crazy ;-)

"... I have seen that in any great undertaking it is not enough for a man to depend simply upon himself."
This house is located on the point where the bay flows into the gulf of Mexico. Not a bad spot right?
Same pass; boat going in and some people enjoy the beach and the views.
And some sunset shots; I never get tired of seeing the amazing sunsets here.

This half of the log. Hope you can make it out from the lousy pic. It has nice strands of the basil throughout.
Also used some of the butter to saute some shallots, then added asparagus.
As you can tell from the green color, I like my asparagus on the raw side. Saute them quick and it has a real nice flavor.
Make it a great day!!!!!

The recent news is showing us that a gallon of milk cost more then $4.00.
Take a look;
This a 2.5 pound bag of spinach, (not from Mexico or China), from California. It sells at Costco for $4.95. What should we be consuming anyway? Our highly processed milk or spinach? It's all a matter of choices
and I'll say again that eating healthy does NOT have to break the bank, on the contrary, in these economic times, it might even be cheaper.
And now for something completely different;
Red cabbage "Cole-slaw" with cucumber, yogurt and red curry. Dissolve a little bit of red curry paste in water. 1/4 tsp perhaps. shred and dice the red cabbage and cucumber, add approx. 3 tbsps of greek yogurt. Don't know what possesed me to throw this together, but it is real tasty.
The picture is a little bright ;-)
Have a wonderful 4th of July everyone. Use that grill and don't eat any potato salad or chips ;-)
Remember to smile today and put a little love in your heart.
