This morning was an early wake up call. I had a quick breakfast before heading up to the farm. This would be my new obsession:
Now, I have always loved almond butter. However, Justin’s Maple Almond Butter takes things to a whole new level. I spread some of this on top of Nashoba Brook Bakery’s Harvest bread. It is a little local bakery and they make the best bread. Combined with coffee and blueberries for a delicious and nutritious breakfast.
The farm was pretty busy today. We harvested the whole time. Starting off with Swiss Chard and eight hours later ending with those darn beans! I love my beans, but I sure is heck have trouble filling my buckets fast enough. By the time we got to the beans my back and hamstrings were pretty numb so pain wasn’t a problem, I just didn’t feel like bending over anymore. On top of that, the rows of beans seemed to never end. Every time I thought I had made a lot of progress, I would stand up straight for a moment to take a look towards the end of the row, and it still seemed to be a million miles away. Beans…..I just can’t seem to catch a break. I wish you weren’t so tasty because then I truly could hate you. However, hard work at the farm really does pay off. Lunch was this tasty creation:
This would be a whole wheat pita smothered with Hummus (from Ragab) tomatoes, basil, peas, olive oil and balsamic drizzle. With a side of cherry tomatoes and a zucchini. Food like this puts a smile on my face.
Off to stuff some peppers for dinner. I will let you know how they turn out. If they are good, I well post the recipe!!!
