sweet solstice

:: The first of the summer berries from the market. Especially tasty since I was on my own with the boys without a fuss. Lots of smiles, swings, apple chips and honey sticks enjoyed by all.

:: Just the right soup for my depleted nursing, sleep challenged body. Lots of bok choy, tofu and nourishing broth.

:: Finishing up the swap package to send off to my partner next week.

:: Looking forward to some popcorn made the old-fashioned way and a classic with my oh-so-patient sweetie who knows how to apply the rescue remedy just at the right time.

Happy solstice everyone!

  1. Ohh, those both look so tasty! Mm.

    I love old-fashioned popcorn. It just tastes better.

  2. In case you don’t check my blog for it, here’s the recipe for the watermelon salad!


    * 3/4 cup halved, thinly sliced red onion
    * 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
    * 1 1/2 quarts seeded, cubed watermelon
    * 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
    * 1/2 cup pitted black olive halves (kalamata would be even better!)
    * 1 cup chopped fresh mint
    * 2 tablespoons olive oil


    1. Place the onion slices in a small bowl with the lime juice. The acid of the lime will mellow the flavor of the raw onion. Let stand for 10 minutes.
    2. In a large bowl, combine the watermelon cubes, feta cheese, black olives, onions with the lime juice, and mint. Drizzle olive oil over it all, and toss to blend
