May is already half over! I can’t believe how quickly this year seems to be going by. May seems to be a busy month for me with birthdays, races, social gatherings and lots of volunteer shifts. Here are some things going on in and out of the kitchen this month.
Inside of my kitchen is fruit, fruit & lots of fruit. Cherry season just started (and peach!!), which is a very happy time in our household. And I found these raspberries on super sale at Whole Foods. Neither are organic, I strive to buy organic as much as possible, but they are local.
These falafel flavoured roasted chickpeas – super delicious!
The new lara bars!!!! I haven’t tried them yet, but am very excited to give them a go.
Miyoko’s new mozzerella cheeze. The texture is simply amazing. It melts. It browns. It’s transcendental.
These noodles were on sale at Whole Foods and I was surprised at how quickly they cooked. They don’t clump together and are quite good – especially for stirfry noodle bowls.
We were invited to a potluck bbq so I used the noodles to make this magical dish (recipe coming!):
Outside of my kitchen has been fun too! Hikes with Sunny:
Sometimes we meet little critter friends…
Would you believe our dear little Sunny nose-bumped this guy??? Gave me a heart attack. Apparently the poison from their venom can’t kill a dog though. *phew*
My mom sent me a mother’s day gift from Sunny haha:
I added the pin to my volunteer badge to add even more flair:
Outside of my kitchen is an exciting time to try new restaurants like The Butcher’s Son in Berkeley, California. They are a completely vegan delicatessen. I give them two thumb’s up!
The fried mozzerella was the star of the show
Fried Mozzerella and Meatball on Garlic Bread
And May brings nicer weather for races:
I ran a 5km race with my friend’s daughter for Girls on the Run. This very cool organization is geared towards helping girls with inner confidence as well as fostering important relationship with other girls and work on team building experiences. We had a great time and are already talking about doing another run together =)
What’s going on with you this month?
