This week for WIAW Green Edition, I felt like going green by growing green! We did get a lot of rain Monday night through Tuesday morning, and now our grass is very green, but that’s not what I’m talking about.
I’m talking about growing green onions, or scallions, if you will. I read about a handy way to re-grow a bundle of green onions from the store by saving the bottom white portion. Simply chop, all the green stems and use as you like, but then save the white part and put in a glass of water to let sit several days.
In our home, we love to use green onions on salads (I have one almost every night) and Kelley dumps them in her specialty dish of Annie’s Homegrown Organic Whole Wheat Mac and Goat Cheese. I just love the smell of goat cheese and onions permeating our home…..no, seriously, my stomach rumbles (in a good way) every time.
Needless to say, as you see in the pics, these onions sprouted right back within a few days and are ready to use. You could even say we’re going green by growing and saving green. But you don't have to. I’m not sure if we can keep doing this since this is the first week to try, but I’ll try again and keep you updated!
I’ve been seeing a lot of kale chip posts lately, and since I promised Kelley I’d make some…….I made some. Man are these things addicting! All I did was sprinkle sea salt and pepper over the leaves and roasted until crisp; delish! Kelley gave the “constant eating until they were almost gone” approval and I was happy to provide. As the saying goes, “Happy wife, happy life.”
On to my Wednesday eats…..
Breakfast – leftover black beans with brown rice and green beans; microwave scrambled eggs and a generous helping of dill; after that I had the usual French press coffee with nutmeg.
Snack – hardly noteworthy; just a mug o’green and red tea with stevia
Lunch – green split pea and mixed veggie puree (I love immersion blending!); dehydrated Brussels; celery sticks; waaaayyy too many Arrowhead Mills Corn Puffs
After Lunch – just a brew of green tea mixed with a decaf chai tea bag with stevia; went for a short run and heavy punching bag session after work
Dinner – long time since lunch, very hungry; started with a big salad topped with mixed veggies, kale chips, and salsa for salad dressing; no purees this week (I mentioned I wouldn’t on Monday), but I did have a nice mix of baked NuNaturals goodies from this post and plain Chobani Greek yogurt; I finished the Peanut Butter Dip N’Dots I made too.
I loved the microwave eggs; they’re so easy and so good! Just beat eggs in microwave bowl and add spices as desired (like CAYENNE!) and microwave for 50 seconds, stir, then another 40 – 50 seconds and you’re good. If they still look runny, just wait since they will keep cooking a little.
Have you ever made microwave scrambled eggs?
