Our soup pot was full again this past weekend with a spicy vegetable, black bean and tomato soup. It was eaten for several meals, and just kept tasting yummier each time!
We ate potato salad with baked beans [or "trumping tackle", as all three boys now call them!] and a purple cabbage salad. Also on the table were delicious enchiladas [recipe here, at the bottom of the page] filled with refried brown beans and cheese, eaten with spicy salsa verde and crunchy carrot sticks. Last but not least was our beloved vegetable chilli and rice.
Finally, I am so excited because this week, after a long wait for a healthy domestic budgeting economy [I mean enough money], we invested in a juicer! It's a cold press one, and we've called him Oscar. Mostly because that was, er, already his name. He's an Oscar VitalMax 900 single gear masticating juicer. Can you tell I did my research?!
So our first juice this week was a blend of carrots, blood oranges, apples, and fresh ginger. It had a beautiful pink-orange colour, and a tangy but smooth flavour, with a warming aftertaste from the ginger. Coo and Mr J preferred it slightly watered down, but The Boys drank it happily as it was. So did I. This morning, in honour of St Patrick's Day, we enjoyed a rich, dark green juice of apples, spinach, lemons, and cucumber. I'm wishing I could share photos of these beautifully coloured juices, but my camera is under the weather!
What was on your table this week?
