Coffee, blackcurrant vinarterta, and a little piece of halva.  For those mornings when I just want coffee and something sweet.

Breakfast of eggs and buttered toast with marmalade.  A nice simple breakfast for mornings that need simplifying.

Aug 2: Nasturtiums.

I love nasturtiums and plant them near my tomatoes to attract pollinators. Mom thought this plant was growing too big and tried to transplant it.  Nasturtiums don’t like being transplanted at all.

Naan and homemade tzatziki.
I’m “sorry”, I’m going to have a lot of tzatziki posts for the next while…

One of the side effects of making a lot of tzatziki: I also get to make some lemon salt with the extra zest!

I’ll be out of town this week for work, but I’ve queued up some posts which should last until I return at two posts per day.  I realise I’m still behind, posting stuff from July when it’s already mid-Aug, but I hope you’ll forgive me.

this will always be my favorite interaction from okcupid

This makes sense if one hasn’t indicated one is “looking for new friends” (which is an available option on OkCupid).

I’m really loving homemade tzatziki.  How did I never make this before? 
At first, I was skeptical about adding olive oil.  I mean, yogurt is already a lot of fat, why would I add more fat?  But the olive oil gets, like, suspended in the water and fat of the yogurt or something, so maybe it all hits the tongue in different ways, so you can taste EVERYTHING.
It’s so good on paratha.

July 23: Carrot bed.

The carrot leaves are huge! And we have some volunteer chamomile guarding it all…  

It’s time to thin out the bed. Thankfully, my brother drinks/eats green smoothies, so these babies wont go to waste.  (And I can snack on the larger ones!)

July 23: Lemon Drop peppers.
If you look very very closely near the top and centre of the larger plant, you can see just the very very beginnings of some fruits!  I’m so excited!!
