Veggie Garden Progress + {Pink Kale Juice}

I am so excited that dear hubby helped me plan, dig, and build my first real veggie garden this weekend.  It's still too cold to plant (hence the indoor tabletop garden to start), but getting the infrastructure and soil ready for planting is most of the hard work!   I scoured the aisles of the local Lowe's to determine what sort of material I wanted to use for the sides / walls of my raised v ...

Happy St. Patty's + Citrus Kale Salad

Top 'o the mornin' to ya.  We had a wonderful St Patty's day spending hours and hours outside together - starting with a bit of yardwork (cutting down the Karl Forester grasses for the year so the new growth can start coming up).  We had some water table fun, then went for a long walk around the lake near our house, and played at the playground for-ever... for-ev-er... (name that movie, and I'll be super impressed!!  Think early 90s).  When we got home for lunch I came up with a DELICIOUS kale salad!

Recipe: Mean Green Juice

There's something about that green.  It's electric, radioactive almost.  It just LOOKS healthy, right?  The good news is, it actually tastes amazing!  And I'm not just saying that.  So here it is, the only Kale success I know of so far: the Mean Green Juice! This is one of the primary juices featured in the Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead movie... and one I could drink almost every day!

What is it for?

First the confession: I sometimes often shop at Walmart.  There I said it.  Judge me as you like, but I have my reasons:  a) It's the closest by distance (1/3 the distance to a regular grocery store) and b) I don't feel the need to dress up or look my best.  Ha!  Because, hey... ...
