Garlic Scapes are the flower bud of the garlic plant. If you pick them when they are very young and tender they are a lovely side dish. Just saute them quickly with a touch of coconut oil with some real salt and fresh pepper. The huge, tall woody scapes are best used in a flower arrangement.
Here in the Pacific Northwest, Mother Nature is offering up a sunny, glorious day. Perfect day for grilling and eating on the patio.
Last night while Mr. Right was juicing, I asked for about a 1/2 cup of fresh pineapple juice. Oh, be still my heart, the aroma is so sweet/tangy it makes my mouth water.
He juiced the pineapple spear right into a pint jar. I added a fresh minced clove of garlic, fresh grated ginger, tamari, a teaspoon of olive oil and beautiful, deep, rich Raw Honey from Beefuddled Farms. https://www.facebook.com/beefuddledFarms/?fref=ps_result
I put the lid on the marinade and left it to chill in the refrigerator & meld (golly, I love that word) over night. Marinades are easy to make and be creative with . Please give it a try. Homemade is jam-packed full of flavor and you get to skip all the ugly chemicals. You need some acid and some sweet. The other herb/spice flavor combinations, well the sky is the limit.
This morning I chopped peppers, mushrooms and a pungent red onion. I tossed in fresh picked thyme and added real salt and fresh ground pepper. That will sit all day long.
Will grill tonight and add some almond Brown Rice as a side. Grilled Pineapple for dessert anyone?
Don’t ya just love when dinner is all figured out early in the day?
By the way, I love to send a picture of dinner or dessert to Mr. Right. Via email, text or Facebook. He will be sure and notice. Maybe it will gently encourage him to hurry home & drive safely? My goal in showing him, is to let him know that some wonderful food is waiting for him. He is loved and adored and I want him to be reminded of that.
What’s for dinner in your neck of the woods?
Gentle suggestion: Send a picture of something special you are preparing or baking to your better half. Just think how excited they will be to anticipate a wonderful meal and your good company?
Grace is not a little prayer you say before receiving a meal, it’s a way to live.
