Nature, naturally…

I spotted a rare sole in the wild. It appears I was not alone in the spotting, the turtle was on top of it too. It was a tough shot to get, also. If you know soles, you know how sensitive and jitterish they can be. IMG_2290

I thought I spotted another one but it turned out to be just two very hungry mallard ducks…

This turtle was on the hunt also.

Keep your eyes peeled for the elusive sole…

The Gift

IMG_0886

I have wanted a bass guitar for a very long time. I went to the music store to take a look at a used one. While I was there, I spotted the Ukeleles. The Ukulele is basically a small bass guitar, that granted has a different sound, but you can make it what you want.

I am learning chords and methods of strumming.

It was a gift I gave myself!

Strawberries

Unknown-1 Strawberries, yum, I love them. Fruit goes bad so quickly though. So, for dinner, strawberries, blueberries, yogurt and a little granola. So absolutely great!

For breakfast, peanut butter and strawberries on crackers, this one you must try. This is super delicious!

What shall I have for lunch? any suggestions?

Lettuce Wraps

Heat up some grape seed oil, and chop up half an onion. I added a part of a green bell pepper  I had in the fridge too and three brussel sprouts chopped up. (at this point add whatever you want, celery, carrots, zucchini etc..)

I sprinkled some cumin in, it smells so great. Now, I added some mushrooms..

Add ground turkey or ground beef or just whatever protein you like or not…

Next is the easiest but most important part, this is what makes all great stir fries, one tablespoon of cornstarch with 1/4 cup soy sauce and about 2/3 cup of warm water. Stir into meat and veggie mixture.IMG_0868

While that is marrying chop a scallion and get your lettuce ready. I used Boston, but you can use any kind of lettuce you have.
