First pit stop

We are headed to vidor Texas. It is my granny's 89th bday and my mother and husband decided to road trip it there over night to surprise her. We are only 20 minutes away but this is a photo of our first gas station. The sign made us laugh.

Armenian Cucumbers

Last year my friend Karen shared her Armenian cucumbers with me. They were a hit with everyone i shared them with. So this year she gave me a couple starts for my garden. I am so excited to see a few finally growing. 

Vegetable Focused Pizza

Trying to be even more vegetable focused we ate minimally cheesed pizza this week. Bret liked it so much he said we can go cheese free in the future. As long as it has olives and mushrooms he said.

Cucumber Agua Fresca

Last month we fell in love with watermelon lemonade. This month we drink cucumbers. I used 2 super long English cucumbers that had gone a bit limp. I blended them with 2 cups of water, 1/8 cup of lime juice, 1 Tbs agave syrup and a handful of mint leaves. Way good! Maybe could use more mint. Drinking vegetables is easier than eating them. Plus, Bret is not normally a fan of cukes and he liked this.
