She wanted to check out the Organic Baby Puree Cafe that I wrote about HERE. So we did.
Some of you know that my BFF is a personal trainer. She was running late because she was
DoodleBug couldn't decide between two items, so I ordered the cripsy veggie wrap and she ordered the most-amazing-salad-EVER and we shared---
Birdie went with the Spinach Pie- and two sides---EXCELLENT choice!
I forgot to take pictures of BFF's food because we were so engrossed in Birdie's tales of athletic training and soccer camp. Wow. How does a parent not know that their kid went off to camp WITHOUT his back brace? Really? Sheesh.
Anyway, it was just as good, maybe even better, than it was the first time we went. And the owners and staff? OVER THE TOP in the kindness/friendliness/welcoming area. Gosh, I just LOVE this restaurant!
And now for the Gerson Gardener's Pie recipe. I made this last week and it will be a repeat dish in our house!
Gerson Gardener’s Pie
1 lb potatoes
12 oz celery root (or sweet potato or onion)
Peel veggies and cube. Boil til done and mash.
1 small onion
2 cloves garlic, crushed
8 oz carrots, sliced or diced
8 oz zucchini, sliced
8 oz leeks, sliced
2 tomatoes, chopped
2 oz bread crumbs
Put prepared veggies in saucepan in the order listed. Cook gently. When done, stir in bread crumbs and pour mixture into pie plate. Top with mashed potatoes. Bake for 45-60 minutes at 350 degrees.
Of course you can change the filling to your favorite veggies if you want!
This was SO YUMMY!
Yesterday was the husband's birthday- I made him a Banana Cake with Chocolate Banana Icing. And then there was the Shrimp and Grits. Oops. Healthy smealthy. It was a birthday. I did use organic ingredients...and, with the cake, I used coconut sugar instead of granulated. The confectioner's sugar---well, it WAS organic.
I don't have the shrimp and grits recipe because, well...it's my own and I don't have it written down. I have a recipe that I use as a base but I do my own thing to the point that the base recipe is virtually unrecognizable.
But, you can get the cake recipe from Donna at Just One Donna right HERE!
