A Noisy Rabbit Dinner

We made an almost full The Noisy Rabbit (tnr) dinner tonight. I wanted to use the apricots so I started throwing stuff in a iron pan to stick in the oven. What came out was really good – the kiddos asked for a third helping. There are no measurements, sorry, but here is what I threw in:

Chicken breasts
A few springs of rosemary from my neighbors’ garden
Apricot halves (tnr)
blueberries (tnr)
Orange juice (from last weeks oranges – tnr)

Coconut oil
sea salt

* cooked it in the oven then finished the chicken on the grill.

Fruit for a side:
strawberries (tnr)
blueberries (tnr)
apricots (tnr)
cucumbers (tnr)
roasted coconut (tnr)
cherries (tnr)
OJ (tnr)
1/2 tps of sugar
little bit of coconut oil
chia seeds
flax seeds

Veggie for side(s):
salad = lettuce (tnr) + spinach (tnr) shredded cheese
roasted broc and yel squash (both tnr)

= health meal and happy folks. 🙂

How to Keep Lettuce from Wilting Quickly

Last week at the Nunnery Branch a lady asked me how I keep my lettuce from wilting so fast, and I didn’t have a good answer at the time, but I asked a friend and now have a great solution that worked so well for me this week. (Hope she’s reading!)

When you get your lettuce home, tear each leaf off the stem, rinse it and let it soak for a minute in a bowl of water. Take it out of the bowl, shake it off a bit, and wrap it in a paper towel before putting it in an open bag to store it in the fridge.

I did this on Thursday, and my lettuce is still lookin’ great!
