Two Sallies for Tuesday

August 9, 2011

in salads

Lovely Day


Lovely brunch!


I wasn’t hungry when I woke up, so I put together a sally that could sit for a while, til I was good n ready for it. First, I made some basil paste, which is essentially pesto without the cheese/nuts


Big handful of fresh basil with 4 TB Malibu Olive Oil – pureed in the mini prep processor


Froze most of the paste, but reserved 1 TB for a dressing, along with the zest/juice of a huge lemon + salt and pepper


Dinosaur Kale, toss and chopped


Massaged that basil lemon dressing in there – my hands got drrrrty


Added two tomatoes; sat covered in the fridge


Portioned out a bowl around noon, topped with crumbled Cranberry Brown Rice Pops


A drizzle of honey for extra sweetness


Afternoon snack – Scarlet Sally!


Red grapes, red plum, red strawberries


The plum was so ripe it slipped right outa its skin!


Recently found this behind-the-scenes iPhone video someone took of us rehearsing dinner scenes for “Yes We’re Open.” Ahhh, memories…

…we are actually just $400 away from our $10,000 goal on Kickstarter – big big BIG thanks everyone who’s donated so far!!!

Haha, that video is too funny! I always think the best part about the movies are the behind the scenes.
