Day 128, Sunday was an eat out day. For Mother’s Day, we took my mom to Green Pastures, to which she will continue to refer to as Green Acres. I attempted to eat carb free, to mitigate the damage to come by my paella dinner at Vino Vino. I did a favor for a friend, or attempted to, and in return, paella night.
Day 129, was an eat in day. Garden strawberries for breakfast, for lunch I made a salad with Springfield Farms lettuce, my garden onions, my first garden tomatoes, Kocurek English bacon, a boiled Vital Farms egg (fresh eggs are nearly impossible to peel!). At noon, I stuck some pork ribs in the smoker. The pork was from the vendor at Truck Farm Farmer’s Market, 6J Ranch. Super nice folks. I didn’t sit down to a proper dinner, I just started grazing, one rib at a time until I was full. So, just ribs.
I realized something, while eating my big salad for lunch. I bought the last of Springfield’s lettuce, and my lettuce has been long gone for weeks. It’s too hot for lettuce, so I might be done with salads at home for months. Yikes, that isn’t a good thing. I hope Bella Verdi Farms will continue to grow hydroponic lettuce through the summer, and that may be my saving grace.
