In my part of the world, most people don’t really celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Some haven’t even heard of it, like my husband. But I had my own little party last Saturday, feasting on lots of naturally green foods.
I’m feeling a little under the weather today, so let’s get straight to the food, ok?
I made an omelette for breakfast, added frozen herbs to the batter, and topped it all with fresh garden cress.
On Friday I made a big pot of ratatouille, so I could have leftovers for lunch the next day. Millet on the side, parmesan on top.
This was meant to be a green smoothie, but I accidentally added too many frozen berries. I swear there’s also some spinach in there! Anyway, it was delicious.
Dinner was some home-made potato fries, tahini covered carrot fries, and a side salad with tomatoes, raw mushrooms, arugula, and balsamic dressing. Of course, I added lots of ketchup after taking that photo.
Lately, I’ve been drinking at least one cup of green tea almost every day. Those two flavors are my favorites at the moment, jasmine and rose on the left, lemongrass and orange mint (?) on the right. So good!
