hanging onto summer...

summer is officially here until september 22nd and i plan to savor every last minute. we're eating plenty of watermelon, zucchini and cucumber (one from our garden that didn't taste like dramamine!) and i'm really in the mood for a nectarine right now.

 today my kitchen was sunny and raw after some inspiration from Carmella's amazing ebooks that i finally ordered today :


 john and i created this delicious summer dish of spiralized zucchini tossed with sliced button mushrooms, raw cashews, diced avocado, cilantro, olive oil, and a few seasonings.

as Carmella would say, it was to live for!


this eggplant made me so happy all season long, from the first bloom to its last fruit. i plan to grow at least four eggplant next season. i'm hoping the baby eggplant are able to mature before the cold weather comes!


  1. I might ask u for gardening tips soon : -] I always admire those who grow their own food! and I agree: Carmella creations are AMAZING!! yours looks amazing too.


  2. I'm still so jealous of your garden!! I'm also jealous of your spiraler! My B-day is on Saturday. I asked for one! We shall see if I get it!! :D

  3. I found the link to your blog from gardenweb where I just became a member and I love the site. I was attracted to your blog because it is "animal friendly". Well I am a vegan and I am starting my first garden next year. Are you raw from this post it seems you are interested in it, I have been trying a high raw diet and been able to eat about 70% without giving much effort. Well I just started a blog and hopefully will be active on it and I'll have my garden on it and of course my food creations it is
