Well it’s Sunday once again. Melissa helped me make breakfast this morning. It was kind of a clean out the leftover stuff breakfast. We started with some brown rice that we added cheese and soy sauce to. Topped that with a poached egg. Used up the last of the blueberries and strawberries. Split one leftover pancake 3 ways. and sliced up a pork chop. You didn’t know we had pancakes because Melissa made them one morning that she rose late and we were already done in the kitchen. She always makes interesting pancakes, never just plain. These were made with berries and chocolate chips. She then tops it with lemon juice and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Apparently that’s how they do it in Australia.

After church we did a little shopping at Safeway. I was looking for red skinned Spanish peanuts. There are very few places where you can find this specific type of peanut. Everyone carries cocktail peanuts, honey roasted peanuts, dry roasted peanuts, etc. I was in luck – they actually had some in stock so I bought 2 cans. After doing a little shopping, we headed up the hill. Sunday is the day that we pick up our wheat grass for the week so it is the only day way drive up Omaopio. Once we got home, we decided that we wanted salmon for lunch, but it was frozen so we had to stick it in a pan of water to do a quick thaw. Here’s a tip for you. When you would like to thaw out meat and you don’t want to wait all day, put it in a pan of cold water. It is very important that the water is cold as you do not want to start cooking the meat before it is thawed. This will cut your thawing time in half. Along with the salmon we wanted to have some asparagus but we were completely out so we ended up having zucchini boats. The zucchini that we had was very skinny so I didn’t even boil the zucchini before broiling it.

For dinner it was time for some curry leak soup aka healing soup. I call this my healing soup because of the turmeric, garlic and gingerĀ  that goes into it. Tonight I made it with some Japanese pumpkin. The great thing about this is how thick and rich it makes the soup to squash the squash into the squash soup. I also baked the last of the cookie dough. I think I should make a new batch soon.
