amazingly graceful apple and brie sandwich

IMG_0983 IMG_0985

 

this is one of my all time favorites!!!

I started enjoying this when I worked at the cafe koko In greenfield some years ago. I don’t know who invented this recipe but I think it was divinely created none the less.

In their recipe they used fresh french bread from the green fields coop which was uniquely amazing but I have a weight issue… I eat and gain weight, I have a gluten intolerance which isn’t so bad if I use this amazing

(ezekial whole grain, french bread, white bread, grinder rolls or whatever you can find sometimes I just skip the bread all together) bread

I buttered my pan ( butter= bliss)  put the stove on medium

place the bread down

sliced brie cheese

and slice some apples and apply

the brie starts to melt keep careful track that you don’t burn the bread like I did.

The brie is super high in protein but it is a (mold) cheese and not good for a yeast free diet.

blessed be folks and have a happy thanks giving

IMG_1387 IMG_1386

This has been an amazing year for kale. I was able to grow some in my in my garden and have been blessed with many gifts of others kale which I would gladly accept

because this is full of all the good stuff our bodies need Check below for all the goodness here are the recipe’s for supply and demand

some of it I just washed and cut off the stem and bagged up headed off for the freezer

the first two pics…

I washed my handful of  kale de- stemmed it

chopped and rubbed 1/8 of olive oil into it

the first handful I used my Martha’s vineyard sea salt that I boiled down( I love it , it’s mine, I made it!!!)

put it on my food dehydrator and started it up

the next handful of leaves I prepped the same way rubbed oil

squirted some (soy sauce) brags amino acids ( this is to taste because it does have sodium you have to do what you can)

then I put the secret ingredient on it which is the spike

then put it all in the dehydrator

mine only took a few hours and then stuck them in canning jars

the brags and spike didn’t even make it into the canning jars because it is so yummy

silent preoccupation/38/soul love saga

 

P1030331

silences are the polar opposites of the loudest scream

by definition

but can feel the same

 

minuets pass like hours

I thrive in the

inaccuracy of feelings

moving from place to place

trying to settle

my body rests in aches and in the moments of salvation

when everyone is satisfied

and preoccupied

and my time is mine not a disability

to disrupt me

fire water think~ healthy winter brew

apple cider vinegar I usually use brags but found a gallon container  at Apex in shelburne for seven dollars !!! just be sure that it has the mother mushroom in it so it is alive

hangover special

IMG_1366

this is my hangover cure not that I spend a lot of time being hung over but it does happen sometimes so here it is….

in one pan I like iron because it gives you iron( never aluminum or non stick because it leaches bad stuff)

I take a stick of butter and rub it all over the pan so nothing sticks

than I plop a hash brown down

a slice of tomato

and an egg cooked sunny side up and still goey

than as it heats up and becomes ready

I layer it on my plate…

hash brown , slice of cheese, pesto, tom, egg

and oh my goodness I think I ate this one meal a day for a week!!!
