Healthy Eats

This picture of Kitten sums up Saturday at this house.  It was DH's 60th birthday, so I lazed about most of the day keeping him company.  We laughed together about the fact we are getting older and all we want on birthdays is premium ice cream and extra sleep. 
I spent some time in the kitchen making healthy food.  I have a vegetarian stuffed pepper recipe I love to make.  After the Shop Hop and work week eating at fast food joints, I was ready to make something green, so along with the peppers I made (from top) cabbage and leek soup, sautéed beet greens and Swiss chard,  and cucumbers with watercress salad.  My version of yummo! 
I want to say thank you to my Auntie from Primitive Woolens, Becky from The Quilting Book Lady, Debbie from Woolen Sails, Renee from Liberty Star, Melisa from Sweet Home and Kim from Magnolia Bay Quilts for congratulating me on our wedding anniversary. I have truly enjoyed getting to know you all through your blog posts, and it touched me that you sent kind regards my way on that important day.

So now it is off to Little Quilts in the northwestern Atlanta hinterland.  Sheesh, I am just hoping for an uneventful drive there and back.  This time I have directions from their website and NO mapquest, so perhaps I'll do better than last time.

That looks good and healty. I marinate my cucumbers in lemon and oil, with garlic and dill weed. I can't have vinegar, so I use lemon instead.

Hope you have fun at little quilts.

Your dinner looks great!! My new fav is sauteed kale with shallots; I think I could eat it everyday. Hope you had fun at Little Quilts. I really need to get there sometime--it's been awhile. That store is dangerous for my wallet LOL!
