eating healthy & not so much...

tonight i felt like putting some effort into our meal, a feeling i haven't experienced much this summer. i went to the grocery store and picked up the ingredients for a light lebanese meal: tabouli, hummus, pita, and olives.

i made the tabouli and hummus from scratch, using freshly picked parsley and mint from our garden for our salad. the pita is store bought and the olives were a nice treat from olive bar at loblaws.

tonight's fairly healthy meal might help make up for our sinful dinner last thursday when paul & i indulged in our tradition of a summer meal at lick's. mmmmm...nature burger (a veggieburger that tastes a lot like meat) with lots of "guk" sauce and french fries. it was sooooo yummy! and very fried.

looking forward to getting fresh corn on the cob and peaches at the farmers' market tomorrow!

We all deserve a nice treat like that sometimes, esp. when the weather allows us to eat outside on picnic benches!

Licks, mmm. A friend dragged me reluctantly to the CNE on Saturday, and I think for me the highlight of the day was having Licks Nature Burger there for lunch!
