My good pal, Leigh, came to visit me last night! Wahooo!
As soon as we say “hi” the conversation does not end….into the night we chatted away over good food and wine.
First, though, I dragged her to track practice so she could help our Solon high jumper since Leigh jumped at ISU! -Thanks Leigh!
We share the same passion for wholesome food (she’s a dietitian too…what do you expect), so for dinner we dished up fresh colorful spinach salads with all the fixins.
Coconut Chicken Spinach Salad
leftover chicken from my coconut chicken dish: http://sarabconsulting.blogspot.com/search/label/Coconut
homegrown spinach from Leigh’s aunt and uncle’s garden in Grinnell
fresh blueberries and organic strawberries
sauteed mushrooms in 0live oil
locally grown tomatoes
w/ homemade rhubarb strawberry sauce
Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce is so simple to make. Just bring to a boil sliced rhubarb and strawberries. Add sugar to taste and simmer away till it reaches the consistency you desire.
she actually said she liked the “crunch” and instantly wanted to run 19miles but instead had to jump in her car and drive to Cleveland….dangit….next time Leigh!
