It has been a simple week so far. The house is coming together well, I suppose. Lucky for me, I am not in need of a place to live. I saw Star Trek this week. It was mediocre. Some major irks but overall entertaining.
I also made some nice food this past week. First off I want to show support for Tara - The Snowy Vegan. I made a spinach smoothie. It was yummy. It does have honey in it.
My thoughts on honey: I think big business honey is a major issue with regards to the bee industry. Millions of bees are killed for the grocery store honey. However, since extracting honey does not actually damage the bees, local honey is a different issue for me. If I am confident that the bees are not killed after each season and are allowed be wild, I do not see a huge issue with eating honey. On that note, when Jamie and I were in Florida, we found a little honey stand on the side of the road, with about 10 small jugs for sale. We picked one up. Disagree if you would like but I think that in a more primitive world, humans are scavengers and are likely to occasionally eat things like honey. Your thoughts? (now watch my subscribers drop off like bees in the corporate machine!)I also made a quinoa pilaf with some shredded cabbage and carrots. It was light and refreshing. I generally cook heavy foods and this was such a treat. It always surprises me how well I feel after eating something as health as this dish.
We also made some Mac & Cheese.
This is what $0.99 worth of organic bananas looks like at my local farmers market.
