The Best Bread Ever

June 16, 2010

First order of business--I need a food stylist. And a photographer. And my very own ice cream truck.

Moving on...

Today was a great day in my little CSA world. There were salads, there was a green smoothie, and friends, there was this:

It's called an Oh So Easy Romaine Wrap, and I learned about it from my friendly local raw foodist. (read about her here and here)

I'm not sure where they got the name from, but it's so easy to make. You take a couple leaves of Romaine, you stack 'em up, schmear the pile with two or forty tablespoons of nut butter, and then drizzle some agave nectar or honey on top.

Then you roll it up, think to yourself, "Huh, this might be pornographic for vegans," and you enjoy.

Now I know it seems like a strange combination, but if you keep your eye on the prize and think about Thai food, it's really pretty good. I followed up my lettuce wrap with two Klondike bars--strong, but not overpowering.

And now, without further hesitation, I present to you my pride and joy:

I know you think I'm a liar, but I really did make it all by myself. It's spinach feta bread, and I love it so much that if I lived in Nevada, I'd marry it. If I manage to gain three-hundred pounds as a member of a CSA, this spinach feta bread will be held 97% responsible.

Dinner wasn't so shabby either. A big ass salad and quinoa mixed with turkey kielbasa and CSA broccoli.

The second basket comes tomorrow...stay tuned for some mystery vegetables!


  1. I think I might need the recipe for that bread. Mind posting it?

  2. You absolutely DO need the recipe for the bread!!!! I'll post it under the recipe tab later this afternoon.

  3. I need the recipe for that bread also! I'm really digging this new blog. I don't CSA but you're inspiring me to hit up my farmers market this weekend and get to salad eating.

  4. I'm still on the fence about quinoa. It's harder to find, usually more expensive and doesn't seem to be that much better than brown rice. Or am I doing it all wrong?
