juicing exploits

I received this incredible juicer for my birthday (which was exactly what I wanted) and I thought I'd share some photos of a few of my concoctions:

a.   Carrot Apple Orange
b.   Kale Pear Lime Ginger
c.   Pear Apple Orange Carrot Kale
d.   Beet Pear

and, yes, those are the actual colors of the juice. plus an extra special photo (that didn't come out so well) that shows the juicer itself gobbling up some kale. awesomeness.

beach fourth

galveston is not the prettiest of beaches ... but it is all we have. and it can have it's moments, especially when you can capture them. hope you had a happy and sun-filled fourth!

so back to the country again this weekend ... what a blast. a little work, a little play, dance hall perusing and of course, some livestock ... what's not to like?

it's my birthday...

and I feel like I'm at the age where I *almost* have to act like I'm a grown up....but not for another year!

ice cream ... !!

so my second birthday gift ... an ice cream maker attachment for my kitchen aid mixer! and boy is it awesome. I usually hate mint chocolate chip ice cream but for the inaugural usage of my gift, I used this fresh mint chip ice cream recipe (courtesy of david lebovitz, the ice cream master) and it is AMAZING. it takes a bit of prep, but try it, you'll love it.
