Day 5 – Sunday, a day of rest

The Crow's Nest

Sunday is a special day at our house. It’s the one day of the week when we always get together for dinner. And we always eat together at The Crow’s Nest, a small British pub just down the street from our home.

What we love about Sunday dinner is that it’s the one time of the week when we actually talk with each other. We joke around, and we know everyone at the pub, in fact over the years they’ve become a part of our family. They also know that we use this special time as our ‘together’ time and let us talk.

I think it’s important to have traditions like this. We can walk here, so no gasoline is wasted. And what the kids like best is that once the dinner is finished, and the conversation is completed, they can just walk home and get on with their evening, while Mark and I often stay for a drink alone together.

I did make a delicious lunch today, and it only took seconds to put together when I took a break from working in the garden.

Wraps filled with Guacomole, spinach, sprouts and salsa (serves 2 or 1 very hungry gardener)

1 avocado, peeled, pitted and mashed

2 Tbsp salsa (today I used Jack’s Salsa, but in the summer I usually have fresh salsa sitting around for snacking on)

2 ancient grain tortilla shells

handful spinach

handful sprouts

sprinkle of dulse

Mash the avocado with 1 Tbsp of salsa. Spread on the 2 tortilla wraps. In the centre of each, add a handful of spinach, sprouts (today I had broccoli sprouts on hand), and sprinkle with dulse. Then add another 1/2 Tbsp of salsa on the top of each.

Fold them up and enjoy. If your salsa is very wet (like mine was), this is a very messy, but delicious snack.

I finished off with an orange,  one litre of water (with chlorophyll in it), and went back out into the garden.

I might have eaten 2 or 3 little chocolate Easter eggs (the mini kind) that were sitting on the counter!
