What a beautiful day yesterday was. A day spent all by myself and lots of meditation time in the sun. It was so nice to have just quiet around me and feel reconnected to the earth.
I spent some time also working in the garden and then on the internet looking for some new recipes. I found one that I decided to give a try. I had purchased some pears and was looking for ways to use them up. Came across a recipe called "Creamy Pear Pie". It sounds great, but I wanted to make sure that I cut some calories in it, so of course adjusted it to reflect that. Instead of using a pie crust, I left that out all together and just made it in a deep dish. Instead of sugar, I substituted agave and less that what was called for with the sugar. I must say, it turned out great! A dessert I will definitely make again.
I also used up the last of my eggplant and made eggplant parmasean, and as usual, made my own substitutions. I am so bad when it comes to recipes. I find something that looks great and sounds great and then I modify it using what I have on hand. I'm not sure if I've ever followed a recipe completely *grin*
A wonderful day yesterday just recharging and preparing for the up coming work week.
Short work week.
My garden and all the ideas for harvesting that run through my mind.
It's a new day and I'm ready to face it.
Have a wonderful day,
