Well this week, like last week, has been a light meal sort of affair -- after all the gourmet food of last weekend. I bought lots of yogurt and some fruit for yogurt shakes:
Simple Yogurt Shakes
(for 2 people)
3 individual plain yogurts (or a little more than 1 cup)
1 cup raspberries (strawberries are good too)
1 frozen banana (cutting in half or quarters before freezing makes it easier for the blender)
a splash of fruit juice (your favorite or a combo) to taste
Blend it all together and drink it! Also a yummy light dessert at the end of a meal.
I've been alternating this yumminess with tomato salad after finding delicious funky-looking tomatoes called Coeur de Boeuf in French (don't know in English!):
With fresh tomatoes (especially fresh out of one’s garden, which are the best of course), I find it doesn’t take a lot of futzing to make them absolutely delicious. I keep it simple and use this recipe from my dad:
1. Cut tomatoes into round slices and arrange on a plate.
2. Drizzle some extra virgin olive oil on top.
3. Salt, pepper and sprinkle with dill (sometimes I use a little thyme as well).
With meals like this, I’ve been happily cleansing and letting my stomachs rest – while certainly not feeling deprived of good food! This tomato salad also makes a delicious side dish for all kinds of meals, especially in the summer (I know I’m a bit early – but I can’t help anticipating).
