Greens From The Garden

Our first harvest of the season, some spinach and swiss chard.

Such an easy and healthy lunch wouldn't you say?

Oops, where did that come from?

Right in the middle of trying to be healthy.

(There's always room for a brownie.)

More green.

Simon had his own little salad too, just no brownie.
He is such a good role model.

As Don says - dessert is the most important meal of the day.

Love your garden harvest - we have nothing yet - just more rain!

Hee hee! I love this post. Such a nutritious lunch and then a brownie snuck in there. But seriously, those salads look delicious. I wish I could pop over there to share one with you. (of course, I wouldn't say know to a wee brownie either!) And Simon is beautiful! What kind of bird is he?

It's all about balance, right???
Your food pictures always look very appealing.....not easy to pull off!
Simon IS a great role model. And handsome, to boot! Thanks for your sweet comments about my daughter's big trip this coming week. We leave Saturday and I'm up to my eyeballs in preparations. Hope your Maine summer is off to a wonderful start. If those greens are any indication, the weather must be great! xx Suzanne

Hi Lili! The main course looks really healthy.... we are trying very hard to give up the sweets. Now I've seen that delicious brownie, I'm not so sure! Thanks for the temptation and have a great weekend! Susan :)

That Simon - he is such a cutie pie! Love this funny little story! Thought you were on a healthy roll there for a while - but a girl has to have a brownie every day -oops - I mean every now and then!

You are too nice to me Lili - such sweet comments - you make me cry!
