What's IN MY KITCHEN this month? 
A friend came to visit and brought me a lovely white serving dish. I also covered some of the food I made .

It was our 52nd anniversary a few days ago and my husband brought me some beautiful pink blush roses. ( pic taken after 5 days).

What I've been eating 

avocado toast with greens on top, vegan, gluten-free

I made  avocado toast by mashing ripe avocado with lime juice, salt and pepper and eating it on gluten-free bread/toast. I topped it with a cherry tomato and some greens. It was delicious for breakfast. 

gluten-free kasha and noodles, vegan

My sister-in- law made some kasha with gluten-free bowtie noodles. It was delicious. I'll publish her recipe soon. 

I like this black bean dip that I get at Whole Foods. It's got zero fat grams and no oil added. I sometimes make GF toast and spread this black bean dip on it . It's quick easy and a healthy choice. 

I also made a vegetable noodle soup.  I used spiraled zucchini noodles. It was delicious. Recipe link for Noodle Soup here .

I enjoyed this simple sliced cucumber and radicchio salad with a tofu mayo dressing. Delicious. I used my easy( link) vegan mayo recipe.

The rose bud tea that I purchased last May in Israel is fragrant and wonderful. I'm just getting around to using it.

I also love mint tea, hot or iced!! 85 degrees here in Florida!

  10. What a sweet post. It was so nice to see what's up in your kitchen. The tea sounds really good, and that bowtie meal looks delicious. I'd love to try that black bean dip. There is a Whole Foods in my hometown. Your post was delightful. My favorite posts are of "this and that."


  11. Oh, I also wanted to say Happy Anniversary....and those blush roses are beautiful.

    I watched The Audrey Hepburn Story on tubi, but I don't know if it's on Netflix as well. : )

    All the best Jan

  17. Congrats on your anniversary!!

    Your smashed avo on toast looks delicious

  18. I love avocado toast for breakfast, sometimes with a poached or boiled egg on top. In fact I even like it for dinner. It's already 85 degrees! Ouch. I will be visiting St. Pete and New Port Richey next month for a couple of weeks. It's a reunion with some college and high school friends. I hope it is not too steamy. After living on the Northern California coast for many years my tolerance for extremely hot or cold weather has flown out the window.

  19. Such a happy post, especially the daffodils! They're my favorite flower. By the way, I really enjoyed the comment you left about your childhood Easter bonnets. So sweet and nostalgic! 💛👒

  20. The teas and soup sound wonderful and congrats on your anniversary!
