It matched perfectly with this crisp temperature!


kiwi  On the way home from school, I stopped at Joe’s to get some fruit.  I decided to be renegade style and bite into this kiwi hardcore.  I did not enjoy.  Fuzz in my mouth = no bueno.  I will stick to cutting and spooning my kiwis.  Thanks.

P1020623Second was a toasted piece of Ezekiel with TJ’s superfruit  spread.  This stuff is ah-maz-ing!



I breaded and lightly fried some organic chicken cutlets and topped with bruschetta.  I as craving this dish since the weekend when it came up in conversation.  It did not disappoint!  I served it with some whole wheat rotini and tomato sauce and organic baby arugula, shaved parmesan, balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
