Fishing and Juicing

Spent some quality time with my sons today, trout fishing on the Little Eastatoe River.  Fish weren’t biting, but the bugs were.  We still had a great time.  Nothing like being on the river.

After we got home, I picked some fresh greens from the garden; lettuce, broccoli, and spinach.

I cut the spinach up, bagged it, and put it in the freezer.  I’m the only one who eats it and I love to put it in my omelets for breakfast along with some bell peppers and tomatoes.

The broccoli and lettuce went into the crisper drawer inside the fridge, to be enjoyed in salads and sandwiches over the next few days.  The lettuce that was in the fridge, from the last picking, was a little too wilted for a tasty salad, but we do not throw it out.  I kept the broccoli stems too.

And here is what I did with them.  This is a cold-pressed juicer I picked up on Amazon for $99 and it is fantastic.  It assembles and disassembles quickly and easily and washing it is a snap.

The finished product; a healthy nightcap for me and some tasty treats for our laying hens tomorrow.
