Chip's lunch: September 20, 2010

This lunch was a rush job this morning. Since we had some CSA veggies to use up, I decided to invent some quinoa with vegetables. While that was cooking, I threw together everything else. The rollups were the last part. I considered adding another fruit, but I'm trying to watch the sugar in these lunches. I had bought these Field Roast Wild Mushroom Deli Slices the other day, and figured some rollups were another good way to use that up, as well as some more CSA veggies. I didn't realize it until now, but this lunch is vegan too! I love when that happens.

Organic quinoa with organic peas and CSA corn, homemade vegan pumpkin bread, organic Thompson raisins, organic dark chocolate, organic dried cranberries, whole wheat rollups with Field Roast, CSA kale, organic mushrooms, and Roma tomato from our garden, and a September Wonder apple from the farmers' market.


  1. Hi !
    Been a fan for a while, but I'm mainly a lurker, I've never commented. I spent a good deal of my sick day reading the archives of your blog and I saw that you foster greyhounds - I never knew that ! I have a rescue greyhound myself, and he's the best dog. But I do have a question - I noticed some pictures of your greyhounds running leashless. Just wondering, do you do that in an area you're sure is fully fenced, or do you trust them not to run ? I'm always so nervous, my greyhound is hardly ever leashless.
    Thanks !

  2. It's so neat that you have a greyhound! They are amazing dogs...I just love them. Ours are NEVER off-leash unless they're in a fully fenced area. There's a school nearby that has a fully fenced yard, and they let us run the dogs around. The last few fosters, though...I couldn't pay them to run around! We mostly just did walks with them. We also have a fenced backyard where they can burn off some energy.

    I've always been told that you need to love a greyhound enough to never trust it. Letting our fosters off-leash is not worth losing them, no way. I always say that Jack (our current foster, WWW Kojak) doesn't need a leash because he's attached to my hip on walks, but I would hate to be proven wrong, you know?
