Now that I have been here a while I am no longer dizzy. The first few days here I was rocking and rolling with the change in environment. I arrived in Northern California dizzy with the beauty of springtime here. These hills with the soft greens of a wet spring do something to me. I start to walk really slow, see mice and jack rabbits, notices leaves unfurling. A few weeks of being here has felt like long drinks of cold water…so thanks for that!
And eating is simple and sweet here. As one of my friends in Mexico says, “people in California eat a lot of leaves,” and I am happily munching away on leaves and rice.
So yesterday in between a walk in the vineyard and some work I made a salad that tickled me. Here is what went in it. Feel free to adapt it to your refrigerator! And I know a few weeks ago I had promised to write more and I am ready now.…
Mixed baby greens
Basil chopped fine
Red onion sliced thin
Mix in a bowl and serve with some good olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Maybe eat with someone who makes you laugh.
