A little trick I learned in culinary school for how to keep cucumbers crunchy…

You guys, I must make taco salad once a week.
It has been a while since I’ve posted, but we got a nice little rain storm this weekend which left me a little time to do some baking. The water turned a nice shade of brown (thanks to all the lovely runoff), and I usually like to stay out of the water for a few days when that happens (unlike Miles who was surfing in the rain yesterday).
So like many of you, Miles and I were feeling a little mmm.. how you say… heavy? after the holidays and we decided to do a little “cleanse” of our own. In my opinion that if you exercise daily, and eat right proportions that there’s no need to do diets or “cleanses”. If you’re happy and able to move around the way you want, then I think its all good (isn’t that what life is about? who has time to watch every little thing that goes in their mouth?).
Sometimes lettuce can just get in the way of what a salad is really all about… the cheese, the dressing and the croutons. Just kidding! THE VEGGIES! I love a big bowl of grated carrots (so easy to eat vs big chunks), cucumber, tomatoes and onion. Who needs that pesky lettuce!
