Easy Green Smoothie Recipe

Super easy recipe for my favorite green veggie juice!  All you need is:

-1 banana
-2 cups mixed leafy greens (I used a mix of spinach, kale & arugula since that is what I have tons of in my garden)
-juice from 2 oranges

Just throw everything in a blender until liquified, then chill & enjoy!

Garden Fresh Herb Salad

We had one of our best salads ever tonight.  I gathered some fresh ingredients from our garden.  I had a red bell pepper, a few tomatoes, some mixed greens lettuce, and I also got some fresh parsley and a couple varieties of mint.  I chopped the herbs up very fine, and tossed them with all of the other ingredients.  I sprinkled with a little rice vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, and crumbled aged cheddar cheese.  I think the addition of the herbs gave the salad a little extra pop that really made it very tasty!  We had this with a few Italian sausages grilled on the barbecue for an amazing dinner.
