Coconut Fig Prep
Now that everyone is back to their routine, I’m still attempting to find mine.  It’s taking me longer than I thought to get a solid schedule together for my newly found free time.  I have decided to resume writing for among other things.  And my brain is crowded with recipes that are itching to come out.  I don’t know about you, but I get so restless until I put things on paper and organize my thoughts and prioritize my to-do list(s).  I think at this point it’s looking more like a plural!
Fresh Figs
Fig and Raspberries
Last week, I had a few days where I forgot to eat and by the time the kids were fed, bathed and sleeping, I realized that I hadn’t eaten yet.  So this week, I’m fixing things by keeping at hand some seasonal fruits (prickly pears, dates, plums and apples) and my son’s favorite drink: smoothies.
I made a delicious coconut and fig smoothie this morning for our breakfast.  I used some fresh Thai coconut meat and water with some figs and mint from the garden and a few others ingredients for a nutrient-packed breakfast on the go.  Happy (almost) Fall everyone! I can’t wait for the leaves to turn.
