I recently received the newest issue of Clean Eating magazine, and found it chock full of some amazingly delicious-looking recipes! I particularly like that there's a whole section of side dishes. I often struggle to come up with some different way to prepare veggies - the past couple of months have been full of a lot of steamed broccoli, asparagus and green beans. Not that there's anyting wrong with that, but it gets a little old after a while and I really want to try something new.
Well, here's something new: Fresh Dill and Cucumb er Salad! The magazine said it pairs well with beef, which is good becasue I cooked up a couple steaks for us tonight!
The cucumber salad was delicious and super quick and easy to make! I didn't have any fresh dill, so I substituted dry, but I don't think it made any difference. It was still yummy!

This week, in honour of the late Ray Bradbury, I'm reading Fahrenheit 451. I read Dandelion Wine last year and Something Wicked This Way Comes years ago. Oh, and I think we used to have a volume of his short stories that I read in high school, but I don't think I have that book any more. Anyway, I'm excited to start this one! Here's my teaser from page 52 of my nook:
"She's dead. Let's talk abaout someone alive, for goodness' sake"
Last night mom and I went to the Atascadero Main Street Association's Art and Wine Tour. There were several wineries and artists set up in various businesses in the downtown area (though I'm not sure how many artists were really out there as I only saw one guy set up outside of "Bling it On! Babe" The only other art I saw was at Envisions Gallery and Dexter Smith Gallery & Gifts). Most of the wineries were new to us. I'm always amazed at the number of new wineries that keep popping up around here. We started out with a glass of wine and a rather sad little cheese plate at Haven then headed out to taste some wine and see some art.
We ended the evening at our favourite coffeeshop, Bru. They had a winery there, too, but by then we were vino-ed out, and just had lattes instead!
