One of my girlfriends works with Carlos and she sent him home with this last night :-)
How nice was that! She lives in Haiku ( Maui's North Shore ) and has a ton of mature fruit trees in her yard. She gave me some Lilikoi, Avocados and Hawaiian Oranges :-)
Sort of a lazy day over here.....It rained all morning and afternoon so I kept myself busy doing things around the house.
I started my morning off with some Stash Chai Tea
and then a Green Juice of course...
Green Juice ( for 2 )
1 lb of organic Kale
2 extra large organic Granny Smith Apples
1/2 local lemon
1 large cucumber
Then loads of laundry, sweeping, scrubbing and emailing....
And since it was still raining, I figured it would be a good time to make some Pot Stickers to eat and freeze as well...
I threw fresh organic peas, extra firm organic tofu, sea salt and a Thai Dragon chili in the Cuisinart to form a simple filling. Sometimes, I'll steam these... but today I baked them in the oven until they were nice and crispy.
I also made a dipping sauce that consisted of Thai Sweet Chili Sauce, chopped cilantro, lime juice and chopped roasted peanuts...yum!
I shared this with Carlos....
I had to have dinner alone again this evening so I made a whole box of "Fantastic" Tabouli Mix ( so I would have extra for tomorrow ) and a simple side salad.
organic mixed greens
black sesame seeds
Again....like I said earlier, lazy day.....I didn't work out or even drive my car. I did house work, cooked and paid bills. People ask me all the time, "What's it like living on Maui??" Well, honestly it's probably not that different to how you live your life.....I have laundry to do, toilets to clean and house full of sand to keep me busy. But yes, when it's nice out....it's pretty great. However, this was not the case today....oh well.
