Always so many things to take care of on my days off......clean, shop, garden, pay bills, etc. So I started my day with my favorite new smoothie.
vanilla almond milk
Then off to Lahaina to take of some biz.....
I had a gift certificate from the Marriott so I decided to use it at one of my favorite local gourmet specialty stores, "Maui Prime"
Yarra Valley Feta
Red Pepper and Ancho Chili Pepper Jelly
Rosemary and Sea Salt crackers ( I had this same brand in Australia...super yum )
After several of these I was no longer hungry for a proper lunch.....
Love this brand.."Earth and Vine Provisions" I bought a ton of this stuff in Yountville ( N. Cali, Wine Country ) a few years back....nice to see I can find it here in the lower latitudes now.....
Then I fertilized the garden with some 16.16.16.
(no fertilizer for these actually)
Look at all my baby citrus leaves :-)
Sugar Snap Peas
The "Sweet 100s" are starting to flower too.
The "Thai Dragons" are starting to produce again as well....
And then it was time to go to the dentist....
Okay so here's the truth....I have not been to the dentist since 2004. That is just horrible! Honestly, I went twice a year before that but I had a million issues with my insurance and then so much time had passed I was scared to go. So, if anyone can remember my post from New Year's Eve one of my resolutions was to finally go to the dentist...so, I finally did and here's the damage after 6 years....
I still have zero cavities and my dentist said I have perfect looking gums. He said he never sees gums like mine unless somebody religiously flosses every single day! He asked me what my routine was and I told him that I flossed every day this week. However in all honesty, I never floss and I'm seriously embaressed to admit it and I'm thinking because I got this "Get out of Jail Free Card" I should start.
So then he said, "Well, it must be your diet...." And then he asked me what I ate ( lol )
I told him, "No soda, no coffee, no candy and lots and lots of fruit and veggies"
He said, "Well....that must be it....most people your age have a lot of dental issues...."
Nice....did he have to say that??? "Your age......"Awesome....It's bad enough I have another birthday in about 2 weeks and I'm actually trying to be REALLY quiet about that so my ovaries don't over hear. It sucks being a women sometimes I swear....
Anyway, Stoked to be cavity free at 33 years, 11 months and 13 days....apparently that's amazing.
cooked organic pasta
Big Island asparagus
rocket ( arugula ) organic Kapalua Farmslocal lemon juice and zest
organic cracked black pepper
percorino romano cheese
white wine vinegar
I also had about 2 glasses of Pinot Grigio....
Alright, Carlos was so annoyed by my gloating about my dentist appointment that he went to bed at 9 pm tonight...I'm sorry but he's next. He's seriously way more overdue than I was. Sucks having a girlfriend sometimes doesn't it.....
