Today was our family day, and we ENJOYED getting a phone call from Mom and Dad D. this morning. Thanks Dad and Mom! =) We didn't do much until this afternoon and we decided to take our kids to a nearby park. It was all sunny and then all of the sudden on the way there it started raining. UGH! So when we got to the park, we hid under a bridge and PRAYED that it would stop, and then when it pretty much quit we let our kids play for a little while. The Lord gave me a pretty good day today, which made me happy. I forgot the camera, but we had a nice little time in the park. I don't get out too much right now, so all the walking we did was good exercise for baby and I. =) We found out that this was a holiday today (it seems that every other Monday is a holiday here), and that the little boat rentals at that park were opened today (normally only open on Sat. and Sun.), but we got there about 10 minutes after the boat rentals closed. Oh well, I guess we can do that another day, for our children are dying to do that. =D We got some snacks while we were out, and just enjoyed being together.
My little Sarah made me this cup of hot tea, got out a little tray, put the roll on it, and wrote me a little note. She was SOOOO EXCITED to be doing this, that she was jumping with joy and clapping as she was getting it ready for me. =) She's a sweetheart.
I'm posting this yummy salad that our Nicaraguan friend Rosita made for us while we lived in Costa Rica. It may sound disgusting, but we really enjoy it.
Happy Healthy Eating!
~Raw Cauliflower Salad~
In large bowl combine the following:
Wash and chop up one whole head of Cauliflower into very SMALL pieces.
Wash and chop up one or two fresh tomatoes into 1/4 inch pieces
Finely Chop up one green onion (or more to your taste)
Squeeze one lemon or two small limes into salad
Salt to taste.
Mix well and allow to stand for at least one hour before serving, stirring often to let flavors blend. If your family is like mine, there probably won't be too much salad left over to put away. We love the blend of the salt and lemon juice and the fresh veggies. =)
