Easy fresh ginger

After cooking a recipe that called for using a blender to combine fresh ginger with water, and finding that it had an incredible flavor compared to mincing the ginger before cooking, I decided to prep all of the ginger that I bought this way and freeze it in ice cubes.  1-2 cubes add lots of gingery flavor to the average stir-fry or curry!

First garden harvest of the year

The asparagus did not like the cold, wet spring (it snowed at least 5 times in April), but we had some delicious Red Russian kale last week.   Up next: probably the strawberries or radishes.

New Foods in Week 6 of the Allergy Elimination Diet

Instead of the full list of this week's menus, I'm just going to list new items. 

Breakfasts and lunches were the same as previous weeks, until we introduced eggs on Friday.  We had hard-boiled eggs with our lunches - quite a treat after all these weeks.

The only new dinner was a Mexican-style rice with kidney beans and green beans, which made some extra lunches as well.
