Busy week and "burgers"

First DH is grateful for all the encouragement. It has not been real easy nor real hard, but he is still trying to hang in there. Well, this week has been busy. We have either been watching our adorable grandson or going to doctors. All is ok, just tests for DH's back. Brandie has been cleaning some houses for some of the ladies in our church, which gave us time with Jr. We get to enjoy playing while she is working hard earning a few bucks. This has been a blessing on both accounts. So proud of you sweetheart. You are such a hard worker. Now on with some food porn. :o)
Look at this healthy Vegan grandson of ours!
He loves smoothies. This one is spinach, bananas, and blueberry.

Snack time at work. Heirloom tomatoes, peach, and carrots all from our CSA.
Can't forget "An apple a Day keeps the Doctor Away"
Apples are near the top of the deadly dozen. They are heavily coated with pesticides.
I only eat organic apples.
Organic Fuji. Yummm my favorite

Green smoothies are the breakfast of choice. Here we have spinach, banana, pineapple, and a little bit of kiwi. Don't you just love the color?

Boca burger dinner. DH loved these. I coated them with just a bit of BBQ sauce, added lettuce, onion, yellow heirloom tomatoes and mustard. Along side is some CSA zucchini and potato salad with cherry tomatoes from our garden.

Now isn't that a priceless picture. Two very important men in my life. DH and Jr.

I still can't get over how much Jr. has grown! And I can't tell you how much I LOVE the picture of him drinking his smoothie. He is too adorable and obviously gets special love from his grandparents. You guys are eating so well!

Yes, the smoothie does look great. Though I have to admit I have a hard time imagining how it would taste. Do you have a recipe to share?
