I lasted about 3 (long) weeks without my beloved food processor (actually longer than I thought) but I couldn’t take it anymore so we just HAD to order one! Besides, why not have our “home-away-from-home’s” kitchen as fully equipped as my own?
There are many things that I love about the countryside (and many things I hate, such as spiders…but that’s another post!) and one of them is having a huge garden, along with a ton of different fruit trees (apple, apricot, orange, lemon, plum, fig, pomegranate, the list goes on) right outside our back door. I also love that my son can join in on the fun and help prepare his own “meals” with fresh, organic ingredients. I have no doubt that what he learns today will help cultivate his love for food and healthy eating.
It doesn’t get any more organic than this! (NB: You KNOW your fruits and veggies are organic and pesticide-free when they are surrounded by insects, such as SPIDERS!).
On today’s breakfast menu…fresh orange juice!
My son even had a go at picking a few (with a little help from nonno!).
Going in for the kill…
Good to the last (piece of) pulp!
Making fresh orange juice is one thing….making it with freshly picked oranges from your OWN garden is another!
Breakfast of (Italian) champions…a strawberry jam-filled brioche and fresh orange juice!
Now onto the next juicing recipe…
