Formerly a Pitcher

A few weeks ago I posted pictures of a vase that was supposed to be a pitcher. Or maybe I should have called it a pitcher that wanted to be a vase. The original article can be found here.  Some folks asked to see images of the finished pot so here it is.

I'm not really sure about the glaze. It seems there was some mistake when the glaze was last mixed up and an incorrect ingredient got put into the mix. This means that this is not the look I was expecting but it is a pretty interesting glaze. What do you think?

Meatless Monday - Cauliflower Blueberry and Avocado Salad

Have you ever tried watercress? It’s a green, leafy vegetable that packs a lot of nutrition and has a slightly peppery taste. It’s not hot, just a little bit of spice.  To prepare it you want to wash and rinse like any other leafy green then simply cut off the largest stems. Toss it into your salad bowl. It’s that easy.

You can cook the cauliflower ahead of time or, if you like raw cauliflower you can skip the roasting altogether.

I added the blueberries to the salad because we have some ripening in the garden and are trying to find every excuse possible to enjoy them.

As you can see, this salad is vegan and gluten free. The protein comes from the almonds.
