Healthy Slaw

I have had a couple of people ask me about this new "Veg" lifestyle.  So I thought I would share some of our "Veg" recipes occasionally.
So I wanted to find a way to eat more of the sprouts and I found a Healthy Slaw Recipe.  I really like all these flavors..  
Borrowed From the Blog (

I take whatever greens we have available locally (right now: chard, kale, and cabbage) and chop them up in about 1 centimeter pieces. I add lentil, mung bean and garbanzo bean sprouts that I grow myself. I also add cubed goat cheese, red onion slices, pumpkin seeds… really, anything I have on hand that I think would be good and won’t wilt quickly. Even nuts would be good. The dressing is: extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar (good quality, sulfite free), sea salt, pepper, dill, basil, thyme — all to taste. Toss and serve. 

This is So Good..Doug

The Coming Year

It is funny this blog has been an on and off thing for me for several years.  I guess that is how it goes.  I really want to be very intentional about posting here daily.  I have several blogs that I write in.  This being the "personal" blog.  

WE are entering in the new year with much anticiapation about the new adminstration.  And finding out tonight that Hilary might be the new secertary of State is scary.  Very Scary.  

So we will see what comes of that.  

Hopefully more later..

Unlimited Joost Invites

Joost content is improved tremendously. There are now four National Geographic Channels and Much More. We watched several documentaries today. And I have to admit that I watched an episode of my Super Sweet 16 on MTV channel it was crazy how spoiled these kids are!

So I have Unlimited JOOST invites. If you want one... it is yours!!

All Things and Life

So several exciting things have been going on. This blog is in total transition from personal to informational to tech to whatever... I have so many things that I am trying to keep up with at the same time it is hard to stay focused. I am resolved that this will always be a hodge podge of information. It may or may not be useful. But I started the blog for the purposes of sharing my adventures. I was trying to simplify. And in the process things got more complicated. Simplify with a Blog you say? No just simplify my life. We don't have TV. But we watch a lot of TV shows. We Watch Joost. We Watch Netflix. I guess it is more managed but it is still TV. I like entertainment. I watch a lot video podcast. Anyway, so I rant....

But Life is Grand I have Clare and Emma and there are incredible. Real Estate is a tough market but I have launched several new websites and that is cool. Learning a lot about marketing. The youth group is going well. Kids lives are being changed. I am starting to see why God has us here in Blue Ridge. Anyway, so I rant...

The Garden.... I have restarted three times...

So I Rant!
