What’s Cooking? Nothing!

What's Cookin' | High Altitude Cooking

GG wishes someone would cook for her. Gosh Dang it!

I got away with munching down some yummy salad over at Captain John’s Fawn Harbor & Marina last night during the NSIA Potluck but despite the best plans to get over to the Big Bear Chamber Mixer–things fell through and that meant I had to cook–or rather roast some veggies.

Which is just as well since I am still working and only managed to get in to write a few bits for you now.

Which brings me to a different kind of high altitude cooking post.

Some of you know that they recently found that I was suffering from multiple food allergies, probably caused by other things that have been going on in my life.

As a result, things are kind of limited and GG is bored.

I’ve always been known for my cooking or other kitchen wizardry when it comes to food. Which translates into that I always can come up with something–but when I am tired it isn’t so easy.

Salads of all sorts are the summer preference by far. I usually throw an assortment of goodies on the plate–no less than seven is usually a good number.

Case in point, today I had romaine, red onion, fermented beets, fresh walnuts, dried cranberries, celery, red bell pepper combined on the plate with a bit of grilled chicken on top.

When it comes to a refreshing snack, I sometimes ramp it up like in the picture above, taken on my deck yesterday.

I always experiment and yesterday was pretty simple with raw almonds, coconut, strawberries and 85% dark chocolate–ordered by my doctor. Heh, heh.

Normally my fruit salads have a couple more additives and, in true Mexicana tradition, a squeeze of fresh lime.

I eat pretty darn healthy but despite that, things are getting tough here on earth.

If you don’t believe me, check out this list of highest pesticide foods.

GG wrote about the organic co-op options in Big Bear sometime back but the food movement is gaining momentum.

If you haven’t heard about the True Food Movement take a moment to check it out and then add it to your regular reading.

Around these parts, I love that neighbors share their garden goods with everyone else in the neighborhood this time of year.

Often, goods are left at the Moose Lodge or Post Office for those who make it there and are tempted by the tasty assortment.

BUT, what I would really like you to do is to share some of your favorite dishes with us or your favorite cookbooks.

Take a minute to leave a comment below–and I’ll be back with the TOT on Thursday!
