Hello All,

So, it has been awhile since I posted.  Simple dinner last night.  Fish store was selling line caught gulf red snapper for $5.65 per pound.  My fish guy gave me 2.25 lbs for an even 12 dollars. We are friends.  He rounds down.

I simple put a couple of cuts into the flesh of the fish on either side. I salted inside and out, squeezed a few lemons over the fish and let it get to room temperature.

After that, I simply grilled the fish on both sides for a short period of time prior to finishing off the fish in a 450 degree oven.

We live in Brooklyn. The Borough of Brooklyn has 2.5 million people. It is the 5th largest city in the United States.  We are very fortunate to have this little plot of land.  The space is approximately 20 feet wide and 45 feet deep.  When we first moved in, the space was a mess out here. Completely overgrown, full of bugs and garbage. It was gross.

We completely gutted the backyard and replanted everything with the exception of that huge tree in the corner. But everything down to the hundreds of pounds of rocks I carried in 50 pound bags, has been brought in by us. It has been a labor of love and a lot of fun.  It’s so strange to be in your backyard planting flowers, digging up dirt one minute, walk out your front door and be in the middle of an urban scene moments later.

I am keeping with my breakfast juicing routine.  Thinking I was purchasing Kale, I grabbed mustard greens instead.  This definitely added a spice to the mix.  This morning I had a beet, apple, cucumber,carrot, celery, ginger and mustard green mixture.  It was pretty bad to taste but, i jugged it down fairly quickly.

Regardless of the taste, it made me feel pretty wonderful.  That ginger coursing through my veins, it feels like I injected pepper juice into my bloodstream.

Unfortunately, I am not all that healthy. In addition to juicing, I also had some eggplant parm for breakfast.  I made it last night for my wife.  She is going to our friends house tonight for dinner so, she will bring a tray over. I had to taste it to make sure it was ok.

I on the other hand will be having some pretty amazing sushi with my cousin.  I will let you know how that goes.
