Good morning everyone! Around here we only have one week of school left, and it’s been crazy with all sorts of end of year activities. I’m looking forward to lots of summer fun with the kids, and not packing lunches or stressing about getting through homework every night. (Now if I could just figure out how to stop the kids from bickering, I’d be all set. Yes, I know it’s all about the right threats, but I’m not very creative…)
Look where I went on Friday!
Saturday I helped throw another shower (that’s three this year, I love it!), so I knew I couldn’t be here for the first Rockford farm market of the season. Instead I buzzed into Grand Rapids to hit the Fulton St. market for the first time this year. I got spinach and broccoli to stir fry (not at the same time), some greens that I’ll throw into this Caprese salad, and some yummy asparagus that we’ll have for dinner tonight. I love fresh, local food!!!
Did you go to the farm market or harvest anything good from your garden this weekend?!

- Also, later this week I'll be sending out another Kitchen Kop newsletter (I only send them out once in a while), and I'll be answering questions on weight loss, water filters, ovarian cysts, and cleaning fresh produce. Be sure to sign up at that link if you haven't yet so you don't miss anything!
- Thank you to Shannon who sent me a YouTube video that she made showing a significant upward obesity trend here in the U.S. Yes, we all knew that’s been happening, but when you see it so clearly like this, it doesn’t set well. Thankfully, she also shares the way back in this video and gives us hope!
- Another thank you goes out to Irene, who brought the Senomyx issue to my attention. No matter where you stand on this controversial topic, I’m fairly certain that this will disgust you. However, after reading the article, I was actually very impressed with Campbell Soup, believe it or not! Now if they could just listen to consumers and also get rid of the trans fats, high fructose corn syrup, and other nasty food additives, then I’d be positively blown away!
