Windowsill Garden and Cooking Demo

We have quite the little windowsill garden growing. It all started with scallions that Jared put into water.

Then it was some celery


And then it was some bok choy

I think it’s pretty cool, he has a few other root things growing that have nice green leaves on top.

This would be a fun project to do with kids since you see pretty quick results. That celery was from a week or 2 ago. The first celery he did is now in a pot with dirt.

We also have a lettuce going, basil and some dandelions.

This was also a very exciting weekend, on Sunday I did my very first cooking demo! I had to submit a YouTube video of a cooking demo for an application to a program I want to get into. So here is the full length version, the version I submitted had to be less than 5 min:

And here’s the recipe:

Dill Cashew Cheese

2 cups soaked cashews
juice of 2 lemons
7 probiotic capsules opened
¼ cup water

Soak cashew for at least 4 hours then rinse and drain. Blend the cashews, lemon juice, and probiotic powder. Add water 1 tbsp at a time until it has the consistency of cream cheese. Put the mixture in a strainer (a nut milk bag or paint strainer is perfect) in a sieve and leave it in a bowl. Give it a little squeeze to get any excess water out and let sit at room temp with a towel covering it for 10 – 24 hours. Chill for at least 2 hours and mix in chopped dill or any other dried or fresh herbs you like.
