Saturday night I watched some rugby. Todd’s team played in Orange County at 7pm. It was a late one.
Todd’s #15 (fullback)
They won! It was a great game. Todd intercepted the ball & ran the length of the field to score. It was awesome!
A couple of guys (including us) went to the other team’s ‘Drink Up’. Traditionally after a rugby game the home team feeds the away team somehow. After this game, they all went to a local pizza joint down the street. Look at the beer towers on each table!
In typical rugby player style.
Pizza was served. The other team was very nice & made sure we all had what we wanted. We watched them give awards & pound beer when receiving those awards. One guy even had to drink out of the boot. He scored for his first time meaning they pour beer into an old cleat & he has to drink it. It reminded me of the rugby festivities in college.
As we were leaving Todd noticed they had Moose Drool on tap. He couldn’t pass it up & decided to get one.
It was a late night of rugby but fun!
This morning I woke up and decided to see if I could use the juicer my mom gave me a loong time ago.
I had no idea how the thing worked so I put a carrot in to see what would happen. I thought it wasn’t working until this started creeping out from underneath. Oops. I guess it does work.
Now that I know where the juice comes out, I went back and tried again.
I juiced anything in my refrigerator that needed to be used. A carrot, a whole bunch of broccoli greens..
Now we are getting some juice..
1/4 of a head of cabbage..
a whole bunch of parsley..
A head of lettuce on its last leg..
A whole orange (I think our CSA oranges are blood oranges, the flesh is half orange & half reddish)
Look at the juice I got.
You know this has to be good for you. It didn’t taste bad but it didn’t taste excellent either. I think it was what I expected for a green juice. Todd had a taste and said it wasn’t bad. That’s a good sign!
My first attempt at juicing was a success! (A few mishaps along the way but in the end it all worked out 🙂 )
Now about this mess & veggie pulp.. Is there something I can do with veggie pulp? Maybe I should start composting..
Have a great Sunday! I think we are going to try a hike.. we’ll see how these calves hold up.
