Egg shells ~ Garlic in Grow Bags ~ Three New Recipes

I took some egg shells out to toss in the garden (where the tomatoes will be planted), and took a look-see at the garlic.



I am thrilled to say, that some of it has green tops.  Not all, but I'm hoping it all comes up.  The only downside of grow bags - squirrels.  I had to plant a garlic clove that a rodent dug up.  Otherwise, I am a happy gal to see this.

Tried three new recipes yesterday.  Due to lack of ingredients on hand, each one was adjusted.


Cod in the crock pot with seasonings and onion.  Didn't have red onion, so I used white.  It cooked perfectly and tasted great.


Veggie quinoa in the crock pot.  Didn't have carrots, so I just made it without.  Cookbook said cook 4-6 hours on low.  It cooked in 4.


Low carb chocolate chip cookies (almond flour).  I didn't have maple syrup for these.  I didn't have any eggs, so this recipe was fitting to try.  These were so good!

The first two recipes are in the cook book, "Fix-It and Forget-it Healthy Slow Cooker Cookbook.  The cookie recipe is online (Almond Flour Cookies with no eggs, Detoxinista).

Each of those look delicious! I am working to make my husband low carb meals as well. I am sure that he would enjoy the cookies.

I loved the look of the crock pot cod and am quite keen to give the cookies a try.

Kristina said...

mamasmercantile, the cod was delicious. All three recipes were.

Those cookies are right up my alley! I use my egg shells, too - I crush them up and feed them back to the chickens to help their calcium intake. I also add them to whatever bed I will be growing zucchini in. If I forget, and the leaves start to droop, I stick some Tums by the roots!
