Beet Noodles Salad



I can always tell when my auto-immune is being mismanaged because I can't focus.  I can't see projects through and I feel easily overwhelmed.  Motivation is absent, exhaustion is present and my brain doesn't work.

Remember my last post about June and it's attempts at homicide?  Well there are a few days left and it has about done it's job.  I would like to say that my 'to do' list is getting smaller but that would be a lie.  Our calendar has been so busy that I have barely been able to keep up with the day to day......so none of the weekly, bi-weekly or monthly this month has happened.  I still have a whole garden of my own to put in that has been completely ignored because of my commitments to the school garden and 'Le Grande Installation' trade we did for a friend (more on that later).  Super lame I know but holy cow give me a break eh?  I am hard enough on myself.

So I haven't been cooking up a storm but I have been able to play a little so this is the result of some experimentation on my more energetic of evenings.  It might have also been a desperate attempt at dinner that worked

Remember my beet noodles?
and my Pickled Onions?

Mix them with toasted walnuts and a little goat cheese.  I would recommend adding a little arugula which I would've done if my garden was in.  Then add a dressing

Simple Balsamic Dressing
2 tbsp honey
4 tbsp balsamic
1 tsp dried mustard
1/3 cup olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
