Slice of Life Challenge #sol14 My Missed Tuesday SOL

Wow! It is already Wednesday. I forgot to write my Tuesday's Slice of Life challenge story. I will write it anyway!

Tastes Differ!
I had a guest coming over. Half of the day was spent cooking. Oh, it is a good topic for a slice of life. Cooking helps me to relax. I enjoy cooking especially when I welcome somebody to my home and introduce to the Russian culture. I usually prepare the Russian dishes. This time I made my favorite beet salad. Not all Americans love beets, by the way. But when they try my beet salad (boiled and shredded beets, garlic and walnuts + Russian mayo), they fall in love with this amazing dish!

I also made the Russian soup (in Russia it is called "Schee") and Salmon in a hazelnut flour! Hm! Yummy! I enjoy making dishes with kale lately. I never knew about kale in my previous Russian life.
I learned about kale, here, in the U.S. I read a lot about this fantastic source of energy, its important diverse ingredients that help to stay healthy, young, and fit. See it for yourself in the inforgraphics below!

I make smoothies, salads, soups, and garnish side dishes with kale. Absolutely LOVE it! Of course, it is a matter of taste and acceptance. My guest chose other dishes I cooked, instead. Tastes differ!

It was really a relaxing day but then, when my friend left, I had to catch up with the work I hadn't done.

I am getting ready for a big event starting on Friday, Spring BLOG Festival.

I will present on "Blogging to Reflect."

I am behind with reading and commenting on my 4 classes student blogs and assignments. No time to breeze. That's the slice of my life.

I will do my best to not miss blogging next Tuesday!

I love kale. Believe it or not, I didn't have it 'til a little less than 3 years ago when I had my daughter. Now it's a favorite.
