Turkey served with Pesto on a bed of Rapini. Plus bonus mystery meal.

This was pretty simple and delicious. Rapini is very addictive. It took me several tries before I even liked it, and now I can't get enough! I am very thrilled that even at the end of a Canadian February my indoor basil plant provided more than enough foliage for a large batch of pesto. It is so green it looks fake! The turkey was simply baked with some spices, kosher salt and pepper.

Ok, so I have a back-log of food photos. This one I had to post today because I have no idea what the reddish-orange blob is. I am guessing it is some form of protein...and I'm leaning towards fish based on the size, shape and lemon wedge. Not sure what's on it, red pepper sauce?? Something tomatoe-y? Perhaps paprika? I dunno, but it doesn't look all that great in a photo, does it?

I have been on the lookout for riding opportunities outside of lesson time. I love my lessons, but I can only afford once a week right now (saving for a house!) and I want more saddle time. I KNEW there must be people out there who didn't have enough time to work with their horses, I just had to find them!

I did, finally. And they are Fjords! I've never ridden a Fjord, so my curiosity is piqued for sure. I meet everyone this weekend! The woman sounds very nice and said she would be happy if I was there 7 days a week. As nice as that sounds, I am a little worried her expectations might be too high. If I could take that much time I would own my own horse! I'm sure we'll work it out when we meet. She is already offering me showing opportunities! Pretty crazy.
