    I love your last photo, the cake and berries look so good.

      Hi Tracey, thank you. The cake is so good and I am loving the strawberries right now. Thanks for coming this morning!

    Lots of yummy things! What do you use your frozen greens for – smoothies?

    • NaturallyFunDays : Marcela April 10, 2014 / 10:06 am

      Hi JenniferKidDoing, I am freezing nettle for sauces and soups. Haven’t tried them in smoothies yet. Thanks for stopping by in this little space of ours.

        Oh nettles! How awesome. Did you forage for them? It’s a little early, here, but I am looking forward to finding some.

      • NaturallyFunDays : Marcela April 10, 2014 / 3:31 pm

        Yes, we went into the woods to look for them. We have a spot, and it’s lots of fun every time. It had started to bloom some, but I think we got it perfect just before these last sunny days, in our parts. We have our share for the year, I think. Hopefully it will last ’til next spring.

    were you freezing greens in an ice cube tray? that is very cool

    • NaturallyFunDays : Marcela April 10, 2014 / 10:05 am

      Hi HeatherMama, yes. We went to pick nettle last weekend, and I am freezing them after blanching and chopping them. I can use them in soups or sauces, anything later on.
      Thanks for stopping by!

        What a fantastic idea, I think I shall try this approach!

    Thanks for sharing peeps into your kitchen. I love that you have a menu board. I must get more organised. My husband was cutting the grass yesterday and I made him promise not to cut the nettles. I have earmarked them for either a quiche or risotto. I’m dying to know what your cake is. LIke Tracey, I think it looks so good.

    • NaturallyFunDays : Marcela April 10, 2014 / 3:29 pm

      Hi Debby. Oh good! We have the nettle for next year. It had started to bloom in some parts, so we were lucky to get our share for the year. We freeze some, and we drink it (warm and cold tea) fresh as we have it that day, and I dry the rest. Everyone loves it. Oh… that cake is so good. It’s apple sauce cake from Martha Stewart, but I’m tweaking it every time. I like it less butter, less sugar, change for half whole wheat, and a little more apple sauce. It is a treat for sure!

    Frozen nettle? Fantastic! (and I’m still loving your menu board!)

    • NaturallyFunDays : Marcela April 10, 2014 / 9:25 pm

      Thank you! Yes. Love, love both things. Frozen (handy) nettle when we need it, and the visible (making me plan ahead) menu.

  6. Anja April 10, 2014 / 10:15 pm

    Love your pictures oh and cake and strawberries a wonderful combination

    • NaturallyFunDays : Marcela April 10, 2014 / 11:37 pm

      Hi Anja. Thank you. Yes! The strawberries were so sweet… maybe we’ve been waiting for them for so long they taste even better! Thanks for coming to visit.

    Your photos are so pretty. I love the chalkboard menu!

  8. Erin April 11, 2014 / 11:07 am

    This all looks delicious, and I particularly love the photo of the greens at the top!

    • NaturallyFunDays : Marcela April 11, 2014 / 8:50 pm

      Thank you Erin. It was a wild greens salad brought as present from my kids on their out in the woods.

  9. NINA FERRANDO of Mama Roux April 11, 2014 / 2:38 pm

    Thank you for stopping by my blog! I love your images. Great idea to freeze greens for quick additions. I will have to try nettles sometime.

    • NaturallyFunDays : Marcela April 11, 2014 / 8:52 pm

      Thank you Nina, for coming here. It’s been fun seeing everyone’s kitchen and their makings. Hasn’t it? Have a great weekend!
