Summer Specials from Chef Nate

Green Smoothie Pops
Blend your favorite summer fruit (we like to use mango, kiwi, nectarines, and/or peaches) with your favorite greens (we like chard, spinach, or kale) and freeze into popsicles.
This one had: 1 apple (with skin on), 1 banana, 1 mango, 1 kiwi, 4 big leaves of rainbow chard and 2 cups of water. This made quite a few pops! For more ideas/recipes for green smoothies (that can be made into summertime pops), check out this site.

Nate's Fried Zucchini
1 Garden Zucchini - sliced (I had fun using a mandolin slicer)
Garlic Powder
*Heat a little olive oil on the stove. Add zucchini and sprinkle as much garlic powder and basil as you want. Cook/saute on medium heat until it looks good to you.

Blueberry Lemonade
(This is one of Judita's recipes)
1 1/4 cups of blueberries
3 cups of water
1 cup of ice cubes
1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup of agave

Puree 1 cup of the blueberries in a food processor. Transfer to a pitcher and stir in water, ice, lemon juice, agave and remaining blueberries.

Great Golfing!

As dictated by Nate...
I went to a golf camp. It was fun. We went to the putting green where I had to putt very softly. We got to play "ring around the fire". After that we did chipping. And another time we did sand wedging. My favorite thing was going to the driving range. On the last day I won a visor and 2 golf balls (light green and yellow). The one bad thing was having to tuck my shirt into my shorts everyday.

*This was a free week long (2 hours per day) clinic offered by the Los Angeles County Junior Golf Program. They offer these clinics at a variety of LA County golf courses throughout the year.

My Latest Film Endeavor

I just finished another short film. This one is called Grounded and it's a surf film! I've been having fun with my gopro camera and another really sweet camera I've been able to use. Hope ya'll enjoy. :)
