Wheatgrass Party Time

We had a wheatgrass party at the Joys House tonight. About two weeks ago, I was at the health food store and found out that someone had ordered a tray of wheatgrass that had just arrived. I didn't know you could order a tray of wheatgrass. I kept that in mind and last Thursday I ordered a tray. It came in on Saturday when we were away, so I picked it up today.

One of the reasons I chose the juicer I bought a few months ago, was because it can juice wheatgrass It's an Omega 8005. So we got to play with making wheatgrass juice when I got home from work today. I say we, because DH did help me. He cut the grass and put it on the counter for me while I fed it into the juicer. The one tray of wheatgrass made about 28 ice cubes. I measured it out and each ice cube is about 1 oz. It's in the freezer right now and when it's completely frozen I'm going ot transfer it to a freezer bag.

I'm so excited to have fresh wheatgrass at home I might be able to give up the 1/2 and 1/2 cup of coffee I've been having the past few days. I had been getting the frozen stuff at the health food store, but it doesn't taste the same as the fresh real stuff, so I haven't felt it was as potent. Before that, I would drive to Newark, DE to a juice bar down there, but it's so out of the way and it get's expensive, so I stopped that for the cheaper frozen stuff that was easier to get, but now this is just awesome to be able to make the real stuff myself!
