We managed to have a raw christmas *yay* (we did stray off the raw path after christmas though... back on track now though :))
Anyway, we had plenty of food as you can see.
Mock Salmon Pate
Eddas Spanish Rice
Carrot Pecan "meat"balls
Bell pepper crackers
and plentyful of other veggies, fruits, nuts etc :)

That was quite a spread! I always love your photos. I'm sure you did not feel deprived. :)

Your table looked beautiful. I love hearing that you had a 100% raw Christmas. We didn't do it this year, but next year will be different. Next year I'm going to say no to all cooked food so I can feel better through the holidays. Why should Christmas be any different? I have some emotional eating habits tied to the holidays I think!

Tanja...Are your recipes from Alissa's book?
12-30-2004, 09:17 AM
:D Yes we didn't feel deprived at all. We had a LOT of food :D
I think many of us have emotional issues with big holidays/food. It's the way we all have been used to use food to celebrate, socialize etc.

Wow what beautiful photos, so much yummy food! How did your chili rellenos turn out? I made those a few days ago but they kind of just turned very hard and chewy and didn't get very soft. Did you soak the peppers in oil or water or anything before dehydrating?

I take my hat off to you - wonderful!

Analeah, the rellanos turned out beautifully! They are definetly one of my new favourites!!! They were really soft and moist not dry and hard at all and the cheesestuffing... YUMMY!! First time I did it exactly as the recipe, second time I didn't bother with dehydrating the peppers before stuffing them, the difference wasn't that huge... I used regular bell peppers instead of the long thin ones.
Thank you guys :D

Hmm, ah ok yeah I dehydrated them before hand like the recipe had but maybe I did it a little too long. Also I used the long thin really spicy kind. I was wondering if peeling the skins would have helped because i could barely tear the pepper it was so hard. The cheese filling is really good though isn't it!
