View Full Version : Easy dinner tonight!
03-21-2006, 09:13 PM
Just wanted to share what I made for dinner tonight, really easy and very filling as I came home so hungry!
I'd made a batch of Alissa's Nacho Cheeze (which I LOVE!) so that was already waiting for me in the fridge. Then I made a corn/guacamole with corn, avocado, cherry tomatoes, garlic and squeezed an orange over the top.
On romaine lettuce leaves (and I used the tiny tender ones in the middle of the head) I layered the Cheeze and then the corn/guacamole. If you like sprouts that would also make a nice addition. It was soooo good!
I guess since it was cold and rainy today I wanted to have a heavier meal, now I'm off to have a piece of Date-Nut Torte with lots of berries on top. Yum! That Date-Nut Torte has quickly become my comfort food!

Rainy today??? It was beautiful here in Sequim!!!
Sounds yummy, I have looked at that recipe but it sounds intimidating to me, so I skip over it. I have been craving salsa alot lately, so maybe I should try those nachos...
I made the pineapple cake this weekend and was so disappointed, I had to throw the whole thing away. I think it was the buckwheat that just didn't taste right to me in a cake. So it is always so nice to hear when one makes a delicious meal that they enjoy!! Good for you:)
The date nut torte is my favorite!!!! YUM!!! That is what I should get up and do,, make a yummy dessert!
Oh, it is soooooooooo simple yet so wonderful, the banana ice cream. I have been making that the last couple of days and my children even love it.

Oh yes, banana ice cream is most certainly a favorite of mine too! That is too bad the pineapple cake didn't turn out, I haven't tried it.
It is always nice and sunny and warm in Sequim isn't it! I remember living in Port Angeles years ago and I couldn't believe the difference in weather from Seattle, what a lovely city of the state you live in! Enjoy that sunshine extra for me!
Oh YES -- banana ice cream! I keep frozen banana pieces in my freezer all the time and it's so wonderful to be able to whiz up a big bowlful of banana ice cream instantly when the ice cream cravings hit. My fave is to add a good tablespoonful of agave syrup or honey and some chopped walnuts or pecans -- to die for!
About to have a burger on a crisp lettuce leaf heaped with avocado, tomato, onion and mayo for my lunch...

Lily, did you dehydrate the nacho cheese first? I was thinking of making the nachos from Alissa's book.
Hi tvillemome, it was Cinnamon, not me, who did the nacho cheese! I hven't attempted any of the cheeses yet -- have been eating my burgers 'cheeseless' !
I too would be interested to know more about the nacho cheese, Cinnamon -- is it really cheesy-tasting?

It is cheesy tasting, I really do enjoy it a lot and my non-raw family love it as a dip too. I haven't tried dehydrating it but I've read some where on this site that someone using a recipe similar to this one did and it turned out great. They spread it out in little rounds and after it dried a bit (don't know how long this would take) they put it on celery and said it was oh so good!
That certainly sounds like one to try! Thanks, Cinnamon.

The nacho cheese does taste very good, though if you have a problem with high fat stuff I'd really suggest it in moderation. :D Oh my I had it on the broccoli n cheese and unfortunately it tasted so good and I got sooooo sick *lol* I've also found that if I sub some of the nuts for sunflower seeds I do better with handling the fat as well.
