:) Raw has been all about the yum for me lately! lol. The raw candy...omg I have died and gone to heaven! No one else in my family likes it (I think its the maca they don't liek though I don't notice the flavor) so its all for meeeee! I have been experimenting with different raw recipes, marinating various veggies (eggplant marinated is divine!) and have been letting the kids be more involved in the food prep...which makes them want to eat it more, lol. They are LOVING strawberry 'ice cream' for breakfast, along with their latest fav apple pie apples which is raisins, and apple chunks mixed with a bit of agave and cinnamon.
I...got...an...EXCALIBUR DEHYDRATOR!!!! Woot! Won it on ebay. I am over the moon. I am SO impressed with it! I had a cheapo dehydrator before and it never worked right, too hot or too cool and ROUND and and....I just love my Ex! I have not been this happy about getting an appliance since hubby got me a Dyson, lol . Yup, I am that much of a goober, lol.
I am going to start some crackers and chips today, as the kids are needing some snacky food to help keep them excited about raw. I figure cheeze-n-crackers, chips and dip, cookies...that ought to do it! I am trying ome zuchinni 'pasta' for dinner tonight for the first time. Making it as a side dish for everyone else (I do cooked meals for dinner for hubby and the kids- mostly vegan) just to get them to try it. I have asparagus marinating as well.
Friday we are headed to our friends HUGE garden to pick org. blueberries, and veggies. He plants 2 acres of gardens for him and his wife, lol. They are on vacation so they need someone to pick. I am ALL about free veggies! My garden is doing well, though I am already planning for next year! My lettuce is about done, but everything else is plugging along.
Guess that's about where I'm at! :)
