Feeding my Kombucha
Been up all night cleaning the house. Teenage daughter hasn't been very helpful with that. So far I have done a huge load of dishes, scrubbed the counters, got the trash out, threw out molding food out of the fridge, and unclogged several drains, including the tub, shower, bathroom sink and kitchen sinks.
It blows my mind she has been ignoring my requests for help when she sees how 12 hour work shifts exhausts me. I have told her if the house is clean I can plan fun activities with her. Take raw food classes out in Sacramento on my days off. She wants to go but can't seem to get it into her head if it's not done that I end up doing it. Any advise out there. What can I do to motivate her?
My soaked cashews spoiled. I hate it they cost so much.
I got back from running errands when I could swear that someone was sitting down the block watching the house as I pulled in. We got in the house when the stranger pulled up in front of my house and rudly and quite loudly banged on the door over and over again with her fist.. I of course ignored it. I refuse to open the door to banging strangers who appear quite angry on my day off. She looked like the ex's boyfriend's old wife.
On top of that the ex and his brother (i think) pulled into my driveway the other week and were snooping by my car. Thankfully my warrior tiger kitty warned me to their presence. They saw me comming and took off. Gives me the creeps. I don't have a fence and can't afford one to protect the car.
Just got done making from Alyssa's book
Miss Ackerly's pesto butter I plan on marinating some mushrooms and stuffing them.
The recipie is so simple and yummy. Hopefully she doesn't mind me posting something so delicious.
1 1/2 cups of pine nuts
1/2 cup basil
1 clove garlic
1 tsp. olive oil. I added more to make the blended blend.
1/4 tsp salt. I ended up using 1/2 tsp.
It needed a tiny bit of water as the blender froze up.
I also made Snow's Ranch Dressing. It's the first time I made it and I really like it.
Then I made a recipie from Matthew Kenney's Everday Raw called Raw Chocolate Chip Cookies
Right now I have in the dehydrator the Raw Chocolate Chips. I can't wait to see how they turn out.
1/34 cups cashews soaked 1-2 hours. I ended up using unsoaked.
1 cup maple syrup (agave would work)
1 cup cacao powder
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
I had to add some water to help it blend. Vita absolutely did not like this mix. She started to get a bit of BO so I turned her off. It did not blend as well as it could of. If only my soaked nuts did not spoil as quickly. It tastes delicious.:)
Blend, pipe, and dehydrate overnight.
Feel the need for Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate so next will be the Chocolate Ganache. Hopefully I can get pictures taken.
A few days ago I dropped a bottle of Kombucha. Well the plastic lid broke off and half the bottle was gone. I spied with my big geen eyes scum floating on top of the liquid. I placed a tablespoon of sugar on it and it started growing. I fed it a tablespoon a day until today which kept it bubbling and fizzing. Within a few days it formed a Scooby. So I brewed some tea up and placed the two inch scooby in it to do it's thing. So it is possible to brew Kombucha from the raw store tea. Can't wait to taste it.
Have to work Halloween night, so I would like to make some kind of raw treat for a potluck.
Well got to get back to blending, dehydrating, and scrubbing. The floors are awaiting and the laundry needs sorting. I will nap sometime today. Have class tonight. Will work on making some tuna to take to work with me.
