This morning I took leftovers from two pies and turned them into Fruit Roll ups. Can hardly wait to see how they turn out.
I had lots of time yesterday to play in the kitchen. Found some sweet potatoes that had been lost in the fridge and made Alissa's "Sweet Potato Pie" for dinner. Also had 3 cups of Blueberries that I needed to use so I made Alissa's "Blueberry Pie". Even though the recipes were cut it half they each made a nice sized 8" pie.
I ate a quarter of the Sweet Potato Pie for dinner and later ate a quarter of the blueberry pie for dessert, and sent a quarter home with my brother. While the pies were tasty and very satisfying, I didn't really want to eat more pie today. Rather than let it go to waste I had a crazy idea, put the remaining half of each pie in the Vitamix (separately) and make puddings. It took a little water to get the blade turning, but the puddings came out thick, smooth, and delicious. I ate some for breakfast. The rest of the puddings are in the dehydrator, spread out on teflex sheets.
The only other food I ate yesterday was a green smoothie. Orange, banana, spinach, kale, and frozen strawberries. Got to have that again today. Soooo Good! Oops, almost forgot about the Brownie Balls...ate 2 of those.
It was a good day, food wise and in general. I'm looking forward to another good day today. :)
