Desert for dinner

I thought we would do something fun for dinner. I thought perhaps desert would be good. So I fliped through Alissa's book and found Date Nut Torte. I had never had a Torte before but it looked sweet and tasty.
I had fun making it though I didn't add the lemon juice. It just sounded odd. I did add some vanilla and cinnamon and topped it with shredded coconut.
It was sooooo good. Though my husband and I agree that I should've used the lemon juice. We couldn't taste the vanilla and cinnamon either. But hey...that's what experimenting is all about! lol
I also realized that I ate a lot of nuts and fruit today but no veggies. I need my veggies! lol I'm going to probably munch on some sno peas later. Tomorrow I think I'll have a salad for dinner.
As for who liked the torte? Everyone. Though the kids didn't want to eat theirs. I think it was just tooo sweet. So my husband is making chicken for the kids.
I love it when he told Orion: "Soon we'll be eating nothing but healthy food like this" Orion was a bit upset. I think it was more because he was thinking that he'll never have some of his favorite foods again.
Frankie and I agree though...We're going to introduce raw to the kids slowly...starting with one dinner a week.
