looks lovely. I took a picture of my evening meal but I can't post it til I get on a computer tomorrow. My phone allows me to share to either SkyDrive or Facebook but not forums.

One suggested shredding the pumpkin for a smoothie (low budget blender won't handle chunks of squash, that's for sure).
Annoyed I haven't lost weight after some grueling physical work on the farm this last week, but I know my body is under stress living between two places and not really feeling at home in our house (shared). Off to look at an apartment now.
Renee, what can I say? Adopt me? Hire me when your raw kitchen business takes off big time?

http://nouveauraw.com/raw-recipies/desserts/ there's a couple pumpkiny recipes on this link. I haven't tried them but the site looks very good and others seem to like the recipes. I haven't looked on fb again yet because transferring pages from there to here needs more patience than a saint when on mobile.
I made this pumpkin pie last night:
It's okay. It's not very sweet and the flavors are a bit mellow, but it's pretty close.
How's everyone doing?
I had a collard wrap last night. I tossed sliced tomatoes, onion, and celery in salt, olive oil and lemon juice. On top of that, I put carrot pulp and avocado slices (sprinkled more salt on those). It was really good.
I'm working up to the honey oat bread. I have almond pulp now I need to sprout, dehydrate and grind oat groats in to 2 cups of flour. I have some sprouted oat groats dehydrating now.
Speaking of dehydrated oat groat flour, I made an AWESOME recipe: onion rings!
Rob's "Fried" Onion Rings
1 onion sliced into rings
1/2 cup of sprouted oat flour
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp sea salt
many many grinds of fresh pepper
extra virgin olive oil (used to coat the rings)
Dehydrate the slices of onion at 105 until they are pretty hard but still pliable.
Put the flour, the seasoning, the salt the pepper into a small bowl.
In another small bowl, put enough olive oil that you can coat the rings.
Dredge each ring first through the olive oil and then through the flour mixture.
Dehydrate them again until crispy. This may take a while and there's a good change that they will be gone (ya know, taste testing) before they get crunchy.
They are really really good. I cannot keep the cooked fooders off them. Makes me wonder if I'll actually get to make the oat bread of if this batch of flour will all be consumed making onion rings.
I'm joining the Monday fasting again today. Water. Blasted bullet still not turned up! I have mushroom soup ready to make when it does.
thanks renee! i can probably figure something out just knowing what's in it :)
rob - i'm not saying that i am b/c when I say I am I don't, so I'm just . . . around
here are the best looking raw desserts i have seen lately - http://fragrantvanillacake.blogspot.com/
i tried a new smoothie recipe from the boutenko's book but it came out really nasty - i think my tangerine was sour and I don't like to add any kind of sweetener to my smoothies so I just started over with kale/peach/banana.

appifanie, nice to see you around again. :)
I wonder what's up with that. Is it engineered for US power (110v)? or maybe are you trying to run it from a power converter in your cigarette lighter socket? I had issues with that in the past. The power converter that I have can be plugged in two ways. I can do the socket and get 100 watts or I can clip it right onto the battery (car running) and get 400 watts.

I love our language barrier :)
Cannot figure out how to attach an image (my brain hurts now) of the pumpkin smoothie I made last night. Have some shredded pumpkin leftover and may make another...though I wonder if it's really needed here; could potentially get the same result with a banana-based smoothie and pumpkin spices.
Mystic, that link. OMG that link. YUM.
