on my way home from work i stopped at the lcbo and grabbed myself two bottles of organic white wine (it was that kinda day)...and noooooooooo i will not drink them both tonight, maybe one? haha...not! i have a friend spending the weekend with me...so i thought i'd treat her to some yumminess...
we have many fun things planned...and i am totally looking forward to the girls'/dogs' weekend...tomorrow night i promised another lady i'd take her out for her birthday, we're going to do indian...hopefully they have a vegan dish for little old me...i love indian...LOVE LOVE LOVE it...saturday i'm gonna take her to good ol' port credit and perhaps we'll pop into raw aura...and sunday she's gonna leave me, but i have plans with john's mama and her hubby...
john's gone for the weekend...he left this morning with my almost father in law...and his baby brother...they went on a fishing trip...i already feel so lonely...so weird...i don't think i have been apart from him for the last three years...i ain't kidding peeps...i miss him terribly...shhh...don't tell him i told you...
i don't know what's up with me lately, i am just so exhausted. i can barely wake up in the morning...but i have to...i feel like a zombie...and i am having issues with my eyes...i'm finally getting glasses on monday...so it'll be easier on my eyesight, and i will finally be able to actually read more than one blog an hour...haha, it's pretty bad.
ok. food. i made some pretty yummy salads this week...i added some hummus (chickpeas, parsley, raw tahini, dash of cayenne, salt, garlic, lemon juice, water) and a fuji apple to my normal, kraut, avo and greens...
and...i also managed to finally make one of my favourite meals in the entire world...high raw vegan nori rolls...(raw nori sheets, fuji apple, cucumber, avo, and sprouted brown rice)...yum...
i also made a VERY yummy and crunchy cracker, it's raw, it's vegan and it's gluten free...
spinach buckwheat crunchies
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes, loosely packed
3 cups buckwheat flour*
5 cups organic baby spinach
1 apple, cored and roughly chopped
3 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp herbs de provence or herbs of your choice
*you can make buckwheat flour by soaking buckwheat, sprouting it, and degydrating it overnight at 104 degrees, running it through the food processor until it turns into flour.
process the olive oil, sun dried tomatoes, spinach, apple, lemon
juice, salt and herbs de provence until thoroughly mixed.
add the buckwheat flour and process again until a batter is formed.
divide the mixture in 2 and place on paraflexx sheets, on dehydrator trays.
spread the mixture evenly on paraflexx sheet. if mixture is too sticky you can wet the spatula to make things easier. you can either score the whole thing into 9
squares with a knife, or leave it as is and break it into pieces once it's ready, for a more rustic look.
dehydrate at 104 degrees for 4 hours and then remove the paraflexx sheets by
placing another dehydrator tray and mesh on top and invert so that
your original sheet of bread is upside down. that will allow you to
peel the paraflexx sheet off and continue to dehydrate the underside of
dehydrate for approx 18 hours more or until crackers feel crispy.
i had some for lunch today with hummus and some of ani phyo's baja cheeze...these cracks are so crispy and herby...i love them...can't believe i pulled them off...and without FLAX (my enemy)!!!!!
hope you are all having a lovely week. and i wish you all a fabulous weekend. hope the sun comes out to play...
sweet dreams my friends...have a beautiful night...
