i am truly, beyond words...excited! have you ever received the best news...and just felt like you were walking on sunshine??? last week i received an email from one of the most beautiful human beings i know...heathy...letting me know that she was coming for a visit...well! i was on cloud 9...totally and utterly out of this world happy...and today, the cherry on top of the cake, i received an email from another beautiful human being, kelli...telling me she would be driving to toronto the same weekend heathy will be here.
and again i feel so blessed.
july 10, 2010 we will be having a party (not sure of the time, but am thinking afternoon for as long as people would like to hang out)...a very sweet party...raw vegan/vegan dessert and finger foody potluck party...in a very beautiful and serene environment...my backyard...
please let me know if you're interested in joining us...email me at email@example.com...
let's rewind to friday...i had a very special guest...another beautiful and spectacular human being...camille...we did a bit of shopping for ingredients and we made sweet gratitude's tiramisu...and it was epic...
camille surprised me with such a fabulous gift, a glassdharma straw...how lucky am i? i think i may have done a bit of a happy dance...who wouldn't? i had been looking high and low for one of these babies...
(this smoothie was my dinner tonight, one banana, 1/4 cup frozen raspberries, 1/4 cup of berry mix (black raspberries, bloobs, blackberries), 5 frozen strawberries, 1 cup of water, 10 cherries)
the most brilliant part of friday was getting to hang out again with such a beautiful soul...camille is one of the sweetest, most gracious human beings i have ever had the pleasure of knowing...and i am honestly, so honoured to call her my friend. she's beautiful. hands down!
we also made some pretty tasty crackers...i threw a bunch of ingredients into the food processor...with camille's help...this is what we ended up with:
sesame flax crackers
1 celery stalk
2 small carrots
2 cups of soaked sunflower seeds
1/4 hazelnut flour (optional, i just had extra in the fridge and needed to use it)
1/4 cup of parsley
5 basil leaves
1 garlic clove
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup of sesame seeds
1 tsp himalayan crystal salt
1 cup of ground golden flax
1/2 cup water (use as needed)
throw everything except flax into food processor...process until a batter is formed. add flax. process until well combined...spread on paraflex sheet. spread it as thinly as you want. place in dehydrator for 20 hours at 104 degrees...i like a more crispy and dry cracker...if you prefer a moister cracker dehydrate for as long as you wish.
we also made some AMAZING kale chippies...
chipotle nacho cheeze kale chips
1 bunch of kale destemmed and chopped to your liking
1 orange bell pepper (i used 2 very tiny baby ones)
1 cup of soaked cashews
2 tbsps fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup of water
1/2 cup of nutritional yeast
1 tsp of chipotle powder
dash of himalayan crystal salt
throw all ingredients, except kale into a food processor or vitamix. blend or process very well. pour mixture over kale and massage well. place on paraflex sheets and dehydrate for 15 hours at 104 degrees...and enjoy. these chips are phenomenal...
and that was my fabulous friday...
and let's fast forward once again to today...mister postman surprised me with a super fantastic package...remember the fantastic giveaway i won over at bitt of raw...aimee was so kind to include some doggie biscuits for my sweet little guy...and he was a very happy puppy...thank you so much my sweet friend (another beautiful human being)...
life is just so beautiful, especially when you are surrounded with, and by so much beauty, earthbound angels...and there are some extremely kind and generous souls out there...and i am truly blessed to know many of them...
also, please don't forget about the csn stores $60 gift certificate giveaway...if you haven't entered...please do...
have a beautiful night my friends...wishing you all a very sweet week...
