"I love swim lessons!"
Now that's a fast 180.
And I've been having more fun with my birthday presents.
I asked for a blender and a dehydrator for my birthday.
I linked to a site that compared the excalibur and this one called the
nesco. Raw food purists would say the excalibur is the only way to
go. But I went with this one due to the fact that the excalibur is
just too big for my kitchen and this is just a fraction of the cost,
while still drying just as efficiently.
I know some women would think I'm crazy to ask for such things as
But I'm in that kind of phase.
I made my first kale chips and as the raw cook books
warn, we couldn't stop eating them.
Sprinkled with olive oil, salt and garlic powder. Yum.
I made a batch with cayenne pepper for my husband too.
And I'm very excited about this lady's cookbook.
She's 70 years old. It wasn't just her age that impressed me,
but her amazing sounding recipes.
I tried the arugula/fennel salad for lunch and then just had to make
it again for some guests for dinner. It was THAT good. I added to
it, the chop chop salad. As the title hints, there was a lot of
chopping involved, but the sauce was to die for.
And everyone actually felt full. I told them they were my guinea
pigs. I'm really excited about these recipes!
I'm off with the kids on a trip to visit my parents
and Sea World.
Hopefully I'll have lots of pictures when I return!
