Recipe Testing, Popsicles, and Gardening
This morning I had the privilege of testing a reicpe for Dreena Burton's new cookbook Eat Drink and Be Vegan. These are the crepes with the celestial creme. This was hubby's special birthday breakfast. OK, it was embarassing how good the celestial cream was... I was totally licking the bowl, the spoon, anything, everything. I loved eat peace please's idea of using the celestial cream as a fruit dip. This stuff is amazing, very easy too. We can't wait for the new cook book Dreena!!!
Second this morning my daughter and I made popsicles. This idea also came from eat peace please and then was further prompted by Megan the Vegan. We used the same combo as Megan - strawberries, banana, soy milk and OJ (without the protein powder) Verdict: delicious, my daughter loved them too. We have been coming up with other delivious combinations all day... mango, chocolate pudding (you know that recipe with the tofu and the chocolate chips), raspberry, banana... the possibilities are endless.
I spent most of the day weeding my vegetable garden. I am tired now. This technically isn't food yet, but it will be soon! I can't wait to cook with fresh produce from my garden. Pictured here are tomatoes, chinese cabbage, pumpkins, zucchini, butternut squash and my herb garden.
