I finally got our wedding invitations ordered. It was not an easy breezy or enjoyable task (at least for me). I sent the proof to a couple of my well articulated friends who could help me write out the invitation as best as possible. That helped me big time and now they are being printed.
I watched a cute video of Mike in grade 3 today and it made me wonder if we met when we where little tikes would we still be best friends? Here we are old skool as kids, I have a brown tooth because my older brother pushed me down the stairs when I was 2 and my tooth was bruised brown until it fell out. Oh and I was
an aspiring dancer in dancing because my mom forced me. Mike‘s just a little cutie with a cool necklace.
Now were big tikes and we ARE best friends and we ARE getting married!! (unless he gets cold feet and runs away)
Here’s my quote of the day…..
One “wish” that turned into a “will” that has changed my path is my new found journey with raw food. I have so much love for raw food and how energetic and alive it makes me. So much that, this weekend, as we speak I am becoming a Raw Food Instructor through The Raw Food Foundation!
We’ve recently made these To do for wraps and stuffed mushrooms that I am going to make for my mom next week and see if I can’t convince her to add a bit more raw food to her diet!
Raw brocoli soup (not my favourite, but I know how good broccoli is for the body)
Date Nut Torte…
So good. I could eat the whole torte…
But I guess we need to share..hee hee… Notice the big bowl of angel hair pasta and marinara being mixed in the background?
Ahhh, best seat in the house..
This morning I took some of my new skills (ha, you don’t need skills it’s so easy!) and I made some:
ONE BITE BROWNIES
1 1/2 cups walnuts
14 medjool dates
1/2 cup cacao powder
1/4-1/2 tsp vanilla bean powder
Pinch of salt
Process walnuts until fine. Add remaining ingredients. Form into cubes on plate, roll in coconut if desired and refrigerate until firm.
Here is All you need!
Throw in the nuts..
add in the rest of your ingredients (and please ignore my half chipped nail polish still on from Marianne’s wedding.
I formed them into cubes and put them on a fancy new plate I got as a bridal shower gift… (throw them in the fridge for a bit)
mmm, these brownies are delicious!
Cool plate and scrumptious raw food……
And a really cute dog that lays on the couch while I take pictures of everything.
The face of an angel. How could I love a dog so much?
Ok, back to the classes all day tomorrow so beddie by for me. Thanks sooooo much for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend.
