Spring is coming...

Check Spelling

giving myself hope anyways! It is so dreary here through the end of winter. We finally had a nice sunny afternoon today , and when we rushed out to enjoy the sun we were greeted by all of the neighbours doing the same.

I have been making a lot of curries for the boys lately. Happily I recieved an addition to my kitchen... my new rock... a 15 pound thai granite mortar and pestle. I have found an excuse to use it daily for the past 3 weeks or so!

I dont know what I would do without spices! Like gold baby, like gold! After mastering my use of spices in cooked food, it has been a completely different challange while eating more raw foods.

A loooong gap between writing! And sadly this time I don't have juicy gossip to offer! Life is just busy I guess! Between homelearning and the day to day home life I just haven't had the energy to write anything! The weekends are full of errands, fun hikes, lots of cooking and the climbing gym these days. I am starting to feel quite a bit better thanks to adding more raw foods into my diet... it really appeals to the creative aspect of my personality. I always enjoy creating somthing in the kitchen.
I'll just add a pic of todays yumminess! Raw key lime pie
with frozen berries on top ( can't wait until berry season again!!)

Nothing like seeing your little guy gobble up some yummy goodness with a side of green juice!

Not shown on todays menu was raw cinnamon buns, and raw thai " stir fry" of marinated veg ( baby bok choy, red bell pepper, carrots, portabello mushroom and mung bean sprouts) with peanut sauce and cashews warmed in the dehydrator... yummy! I am the only one eating this way and have noticed wonderful results... like my nails growing in normally finally!( bad psoriasis from the painkillers after my biking crash! My nails look all pitted when my gut is bad) The kids and Papa partake when they want to, but mostly I cook them up somthing yummy. ( like a delicious lamb curry that I will surely sneak a bite of!)
Ill be back soon!
