What We Ate (while you were gone)Had my required weekly date with my artist self tonight- went to Cafe Gratitude ( if you're not looking to get full, they have some nice teas, salads, etc. And I personally like the atmosphere. It might be cheesy but so am I.) where I had a huge bowl of tea, a tasty salad and a cacao almond butter ball with cayenne (i love those!). And I took my paper, pencils and markers and drew and colored a picture the whole time. Got totally absorbed the way a kid does and just went with it. It was nice. :-) very .... Soothing .
Tonight for dinner: the last of the goose broth. ! Roasted butternut squash pureed with sauteed onions in the broth, butter and coconut oil, Indian spices again (we wanted a replay of the soup I made for the baby mama!), then chunks of roasted beet, and beet greens. No coconut milk which is what really made the other so creamy but oh well. I think it's still stellar (because of the broth. ;-). Feels good to be humming away in the kitchen with a fire in the hearth as more wind and rain rage outside.
Soak up that sun - ozone hole or no. Bring it back as kisses on your smiling cheeks.
Lying beside the sleepy-suckling babe as the simmering soup awaits my tongue and tummy downstairs.
