Ginger Smoothies & Gourmet Dishes
For breakfast on our first day, my Auntie made us each this delicious and tangy smoothie. lovelovelove it :)
Ginger Fruit Smoothie
1 cup frozen berries
1/2 ripe banana
2 tsp minced ginger
1 tbs pure maple syrup
1) Blend, baby, blend!
2) Drink pink, be green ;)
Epicure seasonings made this beautiful to look at and beautiful to taste.
The Blind Monk, but I obvs wasn't having any of those ;) I dug into the house-made veggie burger, with a patty made of chickpeas & mushrooms. Doused in some Frank's Red Hot Sauce, this delicious dinner went down easy :) The patty was tender and crispy, and full of flavour. I ditched the top of the bun (to cut down on white bread) and used the lettuce and tomato as a top. Nom nom :D
Our final meal together <3 Butternut squash ravioli smothered in a veggie sauce made with onion, garlic, tomatoes, mushrooms, zucchini, salsa, tomato paste, various Epicure seasonings, and more.
On the side: Greek salad (sans feta), and vegan garlic bread, with herb & garlic Epicure :) Hands down, one of the best meals I've ever experienced <3
They say you can pick your friends, but you can't pick your family. But in truth...I don't think I could find any better family than the ones I'm blessed with :) I love them all, and feel so lucky to be a part of this family!
peace, love, food, family <3
