Raw cranberry chia pudding from Kristen's Raw.
Finally finished the last of my (fresh) cranberries. I still have two bags of frozen.
Half raw/half roasted salad for lunch.
Spinach, tomatoes, roasted parsnips and broccoli, white beans with tahini sauce. Huge, filling, and delightful.
Dinner was Nikki's absolutely delicious tahini-maple roasted Brussels sprouts. I also took her sweet potato side idea, but made spicy sweet potato fries instead of stuffed sweet potatoes.
The tahini does melt all kinda cheezly onto the sprouts. It was very tasty. If you've ever had the store-made dehydrated kale chips, the crunchy loveliness comes from a cashew sauce and the tahini here works in much the same way. So good. Thanks, Nikki.
The "toasted" part of this post(ed) is the growler G and I bought yesterday! We are bona fide! Here he is showing off the smooth pour.
We bought a Goose Island brew. Good stuff.
Speaking of alcohol, I finished my drink project (posted and hinted about here and here)! It is all infused, strained, and ready to be bottled up. Here's one bottle I gave to my friend the other night.
Ya! Orange bitters! I used the recipe in Make the Bread, Buy the Butter and am pretty pleased with the outcome. I sipped some straight, and my friend did a shot of it. He's a bartender so I trust his opinion on such things. It's a bit strong and...bitter but I think it'll be good dashed into other drinks. I'm excited and I hope my other giftees will like it. If any of you have ever tasted Fernet (Rose?), the taste is similiar but less thick.
Anyway, that concludes the post. Don't drink and drive.
