Today was another beautiful day in South Carolina…The trees on James Island are amazing—canopies over the streets. There is so much sun and also filtered light through the trees. We did a lot today–but not really much that was productive. (I mean, I did a few hours of work in the morning and randomly throughout the day…so I’m not falling behind, and I must emphasize this as a major perk of working online—I’m surely not complaining at all!).
We went to Earth Fare, which is a local health food store, and I bought a bunch of stuff so we could make some of my regular treats and maybe test some of them out on the kids too.
I know there is some inconclusive evidence that Sunfood is related to Monsanto, but I've only been able to order from them online in the past and I really love the quality of their products. The cacao nibs are so good---they're almost creamy tasting!
I haven't made this in a long time---it's not really a recipe, but for some reason the combination of ingredients is SO good. Gojis, raw cashews, and cacao nibs. yum!
We also made chocolate pudding...and Jena concocted this snack, with mint from her garden---it was awesome! (note: the thing on the bottom is a cracker...I would skip that part and just dip the strawberries!)
We made chocolate avocado pudding, and it was good, but I’m not crazy about the brand of cacao powder I bought—it’s just another piece of evidence that the recipe must be adjusted according to the variations in avocados and cacao flavors!
Chocolate avocado pudding with cacao nibs and mint.
I’m going to try really hard to write something productive and useful tomorrow!
I hope you are all having a great week including lots of sunshine and yummy food with your favorite people (that’s what life’s about, right?!).
