The whole family is coming to my place for Christmas dinner this year so I figured I get started on some festive stuff! Something that really has nothing to do with Christmas, but I couldn’t bear to leave behind was this orange pecan hot chocolate!
Oh, lordie! More on this in a wee bit.
I don’t know about you guys, but apples make me burp! :D I’m glad I was in the gym by myself because the bouncing from running had me sounding like a beer guzzling frat boy!!

I was a little bit of a chatty Cathy on my way to the gym and wound up loosing 5 minutes out of my precious hour. Well, I didn’t loose them, but you know what I mean, right?!
Manon (who sent the raw chocolate pudding recipe home a few weeks ago) sent my hubby home from practice last night with a container of the above hummus and another filled with raw sprouted sunflower seed pate.
What a wonderful surprise! Damn the flash, though. Manon has recently started sprouting and I’m happy as a clam to be a test bunny. I’ll see if she wants to give up the recipes for the hummus and pate for you guys to try out. Read on to see how I used the sunflower seed pate at dinner time!
This was pretty good, but I think I skimped a bit too much when dishing out the powder. T’was a tad weak. I’ll use more next time I make it. So far, so good, though.
I stuck to the meal plan for the week and made the broccoli & cheddar quiche. I also made salads to go along with it. Caesar for the fam and mine was a mix of romaine, spinach, red & orange bella peppers and a tbsp of Manon’s raw sunflower seed pate as the dressing.
Heavenly! It’s been WAY too long since I’ve made a quiche. The only one who didn’t like it was DS which was no surprise to me. At least he tried it, though! Dessert, which I just finished up, was a slice of Caroline’s Vegan Pumpkin Bread with some pumpkin butter on it;
Candy confession time! Here’s what I ate throughout the day;
Well, it’s Biggest Loser time which = sign off time!
Bye for now!!
