The Day After

Today was a great day.  My husband and I went by church and set up the advent wreath - a tradition for about eight years now - and then to Whole Foods for a few necessities.

Mom came over for lunch.  We designed a sweater pattern she will knit for Miles for Christmas.  We watched a re-run of Glee and Dr.Oz.  It was nice to just hang out. Nicer to know I can still do that!

Too much sitting though, and I was itchy to do something.  What better than play in the kitchen!  After all, I do have those new toys to play with.  My creative juices began to flow.  So here is what happened.

I gathered the tools and ingredients.

Zuchinni. Carrot. Parsley. Artichoke. Quinoa. Mushrooms. Lemon. Braggs Sprinkles. Sea Salt. Olive Oil. Sun-dried Tomatoes.

And my new toys, AKA tools!

Cut and toss . . . 


And my most favorite - the spiralizer!!!!!

So to start, I used the spiralizer and made "spaghetti" out of the carrot and zuchinni.
 I think this is just so cool!
One piece of zuchinni spaghetti was at least 18 inches long!

 And then I  put them together in a bowl.

Next I used my cut and toss scissors and cut up the "spaghetti" into bite size pieces.

I added the mushrooms, parsley, artichoke, sun dried tomatoes and quinoa and tossed it all together.

Then added the juice from a lemon, salt, Braggs Sprinkles, and drizzled a bit of olive oil and tossed it all together.
 Now it was ready to eat!

I took this creation, and plated it on top of a bed of spinach, sliced a kiwi, and added some Fresh Cranberry Relish, to the plate, a free recipe from Whole Foods, that I made for Thanksgiving Dinner.
It was so pretty I had to take a picture!!

I added Chocolate Mousse, a great recipe from
Raw Food Made Easy by Jennifer Cornbleet, with Rasberries for dessert,

 a glass of Pinot Noir, and the pleasure of my husband's company,

 and the result was a delicious, delightful meal!

Yes, the day after, was a very nice day!

Very nice!
