Last night we had a fabulous dinner thanks to Noelle, who blogs at An Opera Singer in the Kitchen. Livy made Noelle's Rawlicious Kale Salad with Garbanzo Mash and some zucchini chips. Yum!! Liv left out the sesame seeds (because they are high in oxalates) and added some red pepper flakes. I never knew raw kale could taste SO good. =)
Of course, a scrumptious savory dinner calls for an equally exquisite dessert. Wubba wowed us with his Banana-berry Raw Ice Cream. This stuff is to-die-for yummy. It sent me down memory lane to the days when I worked in an ice cream parlor. We served special flavors of ice cream on occasion...my favorite was boysenberry. Wubba's raw ice cream came amazingly close to the flavor of that old fashioned treat.

I just have to share one more fun thing with you today. Misha often prepares the photos for our blog very late at night and leaves them on the jump drive for me when she heads out for college classes in the morning. When I opened today's photos I found this one
What a great sense of humor that girl has!! I was laughing all morning.
Hmm, think I'll head into the kitchen and see if there are any more ice cream monsters hanging around that I need to vanquish. ;-)
