Raw cocoa pudding

This tofu, cocoa and honey etc concoction was so delicious.  I made it last week and my 
first bowl was brilliant and I then had the rest a few days later with coconut milk 
and cashew butter and it was insane!

Blessed is He

“Hosanna!” was the word that began the most explosive 7 days in all of eternity. Never would there be a week, nor a word, that would so profoundly impact every life in recorded history.

~ Carol McLeod

"And the multitudes that went before Him, and that followed, cried saying 'Hosanna to the son of David.  Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest"
Matthew 21.9

Hosanna means 'Oh save now' or 'Please save' and HE HAS!! So that's why it is such a cry of adoration and praise! He has HOSANNA(ed) to the HIGHEST!  And at this special time of year, we say with all the voices of history, "Hosanna to our King."

Weekend breakfast

It was simply lovely to still be sitting in pajamas at 09h30, holding a bowl of fruit, nuts and seeds! Wayne bought me a new blender on Saturday, so it was a powerhouse smoothie as soon as we got home, with beets, kale, kelp,celery, grapes, ginger and apple. Really Delish!

Good therapy

A spontaneous walk on the beach as the sun was setting was such good therapy! We were all invigorated and went home in the dark, with sand between our toes and happy.

Chilli sauce

Wayne and I love chilli, and this recipe is super easy.

270g chillies, deseeded and chopped
1/2 can chopped tomato
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup white wine vinegar

Simmer all for about 15-20 minutes (I used the long chillies with thicker skin, if you use a thinner skinned one then reduce the cooking time).  Let cool for about 10 minutes.
Blend and place in sterilised jars while still warm.

It makes about 2-3 cups.

Green stuff

We picked 3 kgs of olives to place in brine from one of our trees 
(and it was not as fruitful as it should have been) 

I made Kale crisps for the first time... super easy and delicious!

A great read... sometimes a bit sad to think of how much the environment is changing but we cannot bury our heads in the sand.  With this kind of information, we can choose more wisely.
