Time to play with the food before preparing it!
I got out various kinds of paper I have- some watercolor, some handmade (not by me). I used the ends of the beets to pretty much stamp on the paper, used the edge of the beet to make little marks, and the "tail" of the beet to pretty much draw like a crayon. Here's the paper now...
I may use it to make some envelopes for mail art. So, some of you may see this in your mailbox. I apologize in advance if it stains your hands or other mail!
After playing around, I made a medley of purple. Grated and sliced beets marinated three ways and a little radicchio for some variation.
Dessert was awesome tonight!
These are from Raw Food Kitchen too. I really like Dunja Gulin's book. These may have been one of the things that made me buy it!
They are called "apricot cheesecake cupcakes". Like everything raw I have made, they are nothing like cheesecake or cupcakes, but they are DELICIOUS!
The flavor reminds me of some Christmas cookie doughs.
The book says to use a cupcake tin and line the bottom with cling wrap, but I used our ravioli maker instead. It has the perfect shape and size for these, and the cups are shallow so it was easy to pop them right off.
I even got out the cake decorating stuff and piped on the "cheesecake"! I don't think I've used those in five years. See, there is a reason I keep all this stuff!
I did eat some other stuff today, but not really photo worthy! And I never think pictures of kale smoothies look very appetizing...better just to drink it and get on with the day!
