2 Tablespoons ground flax and 6 Tablespoons water, let it sit for 15 minutes and VIOLA! egg substitute.
I also made crab cakes with that idea, but didn’t snap a photo of those before they were devoured.

Recipe for crab/tuna cakes that your man will eat:

Egg Substitute: 2 Tablespoons ground flax and 6 Tablespoons water, let it sit for 15 minutes

Meanwhile put 4 mini sweet peppers and onion (1/4-1/2 cup) in Nutribullet, food processor, or whatever.

Add spices to egg mixture such as cracked pepper, pinch o’ salt, ground mustard, rosemary, and a bit of buffalo sauce for a kick.
Take either 2 8 oz. packages of crab, or one package and tuna, or two tuna cans, etc.. mix those in the bowl with the egg mixture and spices, add the pulsed onion and sweet pepper as well.
Pulse almonds and hemp seeds to a powder and put those in the mixture as well. Form into little cakes and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Use coconut oil in a pan and cook to brown on both sides.

ANTI-CANDIDA YUMMY FOOD!! wahooo!!!

Autumn Breath

This cool-aired, sun-filled season has arrived.
Today is my day off and woah have I gotten stuff done!
The day began with rosemary bread topped with Caribbean seasoned egg with black bean and watercress leaves.
Mi Amor biked me to work on his way to school.
Yes, I did have to go into work on my day off at 7 a.m. for a mandatory process excellence meeting that lasted an hour. Surprisingly enough, it was a fast hour that found me excited about the potential changes in the next few months.

And so, with my morning beginning that way, I fled the scene to the farmers market, where I always feel at home and like to begin my day.
With much success I biked home to wash them up and re-make the yogurt that sadly failed last night while I was away at work…
After an hour of being home I was off to do some errands..one of which was to visit Jared’s Jewelers where I have two lovely friends, who became  such because of Mi Amor buying my engagement ring from there. Just wonderful ladies who’ve made every visit marvelous.
They were indeed SUPER excited to see me and I told them that I was in to get my engagement and wedding band soldered together. Well, in the beginning examination process (which luckily I was still in the store chatting and enjoying trying on rings worth more than my life insurance policy) they found that the diamond was a bit tilted and that they would have to get a new head to hold it in. They assured me it happens at least once to every woman and that I should hopefully have it back by Saturday…with sadness and yet grateful that I didn’t lose my diamond, I left my ring with them…
Feeling naked without my proud sign of marriage, I continued my errands. Finally, back at the house I am attempting for the FIRST TIME EVER to make cheese….dun dun dun!!!

Autumn is such an accomplishing season, I feel. Its like the weather that gets your brain going.
Or for me, it gets my oven going!
Yesterday I made potato chowder, rosemary bread, granola bar muffins, attempted my yogurt, and jalapeno poppers!
Today, along with some good snackin’ I’m holding myself back from staying in the kitchen all day {like I would prefer} and be more productive with things that need to get done…
like blogging…
heehee
six more hours until he arrives home…looks like I’ll be keeping busy to keep my eyes off the clock!

Market Fresh Blessings

Biked to the farmers market with Rizo today, I only bought $6 worth of fruit and veg, and ended up with the ability to make (as seen in picture above) salsa, and currently on the verge of dehydrating bananas, kiwi, and yellow squash. We are planning a chinese night for dinner, so Sonrisa & her man better prepare themselves for pictures!

We bought a vacuum at Target!  Isn’t it beautiful!?

Rizo mentioned today how wonderful of a life we would have if this continued; making fresh food, being super creative, crafty, and working out all the time. We have a pretty easy life.

St. Mary’s called me today!!! I have a  job!!! Beautiful.

God’s blessings still shower even through my broken crevices.

Mediterranean Bedsheets

Yesterday my room was completed.
I’m sure it’ll change a little, here and there, but for the most part.

Sonrisa and her man, making yummies!

Our Mediterranean style food ❤ delish!

My room from the doorway (yes, I have a door in my room, it goes to a cement porch that I use for my herbs!)

My mommy made my quilt! It’s called {trip around the world}
Fits my style perfect, don’t ya think!?

Those curtains are to my closet-it has shelves and is WONDERFUL…and somehow I have a lot of clothes and need all of the space AND my dresser..goodwill trip? yes.

I am doing kitchen stuff today–lots of washing dishes!

I’m going to another interview today, St. Mary’s again!

Apparently, another lady was told about me and wants to introduce me to ‘inpatient’ pharmacy work, to see if I’d be interested in a full-time position there!

His blessings are an ever-sprinkling downpour.
