big snow, warm food
we had our big snow yesterday and it was very exciting to see it fall and fall and fall... the children were all gleeful as the schools closed down and they had a wonderful snow day, even moe the yorkie, had lots of fun bounding in the fluff... coming in shaking off and begging to go back out again i can't tell you how i felt about the poor kitchen, sigh. well at least moe was a happy boy- thru & thru.
so, full of winter giddiness, i decided to make some pot pies raw food extraordinaire to keep warm and full and happy. here is the before:
i still had pie crust toppers to add to two bowls and i popped them in the dehydrator for another 2 hrs it looked like this finished:
and tasted divine! THIS is a comfort food, to be sure. the crust was buttery and flaky tho raw vegan, and the filling was creamy and tasty. oh yum! a perfect way to eat winter vegetables.
alas, i just put it together without measuring or writing anything down (i know, i know, baaad snowdrop!!) but i intend to make this again real soon- and this time with documentation because it really is too good to be missed.
this morning i saw the sun sparkling across the landscape and just for a moment i was in that dr zhivago scene where they wake up in that country place in mid winter. just beautiful!!!! well that photo looks colder than i remember feeling when i watched that movie!! :) i thought i remembered the sun shining ...
enough rambling. i need to get some stuff done here today else i will never get my book to you! have a wonderful happy and sparkly day everyone! xo snowdrop
