Have An Uplifting Little Weekend

Posted by on Nov 21, 2014 in Fashion & Popular Products, Life & Adventures | 0 comments

Happy Friday Turnips! What are your plans for this weekend? I’m going to Cheese Cake Factory for dinner and afterwords to see the opening night of the Nutcracker Ballet, Just kidding!!! I wish that was what I was doing, someday but not today. Life is going well for Chris and I, as we can see an end to this current semester. We may be flat out broke, but we have so much more the a lot of people in this wold. I also know that this time in our lives is just a season, and knowing that alone gives me hope and encouragement. I like to say “I’m on a journey with Jesus!” (My first book title???) I hope and pray that no matter what your current situation may be, good or bad that you have hope and encouragement. Have a uplifting little weekend and here are some fun links from around the web…

Stay Warm Buffalo

Posted by on Nov 20, 2014 in Health & Food | 0 comments

Chris text, texted? Anyway Chris sent me this picture today of Buffalo, New York; they had 73″ of snow in three days!!! I’m pretty sure I would not plan on going out for a while! This past summer my sister had told me how the Farmers Almanac said that the US was going to have a very cold winter with lots of snow, and you know what I think they were right. Here in Texas we have already had our first dusting of snow, kinda makes me wonder about what’s to come? Wherever you might be stay warm out there, and here’s a recipe that may help (vegans will have to make a few substitutions).

Favorite Thanksgiving Side dish

Posted by on Nov 18, 2014 in Uncategorized | 2 comments

What are some of your favorite side dishes for Thanksgiving? Hands down mine is mashed potatoes! Here is a recipe I like to use…

  • 12 medium potatoes (about 13 cups diced)
  • almond cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil or vegan butter substitute
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder or granulated onion
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  1. Peel and dice potatoes into large (about 1-inch) chunks.
  2. Place diced potatoes in a large steamer pan, cover, and bring to boil.
  3. Steam until potatoes are very tender (about 15 to 20 minutes).
  4. Meanwhile, rinse cashews in a colander under very hot water. Drain well.
  5. Place almond milk, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, onion and garlic powder in blender and blend until very, very smooth. This may take several minutes unless you have a powerful blender.
  6. When potatoes are tender, remove from heat, transfer potatoes to a mixing bowl, and add blender mixture. Do not allow potatoes to cool.
    (The amount of blender mixture needed will depend on how much potato you have. The amount given works well for 12 medium potatoes. If the potatoes are large, use fewer potatoes. If your potatoes are on the small side, use only part of the blender mixture.)
  7. Mash potatoes with a potato masher or gently mash with an an electric mixer. Add a small amount of hot water if necessary to achieve a soft mash potato consistency. Do not over-mix or potatoes will be gooey rather than fluffy.
  8. Season to taste.

Real Love…

Posted by on Nov 17, 2014 in Health & Food, Life & Adventures | 0 comments

Hey there Turnips, I hope you are having a good start to your week so far! I have sadly come the conclusion that I am allergic to quinoa. I started reacting funny to it this summer, and it has gotten to the point where I think it’s trying to put me in an early grave. I can’t believe that it has taken me this long to realize what was going on, that my body can’t process it correctly. I guess it’s back to rice for me, which is not a substitute for quinoa! Anyway, that’s my bummed out news. Oh and last week I gave you a link that said “real love is a choice” it was an article my sister sent me; it wasn’t working so here it is again.
