Potato Chowder

A Dill Weed and Almond Milk mixture was simmered to be infused with VEGGIES. Oil was kept away. Chopped Potatoes, Onion, Carrot and Celery were cooked into the Almond Milk creaminess for hours. The greatness was seasoned with Garlic Powder, Sea Salt, Pepper and Corn Kernels. True texture, flavor and versatility was happily achieved today:)

CHEERS

Cheican Ⓥlorentizza

Nutcheese ‘alfredo’ was heated. Miyoko’s ‘mozz’ was added with sundried-tomato basil seasoning and Cayenne.

Cheican (faux chicken) was pan-fried and sliced. Flatbread pizza dough was sauced. Chopped Smart Bacon was added with sliced Spinach to cover. Tomato slices, Follow Your Heart slices, Mushroom, Cheican slices and lightly braised Broccoli completed this Pi.

In the desert valley soil, lives a fungus. This fungus spreads spores that people might breathe in. This is Valley Fever. I might have this or strep throat. We will see. The desert is a different beast, from what I am used to.

RIDE ON. COOK ON. PIC ON. LIVE ON. CHEERS.

TⓋatⓋiki Salad Wrap

Happy Sunday! Snow falls again, here, in Northern Illinois. A top secret mission was devised and completed in the form of a booze snow hike. I love snow, but I despise ice. And ice underneath fresh snow is ever slippery. Hulk legs do help, but out of the seven slips in 25 minutes, I fell to my knee once. This Illinois winter needs to be my last.
