This post, however, will include some other things from the weekend. As well as some items from last week - when I was under the weather.
First off - this selfie I took. I'm trying to take some more of them because no one takes photos of me and I'm always behind the photo while taking pics of groups, events, travel, and food. I'm not very good at selfies but I'm trying!
The main reason for this one is to show off one of my new shirts I got this past weekend. Yup! I was able to go on a bit of a shopping spree for clothes, specifically. I don't often do that but I was PAST Due for some clothes! I've been pitching a lot of them but I will wear stuff until I literally am not able to any longer. That and so many more of the clothes I had are 3 sizes too big!
One of the items I scored at Sam's Club a little over a week ago was this 6 piece Mason Jar Set. I couldn't resist...it was calling to me! You get all 6 glass mugs with handles, lids, straws, and burlap holder as you see here - but - it also comes with 6 additional straws (photo below). These are heavy-duty reusable plastic straws.
Online this set is selling for $16.49, I think...but...for some reason I think I only paid $14 and some change for it. I REALLY Love the way it looks...so bright and fun! I can't wait to fill them with juices and smoothies! Here's a pic of the orange one up close! They are just too cute, aren't they!?
I made some home made raw vegan dressing and it turned out AWESOME!
And it only uses 3 ingredients! Here's a quick recipe for you!
2 Sweet Red Bell Peppers
1/4 C Lemon Juice
3 T Tahini
I had a large salad last night with the dressing on it. A few cups of various lettuces, shredded carrots, red cabbage, Green Peppers, Y.E.L.O. Tomatoes, and Hemp Seeds!
While I was eating it all I could think about was how flavorful it was and then I wondered if I could make a soup out of it. So I did.
After using more than half of it as a dressing I then made a soup by adding the following...
2 T Minced Sun Dried Tomatoes & Garlic
1/4 C Basil
I have to say I was totally impressed with this flavor, too!
The addition of the garlic REALLY pumped it up! The Sun Dried Tomatoes didn't hurt either. It makes me want to do more raw(ish) soups VERY soon!
