Weekend Round-Up & Raw Vegan Giveaway!
But before we get to the prize at stake I thought I would tell you a little bit about this past weekend! First up...one of the smoothies I forgot to post last week! It was delicious! It had Blackberries, Blueberries, Strawberries, Raspberries, Coconut Water, and Garden of Life Vanilla Organic Plant Protein. I just LOVE the color of this...don't you?
Sunday I cleaned some of the kitchen and frig. I concentrated on the stove and used one of the new products I got from Norwex and it worked really well. I did 2 loads of dishes and dried some laundry. I cleaned the dogs pens out and did some of their blankets.
I then took the Spaghetti Squash and used it in the base for the dish you will see in just a little bit and I cubed up the Kabocha Squash and used it as well. I sampled a bit of each and they were tasty! Below is the finished product. It's a Thai Curry Squash with peas and pine nuts.
Saturday we sold our Wildtree products at a regional winery. I'm thrilled because this winery doesn't use purifiers, clarifiers, or preservatives in their wine that tend to be fish or gelatin based! Next to the door they had this crazy looking guy and they were all decked out for Halloween. It made all sorts of weird noises and moved. They had him on an operating table and it was fun to watch the people come in and freak out when the sensor went off! It was a very windy day and driving home was a bit challenging at times because of the wicked wind!
Saturday night the dogs enjoyed snuggle time on the sofa. Paco liked that I let him use my pillow, too. He's doing well but his legs still have good days and bad days. He's a trooper, tho, because he still trucks around the house in his own special way. And of course he's still as cute as ever. Sunday night the dogs seemed to enjoy family time, too! We caught up on Grey's Anatomy and Reign which are two of the shows we enjoy during the week on Hulu.
Chocolate Raw Meal! It's vegan and RAW! New packaging and everything! Woot! I will choose a winner sometime tomorrow and announce the winner on Wednesday! Each weekend I will have a different giveaway, too, so stay tuned!

I love the color of the smoothie! I always love the bright reds and pinks in foods! I love seeing Paco's sweet face!ReplyDelete
I really liked the color on that one, too! Paco's so sweet - I wish he didn't have his issues but he's such a strong soul! He's a trooper that is for sure!Delete
Although I am not a vegetarian or a vegan, I really do enjoy your posts and seeing what you make. The hummus looked very good and such a great color!!! I never would have thought of roasting the pine nuts with the squash. Was the kabocha squash used in your soup? Thanks for sharing such great ideas. justwin4once at gmail dot comReplyDelete
All are welcome here! Thanks for visiting, reading, and commenting! Thanks so much for the feedback on the hummus and Thai inspired dish, too! Yes...I used the Kabocha Squash - cubed and the spaghetti squash I blended for the base so there are actually 2 types of squash in there!Delete
That smoothie is gorgeous! Ours looked similar this morning from a chunk of raw beet I threw in, so fun! And thank you for the giveaway opportunity, no know I am a huge GoL fan! And I need to find that hummus at TJ's!ReplyDelete
Thanks! Can't wait to see your smoothie! How far is TJ's from you?Delete
Wow, you had a busy weekend! That soup sounds wonderful and your little Paco is so adorable. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks so much! I had it for dinner with Lentils and Wild Rice. Today I think I will have the rest for lunch.Delete
I had a beet hummus once when eating out, it was tasty but the store made it too salty! I first heard of it from a parenting magazine, where they blended beets to make "Princess Hummus" XDReplyDelete
That's a neat idea for kids - I didn't even think about that! I'm not a fan of salty things that is for sure!Delete
I wouldn't know if I would be amused or horrified to see that guy at Halloween. LOL!!!ReplyDelete
LOL - very true!Delete
I love the color of the smoothie and the hummus! I love beets. I juice them regularly and have used them in a variety of ferments that I make.ReplyDelete
I'm trying to incorporate more and more of them! I made some of this hummus for my mom. She LOVES beets but my dad isn't a fan. My dad loves hummus but my mom as hot and cold on it. I figured if I made a flavor she really liked she might like hummus more. She tried it and liked it! YAY!Delete
Beet hummus is so good! If you're ever in the DC area definitely try Soupergirl's beet hummus. It's a lovely bright purple, even more colorful than TJ's, and everything they sell is vegan!ReplyDelete
I will have to google Soupergirl sounds awesome! Thanks for letting me know about it!Delete
The smoothie looks great and sounds delicious. ♥ My sister from Canada is visiting and we were just talking about beet hummus, I hadn't seen it here in the US.....so pretty!ReplyDelete
Do you have a Trader Joe's by you??? That's where I found it :)Delete
Yum that beet hummus looks and sounds delicious! As does your smoothie!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much! I LOVE your blog, btw! Thanks for visiting mine as well :)Delete
I cant believe how much that Hummus looks like Ice Cream. Paco is so adorable. You are so lucky.ReplyDelete
I have been thinking about doing a Cashew Ice Cream and using some Beet Liquid for the coloring! What do you think!?!Delete
Wow! That balsamic beet hummus is sooooo pretty!! Almost too pretty to eat. Almost ;pReplyDelete
Love the halloween decorations! Must have been so fun being set up next to them.
Paco is so cute!!! Cuddling up on the couch with furkids is the best =)
I've been craving more of the beet hummus actually! LOL Might have to make more this weekend!Delete
Due to the high antioxidant benefits of berries I try to consume some type of organic berrry in season each day. Fortunately, I am able to find frozen organic berries at my local natural foods store and they are great for smoothies. Thanks for sharing with us at the Healthy Happy Green and Natural Party Blog Hop. I appreciate it! I'm pinning and sharing.
