This and that

I put one cup of vanilla almond milk, a frozen banana, 1 tablespoon of cacao, 1 tablespoon of honey and froze them in the freeze. Oh so good and my husband even wanted him one.
Its fun to think up healthy alternatives to thinks that are too many calories or they do funny things to you like binging. I looked on Spark recipes and they have lots of raw desserts.
I like using agave nectar for sweeteners or honey. Honey is my favorite. A neighbor brought us some fresh squash and zucchini and they were wonderful. I chopped up an onion put lots of spices and olive oil and cooked for about 20 minutes. You can't beat fresh food. Another neighbor brought us some tomatoes. We have been enjoying bacon and tomato sandwich's.
They are so good. We had a garden last year and we really enjoyed it. This year we just don't have time. We are building a little log cabin in the woods on our place and we will move into it when we are through. We are doing all the work so it will probably take a year or so. We are just enjoying doing it at our pace. I wanted a special door and we hunted high and low for someone to make it out of cypress. We found a man to do it. I wanted big heavy hinges and straps half-way of the door, I wanted a speak-easy opening at the top, lion head knocker and black clavets on the instead of the door. We found a beautiful lock set that goes with it. It looks like an old door to a castle. Well it will be our little log castle. The ceiling in the living room are vaulted and I found the perfect chandelier for it. It is so much fun hunting for unique things. And the best part is we will have it paid for when we get through. We are only doing it as we can pay for it.
