Welcome To Detoxville

My mom and I are in the middle of a Detox Purification Program. We've created a barter system, I plan all of the menus and cook all allergen-free dishes and she supplies me with the cleansing supplements.

In the real world, outside of Detoxville, I've been put to the test. I've baked several batches of brownies for family and I recently visited a local chocolate store with loads of samples; none of which I even attempted to eat, as I distracted myself with the deliciously scented body lotions and facial cleansers!! This my fellow blog readers is HUGE for me! As I eat chocolate daily!

On my shopping/cooking days I find I don't have a lot of time to feed myself so I stop at our local natural foods market and pick up their Red Lentil Patties with a side of Cilantro Sauce. They are a perfect power snack. They also work beautifully as an appetizer or stack up well served with a spinach salad for a main dish. I've decided to replicate the little delicacies, let me know what you think!

Stay Away From Wildfires!!

We are finally settled and back home in Washington. Happily leaving the Wildfire Season behind us. We are looking forward to the crisp Autumn weather and leaves changing, rather than flames licking at our back door.

Moving Day
An orange glow slipped through our blinds and tip-toed around our boxes making itself cozy curled up near the windows. I opened our front door and the smoke barged right in.
If you ignored the heat & weird orange glow and you forgot to breath in for a was reminiscent of a beautiful foggy Autumn day.
That vision didn't last long! It was sweltering by this time and it was difficult to breathe even inside of our house. So I slammed the door, squealing like a live suckling pig being unearthed from the ash, until I reached Travis with the news.

This photo was taken from our balcony, the day we were loading up the truck!

Happy to be home near the Sound. Fresh air and proper cloud coverage.

So much has happened since my last post. I'm a year older now! This photo was taken on my birthday with my sweetie.
