Breakfast! We were reunited with an old friend.

no – wait – I have been dreaming about these – but no… for breakfast we had:

No! This has bacon – must be where I got confused – but it wasn’t what we had today.  First Breakfast was:

*Cue choir of angels singing*

Chobani + 5 tablespoons hemp hearts:

So awesome. Serious energy.

Okay, so… my mom has done this several times lately… shown up at my house with… an avocado.

Five minutes later? We’re eating guacamole! It happens so fast I cannot tell you what she does – although I know it all came from my kitchen.

A bowl to put it in.

A fork to mash it with.

Lemon juice. Sea Salt. Pepper.

Tabasco:

I left this photo unaltered, to show you that between my Beloved Old Lady Vitamix and my Jonathan Adler jar apothecary jar (which houses my protein powder, of all things!), there is the largest bottle of Tabasco one has ever seen. Jason loves it. This was a birthday gift.

Somehow I think that was all that went into the guacamole.

My mom makes The Best Guacamole. Ready For My Close – Up:

I made up a platter of veggies and created a different batch of my cashew dip.

I made it with what I had in the pantry. No almonds this time.

Vegan Cheesy Red Pepper Dip

1 1/2 cup raw cashews
1 1/2 cups roasted red peppers

3 tablespoons water
3 cloves garlic
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
3 leaves basil, chopped

Soak cashews in water overnight in fridge. Drain and add to processor with all ingredients. Blend to desired consistency.

*If you want cheese sauce, add 1/4 cup water to thin.

The veggies look so vibrant and healthy, don’t they?

…and that guac went fast! So did the cashew dip – I LOVE it. I want to put it in my wrap. A sandwich. It is so tasty.

questions:

#1) Do  you have a dish you make often, without a real recipe?

#2) Am I the only one around here obsessed with Jonathan Adler?

#3) Have you ever seen a Vitamix that old? sweet old lady… we’ve had many good years, and I know we’ll have many more…

** speaking of chobani…  Hillary is giving some away, y’all!! Go visit her awesome blog!
