Cucumber Delight

It was so nice to get up off the bed to make lunch…my back is still in pain, but I had to use the foods in the refrigerator.

I had the Lettuce, Green Beans, and Cucumbers that needed to be used or else!!!!

But first, Mike’s son was showing off his latest Christmas gift D.J. Hero… and after he figured out how to play it he let me play a game. I’ve always wanted to try the Guitar Hero. And since the same people make these games, I got my chance, and it was fun. A little crazy, but I guess that’s how it works. It challenges you to be very hand eye coordinated.!

I was really hungry, so before anything, I found the Berries and had some Blueberries and Raspberries.

Afterwards, I headed to the kitchen to look for the Green Beans. I blanched half of the bag and mixed it with Olive Oil, Paprika, Garlic Powder. I was going to cut some Almonds and sprinkle them on top… but didn’t get the chance.
Then I cut into the Cucumbers and scooped out the middle and made my Cucumber Delight. And realized, the Green Mix is getting old so I made another Green Garden Salad.

Green Beans:

1Tsp Olive Oil
Pinch of Paprika
Pinch of Garlic Powder

Cucumber Delight:
2 Cucumbers
1Cup Carrots
1Cup Celery
1/2Cup Sweet Peas
1Tbls Olive Oil
2Tbls Dill Weed

Green Garden Salad:
Baby Greens
1 Orange Bell Pepper
1 Avocado
3 Green Onions
2 Carrots
2 Celery
1 Tomato
5 Mushrooms

I’ve been using a store bought Raspberry & Vinegar Dressing from Ken’s.
Now it’s back on the bed with the heating pad… my back is throbbing:(

Looking Down On Golden

Lariat Trail In Golden, CO

Driving Up Lariat Trail

Started the day brisk… with some errands to run before we headed over to my brothers place. But first, we went to downtown Golden, and stopped into Starbucks for my Pumpkin Spiced Iced Coffee with Soy. From there we headed to Lariat Trail, which is part of my old stomping grounds. We used to drive up the mountain, overlooking the City of Golden and party, neck, etc. as teenagers. It was beautiful again to see it.!

After a quick stroll down memory lane, we headed to Steve’s for Thanksgiving Dinner which was schedualed for 1pm. I still had to make my Sweet Potatoe Delight and Cucumber Delight and a Green Salad meal additions. My sister in law was very encouraging about me making my raw food additions to the meal. She understands the decision to go raw, because her sister is a vegan and her sister in law is also a vegan.

Sweet Potatoe Delight:
4Sweet Potatoes
1Green Apple
2Tbls Unsweetened Honey
1/4CupsOrganic Raisins
1/4CupsOrganic Cranberrys

Chop Sweet Potatoes, Apple and sprinkle Raisins, Cranberrys, Honey over dish and pour Orange Juice over the entire thing and place in oven at 350 degrees for an hour or until Potatoes are tender.

Cucumber Delight:
4Green Onions
1/4Tspn Dill Weed
1/2Cup Olive Oil
Celtic Salt

Peel Cucumbers, Cut Cucmbers in half, then cut in half again and scoop out the insides. Place the insides of Cucumber in bowl with chopped up Celery, Green Onions, Carrots, Dill Weed and Oil. Mix and spoon into the Cucumber tubs and refrigerate before serving.

Green Salad:
Mixed Greens
Red & Orange Bell Peppers
Green Onions
Dried Cranberrys

So once I finished my new additions to the Thanksgiving Day Meal, we sat down to eat, because I was running tight on time, and so, I didn’t have a chance to take my Barley Max, or Drink my Carrot Juice.
I had to try a slice of Turkey, scoop of Mashed Potatoes, Stuffing along with my delights. Unfortunately, my Sweet Potatoe Delight wasn’t ready in time, so we snacked on that later.! And of course for dessert, we had a slice of Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Pie with Homemade Whipped Cream. So sinful, I forced myself to go for a walk on the mesa, behind there house. I invited the kids and my sister in law for a walk and when we got back, nothing more was put into my mouth.. until the next day.
