I hope everyone had a good long weekend no matter what you do or don’t celebrate. I had a pretty relaxing weekend that was supposed to be way more productive then it actually was. I had wanted to get some beer started that I have been saying I was going to start for a few weeks now and to rack a small batch of ginger wine that has finally finished fermenting. Well that didn’t happen, but I did get a batch of sauerkraut started which takes all of maybe an hour, so I’m not sure what happened to the rest of my resolutions. Yes I do, it was a Dexter Netflix marathon. Wow what a horrible, horrible ending. I won’t say anything more about it in case you haven’ seen it, but it was not the ending I had hoped for.
I was recently at a raw food restaurant in Belmont Village in Kitchener called Rawlicious and had some amazing quesadillas. I made my own for dinner this evening, and although they were vegan, the tortilla shells were not raw, nor was the salsa. For the first time I made my own tortilla shells and WOW what a difference! If you haven’t had all corn flour tortillas you need to try them! As you can see from the above photo, they were not a great texture and looked rather horrible, but they tasted amazing. I filled them with a raw almond nut cheese and raw nut loaf patty from the Rawlicious cookbook (the restaurant sells their own cookbook), and spinach and salsa (made by me last Summer. I forgot how much heat it had, it made my nose run) and avocado. There were tons of nuts in there so it wasn’t exactly a low fat meal, but hey, it’s the long weekend. Which is another reason to enjoy a few bottles of my favourite beer, Creemore lager.
I hope you all enjoyed your long weekend!
