Food Stuff...

I found a cool recipe the other day, and adjusted it slightly...


Start to pop popcorn in the usual way, and when it begins to pop/sizzle add 1-2T Rapidura (or sugar), give it a little mix then wait for it to finish popping...add salt and serve- delicious!

Our's was even made with organic coconut oil (being stable at high heat), organic popcorn kernels, organic rapidura and organic sea salt...yummy and healthy, or sort of...but it doesn't matter- everyone loved it!

I'm trying to wean us off white flour, and had sort of just stopped buying it...then made my first wholemeal flour chocoalte cake- which was disgusting, so bought more white flour to make Princess's birthday cake...then used wheat-free flour instead, lol. I thought I could use up the bag in making playdough instead...but then decided last night to make pizza with half and half white/wholemeal was step is to ditch the white flour altogether.

I made afghans with wholemeal flour, and "iced" them with melted dairy-free dark chocolate- they are superb, but too "chocolatey" for Princess.

We've started growing some seeds in plastic containers after reading on this website. I am currently attempting to grow pumpkins, potatoes, onions, spring onions, radishes, beetroot, courgetttes, carrots, cucumbers, lettuce (well, they actually are growing!), tomatoes, parsley and coriander.
