LILLY'S 4th BIRTHDAY!!
Like any cat, she totally milked her special day by loafing around in the sun and doing tighty-tucks on the dining room table.
|What a spoiled girl.|
I did make some dishes this morning to last us for the next few days. One, was a repeat-Cucumber Dill Salad. A friend told me how delicious she thought it was, which made me crave it, so I whipped that up for lunch. The second dish was a newbie...
Sweet Potato Noodles with Jerusalem Artichoke Dressing (from Raw Food)
- 1 sweet potato
- 1 tbsp water
- 1 jerusalem artichoke (aka sunchokes), I had no idea what the hell these were, but they were easy to find in whole foods produce department. They look like big gingers.
- 1/4 cup walnuts
- 2 tbsp raisins
- 1/2 yellow or red bell pepper
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- pinch of salt
- chili flakes, to taste
Make sweet potato noodles by using a grater. Put the jerusalem artichoke in the food processor and process. Add the water, walnuts, raisins, and pepper. Pulse until smooth. Add lemon juice, salt and possibly more water to taste. Pour the dressing over the noodles. Garnish with chili flakes if you want some spice. I endorse this recipe-it was YUMMY!
Onto cycling to work out my tight ass muscles from a killer training yesterday with LA....
