We are just a few days away now from Earth Day and the Happy B’Earthday Revue. So much to do! There will not be much food prep in the next few days and it will be interesting to see what we do eat.
Breakfast: Oatmeal is easy and we love it. We had it cooked and topped with frozen strawberries which I let defrost before using. It went with Jasmine tea. There was talk of a little sore throat going around, so in addition to our daily vitamin D and B12, we took some vitamin C and Zinc.
Daily Green Juice: Kale, Collards, Celery Carrots, Lemon, Lime
The fun begins as we rehearse and prepare our Swingin’ Gourmet’s program for the Happy B’Earthday Revue, and start putting together the packages for our silent auction:
Two $100 Gift Certificates from GoOrganicNYC. We’ve been customers of GoOrganicNYC for several months now and delighted with the produce. They have been keeping me juiced up – with kale, collards, celery and carrots.
I’ll be getting my hair done for the event at Sera Salon by my favorite hairstylist Evilina. Sera Salon is donating a manicure for our event.
We also have signed copies of Joel Fuhrman’s The End of Dieting; T. Colin Campbell’s Whole and Rip Esselstyn’s My Beef With Meat.
World Peas Snacks has donated a lovely gift basket for our auction. Come on – who doesn’t want World Peas?
One of the silent auction packages will include a free 1 year subscription ($120) value for Gaiam TV. I would love this with unlimited access to all of their yoga videos, films and documentaries.
Vaute Couture has generously donated a “Lucy Felt Pencil Skirt,” a $98 value in size small. This is a stunning item, made of 100% cruelty-free material (no wool).
The Catskill Animal Sanctuary is donating a one night stay in The Paulie Room at The Homestead ($145.00 value). “The Paulie Room is named after a rooster who ate lunch with us, begged for car rides, broke up arguments between pigs, and took his job as Peacemaker very seriously! It is a beautifully sunny room with three large windows, a queen bed, and antique furnishings and a shared bath.”
In tomorrow’s post I’ll write about the items in our gift bags for all the Happy B’Earthday Revue attendees. Have you purchased your tickets yet? Don’t miss it!
Dinner: There was still more cooked beans and millet and I wanted to experiment again with making burgers and buns. I added some different spices to the burger mix – cumin, chili powder, paprika and adjusted the bun recipe. The bun recipe is improving, still a work in progress. I could have spiced the burger even more. It’s a good base to play with. A kale salad went with it, tossed with creamy Balsamic Dressing.
Evening: Rooibos Almond Vanilla Tea
