Chocolate-Covered Meal Of The Day

Pin It!

But first, a recipe update:

I added 1/8 tsp of vanilla to the Raw Cashew-Vanilla Bars, which took the flavor to a new level.


Plus,  I wanted to show off the cute owl candle. When I was at Bryn Mawr (their mascot is the owl), we kinda went owl-overboard and bought everything owl-y we could find :).

Chocolate-Covered Meal of the Day

Kabocha was once again the star: Rich and creamy Pumpkin Pie Soup (used the Vita-Mix for this!!), toast with vegan butter,  steamed green beans, side salad, and sautéed mushrooms and peppers

I made a double batch of the sautéed peppers and mushrooms.

The leftovers became Red Pepper Magic Soup.


Then later, I joined some friends for dessert.

And by friends, I mean: Raw Gingerbread Men.

    Ah, the legendary Vita-Mix. They sound super cool and all, but no matter how I look at it, it’s still just a blender (albeit a superman blender). I’m too cheap to dish out $400+ for a blender… wouldn’t mind getting it for free though 😉

    That’s an adorable owl you have there :]

  5. Tanya says:

    Wow! I’ve read and seen ads about the VitaMix for years now…….and I’ve wanted one ever since. This is exciting….can’t wait for your giveaway!! How do you guys get these companies to do that? I’d love to be able to do giveaways too.


  6. YESSSS! A vita-mix giveaway!!!

    Your chocolate covered meal looks delicious!
