Yesterday, my man turned 16 29. He celebrated by running a 10K road PR in 32:30, finishing second place overall at the Purity Moosic City Dairy Dash. Love you CD, but kind of glad you didn’t win the first place prize of a year’s supply of ice-cream again (he’s won this race twice in the past) as Purity Dairies makes nothing dairy free.
After our weekly Costco run, I came home to find this package in my mailbox:
Abbie from Foods that Fit (who just completed yet another 50K!!!!), was kind enough to send me some chia seeds after I told her I couldn’t find them at my Whole Foods. Abbie, I can’t wait to use these! Also included in the package were raw buckwheat groats, homemade dried apples, and raw apple cookies. (CD, I could totally make these if we had an Excalibur Dehyrdrator! ) Abbie, so very thoughtful of you – thanks for everything!
So, what does a dairy free wife make for her health food lovin hubby on his birthday? This:
I’d like to thank several fellow bloggers for their help with Chris’s birthday cake. I made VeggieGirl inspired blondies and served them on a bed of Abbie’s dried apple rings. Topping the blondie was a scoop of So Delicious coconut milk vanilla ice-cream, one raw apple cookie, and homemade Magical Shell…amazing!
I melted 6 ounces of dark chocolate chunks with 2 TBSP of coconut oil and 2 TBSP of almond oil on the stove-top. I then poured it into a glass jar and let it cool while I prepared our dessert plates. When I poured the sauce on the-ice cream, it hardened right away…I know, I know – That’s what she said. I used to love Magic Shell growing up, and I’m so excited to have discovered this recipe. Thanks Alisa!
All in all a great day, and I leave you with this:
