Foodie Friday

Sweet and Savory

Recently I learned of a deliciously delectable dessert made with avodacos!
You can serve it to the skeptic's in your household that cringe at the very thought of anything 'healhty'. They won't know the difference and will be asking for more.
I pureed the avocado first...
...then added the in the rest (I also added a dash of cayenne for a little zip).
The recipe calls for 3-4 tablespoons of cocao, I used 4 for extra chocolately-ness (is that a word?).  I also only used 2 tablespoons of water for the consistency I wanted. 
The 'MR' - with raised eyebrow- liked it. 
I would definitely serve it at my next dinner party!

Now on to something savory...

Growing up I was introduced to brussel sprouts and they were never my fave.
Of late with trying to eat more 'green' I have rediscovered this tasty cruciferous
cancer fighting veggie.
Melt a tablespoon or so of grass fed butter along with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and a dash of salt and pepper...
...toss with split brussel sprouts and roast in the oven at 425˚ for 8 minutes or so. I tossed them a couple of times while they were roasting. They really are quite tasty.
Anything blooming at your house yet?

Project Monday

Getting ready for spring!

This was my back deck last year...I 'Waterlogued' the image.
Close up of the birdies last year. The female cardinal (not shown) perches herself at the transom of the bay window in the kitchen when the feeder is empty and sings to me. I'm really not crazy, she has done it a number of times.
I got a great deal on this table and 2 chairs from Ballards Outlet a few years back. The heat and the elements 'weathered' them more than I like. The bamboo director style chairs were a find from HomeGoods and I had custom  canvas covers in good outdoor fabric made.

Time to do something.
I bought Sherwin Williams 'Deckscapes' exterior deck stain #3001 Shagbark. 
It has a paint texture, not thin like stain.
All painted....really happy with the finish.

Next project is to do some repair on the deck and paint it too.
I 'think' I want to paint a design on the deck floor to look like a rug.

I'm ready to get some color out there.  Are you planning for spring?
