Boom! There goes February :o

What a month..... busy busy busy - so much to catch you all up on, oh where to start.

Bit of a diversion tonight though - cooking!  My other passion, where I cook beautiful food from scratch with devine ingrediants.

Tonights dinner started when I thought to myself that a rice salad could do the trick.  I looked up a few recipes, took ideas from one and a few other ideas from another and then made it all mine!
I roasted some pumpkin in my all time fav coconut oil - what a magical ingredient.  Then I popped some brown rice on to cook and toasted some cashews, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds.  Then I blended some olive oil, lemon juice, a whole bulb of roasted garlic, medjool date, cumin, salt and pepper.  I mixed that through the rice and some left over quinoa.  While all this was happening I had roasted a piece of salmon with some soy sauce and sesame oil.
To put it all together I mixed some finally shredded spinach with the rice.  Scattered some pumpkin in the bowl with the salmon and mixed nuts and seeds.  I guess I could have topped it with a creamy sauce but it was fine just as it was.   It was a beautiful way to finish my day and best of all I don't have to clean up my mess.... I have a wonderful MOTH that does that :)
