Beethoven’s Death Mask

Beethoven’s Death Mask

Today was a good day, food-wise :)

I blended together bananas, blackberries, raspberries, and a tad bit of açai pulp for a smoothie base.  I wound up mixing a few spoonfuls with a splash of almond milk and cinnamon.  This gave it a wonderful froyo consistency.  Garnished it with some raw nuts, fresh blackberries, and a squeeze of lime.  And I wound up with an açai bowl that was truly healthy without any added sweeteners or heavy granola! :)  I was a happy girl!

For dinner I threw together a random salad.  Spinach, hemp seeds, celery, and sunburst tomatoes (try snacking on these babies as is!  so sweet and yummy…discovered the amazingness of these from the lovely nina), 

As I was poking around our spice and condiment cabinet in the kitchen, I decided to try a little experiment instead of doing my usual go to oil/vinegar/lemon/salt/pepper combo for dressing.  I spooned a little bit of the Banana-Berry base I had in the freezer, popped it in our handy Magic Bullet (yes, this thing is amazing for blending up small batches of things such as dressing).  Then I proceeded to add a little bit of this and that, whatever seemed to come to mind as I was mixing the thing up.  I remember throwing in some lemon juice, pomegranate juice, olive oil, flax oil, red wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar, sweet paprika, cayenne, salt, and pepper.  I think I diluted it further with some water, but boy was that dressing yummy!  Perfect balance of sweet and sour, but full at the same time from the oils and the banana.  And the spices gave it a little kick…very subtle.  Just enough for it to be there without being overwhelming.  I guess it was a complicated recipe, but it was so yummy.

And now I’m eating a little bit more of the banana-berry mixture.  A different variation of the “froyo” from earlier, but just as good.

nom nom nom.  good, healthy food that is yummy always makes me smile at the end of the day.  I don’t have to go to bed feeling like I’m carrying a food baby.

Woke up way early today and drove to Alta Laguna Park in Laguna Beach, also known as “Top of the World”.
Toted my SLR with me and began experimenting.  Quite happy with the results.  I’m obviously playing around with light and rays a lot.  Still have not quite got the hang of knowing what aperture and shutter speed is needed for the desired effect each photo to have…but that takes way more practice than I ever get.  Learned a lot today, though, from the couple hours of walking around and shooting!
The full set is on flickr.
