Vegan Bites: Mint Green Chocolate Cream


Looking at Rawlicious photography, I suspected this dessert would be stellar.

We halved the buckwheat groats and oats crust, to keep the flavour mild. Amazing! Good crunch.


For the filling we added a tablespoon of cashew butter and a little extra sap. Delish!
We were excited to add the mint topping; dreaming of peppermint patties.
As I spread it onto our (already yummy) two layer base, Ms. C mentioned it looked like poop.
Tasted like it too.
My sweet kids tried it anyways, before turning up their noses;)


It photographs well.
I suggest skipping the green poopy layer for a delicious dessert!

Hugin's Lantern Puppet Show


Our morning began with a puppet show about a little gnome named Hugin and wildlife preparing for the long winter ahead. Hugins Lantern comes from my favourite Waldorf Seasonal Tales, 'Tell Me a Story".


Holiday Train

 

It was a long wait for our city's turn to celebrate the Holiday Train,
We set off down to the tracks to find empty bleachers, that were packed full within an hour.

Train's a Comin'

During Open Activity, I chanced upon this scene with Ms. C seated in the center.
She somehow sensed I was off on a search for my camera and subsequently disappeared!

Vegan Bites: Coconut Cashew Bars


With some revisions, we customized this delish dessert, including turning it into breakfast!

We added 2 tablespoons of cashew butter to the base, to help form more solid bars. We also used our Avocado Carob Icing, making it sticky, messy and smooth on top!

Math Monday: Birchbark Chain


With some beauty birch bark stumps, courtesy of Grandpa, we went to work peeling, slicing and linking into chains.
