Portobello Pizza, Ceasar Salad, Ice Cream, Fruit & Jack Johnson

My Portobello Pizza

I poured a bit of lemon juice on the mushroom cap & topped with:
Tomato Sauce - sun-dried tomatoes, tomatoes, red pepper, olive oil, garlic, onion, fresh basil & oregano, jalapeno.
Arugula Walnut Pesto - arugula, walnuts, olive oil, basil, garlic, salt.
Toppings - cut up red pepper, green onions, pineapple and black olives
Pine Nut Sauce - pine nuts, water, bit of lemon juice and salt

It was really good, but to be honest I might go back to a reg pizza crust next time. (& by regular I do mean dehydrated : )

Ceasar Salad Dressing

1 c cashews &/or pine nuts
1/2 c olive oil

1/2 c water

3 garlic cloves

1 T dijon mustard

1/2 lemon - juiced
1 t nutritional yeast (opt)

1 t salt

1/2 t black pepper

dash cayenne

Cherrys picked from a tree on our street. My neighbour brought them for me for breakfast! : ) Yay!!

Lunch - a case of mangoes
Snack - a bowl of lychees

Dessert - Banana Chocolate Ice Cream - Frozen bananas put through juicer (with blank screen) & then mixed with raw chocolate powder, agave and some chopped dates.

Life is good. My painting is finished. I have the day off & there's lots of sunshine, good food & good music!! : )
p.s. Thanks Wayne for the Jack Johnson cd, am really enjoying it!

I think I am going to have to make some of that chocolate banana ice cream very very soon! I also enjoyed reading about and drooling over your cranberry scones and flower chocolates down below. It all looks divine! And I love the name of your blogsite:) Very clever ;) ;) ;)

Hi Audry, Shell.. Thanks, yes, it was all so delicious. The ice cream is amazing.. I made a big container of it to have lots ready in the freezer, great stuff to have on-hand.
& yes, try the cranberry scones sometime - I highly recommend them, they are really, really - almost too good!!
