And to make this post a bit more interesting. I discovered how to make cheater kombucha 🙂
Take a can of zevia (any flavor will do! I made ‘apple pie’ kombucha with cream soda zevia and cinnamon!), pour it into a cup to let the fizzles go down, add a dash (tablespoon or so) of apple cider vinegar and your good to go!! You get the vinegary-ness from the acv, and the sweet, slightly fizzy, flavored part from the soda. If you need to add a bit of sweetener, go right ahead -but this costs wwwaaaayyyyyy less than bottled kombucha and the acv has a ton of benefits (even if its not quite the same as ‘real’ kombucha). And you can make any flavor you like!
Thats all for now!
A word, A phrase, An idea (a recipe)
will pitch a tent in my mind
and refuse to leave
A guest which outstays its welcome
I think to myself
this would make a good poem
this fragment of a line
and it will not leave me be
until it is permanent
in what context?
there is none.
of my thoughts
floating on a page
until at last they find a home.
shoes pounding the pavement in sync with the heartbeat of the earth
as I float round the river in my blue froot loop
we wash the live, rich creations of the world off in a sterile, plastic tub
isn’t poetry grand!
when no rhymes are required?
or even if they are?
floating on a page
until I build them a home
with nothing but a pen.
Cinnamon Sugar Plantains
Because some recipes are so simple, they would rather live with no context.
- 2 over ripe plantains
- coconut sugar
Preheat oven to 400. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Peel and slice your plantains into coin sized pieces 1/2 inch thick. Sprinkle with a little bit of coconut sugar and cinnamon and roast for 15 minutes. Take out of oven, flip, and sprinkle the other side with a little more cinnamon and sugar. Roast 5 more minutes, broiling at the end if you wish. Let cool before serving
Peanut Butter Chocolate Sauce
- 2 T. Peanut butter, flour or PB2
- splash of almond milk
- 3-4 drops chocolate stevia or 1 tsp cocoa powder plus sweetener of choice to taste
Mix it aaallll together, flavor to taste, and get dipping!!
