Our first stop was at Pure Food and Wine for a late lunch on their patio with Dhru and Ben. I'm a luck gal - I've had the fortune of eating at Pure a number of times now, but always in the cooler weather, so I haven't enjoyed the outdoor dining experience yet. It was a lovely, warm and sunny day so we were able to be out in light clothing.

I ordered my favourite, the S and M salad. Heaps of greens, avocado, dulse, and chunks of rosemary quackers (which are sold in their store).
Philip had the Taco Salad - I had a bite and it was super delish. The sour cream is incredible!
Philip had the Classic Ice Cream Sundae for dessert - I've had it before and it's amazing! I opted for a half pint of Oreo Ice Cream with a cookie.
I grabbed a Chocci Caramel Bar from One Lucky Duck to bring to the concert for a little snacky!
It was a great trip to the city! I'm already looking forward to the next one... in a few weeks!
Now, how bout a quick and easy dinner recipe?! I made Mexi Fajitas last week - while I don't make these too often, I thoroughly enjoy them. It was Philip's first time trying the raw version, and while he liked the flavor, he wasn't keen on the dish - why? After "baking" in the dehydrator for a few hours, the veggies were too "cooked" for his liking (a flashback from childhood). The is ridiculously easy. It only requires a bowl (I like to toss the veggies with my hands for even coating). I don't measure... but if you want measurements and more recipes, check out this post on a raw mexican class I taught a while back.
Veggies: Bell peppers, portobello mushies, zucchini, red onion - all thinly sliced.
Marinade: Chili powder, cumin, garlic, tamari, olive oil, and apple cider vinegar, cayenne
Gotta have guac and salsa with my fajitas! Seriously, this is the two second deal. Salsa: I diced up red and yellow tomatoes, added a pinch of salt, squirt of lemon juice, and fresh cilantro. Eeasy Guacamole: Mashed avocado with a squirt of lemon (prevents it from turning brown)... ummm yeah, that's it!
Dessert? I made my Strawberry Lime Mousse Cake (sans the crust) in a cute little heart shaped spring form pans! Topped with strawberry/cherry puree and freeze dried strawberries.
Keeping on a sweet note, Sarah made a moonie a few days ago! Check it out. I think it's super cute!
Lori made a Basil Vanilla Filled Fig Moonie Pie - yowsa! It's the most beautiful soft green colour.
Have a great week!
