Happy Friday! Finally! I’m looking forward to fun and relaxing this weekend celebrating two family birthdays and making some great raw eats. Last night I went lazy and simple for dinner after another long and exhausting day at work whipping up one of my favorite raw soups in the Vita-Mix, Gena’s Red Pepper and Hemp Soup.
And paired it with baked acorn squash halves that I just drizzled a little coconut oil into and sprinkled with pumpkin pie seasoning.
Another casual and quick fall dinner, but the acorn squash was almost like a pumpkin pie or warm dessert and made the kitchen smell wonderful.
Gena’s soup is one of my favorites because it has a wonderful pepper flavor and kick complimenting the hemp seeds nicely and I almost always have the ingredients to throw it together since my freezer is always stocked with 5 lb. bags of hemp seeds.
Today was another draining day at work, but knowing I’d be coming home to a new toy made it better.
After over two great years with my iPhone 3GS, I upgraded to the iPhone 4S. Look at the difference in the screens – whoa! After about 30 minutes of backing up the old phone, activating and transferring to the new phone, I was ready to tinker and be amazed at how much faster apps are running on the 4S.
Oh the fun hubby and I have been having with Siri and sending text messages by voice, using FaceTime, and just amazed with the camera quality. Since we needed to head out to grab new cases for our phones, we grabbed dinner out too. :-) And ended up at Il Fornaio again for another fabulous vegan pizza. Great opportunity to snap food pics with the new iPhone camera and I was just amazed, it did better than my 4-year-old Canon point-and-shoot!
Fabulous detail for a cell phone camera, guess I don’t need to carry my point-and-shoot anymore.
I had another tech toy waiting for me when I got home, an HP TouchPad I’m setting up as a birthday gift for my mom.
It’s a pretty slick device too, I know she’ll dig it for accessing her calendar, email, shopping lists, etc. But after working with computers all day at work and tech gadgets at home, I’m wiped! :-)
