First we stopped off at Healthy Home Market for some bulk items. And for this root beer. I am seriously addicted to Uncle Scott's, although it doesn't exactly fit into The Martha Challenge.
Before we left for our
Almost Whole Grain Bread
1 cup +1/4 cup bread flour
2 cups spelt flour
2 TBSP vital wheat gluten
2 TSP instant yeast
1 TBSP Sunflower Seeds
1 TSP sugar
1 TSP salt
1 flax egg
1 cup warm water
2 TBSP oil
In bread maker pan, pour warm water and stir in sugar. Sprinkle yeast on top and let sit 5 minutes to activate.
In small bowl, mix together flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax meal mixed with 3 tbsp water) and let sit about 5 minutes to firm
In medium bowl whisk together flours, wheat gluten, sunflower seeds, sugar and salt. (You can skip this step since we are using a bread maker here...I'm just weird and like to do it anyway).
Measure oil into bread pan and pour flour mixture in. Set your breadmaker to normal setting for 1.5 lb loaf and light crust.
The result is the most amazing sandwich bread I have ever made! It was light and fluffy but with a wonderful crumb and delicious flavor! I love this bread so much!
The New Not-tella
1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup Organic Apple Sauce (no sugar added)
1/2 cup Agave
1 heaping TBSP Peanut Butter (all natural, only peanuts)
water, only if needed
In food processor, combine all ingredients and process until smooth. Add water 1 tbsp at a time until it reaches desired consistency. Refrigerate.

I had meetings all morning in Statesville after my workout with Marsha today, so I showered at the gym and busied with work. By the time I made it home after 1pm, I was famished. So I whipped together this ultra-large salad that totally hit the spot.
Well I am off to make a delicious dessert for a BBQ I am attending tomorrow...so stay tuned for another Memorial Day Recipe! Happy Friday!
