After lunch was eaten and the grocery list was made we headed to get the shopping done. I decided to pick up some silken tofu because there was recipe for a Chocolate Mousse made with the tofu that I was eager to try. We got home put the grocery away and was just in time to have my afternoon snack.
I decided on the Chocolate Mousse and I enjoy it. I think next time I will put it threw the blender instead of mixing it up with a hand mixer. It was good and it will be a great thing to have when I am feeling a need for chocolate. I also found these beautiful golden raspberries at Whole Foods the other day. They were just so beautiful I couldn't resist. They were quite good but not quite as sweet as the red raspberries but a nice change.
Since I was continuing to empty out the refrigerator I had some left over butter beans so I made the delicious sandwich with butter beans fried and Swiss chard. Unfortunately I didn't have a nice baguette like I had the first time I tried it so I used a sprouted bread. It was still good since the flavor is so darn delicious but the bread wasn't quite as hardy and it was a mess since the bread did get mushy when I put the balsamic vinegar on. You have to have the vinegar it just makes the sandwich. It was still good and I just love this sandwich. I was browsing blog the other day and came across a bean burger made with butter beans that I definately am going to try next week.
I thought this summoned up how I felt at the end of the day. I ended my day with a seven mile walk with my neighbor, Denise. She was a trooper and made the whole seven miles. Go Denise!! Her space is quite slower than mine but I enjoyed the walk with her and tried to put away the fact that I wasn't going as fast as I wanted or it took 30 minutes longer than I would do it. It was a great thing for me. I reminded me that it isn't how fast you do it is just the fact that you did it! Thanks for the great lesson yesterday Denise!
