Polly and her Pack

This week we were joined by Polly and her pack from the Wheeling It blog. Polly is an energetic dog who would love to play with Curtis. She’s also very smart and understands that Curtie’s old and not interested in romping around so she gives him his space.


Last night Polly let Curtie come into her giant rig where we all hid out from some pretty wild winds.

Dinner Last Night:
I made my old reliable (veggie soba noodles) and Nina made a delicious spaghetti squash in coconut cream and her famous vegan chocolate mouse. If we’re lucky maybe she’ll share some recipes.

    Awwww…love the pics!

    The chocolate avocado pudding I make is from this site:
    I use half the honey, but otherwise the recipe is identical. Super easy and super rich. Everyone who has tried it, loves it.

    For the butternut squash….
    1 large butternut squash, chopped into 1/2 inch cubes
    1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
    1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
    1 can coconut milk
    1-2 cups veggie broth
    1/2 tsp cumin seeds
    1/2 tsp dried chili (or to taste)
    Juice from 1 lime
    1 tsp Thai Fish sauce (omit if vegan)
    1tsp chilli paste (optional)
    1 can coconut milk
    1-2 cups veggie broth

    1/ Heat 1 tbsp coconut oil in a large wok.
    2/ Add ginger, garlic, cumin and chilli and fry for a few mins to infuse the oil.
    3/ Add chopped butternut squash and stir fry for another min.
    4/ Pour in coconut milk and add broth until squash is just covered. Add lime juice and fish sauce. You can also add some chilli paste if you like here.
    5/ Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer on low for 40 mins until squash us soft.
    6/ Raise heat back to boil to boil off liquid and thicken the sauce. I typically boil for around 10 mins while stirring to make sure it doesn’t burn.

    That’s it!!

    When I saw your Raw Vegan Brownie recipe, it reminded me of Nina’s Mousse which is why I love the brownie topping (which I just made the brownie last night). So glad she shared the mousse with you.

    I bought sobo noodles for this recipe but never Pinned it!! Thanks for the reminder:)

    Have an awesome time with Paul and Nina!! How sweet of Polly to be so understanding of Curtis:)
