Hosting a Superbowl party could have presented a challenge to our resolve, but together we came up with a plan to have a lettuce wrap extravaganza. There were six varieties to choose from... each unique, each delicious.
My favorite because it was so deliciously weird was the raw vegan pecan with fresh chopped salsa. You should try it.
|I used pecans instead of walnuts and did not make the cashew sauce.|
|Pinterest is my friend. I actually make stuff I find on that crazy site. It's like the best magazine without the ads or monthly fees. Good stuff.|
We also made cashew chicken, taco meat with ground turkey, and mini turkey sliders with tons of veggies which is a Chad original recipe. Regan made some delicious chicken salad to stuff in some lettuce. Angela brought some couscous with veggies. Delish!
I know I'm bragging, but our food was tasty and guilt-free. One person who I won't name (Alex) stopped by just to have some food because he knew it would be good. That's a pretty good compliment!
Let me tell you about one more fun thing you should try that is completely unrelated to food. Many of you have heard of the band Gungor, but maybe some of you haven't. If you aren't much of a risk taker in your musical tastes, try out their first album Beautiful Things. It is creative and will move you to worship. But, if you are up for a new sound, deep, thoughtful lyrics, to be challenged to think about creation and our place in the universe jump right on out to Ghosts Upon the Earth. The first song alone makes me blast the volume and continually hit repeat. If you want a taste of the album and to hear the hearts of these great artists, watch the video below. So good.
Have you tried something new lately? I would love to hear about it!
Anyone else a Gungor fan? What is your favorite song?
