primal chicken curry, gwen's fries, kale chips & celebratory homemade icecream

an update from abbie's reading teacher:

Hi Lindsey,
I have some exciting news. . . Abbie is doing such a great job in my reading group and making great gains in reading, that we believe she does not need to be in tier 3 (the most intensive intervention) any longer.  Today she read a level D (end of kindergarten level) book with me.  I discussed her progress with the classroom teacher and the other reading specialists, and we decided that Abbie can move into a tier 2 group with children from her class at her same level on Monday.  I will let Abbie know about this change tomorrow.  I am sad that Abbie won't be in my group anymore, but am so excited that she is making progress!  Thanks to you and Chris for working with her at home and making so many changes that are helping her at school.


we had eaten all of the last batch of ice cream so of course, it was time to make some more!!!!

nutty strawberry chocolate ice cream

1 can trader joe's light coconut milk
3/4 c sucanat
1 T coconut oil (melted)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c almond butter
1/4 tsp xanthum gum
6-8 organic strawberries (i pureed them in my magic bullet...probably got about a cup of red)
mix all the above in a blender
4 T enjoy life semi-sweet mini chocolate chips (add when mixture goes into ice cream maker)
mix in your ice cream maker for 25 minutes.  transfer to another container and add it to the freezer.  

hollah my dollar and the tastebuds.  you only need a little of this stuff too by the's rich and creamy and your done in one scoop:)

didn't have tumeric or cauliflower so didn't use it.
also did not use much cayenne pepper, but will definitely use hot sauce on my plate next time!

followed recipe to a T.

added sesame seeds, course salt and a garlic seasoning blend to taste.
