#60 - Angels, Demons, and Heavenly Cream Cheese



Look at those beautiful angel and devil costumes! I collaborated with Glenda from Midnight Boudoir on Etsy who made these costumes to send in to the 3rd annual Fur Ball charity gala that is run by the Kitten Rescue in California. Glenda asked me to take photos of JD and Ringo in the costumes so that she'd have some photos of her beautiful work to send in to the gala. The pups were more than happy to oblige and they look so charming in these pieces. I cannot believe how talented Glenda is and how intricate these wings are. I am so excited that her costumes and my photos will be seen by celebrities like Jenna Fischer from TV's "The Office", who has been to past galas! Please visit Glenda's shop and see how lovely her work is :]

I currently have the house to myself and have been spending the whole day playing with the pups, so they are currently exhausted and both napping at the moment. Since they're being so quiet, I have a few minutes to share my tasty vegan cream cheese recipe with you. I made it this morning and I can't stop eating it!


Smooth Strawberry Cream "Cheese"


Ingredients:
1 cup of soft tofu
1/4 cup of broken cashews
1/2 tsp of sea salt
1/2 cup of strawberries (feel free to use another berry if you prefer)
4 tsps. of agave nectar or pure maple syrup

Directions:
Pat dry the tofu. Don't worry about making it dry, you want it a bit wet. Toss the tofu and all other ingredients into a food processor or blender until the mix is smooth and creamy. Enjoy it on anything from bagels to toast to english muffins, or use it to jazz up a yummy wrap. I like to eat mine on Ezekiel 4:9 Cinnamon Raisin Bread. Mmmmmm!

You can refrigerate the leftovers for approximately 4-8 days. This will make around 1 cup of cream "cheese". And, yes, it does taste like strawberry cream cheese, only it's better for you!



Enjoy the day, loves!

Mommy read about your cream cheese before bed last night and dreamed of it. Now she must get to the store to make that dream come true.
You both look so fabulous in those angel and devil wings. I guess I would have to wear the red ones. Since my breeder told mom and dad that I was a little devil, I have been fulfilling my destiny. Brigitte gets the white ones, cuz she's a little goody two shoes. Hmmmm...what does that leave for Sluggo, I guess he'll have to borrow as the situation calls for it.
