Climbing Mt. Adams August 2011

This is an amazing shot from Lunch Counter on Mt. Adams.  You can see Mt. St. Helens but you can also see the sky shadow of Mt. Adams from the sun coming up behind me.  I've never seen anything like it in my life. 

Climbing Mt. Adams was one of the hardest things I've ever done and I have had 4 children!

It was well worth it knowing that I made it to the top! 12,276 feet.

Meatless Monday Tacos

Usually we have Taco Tuesday but I decided this week that we will combine our Meatless Monday with our Tuesday Taco night.  I will have to figure out what to have tomorrow but later. . .

This just looked delicious on the KLG and Hoda show today.  Bob from The Biggest Loser was on there with some other wonderful whip-up recipes but this was definitely a favorite.

I looked on the website but found nothing about it so I came up with my own just by looking at the pic on the tv.

Meatless Monday Tacos

4 whole wheat tortillas
1 can black beans, rinsed
2 heirloom tomatoes, diced
3 green onions, sliced
1/2 walla walla onion, minced
10 sprigs cilantro, destemmed & chopped
1/2 cup frozen corn, microwaved for 3 minutes
1 avocado, skinned & cubed
tofu sour cream

Combine all except the sour cream, salsa, and tortillas.  Place filling into tortillas and top with salsa and sour cream.


The Carnivore's Dilemma

I found this wonderful article which again lumps together the benefits of eating vegan.
