We did a sage smudge to the apartment, the cat (!), and ourselves at the end of last month. We had such a mucky end of 2013 that it felt like we’d take whatever little help we could get to clear out the nasties from the corners of our life. So far, January has been so full of friends and big loves that I’m calling it for Team Doesn’t Suck.
The week that hell froze over in the midwest, I flew there to watch one of my dearest friends get married. Important eats included: bacon, egg, & cheese empanadas and a really boss chocolate sprinkle donut. Last weekend, we had some friends in town and we ate baked oatmeal and drank very legit diner Irish Coffee.
So clearly I’m not doing any sort of cleanse to start the year, but I do appreciate a good smoothie. Every day this month, Serious Drinks is posting a juice or smoothie recipe and asked me to pitch in a couple smoothies. The first one is this nutty, caramely, creamy vegan smoothie starring dates and tahini. Head on over to Serious Eats for the recipe!
