"Jacob Strikes Back" with yet another guest photo op on a Friday post (third time is a charm, and he's quite the charmer). This time he captured the constant battle between "Friend and Foe" in the fast food market. Plankton is always planning his next move when it comes to stealing his childhood friend Krab's secret krabby patty recipe, and it looks like he's at it again.
Little does he know, but this patty is really an impostor, "rawified" by yours truly with the aid of my trusty "I Am Grateful" uncookbook (I've been meaning to try some more of the recipes from it; I finally got a chance to sample an "I Am Cheerful" sun burger) and Alissa Cohen's idea to turn jicama into fries.
I made this happy raw meal, since my son and I were going on a play date to none other than the local McDonald's (hey, a kid's gotta be a kid, right?).
He had a great time playing with his friends, and when we got home, he helped set up this photo shoot. This time it was a collaborative effort, although he had the final say and his finger on the trigger (the button on the camera, that is).
The rest of the evening was dedicated to family time and Thursday Night Raw. As usual, you'll have to wait until the weekend to get the details.
And, if your getting the hang of my new schedule, you're probably wondering what's in my smoothie today. Well then, I'll tell you. It's definitely packed with greens, but I also added some walnuts and pumpkin seeds, like in this "burger" and another "meaty" food I made for last night's dinner.
As for the fruit, I put in banana, orange, peaches, pineapple, grapes and berries, similar to the fruit served during our Thursday meal. And, just like last week, I used Java Teeccino for the liquid, since it went so well with the menu.
Oh yeah, while I was reminiscing about last night, I also added a touch of sweetness with a little maple syrup. Now, that's a breakfast smoothie :-)
