A Time of Mourning…

If I could, I’d like to ask everyone to take a small moment of silence…

To remember a good friend of mine.

A friend who has always been there when I needed him, never letting me down even once.

What they say is true…death knows no age.

And at the ripe age of 3 years old, I regret to say that Fred is no longer with us…

Poor Fred.

With his worn-off labeling, his cracking buttons, and scratched up bowl…

He was truly loved.

It all happened so fast…

One minute we’re getting ready to share in some Red Velvet Cake

And the next…

It’s all fun and games until somebody loses an eye a rim.

I tried to do my best to remember (and cherish) the good times we had together…

Our massive smoothie bowls:

The Great Pumpkin Green Smoothie

Adventures in burger making:

Edamame-Millet Burgers

The sauces we whipped up:

“Pizza Pizza” Cashew Cheese

Vegan Broccoli ‘n Cheese Sauce

Raw Avo-fredo Sauce

The dips we delighted in:

Vegan Cheeseburger Dip

Carrot Cake Hummus 

Kalamata Olive Hummus

Mint Chocolate Chip Hummus

All the cookies we shared:

Carrot Cake “Cookies”

Everything-but-the-Sugar Cookies

PB&J Hummus Balls

And who could forget those times he looked the other way when I came at him with my spatula:

Maple Cinnamon Peanut Butter

But even after all that [mouth-watering] reminiscing, I’ll admit it…I just don’t handle these things well…so today, I went out, looking for a way to soothe my pain…

I ended up at the grocery store…
where foodie “retail therapy” ensued.

Walking numbly up and down the aisles, boxes, jars, and packages were lackadaisically tossed into the buggy until something caught my eye…

What is this? A waffle maker? For only FOURTEEN bucks?

So sleek, so shiny…I mean, look at it…it’s damn near SPARKLING!

And whaddaya know, this Pancake Queen CAN make waffles!

With death comes new life.

RIP Fred!

What do you think…traditional burial or cremation? 😉
I would send him out to sea but unfortunately I live in a landlocked state!

What is your MOST used kitchen appliance?
