Im soooo sleepy and I don’t want to do my hair but I have too.
This gallant little boy comforted a classmate on her first day of preschool, and we’re not getting over it ever.
they’re so cute my heart can’t take it
Aww he is so cute calming her down like that….
Alright so I had been super excited about my dinner tonight. It would be the first time I tried a raw vegan meal! So, I made Raw Vegan Alfredo!! WHOOP WHOOP. Disclaimer: This is based on FullyRawKristina’s recipe, but I did mine with cucumbers! Here is what you’ll need.
Now you’re going to cut off the ends of three cucumbers.
Peel the skin off, with the peeler to give the illusion of alfredo noodles, since they are white. Also, I would really recommend Zucchini’s for this, but FOR SOME HORRID HORRID REASON my grocer didn’t have them! I cried. So, cucumbers had to do. They can be used, but Zucchini’s create a better illusion, taste, and texture for alfredo. Start to peel your cucumber or Zucchini at a slight angle. Peeling them straight up and down can be harder, and cause you to mess up your noodles. If you have a spiralizer, just hook the veg on and twist away!
(Yes I do know that my work space is messy,cucumbers are pretty watery and get just about everywhere. Ya know how it is).
Your noodles should look like this!
Ah, fresh cucumber ribbons!
With the left over cucumber, you’re going to dice it up and put it in the blender along with your pine nuts (I used a quarter of a cup), garlic, and herbs like so.
Now mix it until it gets creamy, like this!
Now, I wanted a little somethin’ somethin’ in my ‘pasta’ so I added to hand-fulls of cherry tomatoes!
Yes this is two hand fulls for me! My hands are tiny, okay?
And here is the end result! Now for how it tasted….
I didn’t like it.
I really didn’t.
It was the sauce mainly, I’m not a big fan of nuts, and even though the smell was aromatic and calming, and it DID taste lovely by itself. On cucumber, wasn’t very lovely. So, I ate the middles of the four cucumbers and four hand-fulls of cherry tomatoes. I was full to the brim!
Now my Mother loved it, and so did my Father. Me? I’d rather use Zucchini’s with a cucumber sauce, OR cucumber noodles with a cinnamon beet and basil marinara sauce. Next time I’ll try Zucchini’s and see how it goes! Hopefully if you try it, you’ll like it!
Yes Bonnies kind of been used and forgotten about but she's no the only one. It happened with Jeremy and Matt too so why is everyone complain about Bonnie only?
okay, assuming that what the writers have done with matt and jeremy is in any way comparable to what they’ve done with bonnie (which, for the record, it’s not), the difference is that white dudes are a dime a dozen in mystic falls (and on virtually every other television show… and every movie… and every book… etc).
if we lose jeremy, we still have matt. if we lose matt, we still have jeremy. if we lose matt and jeremy, we still have stefan, damon, enzo, etc. hell, an entire spin-off series is centered around the original white dudes- klaus and elijah.
bonnie is not a dime a dozen.
bonnie was a powerful multi-faceted woman of color. she was vulnerable and brave, compassionate and critical, emotional and pragmatic. she was stubborn. she was her own person. she was a human being.
but she has slowly become a plot device, a dues-ex-machina, a prop for the emotional arcs of other characters.
the writers have mistaken her vulnerability as naivete, as a reason for her to be easily manipulated. they’ve used her compassion to turn her into a doormat. they’ve used her pragmatism to strip her of her emotions.
they’ve made her complacent when we know her to be anything but.
bonnie is not replaceable. and even if she was, who would replace her?
- anna? nope, she’s dead.
- pearl? nope, she’s dead.
- lucy? nope, haven’t heard from her since s2.
- bree? nope, she’s dead.
- sheila? nope, she’s dead.
- tessa? nope, she’s dead.
- emily? nope, she’s dead.
do you see a pattern here?
my point: nobody is complaining about bonnie, anon. we’re mourning her.
