{Whole foods wonders}

Trip to whole foods was a success!All of these recipes can be found on!
I purchased the ingredients to make:
-mushroom ceviche
-chocolate pumpkin truffles
-vegan tiramisu
-savory wild rice forestiere
-maple pecan birthday cake
Along with a pumpkin spice latte (to die for), vegan gumdrops, my favorite dorset cereal (berries and cherries), pumpkin butter and a few other things.
It was great to talk to the employees there.. when I used to live in Hillcrest I went there so often I got to know all of the employees.

Made mushroom ceviche for dinner.
The real reason I wanted to make ceviche is because of the character on Chowder.
I really like ceviche's leotard and voice and how he's hopelessly in love with Panini.

The actual food ceviche is a citrus-marinated seafood dish hailing from Peru.
In the non-vegan version, the meat was marinated in a citrus-based mixture and allowed to marinate for 3 hours.
The long marinating time allowed the meat to absorb the citrus, pickling it.
In the recipe that I made, the dryness of the mushrooms worked perfectly to absorb the juice.
The zucchini was crisp and the chives were fragrant.
The only thing that went wrong was that I didn't have any lemon juice so I used the juice of half a lime.
Arranged the ceviche in a dish, ate it with chips and listened to awesome 80's music while sewing Viking garb.

I still watch arthur so I bought this to make and eat during the program.
