Thankful Thursday – Kindness

This week I am deeply grateful for the kindness I possess. The kindness I am able to show others. The ability to aid those in need and be kind to all.

Kindness costs nothing, spread that stuff everywhere.

in association with the weekly challenge Thankful Thursday by Mithriluna. Momdeavor is the blog and offers some real inspiration. Head over to be inspired and share in the gratitude thus Thursday 🙂

Raw Organic Coconut Rolled Cashew Sweets

Goodness me…how delicious! So sweet and majorly high in fats but oh my I really could have got lost in these were it not for my senses kicking in. To be honest I probably did have one or two too many but once you try them you will be pining for more too!
Healthy and organic rawness comes alive on your tongue when you indulge in these balls.
Now this isn’t so much as a recipe more just a post as these beauties were just thrown together at the calling of my womanhood with no measuring whatsoever and not being complicated at all it is really simple to create your own.
The ingredients are:
* Organic Smooth Cashew Butter
* Organic Desiccated Coconut
* Organic Agave Syrup
I took about 3 large spoonfuls of butter and mixed with about the same amount of coconut and slightly less agave then I continued to slowly add more of each until I reached a consistency where it could be rolled.
After rolling them into balls, as well as could be achieved, I then rolled them around in a plate of the coconut until they were covered.
I then changed the plate and put them in the fridge to set.
I returned around 30 minutes later to find they were nearly solid and upon taking a bite, I discovered they were oh so melt in the mouth.
Uh oh, Mumas found a new vice!
These will definitely be on the dessert list for this weekends antics 😀
If you love sweet treats then these are definitely for you!

Pumpkin Day at Riverford Organic Farm – Sutton Scotney

Amazing! I just loved to see the amount of people interested in organic produce last month. Its awesome! Whether they are regular buyers or just curious to the farm day out at Riverford, seeing that many people that care about what they consume was truly comforting.
It was eye opening for me to see where most of our weekly budget goes and the kids just adored the animals and variety if squash all around. After admiring the first glimpses of the farm site and browsing the stalls we walked outside where they were doing carpenrary, it was inspiring to see that it was a hit with the older children and I hope one year upon returning my boys will be at the level they can fully appreciate it and have a go for themselves. Passing many adorable and magical looking squash we stopped and the boys got to see an Owl up close that opened his beautiful wings and really showed off his cheeky personality. Next to him were some sleepy ferrets looking so snug and cozy and alongside them were more ferrets awake and ready to race! We took a stroll down to check out the worm dig with intentions to later return and along the path were the most delicious silky lettuces I have ever tasted…so good to see where they grow!
After checking out the whole place and working out what was where we showed the boys the beautiful Horses that help humans by pulling a wagon cart. I had promised the children animals and taking a trip in the cart seemed a perfect way to show them how humans and animals work together as well as enjoying a bumpy ride. They really enjoyed being on the wagon and adored the little dog that was on board with the driver. The horses were so graceful and did indeed look grand standing next to the boys.
It was lovely for the boys to stand next to and observe the size of a real tractor and amazing for us all to see the sheer size of the enormous combine harvesters.
We admired the face painting and did plan to get some done but it was so busy and we could think of much more things to do than que up for over 30 minutes so we opted out and indulged in some amazing chocolate and courgette (dairy and gluten free) brownies, wow, they were good! We really wanted to try the worm dig so we headed back outside to spend some time helping discover different breeds of worms! The kids loved having a dig with the shovels and even let Mummy have a go and in total we found about 7 worms and one was large enough to identify as a dark tipped worm.
We stayed for a while, got covered in mud, cleaned up and just as we reached the top of the field thee ferrets were getting ready to rave. Awaken from there sleepiness four ferrets, Taz, Tiz, Ivy and Fern were lined up waiting to go out. A couple were showed around nd the boys got to stroke them and say hello. We placed a bet on the green caged ferret called Fern and although she didn’t win it was a cute experience for the kids and roaring fun for the lively parents.

 After the race we considered the pumpkin carving and it was rather busy and the boys were slightly restless so we purchased a large pumpkin and headed back inside. We had another wander around and it was packed full of people in the warehouse, happy vibes! My friend really enjoyed the cheese stall and purchased some goat’s cheese and I admired the ‘give a pet a holiday’ team and found out how I can get involved. There were so many beautiful veggies everywhere and some absolutely stunningly crafted items for sale.

We decided we would go over to the lady carving wooden pencils and my friend said she would love to buy some for the boys so her and my eldest joined the que there. It was my turn to buy the next refreshments, my youngest boy and I headed off to get some cake and upon reaching my friend I remembered the stall selling hot Apple juice which we had earlier tried and I had previously thought if the mulled wine is anything like the Apple then it is a must. Upon reaching the stall it dawned on me how much of a good idea it would be to actually get some so we did and it was amazing, so delicious, mouthwatering and tasting, so comforting and warm. Just what a busy woman needs after a mission with 2 young boys! For the pencils the lady scorched the names required into hand carved pencils, they were very beautiful and a great idea! We gave thanks, admired the beautiful abundance of produce and organic people and made our way back outside.

 

It was indeed a packed event with thousands of people who attended and the queues reflected this.

 

I buy weekly from Riverford and will continue to do so until I have my own patch.

Thanks to everyone for a wonderful day out. We will definitely be back next year!
