Valentine’s Day Tea Party | Leander Texas Family Photographer

valentines_day_tea_party

My mom and I planned this sweet little tea party for the kids the week of Valentine’s Day.  We made all sorts of special treats and used my grandmother’s old tea set.  I have so many wonderful memories of tea with my grandmother when I was a little girl.  The set is chipped and dinged and that’s one of my favorite things about it.  It means it was loved and used.  So we had tea with our pinkies in the air and it was lovely!

Day 165 | 365 Project

165

My current addiction.

Romaine lettuce, a cup or two of quinoa (cooked in bone broth), blueberries, mandarine oranges and fresh roasted almond slivers (a little ghee and some sea salt toasted on the stove top).  Add a little poppy seed dressing…..TO.DIE.FOR.  Don’t bother making it without the fresh toasted almonds.  They make the whole thing.

Leek Soup

Leek Soup is a favorite around here.  I pretty much always have leeks on hand because I use them to make homemade bone broth.  I like to try out different recipes and this week I tried one by The Gluten Free Goddess and it was pretty good.  I did alter her recipe though.  Instead of water for the stove top version I used a combination of 2 parts homemade beef bone broth and 1 part organic coconut milk.  That gave our soup a big nutritional boost!  I also added in a bunch of Herbamare (my absolute favorite organic seasoning blend).  This soup is really *really* good if you make your own bacon bits out of organic pastured bacon.  Seriously, soooo good.  We paired it with a big salad.  Leeks are a great nutritional source, they are rich in vitamin K, vitamin A, manganese, vitamin C, folate, vitamin B6, iron, fiber, magnesium, molybdenum, copper, calcium and potassium!  When making leek soup you pretty much only need the white portion of the leek so once I trim them down, I save the darker green parts and either freeze them or throw them in the bone broth constantly brewing in my crock pot.
