It was just over a week ago that we buried my 22-day-old niece, Emma Rae. Her neonatal liver failure got the best of her body. (See where I first talked about this HERE). We went to Montana to be with my family and help distract them with my three hooligans. Everything went as good as possible; her 4-year-old brother even helped carry the casket out of the funeral service. I'm so glad we got to be there to love and support my brother and family.
As a mother, I can't imagine the emptiness that my SIL feels. It's times like these that I'm grateful for the hope and faith of living again as a family after we die. I really believe they will all be together again. But right now, it has to be a daily walk, a daily step, and hopefully an inspiration to live better knowing she's waiting for us all to join her.
Moving on to a more delicious topic, these were very good! Tyler kept on walking past the freezer just so he could snitch another one.
I recently found the Detoxinista and have already tried a couple of her recipes. I'll report on another one next. To find the recipe, go to her Creamy Almond Butter Freezer Fudge.
My only note is that I was wondering "why" did I have to include the coconut oil. So I tried her recipe and then did the same thing, half batch, without the oil. And surprise! It didn't work. The recipe needs the oil or it never sets up. The almond butter mixture never hardened, so I ate it with apples instead.
