Feng Shui

We had a feng shui expert come to the house. She said we needed a "water feature" in the back yard to help with our prosperity and prevent money from flying out of our life. So far she seems to be right because before we had that fountain hooked up, $99 flew out to pay for the feng shui expert and another $300 went for the water trough and solar pump.

Other feng shui rememedies the house needed: tons of metal in various rooms, some furniture rearranging, and a "mountain feature" in the front yard to protect us from the onslaught of "chi" coming from an oncoming street.

I actually love the changes so far. The living room looks cozier, the bedroom is much more bright and open, and the fountain fills me with glee every time I catch a glimpse of it. I'm not sure what to do for the mountain feature. Right now, we've just got the car parked out front to block all that darned chi.

Raw recipe of the week - Whipped sweet potatoes

This is one of those recipes that seems great when you take the first bite and then you're totally done. It might make a decent side dish at a raw Thanksgiving, but it's definitely not so great as a main entree.

Ingredients: Sweet potatoes, cauliflower, pine nuts, leeks, onion powder, flax oil, filtered water, Celtic sea salt, and parsley.
