Here in Missoula we have a fabulous magazine made for moms called Mamalode. The two ladies below asked me to document their adventures with the Hellgate Rollergirls as they learned to skate fast, stop safe, and what it means to be in the circle of pain. You can still get this article on the magazine stand or you can click here and go to page 37.
Thanks Elke and Dori for including me and suPer thanks to Darby Smash (hot roller mom) for making it happen.
2 cups water
Soak the cookies in water for 60 seconds. Blend for 30 seconds. Strain through cheesecloth. Take the cookies out of the cloth and blend again with 2 more cups of water for 30 seconds. Strain through the same cheesecloth. Throw cookie grounds in your mouth. Drink milk.
I'm inspired by Hailey King. She photographs her world of baking, in a soft intimate way, making me wish I lived with her. In her honor, I thought, I would share how to make your own almond milk. I can't believe how impatient I am when photographing still life. I don't know what to do with something that can't pop out it's hip or bend the elbow more...oh well.
My mother is one of the most healthy food makers, food preparers, and label readers out there. She influences her bothers, maybe her sister, maybe my sister, her mother and defiantly me with her organic this and her no-growth-hormone that. I spent the holidays with her and now...I will be making my own almond milk.
1 cup almonds (organic - duh)
2 cups water
Soak the almonds over night in water. Mix almonds and water in blender for 30 seconds. Strain through cheesecloth. Take the almonds out of the cloth and mix again with 2 more cups of water in blender for 30 seconds. Strain through the same cheesecloth. Throw almond grounds and cloth away. Drink milk.
