Hi Everyone

Happy Autumn Is Here

Happy Autumn Is Here

Finally the reason snowbirds come to tucson...

Fabulous Cool Tucson weather is here. Groom On The Go made it through the worst of the summer heat.

As our reward for hanging in, we have holiday celebrations.

Exercise With Your Dog

Time to breath in some happy autumn, crisp cool Tucson air with your dog...

We Like to take our dog for a walk to what I call, the creosote forest, behind our house in marana. Behind all the houses lies a dirt path that extends into a wash. There are literally miles and miles of creosote bushes,

no cactus just these sagey smelling bushes that grow wild all around our area and in our back yard.

It is a peaceful walk. You can see the mountains all around in the distance. It is a nice time to organize thoughts

and relax with calm Ipod music buzzing in my ears like some...

Jack Johnson or Jose Gonzales

Your going to need a great source of energy for all this walking around with the pup, on a beautiful autumn day..

How about some Holiday pie? ...

Rock-In Sweet Potato pie

I dreamed up this Rock-In Sweet Potato Pie out of necessity...

It came out great.

I had a big taste for pie as I always do this time of year. I went to the store the day after Thanks giving to find pumpkin pie but couldn't find a single pie. Not surprising and probably better I didn't find any. you are always better off making your own so you can control the ingredients.

anyway, Rocken Sweet Potato Pie taste like pumpkin pie put is naturally sweeter I think.

No refined sugars are used only medjool dates to sweeten.

Also I used yams and a food processor for all the ingredients.

350 degrees-30 to 45 minutes

Crust: 1/2 a box or 2 packs Graham crackers 3-4 medjool dates Add crust ingredients to food processor and process until a doughy consistency.

spray a pie dish with pam or other coating so no sticking.

press crust into pie plate. Set aside and make filling.

Filling:

bake 2 large sweet potatoes until good and soft. I put a little water in the pan to speed up . should end up with 2 cups sweet potatoes

peel them.

2 t cinnamon

1/2 t ground cloves

1-1 1/2 milk or soy milk

7 medjool dates

processes all ingredients together. Add liquid gradually while your food processor is running. stop and check for the righ creamy consistency, not too thick or too thin. proccess until very smooth.

that's it

pour into prepared pie dish and bake 350 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes until semi dry and firm. set covered in frig after it cools down. Eat your pie slightly warm or cold whatever your preference, taste great either way. Have it ala mode.

Enjoy and Happy Autumn
