So, I LOVE General Conference! Being at the feet of the Prophet and Apostles and General Authorities and Presidencies of the Church. Feasting on the words of Christ.
Surrounded by my family, in our home. Comfy. Cozy. Focusing on the Gospel and being together. Preparing and feasting on a LOT of food! Now, usually, that meant a lot of JUNK food and then having ornery children and feeling drowsy, fighting off sleep during the talks. Not good. Not happy to admit.
THIS Conference was different! :) For the second Saturday morning session we had delicious, sweet, and juicy red grapes to snack on. For the Sunday sessions we snacked on strawberry and mango fruit leathers and dried apples. I think this will be my new tradition. Fruit leathers of all flavors to savor during Conference. For a special dessert I made my own recipe for Apple Pie. It was incredible! ALL of my family LOVED it! I will post some pics and here is the recipe:

1 1/2 - 2 C. Pecans
7 Medjool Dates, pitted
pinch of Himalayan Salt (H.S.)
1 t. Cinnamon
1 t. Vanilla

Food process and press into a pie plate.

4 Organic Granny Smith Apples, thinly sliced in a food processor
2 Organic Fuji Apples, diced and added to blender
1 C. Organic Raisins, soaked for 30 minutes, then added to blender
Juice of 1 lemon
Pinch of H.S.
1 t. Vanilla
1 T. Cinnamon
1 T. Raw Agave or Raw Honey

Blend the Fuji Apples, Raisins, Salt, Vanilla, & Cinnamon. In a bowl, combine apples, blended mixture, lemon juice, and drizzle with Agave and mix well. Add to pie plate.

Crumble Topping:
2 C. Walnuts
7 Large Medjool Dates
1 t. Vanilla
Pinch of H.S.

Food Process until crumbly and top the pie.
