Message from Sister Kathryn

I am Here to offer a couple of things: First;  In regard to minding our words in the MatrixI learned a technique from a former teacher. He mentioned that the tongue ( in the back of the throat ) vibrates very subtly and also that hearing is a big influence, too. So this practice can quell this vibration and calm the mind.  Like a second attention. Mindfulness.This technique that was prescribed is to place a stone, one that fits comfortably in the roof of the mouth in the indentation. Hold it there with the tongue against the roof of the mouth. (We used the jade donut shaped stones.)The exercise that accompanied this was to ask three questions before moving the stone to one side before speaking.The questions were: Is it true?   Is it kind?        Is it necessary?If so,  then the stone id moved to one side of the inside of the mouth.This is a practice that allows for pause before speaking.AND I speak from experience this works……Do remember to remove the stone befor eating.If one is prompted, with practice this can be applied for during sleep. 

I hope that this offering is clear, if not questions are freely received.
Next–  The discovery of a Cauliflower Pizza Crust is a perk in my creative cooking. There are 2 options- one vegan and the other not. It has egg in it.It’s a bit intensive and worth it.So here is the recipe for the Vegan crust:One chose feast cauliflower or frozen cauliflower rice, which is cauliflower that has been crumbled and frozen.1 1/2 pounds of Cauliflower rice (frozen or fresh)3 Tbsp Flax seeds1/2 cup almond flour or meal1/2 tsp salt1/2 tsp garlic power1/2 tsp dried oreganoINSTRUCTIONSpreheat oven  to 400*, line baking sheet with parchment paper of oil the pan wellFROZEN METHOD ( fastest): If using frozen method – the in the fridge the night before. Frozen cauliflower florets may be  used instead, ‘rice’ them briefly in a food processor, before the next step.FRESH METHOD:  Steam in a large pot with 1 inch of h2o, place in a steamer basket. Bring water to boil, once boiling, cover the pot and reduce heat to a simmer for10-15 minutes. ( or remove form heat with the lid on and allow to sit for 20 minutes or so) This allows the preparation of the toppings and to grate the cheese. <<OptionalCook till very tender.  Allow to cool. Drain once done and transfer to a food processor one the cauliflower has been squeezed of the excess liquid. ( Place cooked cauliflower into a clean thin dish towel or a nut milk bag. A clean white generous sized piece of the-shirt  is a good substitute. I used the dish towel and it ripped open. Using the hands to squeeze out the liquid. There will be quite a lot of liquid, close to a 1/2 cup.) Process briefly to large rice consistancy.Next- Place the drained cauliflower into large bowl, add the ground flax seeds or chia seeds, almond flour, salt, garlic & oregano . 

Stir and mix well, using the hands id need to get the mixture to stick together. Option- add a Tbsp of water if needed. By using hand the extra liquid may not be needed.Press dough on to pan using hands to shape to desired shape and size.The thinner and flatter in pressing the crust the better, making the crust as even as possible to get a sturdy result. This may yield a 12 – 14 in crust.Bake the crust for 45 minutes, checking on it after 30 minutes to avoid burning. (NOTE; this  crust can be delicate.) Touching it for dryness and the appeared of golden brown.TIP: while the crust is baking …place the choice of veggies toppings in the oven to roast in a separate pan. Looking on them after ’bout 15 minutes.Remove when tender yet partially cooked. Suggest from the recipe author:For the best texture, the recommendation is to flip the crust over and return to over for another 5-10 minutes, so the dry side is on the bottom making it easier to pick up the finished pizza with hands.

This is optional Enjoy !!! I will send the non vegan recipe out or the reader may search on line.

Muchas Gracias,

Kathryn
