Chia pudding!

Mmmmm chia seeds. I love their little strawberry seedness, satisfying crunch, gel-shell after soaking... the interest they add to otherwise smooth foods and drinks.

This is a tasty, simple Chia Pudding dish I've made a few times:

-berries (this time I just used late season strawberries from my local farmers market, but raspberries, blueberries and blackberries work fine)
-plain greek yogurt
-chia seeds
-cacao nibs

Blend the berries with the yogurt with a blender. I didn't need to add any liquid, but you might want to add some water. Once it was a desirable consistency, stir in chia seeds to personal preference. Remember they will soak up liquid.

Put the mixture in the fridge at least for an hour, but preferably overnight. Serve in bowl and top with cacao nibs! Yum!

Inspired by the pop up books my sister and I had as kids, the fish is attached to the tail poking out at the bottom. This allows you to move the fish in the water.

One Saturday, More specifically May 14, 2011, I went out on a walk for about an hour near my home and collected pieces of paper I found along the way. I then came home and made a collage with them about where I live. The ticket stub I picked up was less than 3 hours old.
