Breakfast Apple Crumble! I baked this beauty up for a celebratory breakfast to congratulate my cousin in passing her Red Provisional Driver’s exam! And on her first go too!
4 large Pink Lady apples (lucky we had gone apple picking just a few days before!), peeled, cored, and sliced
1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp pink Himalayan rock salt
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp + 1 tsp arrowroot powder (or use cornstarch instead)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup almonds, blitzed until chunky
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1 tbsp raw organic agave nectar
2 tbsp coconut oil
Pinch of pink Himalayan rock salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 205°C. Place all filling ingredients in a large bowl and stir to mix. Blitz all topping ingredients briefly until just combined, you still want this to be chunky. Add 1/2 the topping mixture with the filling and pour into a lightly greased (I used coconut oil) 1.4L casserole dish. Sprinkle the rest of the topping over the filling, cover the casserole dish with foil (otherwise topping will burn) and bake for 40 min. Let cool for ~15 min before serving because it’s uber-hot when fresh from the oven! I served mine with some cookies and cream ice-cream for the celebrant, but I had mine with a dollop of yoghurt! Hot and crispy, yum!!!

BIG PHOTOSETS FOREVER FOR THEY ARE MUCH HARDER TO IGNORE / a lot of these don’t have hi-res versions available, but i still want to post them
This was not an exaggeration. The government ignored the issue of HIV/AIDS for years before anything was done. Gay and Queer communities had to form their own clinics because no government agencies cared for them. Back then, being diagnosed was equivalent to a death sentence or extreme debt and poor quality of life/a significantly shortened lifespan.
Things got so desperate that people literally had “Die-Ins”— in contemporary usage this refers to masses of people simulating death in order to protest something (like the War in Iraq). In this case, however, fatally sick people would literally lie down in public places and protest with what little energy they had left until they died. There is some footage of a church Die-In in the documentary Beyond Stonewall. The middle image here of that person’s jacket is not an extreme political statement; it’s what people had to do because they had no other options.
queer politics aren’t all hrc t-shirts and shiny lobbying. So many people have already forgotten this extremely recent history.
never forget that AIDS actually was originally called “GRID” as in “Gay-Related Immune Deficiency” and it took straight ppl dying from blood transfusions for people to actually consider this a crisis worth fixing.
