This whole “Inspired to Abundance” adventure is proving to be so much fun! I love that as the sums get larger, I must be more creative to imagine ways in which I would actually and realistically spend that much. This is great! Stay tuned for how the remaining sums will be allocated by myself and Family.
There are so many places to see!
The sum to spend is $50,000:
$18,500 – Return Airfare to Udaipur, India, for 8 People
$2,500 – Villa Rental for a Month
$21,000 – Food, Entertainment, Sightseeing, Transportation, Tips, Etc.
∴ With a bonus sum of $50,000 at the ready, I would take my whole Family to Udaipur, India, for a month, with the intention of visiting the Kumbhalgarh Ruins and see the Great Wall of India. There are so many places I want to see, and India is one of them.
I suppose I really should get serious about getting my driver’s license.
The sum to spend is $5,000:
$3,600 – Driver’s Training Courses for 4 People
$400 – Learner’s License Exams & Cards for 4 People
$600 – Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum
$200 – KitchenAid® 4.5-Quart Bowls x 4
$80 – KitchenAid® Wire Whip Attachment x 4
$60 – KitchenAid® 6-Speed Hand Mixer
$60 – KitchenAid® Stainless Steel Turbo Beaters
∴ With an extra $5,000 laying around, I would first take myself and three of my most important family members for Driver’s Training courses, then cover the costs of the written exams and the Learner’s Licenses. With what was left, I would replace my Dyson vacuum with an updated model, then invest in a few more pieces of KitchenAid® equipment to make baking and business production more efficient.

Day 27 ~ Post my fave recipe:
My favourite recipe is definitely my Cocoa Mocha Quenelles recipe. They’re rich and chocolate-y and oh so yummy. ❤
Every once in a while I like to re-visit my favourite recipes, and give them a little tweak. My latest recipe to receive an adjustment is my Cocoa-Mocha Quenelles recipe. I originally shared it on April 3, 2012, in a post called “Come to the Dark Side – We have Cookies! Cocoa-Mocha Quenelles.” My Elflings ask me to make these cookies if I haven’t made them for a while, and remind me exactly how long it’s been since I’d made them last. Their epic mathiness is well-played in this respect. So, without further ado, I will get to the redux aspect of our favourite recipe. ;0)Cocoa-Mocha Quenelles – Redux 2 C unbleached flour* (wheat, rice, quinoa, buckwheat, etc) 1 tsp baking powder* 1 tsp sea salt 2 Tbsp cocoa* 1 Tbsp cornstarch* 1 C butter* ¾ C brown sugar* ½ C sugar* 3 tsp En-R-G egg replacer 8 Tbsp strong decaf coffee* (or caffeinated, your choice) 2 tsp vanilla* extract * = Organic
∴ Preheat oven to 375°F/190°C/Gas Mark 5. Add flour, baking powder, salt, cocoa, and cornstarch to a medium-sized bowl. Stir with a whisk to blend, and set aside. In a larger bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until fluffy. Blend in egg replacer, coffee, and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture until well-blended. drop by teaspoonful (or shape into elegant quenelles) onto an un-greased cookie sheet, about 1″ apart. Bake for 8 minutes, or until lightly browned. Makes approximately 3 dozen. Enjoy! ❤
