Food & Art

Yesterday, a friend and I explored the art museum: 

Specifically the Degas exhibit:

It's that time of year where I begin to countdown: two weeks until spring break! Eleven weeks until summer!!! See you soon...

Just a Snap

Not too much to share this time - but here were my lunches last week: leftover superfood salad mix and tofu cooked sesame oil, and roasted chickpeas with kale over jasmine rice with peanut sauce.

 Unknown alerted me to the return of Trader Joe's Chickless Mandarin Orange Morsels. Happily, my store had them, so I picked up a bag and can't wait to try them!
 This morning, I made bran muffins and plan to eat them for breakfast this week.

See you soon! I hope you had a great weekend!

All of the Food

A small grocery haul from Natural Grocer's this week (my menu will consist of meals that use what I already have in the cupboard or fridge)...
Carrots, broccoli, lacinato kale, jewel yams, cremini mushrooms, edamame, avocado, coconut rolled dates, cauliflower.

Also purchased from Natural Grocer's:

An impulse buy from Target:
So good! Better than candy.
Last week, I promised a review on a few items:
 Here is the Energy Bite:

 Not my favorite, but I'll eat them. I think it's the black pepper they included.

 Superfood Blend sauteed in toasted sesame oil and braised tofu, garnished with peanuts.

See you soon!

It's Cold

Sunday was near 70 degrees. Since then, it has been like this:
 Keeping warm in the morning:
 On Monday, I started with a potato leek soup recipe but then added in a bunch of other veggies. It still turned out well, and has been my lunch this week.
Boca Crumbles in Marinara, spaghetti, and broccoli for dinner:

I picked up a few new items this week, and I'll post a review of them this weekend:

Happy Almost Weekend!

The last three weeks have been a little nuts, and while I haven't posted - I have taken photos here and there.  Thank you for sticking around, and peeking in on my little corner of the world!

Above: pancakes and coffee.  Below: a trip to Savory Spice produced two new treats.
 When Kombucha is on sale:


Avocado toast with nooch and TJ's Everything But the Bagel Seasoning.

Last week I had birthday.  

Mom made a white cake with vegan caramel sauce. 

 Birthday gift to myself from Envirosax (the previous one I had for seven years finally ripped).

Paid way too much money for this creamer, but curiosity got the better of me:

And the best part of my day, every day:

I will be back on Wednesday with food from this week.  I hope you are enjoying your weekend!

It's almost laughable, the state of these photos. However, we are in the time of year where 2/3 meals are eaten in the dark.

Oat bran with brown sugar and blueberries.

Stir fry veggies, sweet chili sauce over jasmine rice.

Last night, I partook in a Taco Tuesday.  The hostess kindly provided fajita veggies, cactus, and mushrooms for veggie versions.  I contributed tortillas (both soft corn and hard shell).  I brought home a few leftovers from the evening, including pickled onions, guacamole, and tomatillo salsa.  I cooked up some Boca crumbles in taco seasoning, and picked up a few necessary taco accessories:
By Monday evening I was functioning at about 95% vocally. Now if only I can catch up on some sleep...

See you this weekend!
