Second best: soy crumbles in taco seasoning, kale, and salsa.... (In the background, a comal which is essentially a cast iron flat top, which I use for heating tortillas. I purchased it a decade or more ago from a Mexican supermarket)

Can't stay for long, as the weekend hardly existed and I'm exhausted! Too much going on, and not enough rest!
Remy and his bff from next door went on a walk...
I accompanied a friend to Sam's Club, and purchased these:

As promised, the final result of Sunday's production line:
TJ's Vegetable Masala Burger (ah-may-zing), red rice (just okay - needs more spice), green beans. Co-workers have been eyeing my lunch lately. Yay Team Vegan!
Dinner has looked like this:
(Repeating this tonight, but have less noodles so I'm adding a side of steamed broccoli.)

The weekend has gone too quickly! I didn't make it the yoga class I had planned yesterday, but I did get to spend a couple of hours with my cousin, her husband, and their one year old daughter (whom I adore!). This afternoon I'm hanging out with my parents and brother as they watch football (I'm reading on my Kindle App). Nonetheless, it has been a tasty two days (or so I think - my head cold is nearly finished).
Homemade banana bread from Happy Herbivore.
I made the carrot ginger soup yesterday, with an extra tablespoon of ginger paste - super spicy and good! Adorable storage options for the leftovers.
Tofu Teriyaki Bowl from Tokyo Joe's.
Cheezy kale chips on the dehydrator.
Asian Chopped Salad with mandarin oranges brought to my folks for lunch...
Meal prep for the week (I have one serving of the curry and veggies leftover from last week, so I only made four days worth). Charleston Red Rice from Happy Herbivore...

I have successfully prepared, eaten, and enjoyed the menu items from my previous post, with the exception of one: carrot ginger soup. It was on the menu for tonight, but a rhinovirus has infected my olfactory and I can't taste a damned thing, and without a smeller to enjoy the lovely gingery is scent...Why waste good food on tasteless tastebuds? When I do make it - it'll be this recipe: http://kblog.lunchboxbunch.com/2009/02/recipe-vegan-carrot-ginger-soup-two.html
In the meantime, here are the others: oatmeal daily, Asian stir fry veggies with fresh rice noodles and Soyaki, and homemade yellow curry over potato, broccoli, and peas.

It has already been a long winter. I only want hot food, and made an effort this weekend to mix up my meal temperatures (read: something that can't be served in a bowl). But first, a Sarah-inspired oatmeal:
Walnuts, coconut, dark brown sugar all up in my bowl of oats...
I keep trying to like seaweed snacks, but I just don't...
Yesterday's bowl of homemade potato leek soup was accompanied by crusty sourdough (dipped into it, naturally)...
Today's cup (not shown) of all that was left of the soup was accompanied by a spinach, dried cranberry, walnut, raspberry vinaigrette salad...
And these bites of deliciousness were just fine to eat room temperature (no, I didn't eat the whole bag - only a few! They'll be perfect when I want a little chocolate).
It snowed up to 15 inches in the mountains in the last 36 hours, and while that moisture won't land in the Denver metro area, the wickedly cold winds and foggy mornings make it extra chilly. Thus, more hot food on the menu this week: more vegetable curry with saag, carrot ginger soup, Asian vegetable stir fry... And oatmeal, of course. I'll make all of it before Wednesday, so you can expect to see an example of each in that day's post.
Happy MLK Weekend!

I'm thrilled we are over half way through the week; I can see the three day weekend on the horizon! Here's my day:
Winter breakfast of champions - juicy citrus. One of my meals prepped on Sunday: Appetite for Reduction's Braised Cabbage and Seitan, served with brown rice - taken for lunch.
Workday snack: small apple, carob spirulina energy bites, green tea.
