Getting in the Spirit




I'd say I'm on my way! I'd also say that I deleted my picture of lunch, so I will have tell you all about it (don't worry, I'm having it for lunch on Thursday as well - so there will be a picture!).

First, breakfast at work before administering my first final exam of the day:
 Lunch (while listening to the Classic Christmas station on Spotify, pictured above): Tomato Coconut Curry Soup and my homemade version of Quinoa Pilaf with Cranberries and Almonds, sourdough roll.

Green grapes and a 45 minute spin class.

Dinner involved the noodles from this:
 Trying out this sauce:
 Dry fried tofu, stir fry veggies... and mixed with the above items into this:
Here's the thing: I keep thinking I can make up recipes, and the truth is: I can't. Ha ha! It was alright, but I won't make it again. 

See you on Thursday!

  2. The Noodles really do look good. Where did you get the Candy Canes?

    1. Only in appearance, not in taste! Ha ha! At our local mass market grocer (Kroger owned), but Hammond's is a local company. I've seen them at Whole Foods, too!

  3. Oh! I can't see how those noodles would be bad! Tofu, noodles, veggies, sauce - I wonder what wasn't good?
    I like that you ate two apples for breakfast. For some reason I never thought to eat a second apple? and was just content/lazy enough to be like, fruit doesn't fill me up enough!
    Cute tree! I was thinking about getting a small one, or decorating in SOmE way - our apartment is sorta depressing.

    1. It was just kind of bland. Perhaps I needed to season the veggies and tofu whilst cooking? I'll look up a similar recipe and see what they do!

      These apples for from TJ's, so the bagged variety, and definitely small! I figured out that two was the equivalent of a normal apple and 1/3 of another - plus the good fat/protein from almonds = completely satisfied!

      My little house can't candle more than a tabletop tree, but it adds just enough sparkle!

  4. Nice to see vegan candy canes (and a Christmas tree!). They always seem to make them over here without any ingredients on to fox wary vegans!

    1. This local company knows how picky Coloradoans are - and I appreciate their offerings!

  5. Yay, I definitely think this is a great start!!! I love your tree and hooray for candy canes! What flavor is the gold one?

    Great looking meals too. Apples with almonds is one of my favorite combos. Your lunch sounds so delicious, I've been loving soup lately. I agree with everyone else, I can't imagine how stir fried noodles can be bad! They certainly look yummy.

    Hope your week is going well! How long is your winter break? You must be excited!

    1. The gold one (the ingredient list you see above) is Butterscotch flavor. I don't find it to be very strong, but it is sweet!

      I'm so over soup, but I will eat this batch! Ha ha!

      It's two weeks long, and now that finals are over and graded - we just have meetings tomorrow until 2:30. Woo hoo! As Thanksgiving wasn't much of a break (mentally, emotionally), I am so in need of this...
