It’s been a great and relaxing weekend here so far with an easy run in the cool air this morning, shopping, seeing Thor with hubby, playing Mario Odyssey like a kid, and great eats. And we got rain! Just enough make the air crisp and fresh and give us this beautiful sunset last night as the clouds cleared.
The extra hour has been blissful too, I slept in this morning and giddy to see I had an hour more of relax time. Miko has been enjoying his warm blanket and snooze time with the chilly weather.
And sweet hubby surprised me with a bouquet of sunflowers to brighten up the kitchen.
They’re probably my favorite flower and I love that they grow everywhere here in the summer.
But this time of year brings Silk Nog to brighten up coffee with holiday cheer.
I was so excited when I found this at Target last weekend, it’s never too early for this holiday treat to show up in stores!
I also found Dave’s Gourmet Creamy Ginger Citrus hot sauce and grabbed it when I saw the happy vegan label on it.
It’s delicious in an avocado blender dressing and great for dipping roasted potatoes, veggies, and chips with the perfect amount of heat with playful and slightly sweet ginger citrus flavor.
It has also been a week of enjoying winter squash, Gardein vegan “chicken” nuggets, and comforting miso soup with veggies and edamame spaghetti.
I also had my favorite vegan wonton soup with yellow noodles from Pho Vegan Asian Cuisine.
I used one of my favorite Trader Joe’s vegan sauces in a simple veggie stir fry – Island Soyaki.
It’s low cal and so easy for quick stir fries with a bright and savory soy citrus flavor.
We also stepped out to try a new vegan/vegetarian Indian restaurant – Mylapore. The vegan menu had so many options it was a bit overwhelming!
We started with the vegetable samosas served with tamarind and mint sauces which was delicious.
Hubby got the spicy dosa and I got puffy bread with chickpea curry. The dishes were great, reasonably priced and surprisingly filling.
And I had a hearty comfort meal last night with Dijon roasted potatoes and steamed broccoli.
I had to share with Miko since he’s a fan of both. It was such a nice weekend, boo on it being over. But let’s end it with good reading.
This is pretty big news from Campbell’s and seemingly positive sign of the times.
Dynamic Running Therapy is a thing, a good thing.
