Excited for the big game? Not really here, we’ll be watching it at home while working on other stuff and playing in the kitchen. And Miko will probably be doing this.
Or claiming Leela’s double decker bed.
I treated myself to a new purse last week thanks to a too-tempting sale price and an draining, exhausting week – the Gunas Perch Purse.
I’ve always wanted to Gunas purse, but am also very picky about purses – they need to have secured zip pockets outside for easy access to the multiple cells phones I’m usually carrying for work. So far I’m loving it, the quality seems great, the zippers are nice and smooth and the purse is structured nicely while being large enough to hold my large wallet and phone, but not too big.
This has been kind of an odd week with work stress, recovering, etc. and I’ve had a bit of the blahs after crazy days sticking to simple eats like this potato and pinto bean saute with veggies, tamari, nutritional yeast, and dried herbs.
And lots of salads like this monster with steamed artichoke.
I’ve also discovered adding avocado to smoothies for a creamier, whipped texture.
Of course there was spicy Thai Friday night.
And hubby picked up Just Awesome Sauce to try and discovered it’s pretty awesome.
I paired it with roasted potatoes for dipping, the tangy and bright dill flavors were perfect.
I also may have had a little too much luck finding deals at Grocery Outlet yesterday, lots of raw vegan organic snacks in the health food section for a fraction of the price.
I loaded up on these Soul Sprout Nut Bars in every flavor trying the Wow Cacao Nib bar so far.
It has a rich chocolate flavor while not being overly sweet and great nutty texture. Perfect to have on hand for hikes and trail runs – now I just need to find more running groups to do that with!
Okay, to the list!
