I am feeling much better and even had two decent training runs at the gym and a just okay long run outside today. The weather has not been very spring-like the last few days with chilly rain and storms. Since we’re getting sunshine today, we had to take advantage of that for yard work and long dog walks.
Or long sessions of stopping every few feet to let Leela sniff more – she has become more aggressive about sniffing everything since she started having vision issues.
She was so wiped out after today’s walk she stuffed herself in her “deep dish” bed for a few hours.
Miko played king of the bed mountain as I rearranged pet beds to wash them.
It’s been an interesting week with simple eats and I really need to restock at Trader Joe’s soon. I threw together a basic tofu oil free stir fry with veggies after crazy day.
The purple carrots turned the tofu purple too – pretty!
I also got creative with more of Imagine Foods Organic Red Bliss Soup.
By toasting dry quinoa in a wok, then adding liquid to cook. Once cooked, I added in chopped veggies and Tofurky sausage, then stirred in the rest of the potato soup, dash of liquid smoke, and pepper for an interesting one pot meal. It was delicious!
The quinoa had a nutty flavor, the soup added a creamy, gooey texture and the smokey flavor made it wonderful.
Last night we had a fun, casual family gathering at my sister’s house with our usual family tradition of a taco bar. I brought simple cooked lentils and onion for a pretty veggie lentil taco with hot sauce.
And used the leftover lentils to through together a lentil, tomato, and broccoli stew for lunch today.
Not a bad weekend at all and so thankful to be feeling better and looking forward to creating recipes this week.
