Summer has arrived here this weekend with temps in the 80s and 90s and Miko has been a happy camper with long walks and snuggle, lazy time after.
For Memorial Day, we stopped at Zest Kitchen for lunch were it was packed! Love seeing such a demand for healthy vegan cuisine. I got the loaded vegan nachos which were a delicious splurge.
Then we went plant shopping for hot peppers and tomatoes to add to the patio which sweet hubby promptly planted.
For Memorial Day dinner, hubby had a Beyond Meat sausage and I experimented with a fast and simple carrot dog recipe topped with sauerkraut and relish – yum! Oh course there had to be corn and watermelon.
Other great eats include simple and colorful tofu stir fries, salad, and steamed squash.
Summer is here, I have been sweating more at the gym after a treadmill run, could be related to getting older too! Of course there was a great lunch from Pho Vegan Asian Cuisine, I tried the fried rice this time and it was delicious because I have not had fried rice in ages.
I also made delicious apple cinnamon oatmeal in a wok for breakfast Saturday and we stepped out for spicy Thai tofu dishes.
There was also a deal hunting trip to Grocery Outlet where I grabbed more Orgain Plant Based Protein Powder for cheap and had to resist the delicious cookies and cream organic vegan ice cream bars!
Last night I made a big batch of tomato curry chickpea saute with sweet potatoes and corn for leftovers for the week and a huge batch of seasoned quinoa with sauteed summer squash, so I will be set with easy lunches this week!
And I had my sweet lap buddy this weekend while I worked on some projects, he’s such a sweetheart! Boo on the weekend being over, but I am looking forward to a productive week at work and finally getting out backyard fence repaired this week. Finding a contractor and working that out with our neighbors was a project that I’m looking forward to being done with. But first the list and it’s a good one to head into the week with.
