Happy Sunday night, I am here fighting the Sunday blues after a busy week last week. It was very crazy and stressful because poor Miko had a teeth cleaning and extractions Friday which is such a scary thing to put dogs through. When we took him for his annual vet checkup last week where the vet confirmed at least one painful, loose tooth that needed an extraction. The poor guy ended up having 4 removed and was pretty groggy when I picked him up Friday afternoon. Thankfully he seems to be feeling much better tonight after a weekend of cuddling and spoiling with soft treats.
More usual eats this week with salads, tofu stir fries, and blueberry loaded oatmeal Saturday morning shared with Miko.
We did step out last night to Mikuni’s for vegan sushi and fried potato patties that were delicious.
Today I met my sister at Veg Cafe for brunch where I got the fried mushroom “chicken” and waffle dish that was crazy delicious. Topped with vegan sour cream and picked jalapeno’s, the flavors and textures worked so well together. Normally I am picky about mushrooms, but these were delicious.
My sister got the savory spring crepe with coconut curry sauce that was also amazing with just the right amount of sweet curry.
And tonight I went with a total comfort dinner using Banza Chickpea Rigatoni blended with mushroom pasta sauce and broccoli.
The texture of the pasta was great even though many of them broke into pieces after being mixed with broccoli and it made a great, comforting meal.
But after decadent weekend eats, it’s back to better eating for the week. I decided to try this OXO Good Grips POP 6 qt. bulk pantry container for storing simple air popped popcorn for easy and healthier snacking.
I like to spritz plain popcorn with a mixture of tamari, apple cider vinegar, and maybe a little liquid smoke, but don’t always have time to pop a fresh batch when running home for lunch, etc. Looking forward to being able to refill this on the weekends to have enough for the week.
