Halloween is over, time to break out the Christmas playlists! Seriously, I probably will be listening to them this week, not ashamed. And what a strange Halloween! Finally we get a year with it on a Saturday night and fall back for an extra hour of partying … but it’s during a pandemic. 2020 just keeps on giving. I was really torn on what to do since traditional handing candy out was not an option and I was getting varying recommendations from friends and co-workers. We waited until the vary last minute to decide and went to Target to buy candy on the afternoon of Halloween only to find out they had none left! But they did have little packs of pretzels, veggie chips, Hippeas, and other savory vegan treats, so we bought those instead and set this up.
A decorated plant stand loaded with the treats and blocked off the front porch with web. And we got a solid amount at trick-or-treaters between 6:30 pm all the way to 10 pm, requiring refills – it seemed to be Halloween as usual in this area!
Eats were pretty good this week, lots of kale salads, a delicious soy curl stir fry, and bean pasta sauce mixed with steamed spaghetti squash with a plate of plain spaghetti squash for Miko of course.
I got to go to a fun vendor event at Topgolf one night after work making the second time I’ve been to Topgolf. Still not great at it, but can repeatedly hit easy targets giving me an edge over players going for tough shots, haha.
Other than that, just working, snuggling with Miko, enjoying fall weather running, and vegan deal hunting at Sprouts and Grocery Outlet.
And vegan takeout, the BLT from Zest Kitchen was delicious with crunchy, sweet, and smoky coconut bacon. So was kicky Thai green curry with tofu and brown rice takeout from a local Thai place. And more eating salads in between, haha.
Next up is getting through an election week, eek. Hope everyone has a good and safe week and the list is a bright spot.
