Happy New Year! But I am sad that we lost Betty White just before. What a legend and such a talented icon. I started watching Golden Girls again yesterday on Hulu and wowed at how edgy of a show it was and holds up today. It’s been a relaxing and cold long weekend here, Miko has been very cuddly and not interested in spending too much time outside in the freezing temps.
We have been putting together Legos starting with a fun ice skating set to start our Lego Holiday village display collection for next year. Then onto the Nintendo Entertainment System that will be a consuming project for awhile for us – good thing we got a bigger dining room table!
I tried to get to a healthier place with eats this week with salads, sautés, simple noodle soups, and a turmeric vegan scramble, but there is much room for improvement in the New Year.
Ron discovered Sprouts has their own brand of vegan wild mushroom girasoli pasta now much cheaper than Kite Hill and was a fan of the mushroom flavor and texture, maybe even liked it better.
We ended the year simply with takeout from Pho Vegan Asian Cuisine one evening and simple tofu stir fry.
Before heading to a small NYE party at my sister’s house that featured great tofu and black bean vegan enchiladas her husband made. And toasted with vegan Avaline Sparkling Wine.
It’s been a pretty and frosty start to the New Year so far making it perfect for enjoying the fireplace and movies indoors while taking down decorations and making a big pot of simple veggie soup for weekday leftovers.
Back to work tomorrow, I’m ready – maybe. We saw Spider-Man: No Way Home in the theater yesterday, our first time back in a theater since the pandemic started and it was a good movie experience and nice to feel a little more normal. Maybe 2022 will be more normal, who knows! I hope you had a great New Year’s and ready to charge into 2022 with this list.
