Boo on Sunday night already, two day weekends are not long enough. We’ve had my sister’s cat all week for excitement here. She was picked up yesterday which I think Miko is relieved about. But not before fully exploring and claiming our house. She favored Miko’s green couch which he was not thrilled about and sat outside the shower waiting for us to get out so she could jump in and investigate.
I am trying to get back into running more and this week was perfect weather for after work runs where I spotted a pelican in one of the neighborhood ponds, a rare sight so inland.
We had a nice Memorial Day at home with my parents where Miko taunted the kitty who wanted to join use on the patio. And he seems happy to have us back to himself.
I am still working through a large decision and been in a fog this week, so more simple eats with a salad using greens from our garden, Impossible Burger with veggie fries, corn and salad for Memorial Day, simple tofu stir fry, and more salad.
There was also a lazy, convenience meal from Grocery Outlet – a Gardein Orange Beefless Bowl.
And it was pretty good and appetizing looking for a frozen meal!
I got out to lunch with my mom and sisters to a place I’ve never been to before, Swabbies on the River. It was an adventure getting there on the river near the airport, but the weather was perfect to enjoy this eclectic, pirate-themed, outdoor restaurant on the water.
I was a little bummed looking at the menu online before and seeing a lack of vegan options. But turns out they have veggie burgers they can use in vegan tacos, sweet potato fries, and chips and salsa. Not exactly healthy fare, but appropriate fun bar food for drinking and live music I guess.
And here I am back at the Sunday blues looking at another interesting week ahead. Hopefully a good week and a great week for you. So, to the list.
- Best vegan handbags. I’m not cool enough for most of these.
- This vegan mac n’ cheese bowl looks worth making.
- Mmmm, vegan dessert recipes.
- Why vegan ice cream is everywhere now.
- Vegan truffle recipes.
- Best vegan comforters.
- A review of Juicy Marbles Vegan Steaks.
- Mindset shift to deal with Overwhelm.
What a beautiful cat! I love cats. They are smart and interesting! My daughter can’t stand dogs and is a cat girl all the way. I guess that’s just how it’s going to be. Drooling over those sweet potato fries. I have been craving sweet potato fries forever now.
She is and she totally knows it, lol! Yes, now I am craving more sweet potato fries! :-)
I hear you on the weekends. Even if we got a four day work week, it wouldn’t directly affect me because I don’t have a “conventional” job, but I think everyone else would be so much happier for it. I definitely support that movement!
And I support all the brilliant food you’re making and eating! It makes me feel incredibly boring right now with so many repeats and leftovers.
Me too! I am facing burnout like a lot after the pandemic, too much work and not much fun, lol. Thanks on the food! :-)
