Okay, another week, another chance for some fun eats. This week we had a bet that we could eat yummy stuff every day without actually going grocery shopping because we’re such massive food hoarders. Okay, maybe not that, but I have a tendency to shop and buy stuff that I “plan” to make, and then don’t and then buy something else.
Anyway, the week started out with some Sweet and Sour lentils that were just amazing! Loaded with carrots and pineapple, I could eat this (and did as leftovers for lunch) for days! It was largely inspired by this recipe, but modified for what I had on hand and to increase the veg content.
Other eats include smoothies, salads, stir-fry’s, and easy eats.
D’s bday was yesterday, and his meal was a special request – though comfort food at it’s finest. Including mushrooms, mashers, gravy, stuffing, and salad. And cake, of course! This was a triple layer chocolate cake with chocolate malt frosting!
For V-day breakfast, D went out to Yorgo’s to get me a vegan breakfast burrito! Tofu scramble, Diaya cheese, potatoes, tempeh sausage, and red onion. I added a ton of hot sauce and loved it!
I’ll be honest, only one run this week. It’s so cold, and I no longer have access to a treadmill. So – lots of yoga and a few workout DVD’s at home. Not as much fun, but better than freezing!
Another week gone by, and it was pretty normal. Lot’s of work and studying and as much family time as I could get. I’m heading out for a week at the end of the month for a work conference (Vegas…I know….suffering, right?!), so being home is where I want to be this week.
D pulled some major muscle in his neck and ended up at urgent care and then mostly immobilized for a few days. He’s a lot better, but not healed all the way yet.
We’re on a chess playing kick the past few days. M beat me in a game. I beat R (barely). And then the kids did their own little tourney last night.
Friday I went to see The Big Short and loved it. Wow, I totally want to see it again! Other than that, we’ve watched Forest Gump, Indiana Jones (finished out the series), and James Bond!
And here are the obligatory pictures. Beginning with how Ginny doesn’t want me to study…
And miscellaneous fun!
Have a great week, and I’ll post again soon (ish!)
