We had fun, too. It was nice to catch up with our friends. It was the first time since the middle of December.
She’s still adjusting to being alone, I think.
Everybody is always so nice, and they keep their stores clean and well stocked. It must be a good place to work, too, because we’ve known some people at our store that have been there since we can remember.
So far so good – I started a batch of sauerkraut and made my wrist less hurty – something released in there when I was scooping the litter box. It’s weird how the calendar can make things feel like a new start.
We had a client here in our office today, and wanted to get pizza for lunch. Trav told us there was a special for two medium two topping pizzas – what would we like? Well, we must have missed the two topping part because as he was naming off veggies, we kept saying, “Yes, yes, yes! Sounds good. Yes!” And by the time we were done loading up our pizza, it was no longer the special and our one pizza cost more than the two mediums. Oops! It was delicious, though!!
My wrist still hurts a bit and is rather stiff, but I got some exercises to help with those things.
Trav is such a good husband – he shares everything with me! Including his illness hahah.
Facebook has this thing where you can ask for a donation in honor of your birthday.
He’s been sick the last couple of days… staying in bed sleeping. Even though he’s just in the other room, I miss him! Happy to have him back.
Who thinks up all these crazy “holidays” ??
One of my friends on Facebook started a group where we try a new vegan recipe every week. So far we’ve had black bean burgers and chipotle chili, both of which were excellent.
Black Bean Burgers
2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 onion, minced
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 carrots, shredded
1/2 cup quick oats
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste
Buns (we did not use vegan buns, but you can!)
Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a pan. Combine onions, garlic, salt, and pepper and cook until onions are translucent. Add carrots, cumin, coriander, chili powder, and cayenne pepper until carrots are tender. Remove pan from heat.
In a bowl, mash the beans and then add the contents of the pan along with the soy sauce and quick oats. Mix and form four patties. Place in freezer for 30 minutes to set. Cook patties on a pan coated in cooking spray over medium heat, flipping halfway.
Use patties to create your dream veggie burger.
The herbs came back to life in the fall! Now they’re growing really well.
Dad & Michael have their traditional “making of the dinner rolls” for special occasions, Greg with his chili & sausage, and Kelly with her beautiful kitchen & outdoor oven. Michael is always trying something new and I like to hear about what he’s doing.
