Thursday, December 29th

The usual take-to-work breakfast...
A cup of Ribollita...
and a Tossed Spinach Salad from Sweet Green for lunch. (Followed by a 320 Calorie bag of Fritos from the vending machine. That machine is not my friend).
The last of the Clean Food Tofu & Green Beans for dinner. If only my house were as clean as this food.
Half a slice of Chocolate Hazelnut Cake from Vegan Treats via Loving Hut for dessert.
Still imagining the Quorn company sitting around and evaluating my blog and then deeming it not worthy of their burger giveaway. Yet, mentally, I'm feeling healthier than usual. What Up With That?

The salad and cake look especially appealing. As for the Quorn people, think of them as the fake meat equivalent of that rotten band from the 90's, Korn. Does that help?

Isobelle said...

HA! I used to love the band Korn when I was 13 or so. But if Stacy is trying to say that those Quorn burgers are bad anyway and you don't need them to send you any free one's - then I agree.

Yummy look'n grub today! Soupz are my favourite

Where's your booze been at?

Ingrid said...

A very colorful day! How was the ribollita?

The Quorn company definitely missed out by not bringing you on board! :)

I appreciate your reference to SNL with the last sentence.

Whoa that soup looks SOOOOO good! and the salad looks very bright and yummy. The cake looks and sounds delicious as usual. I am so with you about pondering how to get samples for review. Let me know if you crack the code ;)

The salad and the BREAD look awesome. As for vending machine food, I've always just sort of looked right past it, assuming nothing in there is vegan anyway. You can't even see the ingredients! No risktaking here.

Michelle said...

Have I told you that I enjoy seeing your breakfast. :o)

As for Quorn....who needs their processed burgers anyway.

About Maggie enjoying the new kitchen...she's not enjoying it very much because we still aren't finished, therefore that takes time away from her. She does NOT like to be on the couch alone. We took Christmas weekend off from working on it. Hopefully in another week we will be finished, and I will post pics.

Hey Now!!!!

Stacy, I'm sure your words are meant to be comforting. Thanks.

Isotope, just pondering how the decision was made on who to offer the burgers to. Soup is good food.

VV, the booze is always here. Been cleaning out the wine rack of all higher quality stuff I've received over the past year. I don't post it cuz it sounds hoity toity. 'Enjoyed a bottle of Coumbia-Crest Merlot tonight with my Field Roast'. See, boring.

Ingrid, alas, the Ribollita was mediocre, but it would probably be great if one tried making it at home. Love Kenan Thompson. He hardly did that skit at all this past season that I even remember.

VaVa, the thing is -- I don't want to review free samples, I just want the opportunity to turn down the offer of free samples. That's what I'm after. If ever I'm offered a free sample, I'll surely send them your way.

FF, yeah, the bread was quite good. There's the gross Hostess and Cheezits in the vending machine, but most of the other stuff is vegan -- Twizzlers, Nuts, Fritos, Oreos, Pretzels. You're right, probably best not to look.

Michelle2, change can be difficult even for us big folks. Looking forward to seeing the end result of all your hard work.

Blessed Mama, the Hazelnut Cake is right up your alley. Not like a 'Happy Birthday Jesus Coconut and Caramel Cake', but very indulgent nonetheless.

How did I miss this post??? I've got to get with the program.

That cake sounds quite nice. Hazelnut rocks.
