My first lunch out after being home-bound for three days was at Elevation Burger. Veggie Burger $3.59, Fries $2.59. Not the best deal compared to Red Robin's Veggie Burger, but the Cinnamon/Orange Iced Tea was excellent.
Dinner was homemade Vegetable Soup, made with all fresh vegetables procured today.
Dessert was several of the Brandy Pralines that I had scarfed up the day after Christmas at TJMaxx. $5.99/box for half off --Score!
Dinner wasChickpea Cutletswith Mustard Sauce (Vegenaisse & Grainy Mustard 50/50) and Roasted Acorn Squash stuffed with leftover Wild Rice.
I tried to veganize a cake recipe yesterday by replacing four eggs with ground Flaxseed and water. The result was all tough on the edges and sunken in the middle. The Orange Frosting was too runny. Still tasted okay though.
I can handle an award every now and then, but yesterday, Jenny bestowed on me a 'Four Fun Facts' Thing to fill out. I'm grateful, believe me, but these memes take away precious time from my favorite TV shows like Celeb Rehab and Real Housewives. One thing I've learned from the past is that I do not do well on these memes. My 'humor' is often misunderstood/not appreciated.
This is the 'Four Fun Facts' that is being passed on:
Four TV Shows:
Four Things I am Passionate About
Four Words/Phrases I use too much
Four things I've learned from the past
Four things I'm looking forward to
Four things I love about Winter
I'm tagging Michelle1 next simply because I am looking forward to hearing what TV shows she watches (and she appears to have the free time to do this).
Mr. SV & I were both home from work today due to icy road conditions, so for breakfast, I made the Banana Pecan Pancakes from Sarah Kramer's 2011 Calendar (month of January). Dianne already beat me to the punch on blogging about this calendar and my story is the same: Bianca turned me on to the calendar and now I'm going to be making a new recipe every month. I will not flip ahead to future months/recipes. Mr. SV & I thought these pancakes were great.
