Well, I made it through humpday – I guess that’s an accomplishment? Today was another long day. And the gloom didn’t help – it’s gray and rainy here again!
I broke into one of my favorite bars this afternoon –
Yup, they’re green. And they’re good.
I don’t know how Amazing Grass makes these bars taste so good! Especially considering they’re vegan and raw – I don’t understand how the chocolate layer can be so…amazing. I’m trying to ration what I have ;)
I had a fun dinner on the menu for tonight, thanks to Real Simple.
Of course, I made a few changes, but not too many tonight! This recipe was so simple – I loved it.
- I used 2 carrots instead of one
- I squeezed in some fresh lime juice for the cabbage/carrot mixture
- I added chopped scallions + cilantro for garnishes
- Hot chile garlic paste = necessary when having dumplings or potstickers
Nick had seconds of this meal, too! I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad recipe from Real Simple. And this was no exception.
I’m working from home tomorrow so I don’t need to pack my lunch tonight.
The only thing on my agenda is enjoying my awesome dinner, watching the finale of ANTM, and Top Chef ;)
Oh, and guess who’s going vegan for tomorrow? Me! I know, right? I’m not even vegetarian!
