Snapshots from a happy life

I looked to the skies a lot last week. Unsurprising, considering it was a really tough week and I needed some reassurance from the universe. Judging from this array? I got it.

blogging & watching football, on friday night: my favorite thing

I'm still planning on being around here more. There's only so much of myself that I have left to give, though. I spent about half of my weekend sleeping (12 hours Friday night, 10 hours Saturday night, plus naps) and also, running (6.2 miles over the course of the weekend). And eating. So much eating!  We ate every single meal at home this weekend, so beginning on Thursday night, it was home cooked meals 3x per day, for 3 days, and I was constantly either cooking, preparing to cook, or cleaning up after cooking. We ate like kings. Black bean soup, potatoes every which way (homemade "potato chips," hash browns, etc), tofu scramble, whole wheat rigatoni with marinara-eggplant sauce made from scratch, pancakes, chocolate chip cookies, tacos ... the list goes on. We seriously ate our way through the weekend, and it was so good. I have recipes to share, soon, featuring many links to "friends of amber & scott" who provided the inspiration. Many thanks in particular to Drea, who gave us that incredible chocolate chip cookie recipe! They really are the best vegan chocolate chip cookies I've ever had, and Scott loved them too!

OK, so we had a really great weekend. Yay! Its about time. And tomorrow is Scott's birthday, so I'm of course trying to be a bad influence and get him to go out for vegan junk food tonight ... we'll see how that goes. If all else fails, we have a blueberry cobbler (vegan) (from whole foods) to cook tonight. Happy Monday, internets!
