After work my parents and I went to Sweet Tomatoes for lunch. My Mom had a coupon. I used to really love Sweet Tomatoes, but it is defiantly a better place to eat for vegetarians, not vegans. Granted I am only 97% vegan these days (we will save that for another post), but almost every thing has dairy! All of the soups had cream, and I did try that barley split pea that was mighty tasty. I had never had split pea before. It always grossed me out...
When I got home I cleaned my room for awhile. I found some cash and a few books I hadnt seen in awhile. Score! One of the books was The Urban Vegan, not one I have read cover to cover but I did flip through it and found a recipe for spinach pesto. I just bought a ton of fresh spinach so I figured I would give it a go. It was tasty, only 6 cloves of garlic to 3 cups of spinach was too much! I ended up using 9 cups of spinach and more nuts. Guess what I put it on for lunch tomorrow... Thats right, a wrap! Cant wait!
I was texting with someone the other day and he told he he counldnt afford being a vegan. This news shocked me. I feel like I save money, yeah sometimes I splurge on fancy veg or an amazing frozen pizza from Amy's but beans, veg and rice are pretty cheap. This made me start thinking about how much money I am spending on food. So I have decided to figure out how much I spend on an average day and week. Anyone care to guess?
Last time I had Thai food: I know its been over a week, but I dont remember exactly. Scary...
People I hadnt seen in a long time: 7. Most were at work. Awesome!
Level of excitement for one of my favorite lady's birthday parties tomorrow: 90% I just hope they dont make me sing karaoke... Much. :)
Create: Winter Spinach Pesto+much more spinach!
