Reason #793 that it’s summer:
It’s that time of year again! Well actually these two lovely ladies are the first of my friends to be getting married, and I received their invitations on the same day!
Congrats Tanya and Erin! Can’t wait to celebrate with you and your future husbands! 🙂
Aside from wedding bells, the rest of my day has been alright. I cut out of work a bit earlier than normal as my ankle started to throb so I headed home for some ice ice baby!
Following my icing stint I hemmed and hawed over what to make msyelf for dinner. Forget the fact that it’s about 30 degrees with the humidity, tonight I was craving one of my ultimate comfort foods: mac n cheese. However, I came across a few different vegan recipes for this delectable dish and figured I try one of them out. I opted for Angela’s recipe, but decided to halve it cuz I definitely did not need 8 servings! I also left out the tahini as my kitchen is not currently running any and added a bit more lemon juice and garlic. I think next time though, I’ll want to add the tahnini or maybe some hummus as it definitely felt like it was missing a li’l somethin somethin but for sure I’ll make it again.
I’m really diggin the fact that there are so many interesting dairy-free alternatives out there. I’m not sure I’ll convert 100% but it’s fun experimenting and learning new techniques! I served it up with a pretty summery spinach salad with tomato, bell pepper and fresh blueberries with a lemon vinaigrette.
Oh and a glass of my red wine from the weekend, can’t let it go to waste 😉
For dessert I figured I’d spoil myself with a bit of melted dark chocolate onto toast with honey, random but oh so good!
I’ve just finished another stint of icing and now I think I’m gonna go read in bed so I’m not tempted to do anything crazy such as Yoga. It’s only been 2 days and I’m already chomping at the bit to exercise 😦 Oh well, whatcha gonna do?
On a side note- a very intense rain storm just poured in! I love when it rains at night (and I don’t have to be anywhere) I find it so peaceful. Maybe it will help me get a better sleep tonight 😉
Have a good night!
