A New Love

This morning started out not so great.  I threw all my ingredients into the blender for my smoothie- 1/2 banana, blueberries, vanilla basmati rice milk, ground flax and a packet of Vanilla Rice Protein powder, pressed the grind button, and just a little whining sound came out.  BOO I tried just about everything, and it still didn’t work 😦  So I had to whip out the clunky old food processor, haha and scraped what I could out of the blender jar, and made it that way.  What a mess, I ended up running late so the smoothie had to go into a good ‘ol Dixie cup, and brought it to work.  The combination of ingredients was really good though!

Coffee break at work was……. a

Peanut Butter Larabar!!!!

We can’t buy this here, but it is now hands-down my favorite flavor, with Banana Bread as the runner-up.  Lunch was roast-garlic hummus on Ezekial bread with romaine lettuce and tomato slices, and two clemmies.

Supper was some defrosted Veggie Spaghetti Sauce served on Kamut Somen Noodles (so good) and a side salad made with baby spinach, sliced almonds, dried cranberries with a homemade dressing using organic canola oil, diced garlic, balsamic vinegar, maple syrup and s&p.

Dessert was a big brownie from the other night, and a mug of Stash Organic Christmas Tea.

Last night I got some christmas presents wrapped, while watching The Santa Clause, and today I finished up my projects that I’m giving to people as gifts!  Well, some with their gift, you know what I mean.  And tried this new snack- which is sweet and crunchy, vegan, wheat-free, soy-free etc.!

This is my “tree” I made a couple years ago.  I gathered fallen branches from the trees out front, spray painted them a silvery-white shade, sprinkled them with glitter, and added a string of mini Christmas lights!  It’s starting to look kinda rough (the glitter mostly fell of, the paint is fading, a couple branches have been snapped off coming out of the attic) but still so pretty.


I think I might hit the hay early tonight, which is weird. Good Night !
