Hunger Games anyone??
I'm almost finished with Mockingjay, Book 3 in the trilogy. I have devoured (ha!) all three books. I love love LOVE them. I probably annoy Preston when I suddenly yell "NO!!" when someone dies or make little sounds of frustration when something happens that I don't like. I can't help myself!!
By the way....George (our crazy Russian Blue cat) has asked to be called "Cat"niss Everdeen from now on. Yes, she asked. What??? Don't your animals talk to you?
Sunday lunch was at one of my favorite places - Freebirds World Burrito. This place brings back happy college memories for me and also provides great atmosphere and yummy food. Preston and I already enjoyed eating there but since I decided to eat vegan it has become a favorite Sunday lunch place because we can both eat exactly like we want.
Preston can have meat. He loves their nachos - I do too but since I steer clear of cheese most of the time they aren't a good choice for me.
I found this beauty outside of the restaurant.
Confession: I have been remiss lately about planning our meals for the week. This is something that makes me feel SO much less stressed on a daily basis. I will admit (sadly) that I have focused so much more on my own meals lately - poor Preston. I feel awful about it. So I planned a yummy one for him on Sunday. Hamburgers!!
Oh wait, I'm vegan. What the heck???
Of course there are alternatives - of COURSE! I planned on making these Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers that I found (and pinned) but I honestly just wasn't feeling like I wanted to make the effort. And I have "veggie" patties in the refrigerator that I bought a few weeks ago at Costco - but didn't want those either. I found Preston a very yummy looking "Cowboy Burger" at the meat counter - complete with bacon and cheese inside. So I wandered the aisles trying to decide what to do for myself. I knew I wanted sweet potato fries (YUMMMMM) and found these.
Not only are these ALWAYS delicious but these are new to my store. Crinkle cut AND seasoned with sea salt and pepper. Glorious! AND there was a $2 coupon for....
Soy Free Vegenaise from Follow Your Heart. Little Sister bought this for me to try and OMG. I loved it!! Preston even tried it and said it "tastes just like the real thing". That's a HUGE compliment in my opinion.
Dinner was delicious and I think I made peace with myself about somewhat ignoring my wonderful husband's food needs. I have several yummy meals planned for him this week too.
Question: Who wears this shirt and then chooses to curl up on Daddy's lap???
Whatever. He knows who feeds him.
Hugs & kisses....
