So, are you getting ready to create your holiday cards?! Or are you one of those people that have had them done and addressed for weeks now?? Hint…I’m not one of those early bird people. I’m still browsing through potential card photos to decide which one(s) I want to use. I feel like I have […]
A little while back, I was contacted by the good people of Organix South asking if I’d like to try and review a couple of their products. I LOVE this perk in the blogging world and honestly love to share products I’ve tried and love – especially if they can be a benefit to any […]
Some days, we really keep eating simple around our house…especially breakfast. Having tasty items available from the garden helps a lot, too. One of Pop’s (my hubby) favorite breakfasts are what he calls “Homestyle Breakfasts”. This basically means something hot, fresh, quick and tasty. For this breakfast, I simply added some coconut oil to a […]
Today, my Conscious Box came!! Do you subscribe to this program? I’m subscribed to the “vegan” version and I’m always so happy when it comes and I can sample new vegan snacks and products to see what’s out there. Most of the items that come each month are items I have NOT tried – which […]
Look at this delicious – and easy to prepare – rice dish I recently found at Costco! It’s made my Sukhi’s Gourmet Indian Foods, is vegan, organic and, most importantly, is DELICIOUS!! Most evenings, by the time I get home from work and working out, all I want are easy dishes to prepare for dinner. […]
Happy Meatless Monday! Happy Vegan MoFo 2013! Just happy HAPPY! Today I want to share the vegan lasagna recipe (well, kinda a recipe) that I made last weekend. When I say “kinda” a recipe it’s because most of the time I start with a recipe, but almost always I end up improvising due to a […]
Yep, vegans love to snack too!! One of my FAVORITE nut snacks is Mrs. May’s Almond Crunch!! So stinkin’ tasty!!! I love having a couple pieces – especially while sitting at my desk in the afternoons. They’re so satisfying and yummy! Mrs. May’s makes a ton of other tasty, vegan snacks too – check out […]
In following with my Vegan MoFo 2013 vegan shares…here’s my first office lunch this month. All the standards here – variants are usually what I add to the dish. Today though, I kept it super simple. Some salad and some cubed tofu a light dressing and…. a little watermelon – YUM! Sometimes I top […]
This past weekend (after another fun bike ride), Pops and I tried a “new” (to us) vegan restaurant in Mountain View, CA called Garden Fresh. What a delicious find….a wonderful vegan Chinese cuisine delight!! First, we began our meal with the Basil Moo Shu Rolls. These were served cold and were a perfect treat after […]
Happy Labor Day everyone! Aaahh how nice to have an extra “weekend” day. Today we’re having the kids over later for dinner and I’m making a vegan lasagna (which I will share photos and details of later). I used to make lasagna a lot, but haven’t in a while and this time instead of hunting […]
This year I’ve decided to give-it-a-go and participate in Vegan MoFo. What does that mean? …well, for the next month I will post a TON about being vegan…food, recipes, products, etc. AND it’s not just me posting throughout the month…many, many other very cool vegan bloggers will be posting a TON too – and I […]
Last week Pops and I took a mini trip down to Malibu and the Central Coast of CA (more on those stops later), so finding out today’s word for Susannah Conway’s August Break 2013 is “HOME” seems so appropriate. Returning home means we’re back with our little sweet potato – BUBBA! love this little stinker!
Ready for day 11 of Susannah Conway’s August Break 2013! The prompt today is PLAY!! Something Bubba is always ready for!! I think everyone needs a Frenchie to play ball with!
Day 10 of Susannah Conway’s August Break 2013! focuses on such a happy color…RED! Summertime red can truly mean watermelon!!! YUM! I also found this “red” photo that I took while visiting a shop in Pescadero a few weeks ago. I really love the color red…maybe that’s why the cabinets in my kitchen are painted that color! […]
Day 9 of Susannah Conway’s August Break 2013 - word of the day – TASTE! What could be yummier than the Summer cook-out tastes? My summer favorite…corn and black bean salad – with chopped peppers, tomatoes, red onions, a little olive oil and salt and pepper….yes, please! Raw veggie plates – pretty much a […]
WOW today’s prompt from Susannah Conway’s August Break 2013 was a bit tough for me….Diagonal! hmmm…browsing through my pictures, this one above is what I came up with – a shot from Thailand, near the border into Myanmar – in the “Golden Triangle”. Kinda works, right? How about this one…notice the angle of the streets centerline: […]
Ready for Day 5 of Susannah Conway’s August Break? Today, our prompt is “Close-Up” and I just happen to have these photos of a little squirrel eating some snacks out on our back deck. He’s a hungry little guy – in need of a manicure! He’s really enjoying that piece of tortilla…and, suprisingly, he’s not being bothered […]
Here we are at Day 4 of Susannah Conway’s August Break 2013 and the word for the day is LOVE! AND who doesn’t know how much I LOVE this little French wonder boy?!?! I have so many goofy names for him it would be hard to fit them all in here…but the all-time favorite (and one […]
You’ve probably guessed by now…Susannah Conway’s August Break day 3 prompt is Yellow is also my mother’s favorite color! AND a sure sign of summertime is the availability of fresh summer yellow corn! Happy Summer!
Here we are with Day 2 of Susannah Conway’s August Break 2013! Today’s theme “Circles” fits perfectly with these photos I recently took of Pops in his Scout Patch jacket. How cute is he in this jacket his mom made for him when he was a young scout? She sewed all the patches on herself! He […]
Sooooooo…I’m sure you’ve noticed I’ve been a tad bit of a blog slacker lately. Trust me, this is not due to having nothing to say! It’s truly due to having no time to write!! Since it is Summertime, I guess this can be expected. (excuses, excuses, I know) To try to keep things hopping and […]
I’m hoping that everyone’s new year as been a very HAPPY one so far!! I’m (kinda) ready to get back into the swing of things – I will definitely admit this little break I’ve taken has felt very good and rejuvenating. I’m thinking this blog might be headed in a whole bunch of new directions […]
Have you missed me?? WOW, I’ve missed blogging!! Sorry I’ve been away so much and, truly, I don’t see that changing much until after the holidays…sorry!! A quick check-in… Yes, our Florida trip was AMAZING and I have tons of photos to go through still and to share: Now we’re getting ready to leave in […]
In case you’ve missed my Facebook obsession with using PicMonkey to create spooky Halloween photos, I thought I’d share them here. I seriously could spend all day creating these – well, if I had all day. But, you don’t need all day because you can create them quickly too! Even Bubba got in on the […]
