This weekend was a long weekend in BC and I was so grateful for the extra day without stress and responsibilities. I needed it so, so badly. James and I spent 80% of our weekend in our track pants and it was glorious.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, Scandal is consuming all of my free time and my every thought when I’m not watching it. I was actually at Target today and I was suspiciously eyeing everyone around me to see if I was under some kind of government surveillance. I’m telling you, its consuming me.
Speaking of Target, all Canadian Target stores are closing and are currently in liquidation. It’s the most devastating thing to happen to me in a long time. I know, #firstworldproblems. I went to the makeup aisle in hopes of scoring some deals, and was greeted with this. Empty shelves and no produce to choose from..rude.
In other news, in addition to spending the majority of the weekend lounging x 10 and hiking, I did a little cooking. The other day I picked up the Oh She Glows vegan cookbook from Angela’s blog. I have read her blog for years and can’t believe that I didn’t have her cookbook yet. I was flipping through it and the Indian Lentil Cauliflower Soup really caught my eye because we had all of the ingredients already. that’s such a rare occurrence in our lives that I have to jump on the opportunity when it does. I made this recipe on Sunday night for James and I, and it was the perfect rainy night meal that was really filling but healthy. I subbed chopped spinach for chopped kale. I try to sneak kale in whenever possible because rumour has it it’s good for us, or something like that.
Don’t judge me, the one in the cookbook looked so much better but it tasted amazing nonetheless. We won’t be eating vegan everyday because cheese and meat are kind of important to us, but I could definitely get used to more meals along these lines.
Well, it’s back to the grind tomorrow morning. I have a very early one ahead of me, the party’s over.
Did you have a long weekend?
Have you tried any vegan recipes?
