Today I have so much to talk about, that I’ve created a whole new category of posts: Monday Mish-Mash. First up, I am featured in a guest post for the lovely Tania Frechette, yoga teacher extraordinaire. You will note that it is my first guest post ever, so not really knowing what on earth to write about, I started at the beginning: how to start down the path of a healthy lifestyle. Tania has a great blog, full of healthy living and yoga tips. Check it out!
Next up: Our family is currently on baby watch, as The Husband’s cousin Katie went to the hospital this morning to be induced. This is the first of the next generation, and everyone is so excited. Good luck Katie and Aaron, I’m sending good thoughts for a speedy and healthy delivery!!!
Saturday I attended a reading as part of the Ottawa Writer’s Festival with my friend Karen at our old hang-out spot, The Manx. The Manx is known for their great food, and while their vegan options are limited, they are very accomodating. I ordered the Chicken Wrap, with tofu substituted and minus the mayonnaise, and half fries, half salad.
Inside the wrap (which I had already taken a bite of before I remembered to take a picture of it) was their delicious smoky tofu, baby greens, guacamole, tomatoes and sesame dressing. Mmmmmm…..
Finally, I just had to show you last night’s dinner because it was so good and so fast (anyone seeing a pattern here?). Steph made a tasty stir fry using basmati rice, broccoli, fried tofu, carrots, onions and tons of ginger.
Then I decided we needed a little treat since it was Sunday night and all (why do I always need to justify my sweet tooth?!). So I used my old go-to cookbook, How it all vegan, and whipped up some vegan brownies. The recipe in that book is amazing, so fast and only one mixing bowl! They did take a bit longer to cook because I didn’t have the right pan, but other than frustrating Steph, it was worth the wait!
Don’t forget to lick the bowl clean after making brownies.
Dear new neice or nephew: I promise to make you these brownies if you come out soon, Love Auntie Sarah.
