Remarkably I had forgotten just how nutty spring can be around here. Tuesday saw hail, heavy rain, sunshine and wind, all within a few hours. My eating patterns (or lack thereof) have been much the same - anything from hot soup and warm muffins to smoothies. My Monday day of eats looked like this - started off with a chia seed banana berry smoothie for breakfast.
And then something warm - a cup of decaf green tea and a delicious banana nut muffin that I had made from a recipe in Thug Kitchen: The Official Cookbook: Eat Like You Give a F*ck.
I had no leftovers to heat up for lunch, so I whipped up the quick creamy avocado pasta recipe from The Oh She Glows Cookbook. Nothing like a big bowl of pasta to make things feel right.
With many vegan cookbooks in my review pile, I had spent some time browsing them on the weekend. I encouraged my daughter to make brownies from Vegan Junk Food: 225 Sinful Snacks that are Good for the Soul as I called out instructions from the couch. She did an amazing job and the brownies were delicious. I had one for my Monday afternoon snack (and trust me there weren't many left at that point).
For dinner, I baked some smoked tofu in a teriyaki sauce. I also made fried rice using a mix of frozen veggies.
I snacked on a couple of No-Bake Double Chocolate Crunch Peanut Butter Snack Bites straight out of the freezer later.
Not a Monday dish, but I wanted to share a look at this delicious soup my husband made a few days back. A veggie bean soup with cauliflower. I love cauliflower in soup!
