Boston Thoughts/Prayers, LOTS of Food/Recipes, Furkids, Updates, More
Since my full-time job is media-related I have been seeing and hearing a lot of info about what happened and is happening and continues to unfold. My continued thoughts and prayers are with everyone during this time.
My blog has been quiet the last few days not only as a tribute (moment of silence) but because I have been following the stories surrounding this tragedy.
Another food my husband and I have been eating quite a bit lately is Bruschetta. Since cutting out store-bought Garlic Bread since going near Vegan I have either done my own Garlic Bread OR, more recently, done my own Bruschetta. Dale really likes this! I'm VERY happy about that because it's easy to make and it's vegan! For this I chopped up Tomato, Onion, added in some Basil, Wildtree Italian Seasoning, Garlic, and Balsamic Dipping/Oil.
Here's another product I have been very excited about lately! It's the Heritage Blend from Nature's Healthy Choice! As you can see this blend has two types of Quinoa, Rice, Amaranth, and is Gluten Free.
What I did here is - I added some Black Beans, Corn, Diced Tomatoes, and Wildtree Chipotle Lime Rub. It was VERY tasty! This is a very versatile product and I'm eager to try more dishes with it SOON!
I really LOVE the nutrition of this product but also the texture and the chewiness it provides!
For this sauce I used: 1 and a half C Almond Milk, 2 teaspoons of light Miso, 2 teaspoons of raw organic honey, 2 T Chives, 1/2 teaspoons of Curry Powder, and about 4 T of Potato Flakes (as a thickener).
I had a nice walk today, too! The weather has been much more FAIR lately and I had to go to the court house which is several blocks away from where I work.
Suzie (lower right corner) is USUALLY the one who likes to jump up on the back of things like chairs and sofas. I don't overly worry about her doing this because she has a proven track record of balance and accuracy. However, last night, Paco decided he was going to jump up on the back of the chair and I was surprised as well as nervous! Ever since he's been diagnosed with 'sloppy knees' we've been watching his jumping and climbing on things! He usually DOESN'T go up on the back of things - at least we try and make it so he doesn't. As I look at this photo, now, it does make me giggle, tho, their facial expressions, and such.
I think I will stop here for today - but I do have LOTS of other things to share! More new-to-me products, health updates, and more! How are you doing - by the way!?
