I haven’t updated in awhile, sorry! I haven’t even been that busy, I think it was just a case of blogger’s block or something.
Anyways, what have I been up to lately?
I started a small garden! I planted Spring Onions, Basil, Cilantro, Mint and Chives, all of which, once they sprout, will be housed in pots on my deck (My yard is rather shady so I need them to be able to ‘follow’ the sun). I’ll post photos once they sprout. I’d like to grow some other vegetables aside from the onions, but for now I’m going to see how these turn out.
Speaking of sprouts, know what I’ve been loving lately? Sprouts! I bought a small bag of organic Spring Salad Mix Sprouts at the farmer’s market last weekend and they have been wonderful on my tomato sandwiches. They’re so good for you too, especially broccoli sprouts which are full of antioxidants. I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to give sprouts a chance.
I’ve been fighting off a cold this week and Veganomicon’s Creamy Tomato Soup has been ever so nourishing and comforting. I blogged about it previously here.
Last night, my mother and I ate out at my favourite restaurant here in Halifax (which I’ve blogged about a couple times here before, ha ha). I got the Cajun Tofu dish (my favourite!) which is tofu smothered in a hot cajun style sauce served with brown rice and steamed kale with some sort of delicious sauce. My mother got a slice of Coconut-Cashew-Banana Pie which was so heavenly we got another slice to go, pictured below:
That is all for now, I promise the next post will be sooner than this one was!
