Saturday, January 22, 2011      4 comments

Today was another day of voluntary isolation. Though not as cold as yesterday, the temperature was not enticing me to go outside. I spent most of the morning finding more recipes for my vegan collection. I was hungry for potatoes for breakfast, ... Read more

Today was a day to stay inside. If I didn't already have so many leftovers, I would have baked and cooked to make the house even warmer. Alas, I have an embarassment of riches in my refrigerator and freezer. When I got up this morning the temper... Read more

After my busy day yesterday, I enjoyed having today as a free day. I just came in from shoveling. A plow went through the alley earlier, and there is a big berm of ice and snow blocking the drive to my garage. It was so cold my fingers started g... Read more

My day started with an 8 AM meeting. I got up at 6:30 AM because I hit my snooze too many times. Breakfast was oatmeal with golden raisins and brown sugar - on the go. I was running LATE, LATE, LATE. Despite showering and tea brewing times, I go... Read more

Today was a busy day. I didn't want to spend time cooking breakfast, so I heated a Morningstar Black Bean Burger and put it in an Arnold's Thin. It was very tasty. I almost forgot lunch, so it was just peanut butter toast and a banana. I pl... Read more

The day dawned on yet another overnight snowfall, only a couple of inches; and the temperature was warmer today. After shoveling, I went to one of the coops to get firm tofu and picked up a couple of other things. Today's breakfast was a re... Read more

I love to curl up with the Sunday paper and a cup of tea on cold winter mornings. That was my intention this morning, but I got sidetracked looking online for a pumpkin custard recipe. Since I was going to have the oven on for the stuffed shells... Read more

Today got off to a lazy start. I woke up early and decided to go back to sleep for a while. Well, I didn't wake up until almost 10! I guess I've caught up on my sleep! I also feel much, much better; so I must have finally gotten over the virus t... Read more

Today I spent much of the morning at a clinic for a scheduled annual exam. I was really impressed at how efficient the process was. Usually I have to sit around waiting, so I took a book. I never had a chance to open it. I was glad I had taken a... Read more

This morning I decided I wanted something different. I couldn't decide between sweet and savory until I spied a bag of Arrowhead Mills Organic Buckwheat Pancake and Waffle Mix in a cupboard. A quick glance at the ingredients verified it was egg ... Read more

This morning I woke up feeling better, but I am still a bit under the weather. I expect whatever this is will be out of my system by tomorrow. Not long ago, I would have eaten chicken noodle soup if I was ill. Somehow that doesn't sound at all a... Read more

Today was another lackluster day. I feel better today, but I have not fully recovered. Thank goodness for leftovers! For breakfast I had some millet with about a tablespoon of the duxelles. Lunch was a cup of the mushroom barley soup. Dinner was... Read more

This is a verse from Robert Burns' poem "To a Mouse" written in 1786. It tells of how he upturned a mouse's nest while ploughing a field and is an apology to the mouse. But, Mousie, thou art no thy lane [you aren't alone] In proving fore... Read more

Last night I started soaking a pound of black beans, so I started cooking them first thing this morning. Breakfast was leftover oatmeal. Yesterday I forgot I had that to grab for a quick breakfast, so it was a welcome treat this morning. I shove... Read more
