I am one lucky girl!!!!
This afternoon (well, evening) I arrived back at my apartment in Orlando after a way too massive W.F. grocery shop to find an amazon.com box waiting for me!! Miss VeggieGirl was SO sweet to order me HER favorite vegan baking book, My Sweet Vegan! Oh my goodness—does it ever look wonderful! I’m so excited to relax in bed just reading it tonight and getting inspiration! Thank you times a million, VeggieGirl!!!!!!! I love it!!!!!!!
But let’s backtrack….this afternoon it was so nice to lay around in the sun with Ryan and be totally lazy! Before I headed back to my apartment, I went over to my parent’s house for a while to hang out with my mom and dad and snacked on a banana + pb. I went straight to W.F. (whole foods!) upon arriving back in town and, first and foremost, got dinner! I knew I couldn’t shop hungry (I would buy the whole store) and it was soo nice outside! I got buffalo garlic tofu, brown rice, a couple roasted garlic potatoes, steamed veggies and 2 of my favorite sickly sweet plantains. I didn’t end up finishing all the tofu or the veggies, but I def. did eat those yummy plantains! 🙂
I had sort of a major grocery shop….I needed a lot of “basics” because I’m sort of in the process of redoing my kitchen to be more cruelty-free and that involved getting rid of some stuff and replacing it with better stuff! I think most of the stuff in my groceries picture is pretty self-explanatory but ask me if you want to know what something is and you can’t tell! The highlight of my shop are these WONDERFUL vegan peanut butter cookies! They are these little homemade cookies that come individually wrapped and I got them to take to my new night classes for a little mid-bake “treat” since I will have to eat an early dinner and won’t get home at night till close to midnight! These cookies (I just ate one!) are sooooo good!!! They are fruit juice sweetened and aren’t “too” sweet…just the way I like my pb cookies….you can really taste the chunky peanut butter! Each cookie is 130 calories, which is perfect for a nighttime sweet 🙂 Try to find them if you can!!
Thanks again, VeggieGirl!! I can hardly wait to start baking from this!! I’m so blessed and honored to have so many wonderful friends all over the country! (and Canada and Africa, too!!)
