Coconut Curry Dressing

IMG_6028

I miss the long weekend already, it was quiet and relaxing and somewhat productive. Shadow slept most of it during the days so he could run up and down the halls screaming at 2am. I spent some time studying for an IT certification exam with a happy chihuahua in my lap. And ate this simple […]

Eggplant Quinoa

The drought here is scary, lots of water conservation warnings and disturbing images of dried up rivers and lakes. We’ve put our garden plans on hold until conditions improve to conserve water, so we have a lot of dry dirt pots in our backyard with no plants. Skipper has decided they make good beds. We’ve […]

Yesterday was a packed day of going to the gym, farmer’s market, seeing Guardians of the Galaxy (awesome!), and attended a Vegan Wine & Cheese Mixer at The Plum Cafe in Sacramento. For $15, we got to taste a lotĀ of vegan wines and artisan vegan cheese from Miyoko Schinner. There was […]
