Whew, Friday is almost here. Pesto is awesome, right? It’s creamy, rich, savory, decadent, and has a lovely garlic kick.

Leela is not a happy camper after her vet appointment yesterday. Her sniffling cold has been hanging around for the last week, so to the vet she went to find out why. Turns out she has a sinus infection, got a shot, and has to take 4 pills a day for awhile now. Poor girl! […]

Ready for Thanksgiving yet? I’m not and really do not have a menu yet since we’ll be at a family members house. It will probably be a Trader Joe’s or Tofurky vegan roast with a couple of vegan sides, we’ll see! But it’s kind of nice to not stress about it this year, no crazy […]
