Super Broccoli Soup


I’m so happy tomorrow is Friday, I’m looking forward to rest and fun after this work week. And catching up on laundry, eek! Miko has been cuddling up to hubby a lot this week looking for play time, he gets restless and bored with us working all day. I wish I could take Miko to work, […]

Spicy Peanut Dressing


At Whole Foods over the weekend, I impulse bought a quinoa starter plant to add to our garden. It looks like a weed, I would never have guessed it produces such a hearty grain. From what I’ve been reading, we’re not gonna get much from it and it will only grow about 2′ tall. But […]

Weekend List with Cowspiracy


Ah Sunday, our last bit of weekend freedom before going back to work tomorrow. I had a lazy and peaceful morning reading and catching up on office stuff with lazy chihuahuas. Then headed out for a 3 miles run and got some yard work down while I was sweaty, covered in sunblock, and stinky. I […]

Vida Vegan Con Day 3 – The Final Day


Happy Saturday! I am glad the weekend is here and I have a little down time to wrap up my awesome Vida Vegan Con experience last weekend in Austin, TX. I’m still going through all the blog business cards and information I collected and trying to figure out how to use all the fun stickers I got. […]

Vida Vegan Con Day 2


I am still catching up from our fun few days in Austin last weekend for Vida Vegan Con, it was a packed weekend. Saturday, or day two, was the first actual conference day and it was a long day. Somehow, even with jet lag and all the running around Friday, I managed to get up […]

Vida Vegan Con Day 1 in Austin


I should have taken today off work too after getting home yesterday afternoon because it would have been nice to unpack, get over jet lag, clean house, sort through photos and notes, and spend time with the dogs after being gone for five days. Lesson learned! We had so much fun in Austin over the weekend, […]

The Clay Pit in Austin


Hi! Popping in with a quick post from Austin, TX, today was the final day of Vida Vegan Con and I have tons of photos and info to sort through and have been having too much fun here to do so. We just got back from the final after party where we had kale margaritas at Cheer Up Charlies and […]

Making Broccoli A Decadent Dressing Again


Hello from Austin! We arrived today for Vida Vegan Con, my first one and sadly the last one of these conferences so I’m glad to be attending! I will have a ton of posts and pics coming soon when we have faster wifi. Before we left, I was getting the pouty look from Miko because he […]

Creamy Summery Garlic Dressing


I’m sad the long weekend is over and it was back to the grind today, but we have more fun planned next weekend and a short work week! Memorial Day was very low key here, my mom came over with her super energetic dog, Dasher. All three dogs instantly started competing for her attention, she could not get […]

Weekend List with Shopping Finds


Happy Memorial Day weekend! Ah, love long weekends especially after a wacky, busy week at work with a lot of projects and covering for people while they’re on vacation. But next week is my turn to go on vacation for a little adventure! We have been working on the garden, shopping, and relaxing so far this […]
