It’s In The Mail
I had a busy day! It started off by mailing a package to the winner
Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls went in the box
I wanted to include other cookie dough versions like…
But because they contain dairy (toffee bits and white chocolate) and I don’t know if the winner is vegan or not, I didn’t include the other cookie dough bite versions.
The errand-fest continued after leaving the post office by going to:
the hardware store
And then I got my workout in.
The weather has been sunny, but cool and windy here. That hasn’t stopped me from a few nice outdoor runs and some 20 minute at-h0me streamlined workouts.
Because of my photography and food styling workshop on Saturday as well as working seven days a week at my job, I didn’t have a chance to batch cook for the week as I would have liked, but I quickly threw together something that I knew we could get a couple meals out.
From my last post on Forgotten Food, thanks for letting me know if you tend to forget about food, or not. Sounds like most of you keep pretty close tabs on what you have laying around and hate to waste perishables as much as I do.
And I’m glad you like to keep your cupboards and refrigerators neat and organized, too!
The chocolate kale chips in that post got quite a few comments so maybe I will plan to recreate those.
In the meantime, how about this chocolate for dessert: No Bake Vegan “Peppermint Patties”
1. What was the last thing you mailed?
Usually it’s bills for me. Today I mailed a check for my life insurance policy premium that was due. Exciting, I know.
I much prefer mailing something fun to someone!
2. What was the last thing you received in the mail that made you happy?
I would say the kale chips that had been a bit forgotten about.
Other than the kale chips, the Horseradish Mustard I got in the mail last week was really tasty and made me happy.
And also my Lightroom 3 software I ordered has been so fun to play around with. I use it every day, multiple times per day. Yes, there is a learning curve but if you’ve outgrown iPhoto or Picnik, I really like LR 3 for photo editing.
3. Any signs of spring in the air for you?
Yes, there are here but every time I think spring/summer is well on it’s way, we get a cold snap and I am running the heat again. They are saying 80F or 82F by Friday. Currently, high 60s here. But super windy so it doesn’t feel anywhere near 70. At least the flowers don’t mind the wind.
Enjoy your day!
