Weekend Plans & Brown
Happy Weekend! I am always glad when the weekend is here.
Time to get some fresh air and enjoy the fall weather
Ok, I really don’t love fall because it means that winter is coming but I’ll pretend the seasonal changes just stop with fall. And that winter won’t ever show up.
And yes, it does get chilly here in the winter. We don’t walk around with swimsuits on while rollerskating along the beach, Three’s Company style, which I think is everyone’s mental image and impression of SoCal.
I plan to go for a few nice runs
Do some at-home yoga
I have little desire to go to in-studio yoga classes the past few years because at home yoga is on my own timetable, and I can do my own flow and what I want to work on. And oh yes, it’s free.
I’d like to make some new soup versions because they’re easy, make planned leftovers, and I use the dump-it-all-in recipe “technique”. Whatever I have on hand, more than likely, will work.
Maybe something along the lines of
Crockpot Vegan Chili (can make in a crockpot or stovetop and I actually think the stovetop is easier/faster/quicker cleanup but the crockpot works if you’re a set it and forget it fan)
I need to make another batch if for nothing else to take new pictures
Brown food (or any softer, not much texture, or ‘comfort food’) is just not that pretty. Well, at the very least it’s harder to photograph it in a pretty way.
I wrote a post on Not So Pretty Food with food styling tips and some book reviews
I tried my best with the Spicy Baked Blacked Beans with Vegetables from earlier this week
But I’d still rather just have dessert
No Bake Oatmeal Raisin Carrot Cake Bites (Vegan, GF)
Brown desserts trump brown beans any day for me. I contributed this recipe to Marcus Samuelsson’s site. He won Top Chef a couple seasons ago but I didn’t even know that at the time.
1. What are your weekend plans?
2. What’s your favorite Brown Food? Do you think certain foods are harder to photograph than others?
My fave brown foods would be Fudgy Nutella Brownies
Just chocolate desserts, in general
And I think desserts, in general, are just easier to photograph.
Thanks for the Case of Odwalla Bars Giveaway entries, too
