Can you believe that it’s tax day?  April 15th is normally the big day, but for all the procrastinators, you actually have until April 18 this year to file.  I filed months ago and actually got a tiny refund check last week.

As I said before, I’d rather not get a big refund, nor do I want to owe.  Breaking even or a small refund is better because that means I had access to my money all year and was not waiting for my money to be refunded.  But everyone has a different take on this.

This week I have been so busy with work, life, Target errands, grocery shopping, and little DIY projects like making lightbounces.  Given everything I’ve been up to, I actually cooked a few things, too.

Like some Vegan Sloppy “Bean & Lentil” Joes

I find buns and gluten to be over-rated so I skip the bread and eat my sloppy joes sans buns, and with a fork.


And I made some Cinnamon Sugar & Ginger Roasted Potato Sticks

And the sun has been shining and the flowers are blooming, which makes me happy!

Thankfully, spring is in the air!  It makes me happy to see blue skies and palm trees gently blowing in the wind.

The flowers are blooming and the crickets are chirping.  Chirp, chirp.  All night long.

From my last post, Overnight Growth, it was interesting hearing whether you have memories to recount of childhood growth sports.

And I liked hearing the last things you purchased at Target.  We all concur that Target can be a money pit, that’s for sure.

Breakfast/Dessert/Snack: Microwave Blueberry Banana Oat Cake

If you have a microwave and 5 minutes you can make these.  Vegan and GF as a bonus, too.


1. Did you file your taxes?  Did you have to pay in or are you getting a refund?

2. How’s the weather where you are?

It’s supposed to be sunny, and in the high 70s/low 80s Friday and Saturday.  I can’t wait!  It was really nice here a few weeks ago but winter came back so I am looking forward to spring and summery weather!

However, San Diego is notorious for May Gray and June Gloom.  Meaning, it’s cloudy, overcast, chilly, windy, and nastier in June than in can be in February often times, so not really looking forward to that, at all.

3. What’s the last thing you made that was oh-so-good?

I made a tofu dish that was great.  Recipe to be posted in a couple days after I get all the pictures uploaded.  In the meantime, the rest of my Tofu Recipes are here.
