…kind of amazing!
Week one is on the books and I feel like a totally different person. I’m starting to get into the groove of my new schedule and so far, so good. School is amazing and it was awesome to lead 8(!) meetings last week!
On Tuesday morning I was able to take a trip to the fruit & veggie market bright and early to get lots of goodies to fill up my fridge including kale, carrots, fennel, bananas, cauliflower, tomatoes, avocado and spinach. I put lots of the veggies to good use in various salads and black bean soup with fresh salsa (recipe from How it All Vegan) My new schedule also meant I had time during the day for meals with some lovely friends! Including Fresh with Melly I had the Jerusalem bowl (rice with hummus, sprouts, spinach, cucumber, tomato & onion) with an amazing gluten free vegan walnut brownie for dessert. And on Friday, I had lunch with Lindsay at Camros. It was fantastic as usual! Kale salad, funny squash stew, beet salad and a rice ball with ginger green tea and a shared slice of delightful raw carrot cake Not only was it Friday afternoon and I was not in the office, but i felt like I had died and gone to food heaven!! Amazing food, beautiful company, and the sun was shining – what more can a girl ask for? Dessert has got to be one of my favourite things and it makes me so happy that I can still enjoy it in wonderful ways as a gluten free vegan! Everything in moderation!! I want to do some baking/unbaking this week… any ideas?
I’m looking forward to keeping busy this week. Need to do some writing for the blog and another project that’s in the works (details soon!) as well as work on my assignment for the end of this class. We have to examine some of the chemicals found in our homes, research the health and environmental impacts of those chemicals/products and make recommendations on changes we can make. So interesting! I’ll be sure to share my findings in a few weeks. I’m also busy preparing for REX, which opens in a little over 3 weeks! We ran on Saturday “off book” for the first time which was nerve wracking but very exciting. Both Anne and Elizabeth are incredibly dynamic characters which makes the show a ton of fun for me. I can’t wait until I can post pictures of my costumes!
How has your first month of 2010 been thus far? Everything you had hoped for? How are you going big? Is there anything that you would like me to talk about on the blog?
