Day 22.2: In need of rest
For lunch today, I had leftover Vegan Red Beans & Rice, the last serving (sniff, sniff). I can’t wait to make this dish again and perhaps make some modifications (or perhaps get that Adobo seasoning)!
For my afternoon snack, I unintentionally had 2 tbsp peanut butter. It just sounded better than peanuts and it was already there 😉
I was scheduled to work out with Farrah today to do a short run and some weights but something came up on both our ends, so I decided to go home early and enjoy a night of relaxation 🙂
Self-realization #2 – I love to cook!
I have yet to make up my own recipes but I love trying out what others have created and sometimes putting my own twist on them. Especially when I have the time to just take it easy and prepare a good meal…there’s nothing quite like it.
I used just regular vegetarian refried beans and I substituted oats for the bread crumbs, like I did with the vegan meatloaf.
I also finished off the wine from Tuesday night while cooking, that’s a good way to relax too 🙂
And here are the little cakes when they came out of the oven.
I was really hungry by the time dinner was done, so I piled a few on my plate and went back for seconds later. I actually nibbled at the veggies before the cakes were done so there were more there originally 😉
There are still enough left for another serving or two, yay!
For dessert, I had some So Delicious peanut butter zig zag. It’s my favorite, officially.
I usually don’t eat dessert this much but thanks to my friends, I have a freezer full of So Delicious treats. I think they should just make a container of peanut butter So Delicious now that I think of it. Can they get on that?
I’ve been sitting on the couch most of the night and I think I will do a load of dishes and laundry before the Jeff Dunham show comes on, then after that hit the hay.
It was nice to take a day off from exercise. I love it and it is a big part of my life but sometimes we need a break.
I don’t want to overdo it and miss out on good workouts like my run yesterday. My hips are still kind of sore. But I should be good to go tomorrow!
And put my alarm clock across the room before I go to sleep! See how sneaky the dog is then…
