Coffee Date with Lovey



Yeah, he’s cute and all, but there are pastries to be had. And mama ain’t foolin’. Beautiful, delicious, amazing vegan pastries. But, I’m cheap, and Wildflour is not, so I always buy their “day old” cookies, 3 for $5, which is still kind of steep, but definitely more my style.

I was feeling much better this morning after my 24-hour stomach bug; so much, in fact, that I convinced myself to go to yoga before work (but I was easy on myself), and when I got home, super hoo-man had our usual breakfast burrito + a beautiful green smoothie (with beets!), and black coffee ready for me.  WHATTA FELLA!

I thought I had a smoothie post already up, and I do, but it’s from 2007 and is vastly different from the smoothies we make today. I will post a photo with a recipe as soon as we have another.

And if that weren’t enough, super awesome hoo-man made me a delicious lunch salad as usual, which is never as much envy by my coworkers as it truly deserves, but I always enjoy it.  Today he spiralized some fresh raw beets with the carrots, which was a sweet surprise. Dr. McDougall’s ginger dressing had been brewing for easily a week, and so it was pungent and crisp.

He also packed me a banh  mi chay with a little beet, too! I almost forgot about all the beets today, but was reminded when… well, here: this should help explain.

Anyway… all that business aside: tomorrow we have a going-away-because-she-got-a-new-job party for a coworker, and I’m making some cupcakes…. VEGAN cupcakes, lol!  I made effort to make them even a tiny bit sweeter and with a little more oil than I use for us just to make a better impression on the omnivores.  I will dust them with powdered sugar in the morning. I didn’t have enough light to get a good photograph. I’ll try again before I take them in to work.
