Lately...

Feeling voyeuristic? Perfecto, here's a look into my last week or so:

ONE
We've been a two dog house for the past week!  Pookie's owner died a couple of years ago and her interim caretakers could no longer keep her, so we volunteered to foster/babysit while finding her a permanent home.  If all goes as planned, she should be joining her new family soon.  A part of me is sad that Pookie is leaving, but I am grateful for the rare chance to temporarily test out having two dogs.  (It's true what they say about one dog training another.)  Pook is such a sweet, smiley thing, she will be missed.  Especially by her smaller, more spazzy, counterpart.




TWO
I  can't stop making and eating these delicious tacos.  Lentil walnut "meat" may sound like some kind of disgusting hippie grub, but please believe it's got everything you want out of a true-blue taco.  These little gems have earned unicorn status in my book:  they are decadently delcious but are 90% veggies.  And so easy and fast to make.

THREE
Speaking of easy and fast, both times I made those tacos this past week I did so while working out.  These have become a regular part of my routine.  Saying "routine" makes me feel like I am 60 and doing aerobics, which I essentially achieved while jumping around my living room, pausing to check the oven and stir a pot on the stove. Totally worth it.

Although I find it impossible to return their books on time, I am back on the library train.  As my mother likes to say, late fees are our "donations".  See, I am a philanthropist.  I just read Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn and have heard from many that Gone Girl needs to be on my list as well.  Noted!  Currently I am devouring "I'm Having So Much Fun Here Without You" by Courtney Maum.  This one I snagged soley based on the clever title.  Now that I am half way through, I am on a search for more by this author.  So far, so awesome!

Current snack obsessions are two that I blame my job for!  We are located so close to Trader Joes, it's not even funny.  Their Kettle Corn and Inner Bean crisps are dee-lish.
