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