WIAW: Leap Day Edition
Happy Leap Day! Today is the 29th February - a day we only get once every four years. So enjoy it! My day was disappointingly low on protein, but I was busy and on the go today so it was all about eating what I could when I could. If I had been home more, or if I had had the foresight to bring my Magic Bullet to work, I would have snuck in a protein shake and amped it up today! Ah well. As it was, here are my day's eats. I can't wait to check yours out! Thanks as always to Jenn for hosting.
Christmas Recipe Round-Up: Part 2
Yesterday I covered the appetizers I made in advance - which was most of them, as I was making the whole Christmas Day meal on the day, so all the better to get the appetizers out of the way! However, I left the dips for the crispy quinoa cakes, pita chips, crudites, olives and other snackeroos to the day of so they'd be ultra fresh! The trio of dips I laid out (you can see them in the top right corner of the picture below) were, from left, naturally-sweetened cranberry sauce (this was also served with the meal), vegan garlic aioli and vegan roasted red pepper sauce (click for the recipe, as it was previously posted).
WIAW: Snacks and Soup!
This is everything in my WIAW. A lot...a lot of snacky things. Looking at this made me realize what I had only half noticed otherwise: I'm in a really snacky mood lately. You know how sometimes it takes writing down what you do every day to notice behavioural patterns? I am now noticing how, this past week especially, I've been eating a lot of snacks and fewer large meals. As I'm not in the States, I can't blame this on the aftermath of stuffing myself silly on Thanksgiving. It might just be that with weather getting cooler, I feel like I need to be eating more often (do you like how I just justified that?). Or maybe with all the Christmas goodies floating around I realized - subconsciously, of course! - that if I eat smaller meals I can fit in more treats :). Either way, thanks to Jenn as always for hosting and let's get this party started...!
