I love midweek presents.
I was very happy to discover two packages when I checked my mailbox this afternoon.
It was so hard not to eat all three right when I opened the package.
The second was something I may have begged for over the weekend.
My dear friend Derek teased me this weekend when he sent me a photo of one of Jenna’s Pretzels from Greenwise. I was beyond jealous and decided I could not wait another week to have a pretzel.
Luckily, Derek is this amazing, great, wonderful guy who mailed me a Pretzel right away so I would not have to wait for the carby goodness. (Is that enough blog recognition? 😉 ) Thank You Derek!!
Before I came home and discovered my goodies, I had 2 Multi-Grain Fig Newtons this afternoon.
I have been wanting to try Sarah’s Red Lentil and Peanut Soup for a while, but was unable to purchase red lentils until this past weekend. After work I got straight to work putting together this creative meal straight from her directions. It took a little extra time to make, but was well worth it. I highly suggest giving this recipe a try!
The soup was so wonderfully creamy, but not too heavy. I topped my bowl with some fresh green onion and had had a 1/4 of my giant Pretzel on the side.
It was a great dinner and followed by a great dessert.
I immediately dug into one of Nicole’s Vegan Carrot Cake Whoopee Pies as soon as I cleaned my bowl. It was just as I imagines, sweet and light. I LOVED it. Thank you Nicole for sending some of your extras my way! 🙂
Alright, time to do some laundry so I will have some clean sports bras for this weekend. Good night everyone!
