Freaky Temps

by Meghann on April 19, 2010

I would like to point out that its April 19th and I am currently sitting on my couch with no ac, all the windows opened, and am a little chilly. Where do I live again? Because this is not central Florida!

However, I’m not complaining. The freaky weather is awesome for my electricity bill. Gotta love it! πŸ™‚

The rest of my afternoon flew by at work today. Gotta love the never ending task list to keep me entertained.

Before my 3:00pm meeting – anyone else ever feel like there days are just one meeting after another? – I snacked on a piece of pumpkin nut bread.

I had a block of silken tofu in the fridge and a free evening to experience in the kitchen. After a little googling for inspiration I came across a recipe for Lentil- Bulgur Loaf that sounded good.

I halved the recipe and followed the step-by-step directions to a tee. It was a pretty time consuming recipe, but the results were pretty tasty.

The loaf looked, smelled, and tasted just like a regular ole meat loaf. It was pretty fantastic actually. Especially with a little ketchup. πŸ™‚

On the side I had some parsnip fries (parsnips baked in the oven at 375 for 20 minutes with salt and pepper)

and steamed green beans.

I just realized this was meal was 100% vegan. The best vegan meals are the ones I consume without even trying to make it vegan.

For dessert I had the last of the Peanut Butter Chocolate Thumbprint cookies from Meredith.

Maddie has a boyfriend.

She is in love with my neighbor’s dog, Yoda, and runs up to their porch every time we walk by. It’s so cute. She’ll sit there and whine for Yoda to come outside. When he does come outside they’ll run, run, and run, which means a tired pups. I’m quite fond of Yoda myself for that aspect of their relationship. πŸ˜‰
