We have cracked the running costume code! It’s $7 most-comfortable-leggings-of-all-time-from-Walmart! I mean running is already a major commitment so obviously running in a costume has just been out of the question. Until these bad boys came on the scene. Game changed.
One of my favorite photos from Thanksgiving day. It gives me a sigh of relief to see that we in fact did not push Jim too far with our “get up at 4:30am and drive us to Detroit and escort Hadley in the Turkey Trot and cook all the food and can most of it be new vegan recipes” requests.
(Actually the Silver Sticks)
We had four games in Midland with a little break in the middle to catch a Red Wings game in Detroit. If you’re keeping track, that’s so much hockey and so much driving.
Like once a season Jim and I run together. He gave me a buff that matches his (Different color. Not shown). We even share Airpods. It’s adorable.
Hadley’s third volleyball season has come to an end. A pretty good one despite a little hiatus when she thought she fractured her toe. And also that they barely won. But their team had a lot of laughs together and Hadley seemed immensely confident on the court. And that’s all we really wanted anyway.
I’ve been loving our blender for such a long time. Even though the display hasn’t worked in years, it otherwise never fails me. And now it has leveled up, with the discovery of a squash soup recipe that changed my vegan life! Did you even know you can just roast a whole squash beautifully in the oven without so much as poking a hole in it or slicing it in any way??? Here is such squash, all blended up with soaked cashews (which make it creamy), a roasted onion and some delicious herbs…
(BTW I do recommend that cookbook for anyone you know trying to foray into veganism)
I also just wanted to give a shout out to
my worst best smoothie ever. Worst for appearance, but best for taste! I present you with the oj-blueberry-banana-strawberry-chia-spirulina-needsasexiername smoothie!
