Today I'm going to show you a few meals that I enjoyed over the week. I've been eating some pretty delicious food lately. I've been somewhat more inspired in the kitchen lately and I'm also listening to what my body is craving so that helps as well.
First up I have a bento box lunch. On the left is my typical favorite salad with romaine, almonds, cranberries and the Panera Asian Vinaigrette. On the right is some veggies, two stuffed grape leaves and some hummus.
This was seriously amazing you guys! This is actually a restaurant recreation I made! I originally had it at an Italian restaurant and it is pasta with eggplant, asparagus and peas in a red sauce. When I ordered it I made sure to say no cheese because they can be sneaky about that stuff and I used some nooch when I made it myself. I also used my favorite gluten free pasta. I also made sure to use mostly veggies with some pasta added in because I like mine veggie heavy :)
This is the same salad as above with a granny smith apple added in to it.
This is one of the Sun Butter Cookies that Bianca sent me in my care package! You guys! This is GOOD. Like really good. It is super tender and "buttery" and not too sweet. I've been savoring these slowly, I still have a few left for treats next week.
Finally, I decided to do a Pizza Friday last night! I made a tortilla pizza with a tortilla as the crust, used Daiya mozzarella and tried a little bit of the Tofurky Pepp'roni that I found! I don't even know why I bought it because I never liked pepperoni to begin with but I was so curious. I knew better than to do the whole pizza with it because I didn't know if I would like it so I just tried it on a quarter. It was better than I thought it would be but not my favorite. I will finish what I have but I won't buy it again kind of thing.
Finally, I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was on the prowl for a crossbody bag. I just find them easier to carry, especially because my bag tends to be heavy. I had gone to every store with no luck so I finally decided to try searching Vegan Crossbody bags on eBay and immediately found this beauty!! I love the look of it, the title said vegan which takes all of the guesswork out of it and it looked big enough without being massive. Best part was it was only $23.99 (and discounted slightly at checkout with free shipping so I paid $22.97). I received it yesterday and it is GORGEOUS and super super soft. I chose the gray because I thought it would be a good color to use year round if necessary. And I also really love gray. I think it's my favorite color at the moment ;) Anyway, I thought I would share because I told you I would let you know if I found something! Oh and the shipping was super fast. I ordered it on Sunday and had it by Friday of a holiday week.
So that's what I have for you today! I hope you have a great weekend <3
