Happy Stuff

It's been a long and exhausting two weeks at school, as my students write their provincial tests. One day this week, I'd had enough and needed to visit a few of my happy places to make everything OK again! So I took a trip to the library for some books from my book bucket list, and did some retail therapy at the local yarn store....

These are all vegan yarns (gotta love the warm weather yarns that come out!). I got 5 skeins of Butterfly Mercerized Cotton (brown), two skeins of Berroco Comfort DK (nylon, acrylic) in red, two skeins of Classic Elite Yarns Firefly (viscose and linen) in gray, two skeins of Rowan lenpur linen (green), and a skein of Kertzer On Your Toes Bamboo, a mix of bamboo viscose and nylon in purple (hello, socks!). I cannot disclose all of the projects I have in mind for some of these yarns, as they are part of my Christmas knit list. But the brown cotton is all mine and I hope to make a bolero with it.

Two of my animals getting along this morning...they look so guilty.

Junk Food

The following is a few weeks of stuff, I don't eat this stuff every night! We like to do one "junky" meal a week as a treat, like pizza, or mac and cheese, etc...

Mac and rich and filling!

Pizza with daiya cheese and vegan pepperoni

Chicken Nachos:
Corn tortilla chips with Daiya mozzarella and cheddar and chopped up PC "chicken".

My local health store started carrying Sol Cuisine's veggie breakfast patties. These taste a lot like sausage patties! So I had to make breakfast sandwiches last weekend to try them out. A tofu egg with cheese and sausage. Mmmm, it hit the spot!

Dill's tongue captured in action!

Also, here's the Prospect Park Potato Salad I brought when we went camping...
