This is the last day of my vacation...whoa oh oh
Haha, yeah. It was sort of a bust today but at least I got the laundry done. I tried to start the last day out strong with a green smoothie and some Irish Breakfast tea:
We were out of rice milk, but this smoothie had spinach, a frozen banana, some water to blend, a few frozen blueberries and an Amazing Grass berry blend. Talk about antioxidants! It was a little weird, though - the berry flavor was a bit off and tasted sort of fake, which is bizarre because it's completely natural. Anyway, I might stick to the plain Amazing Grass powder, but I definitely want to start drinking more green smoothies in general.
Then I was running around, back and forth to my parents', and to Trader Joe's for groceries (it turned out G went too - we will never run out of rice milk again!). I managed to snag a roll from the folks' to put on :zucchini, green peppers, arugula, lettuce, and a spread of tahini and sriracha (it was amazing) - AND I found some vegan chocolate truffles I made my mom for her birthday last year! You snooze, you lose, mommy!
Blah blah blah, I did some junk and somehow it was dinner time. More romaine wraps, which didn't really hold together well with so much stuff crammed into them but included an interesting new addition.
It's not a great photo but those chunks on top that look like pineapple are actually parsnip. I got the idea from Gena, who made a cheesy parsnip spread. I only had one parsnip, so I scaled down the recipe significantly and didn't puree anything because I didn't want to dirty the food processor for one measly parsnip. Instead, I just worked with the flavors of miso, nooch, and parsnip. Interesting stuff. I'd still like to make the spread sometime when I can though. Other innards included cucumber, carrot, mushrooms, sprouts, spinach, and tomato. Badass. Back to work.
