Nothing special today, really. I was busy and it's too hot to be very hungry.
Breakfast was soaked overnight oats and chia topped with dried mango, kiwi, and banana.
I did some cleaning, some laundry, got some reading and writing done, cleaned for my friend, and got some groceries. The trip to and from the store was longer than the time I was in there. I didn't get much but there were a few things we did need, so oh well. Notably, I got salsa, which really made my (late!) lunch (like 4:30) really delicious:
Salad of romaine, spinach, cucumber, tomatoes, red cabbage, broccoli, hakurei turnips, and avocado. Topped with salsa and cilantro. I also had an illicit afternoon beer (Goose Island 312) with it to fuel a bit more cleaning, and, well, cuz I was hot. I had some chips and more salsa, too.
Now about that giveaway, to make up for the boring eats of today! I had mentioned I would be doing one soon, but that was a long time ago. Well, cleaning up today re-invigorated me for it. I'm giving away a copy of Alicia C. Simpson's Quick and Easy Vegan Celebrations. If you click on that link, you can see the Table of Contents, which is probably more helpful than me trying to describe what's in it.
I haven't made anything from it, but a lot of it looks interesting. There is a small middle section of some really beautiful photos of the recipes. I can't say if it's gluten-free friendly or not because I'm not too sure on what that entails. Maybe substitutions will be simple enough.
To enter the giveaway, tell me your favorite holiday to cook for/eat on! The deadline for entering is Friday, July 1, so that I can potentially mail the book out and get it to you in time for the next upcoming holiday, the 4th of July (She's got a BBQ Tempeh Hoagie recipe for that one!) Good luck, stay cool.
