Halloooo dear readers. Happy New Year. Here's how I rang out 2012 and "halllooooooed" 2013:
Spent the day "mocktailing" it. This is 5 parts seltzer: 3 parts orange juice: 1 part apple cider vinegar, as recommended by a friend. I like it a lot - not too carbonated, not too sweet, and really refreshing. (Plus good for you!)
I drank about 3 throughout the day so I wasn't super hungry. This was the last meal I ate in 2012, though:
Raw broccoli, avocado, tempeh with Braggs and red pepper flakes.
Plus a couple dry roasted hazelnuts (a Christmas present) to snack on:
Got in some last-of-the-year chill time with les chats lunatiques:
(Eli, my roommate's cat. The roommate is away for the holidays so I'm on belly-petting duty, double-time.)
Haxan, looking more confused and less sassy than usual.
Later that night, I headed out to a friend's house to PARTAY. Her boyfriend and his friend were major mix masters that night. Oof.
One of many.
Snacks to line our bellies:
Some really good white bean dip (I think the people who made it mentioned lime juice and mustard among other ingredients)! Pretzel thins. There was also tortilla chips and homemade salsa, carrots, and an awesome hot pepper jelly that I ate.
Sooo yeah. That's a brief re-cap. It was a fun night, and I hope you all had a blast as well. I don't particularly have any resolutions or cleanses planned, so just stay tuned for more of the same: booze, cats, and good vegan food.
