How are ya?
Happy Thanksgiving to ALL my Canadian Friends! I am so Thankful for all of you beautiful readers and friends
So as many of you know this is a nice long holiday weekend here in Canada as we are celebrating everything we are grateful and thankful for. I have of course gone over what I am thankful for over the weekend which always makes me feel good. Being in a state of gratitude and thanks is amazing for your energy and it sure goes to show you how wealthy each and everyone of us are
Let me do a quick weekend recap and then I will get into the REAL good stuff!
Saturday night was dinner at my Nana’s for a true German Feast! She made Sauerbraten (Roast) with dumplings (potato goodness), schpetzle (wheat noodle goodness) and a whack of veggies including my fave Red Cabbage!
Ryan and I ate a lot of dumplings, cabbage and veggies Then we finished the night off with some New Moon Kitchen Cookies and called it a night.
Last night was dinner at Ryan’s parents place where we usually bring our own vegan din-dins along. I woke up early Sunday morning to prepare our dinner for the night as I knew I would be out all day long and wouldn’t have time. It is so strange to make dinner in the a.m. and smelling frying onions and rice
The funnier thing is it was smelling some good that when it was done cooking we decided to have some for breakfast……….interesting, I know
Our Thanksgiving Breakfast/Dinner was this:
Fall Veggie and Black Bean Stew
1 can black beans
1 small squash
1 medium sweet potato
3 cups brussel sprouts
1 can organic diced tomatoes
1 cup vegetable broth
sea salt, pepper and thyme to taste
1 tbsp olive oil
Heat the olive oil in a large sauce pan over medium and saute the onions until clear
Add the squash and sweet potato to the pan and cook for 5 minutes.
Add the remaining ingredients and cover
Lower heat and cook for 20-30 minutes or until the sweet potato are done.
Serve over Brown Rice!
It was a hit!
Ok moving along to our FUN NEWS for today!!
Vanilla is an ultimate fave flavor for me in smoothies and I really enjoyed the natural and not over bearing taste to this powder. It was soft enough to add into Protein Lava Cookies (YUM!) and it rocked my socks off in my morning Green Smoothies.
