Vegetarian Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving 2012

First Thanksgiving in our own home. Henry’s First Thanksgiving ever. First Thanksgiving that I’ve been in charge of from start to finish. And I didn’t burn a single dish!  A Thanksgiving miracle. I followed our Thanksgiving menu to the letter.  I made a lot of stuff last night, and for the dishes that I had [...]

Thanksgiving Menu

On the hunt for some new servings bowls, I headed to Home Goods (the interior design version of Marshalls – you must go if you haven’t been!).  I really wanted to hit up Goodwill or a consignment store – it would’ve been so much cheaper – but ran out of time.  Maybe next year.    [...]

But What About the Entrée?

In college, I practically lived at a bar called Hemingway’s.  You see, Hemingway’s was amazing for two very simple reasons:  on Wednesdays, they offered $1 draft Blue Moons.  Just ONE DOLLAR.  Music to my college ears. Sadly, I went back to Hemingway’s a few years ago, and $1 Blue Moons are now $1.25.  Inflation blows. [...]

Make-Up Free – The Way to Be?

When I wake up tomorrow, it will be just THREE DAYS until my second marathon!  Soooo excited.  And sooo nervous. :) :)   Today was a typical Tuesday – lots of writing, e-mailing, secretary-ing at the clinic, and a little volunteering with Girls on the Run. Ever since I read about the 200 Texas high [...]

Thanksgiving Comes Early

Chilling at the clinic again! That acupuncture doll has freaked me out for the last three and a half years.  Probably because he is butt naked.  There are acupuncture points in places you would not believe.   On a more serious note, today I tried my first attempt at making a veganized Thanksgiving side dish.  [...]
