so it's not so easy... this whole vegan thing. i forget what comes from animals. secret ingredients lurking about. maybe its all those years of taking animals for granted. maybe i'm just lazy.

working out is going well. my whole body is SORE and i love it. last night i took measurements and will continue to do so every two weeks. not going to post them (for the whole ZERO people who read this) but i'll post how many inches i lose as i lose them.

vegan recipe of the week:

Coconut-Lime Noodle Yumminess

1/4 c. sliced onion
1 Tb. olive oil
1/2 grated carrot
1 zucchini, sliced how you like it
about 1 c. veggie stock
1/2 can coconut milk (i used 'lite')
1 lime, juice and zest

i think that's it

anyway. saute the onion and carrot in the oil. add the zucchini, stock, and the zest- let it cook a little bit. we don't want soggy, people! add the coconut milk and heat through. add the lime juice at the end.

yumm. with a bunch of m's. i ate it on noodles. rice would be nice. or quinoa. or anything, really.

knitwise i finished one of my mom's birthday socks using a beautiful custom dyed yarn from ashabee's fiber oasis . the second sock is almost to the heel (toe up ann budd pattern). the yarn is so nice to work with that second sock syndrome is NONEXISTENT. i've discovered the cure! good yarn! who knew?

now my favorite part:
things i liked today- dd slept in. we had a great time playing together today. lunch with mom and some friends. fixed transaction with ashley at the bank. finally.

not so nice- casa blanca is NOT vegan friendly, so i'm sure i consumed an animal product, but i really tried not to. it's a little too hot for my taste today. had to go to the bank and actually talk to a banker about a mistake the stupid bank made. dd preferred my mom over me most of the day.

and there are still hours to fill...
