I okay, so I’ll confess that I thought most of today was Wednesday.
That will happen this time of year! Tomorrow is my last day of the 2017-2018 school year and I’m so anxious for summer! I love my job and my seeing friends at work everyday, but I can’t wait to walk out tomorrow and be free. I’ve been waiting all year to have unlimited Soy Bean time. Last summer I was so nervous taking him out and plus I was recovering from having him, so this summer I want to soak up. It’s also going to be the first full summer in our house, and we are excited to do some yard work and enjoy our home.
Well I didn’t document it, but we had burritos from Moe’s last night. I have a good excuse though. We had a pretty eventful evening. One of our cars unexpectedly crapped out on us last week, so we had to buy a new one. I wasn’t thrilled at first, I mean having just one car payment is pretty sweet, but I love the new car. I guess I’ll deal with it.
Soy Bean had his 12 month appointment today and he is officially a giant! Well maybe that’s a bit of a hyperbole, but he’s a big boy. I’m so grateful that he’s healthy and thriving. I’m sure Soy Bean was happy too, but maybe not so much after his three shots and blood test. He’s a tough cookie though.
Alright back to food, so I didn’t take a picture of our dinner last night, but I thought I’d dig through the archives of my phone and find a few foodie ideas (that I could have easily eaten on a Wednesday).
Also, yes, I take pictures of food randomly…my phone is loaded with Soy Bean, Sophie, and food pics.
First, as you can see is vegan tikka masala from Trader Joe’s. I can’t tell you how bummed I am that I don’t live 10 minutes away from a TJ’s anymore. This meal is great when you don’t have time to cook, but you want something satisfying. When I make this I usually mix in some broccoli as well. I’ve brought this for lunch at work since it’s microwaveable and I’ve made it for dinner for the hubs and me when we want take out food but don’t want to go out.
Next is the Beast Burger. I’ll probably be plugging Beast Burgers a lot since I bought Dylan a grill for Father’s Day. Beast Burgers are the most amazing veggie burger out there. What I love about them is they are a pea based protein (I try to limit soy) and they honestly taste and look like a real burger. Who doesn’t love a burger (and fries)???
So next week is my fist official week of summer. I’m hoping to fit some blogging in (when SB is sleeping of course). So far I have SB signed up for swim lessons, but that’s really it for solid plans. We’re hoping to spend as much time outdoors as we can and have some playdates with friends.
Alright, I’m going to retire for the evening. One more wake up!
