I’ve been trying to enjoy this 10-day vacation and of course I’m sick. Woke up yesterday with this awful sore throat and today slept until 9. I never sleep that late!
I postponed yesterday’s run and attempted to make these gorgeous Garlic Potato & Kale Cakes from the Nom Yourself vegan cookbook. They didn’t turn out as gorgeous but they were tasty! I realized I took my immersion blender for soap-making and didn’t replace it for cooking, so I attempted to use the blender for the mixture and well, it didn’t turn out quite right, so no pictures were taken, haha!
This is what they’re supposed to look like: (From the Nom Yourself website)
Aren’t they pretty? Top with some vegan sour cream and they’re even more delish! I truly enjoy her cookbook. Follow Nom Yourself on Instagram for the best vegan food you’ll ever see. That’s what made me purchase the cookbook 🙂
Anyway, tonight I have dinner with an old friend of mine at The Cheesecake Factory and I’ve already picked out the vegan options, like Evelyn’s favorite pasta, yum! Transitioning to vegan, I have to plan ahead, not doing that was what made me fail countless times. I’d get frustrated not finding vegan food options and immediately revert back to vegetarianism. Because it was easier. Now I have the Happy Cow app on my iPhone, the internet and support from friends who have been vegan for years, who never get tired of me texting them for advice 🙂
Back to resting up. Glad to be home not feeling well, than at work, that’s for sure.
