so, yesterday morning, i got a great surprise just as i was about to leave for work. due to thunder and lightening, activities at the garden were canceled for the day!
i took the opportunity to watch a little glee (catching up on my dvr’ed shows while brad wasn’t around – he hates glee with a passion), work from home, go to the library, and do some wedding planning.
the library trip was so fun! i grabbed a couple books by authors i’ve liked in the past, a couple dvd’s, and then i joined liz* in the cookbook section and was transported back to my younger self.
*yes, that’s right, liz finally starter her own blog! go show her some love!!
i found kirsten’s cookbook! please tell me you read the american girl books when you were younger too!? felicity was my favorite, but i liked kirsten second!
i also found the boxcar children’s cookbook! i owned at least 100 of the boxcar series books. i used to read and read and read when i was younger – liz used to get so mad at me for not playing with her!
i also used to love babysitters’ club books, sweet valley high, and little house on the prairie!
on our way home from the library, liz and i passed this cute little garden in the fireman’s park.
it looks like a day camp in the area takes care of it. it was so cute!
it made me happy to see it!
then, liz made me dinner!
she made tasty socca stuffed with turkey burgers for herself, but she made a vegan version for me: socca stuffed with sauteed spinach, mushrooms, and onions! it was awesome – thanks liz!
i also had a small side of farro mess (farro, balsamic vinegar, and sun-dried tomatoes). a serving a green beans made their way onto my plate after this photo was taken too!
socca is seriously a lifesaver for me during this vegan challenge. i’ve been eating it so much!
did you read much when you were younger?
what were your favorite books?
and on a completely unrelated note:
has anyone made a slideshow with music for a wedding reception?
i’m working on one, but i’m not sure powerpoint is going to cut it…
