We are still in our season of "trying times" here, and as such I've found myself lacking in culinary creativity. Thankfully, however, this narrow focus on a problem beyond myself does not necessitate a compromise of vegan standards. No, I cannot come up with something creative to eat right now, but that doesn't mean I reach for a can of Spaghettios. It means I look around the pantry and see a can of beans, and an avocado, and in the fridge a package of arugula that still happens to look pretty good. So that's what I eat, drizzled with my Blood Orange Olive Oil and a grind of fresh pepper. So I guess the vegan lifestyle is the right one for me. It's the core of who I am. It's the most effortless choice. In this case boring? Maybe. Good? Yes.


  1. Just caught up on your last few posts. Sorry to hear about your son. Great job on keeping your cool and being a rock for your family! Hang in there!

  2. This actually looks really good to me:) Sometimes simple is best!

  3. Thanks ladies -- Melissa, fessing up: I'm just about on the edge, but keep reminding myself that "this, too, shall pass"
