Moving Day Part 3.1

I had the hardest time getting up this morning and as soon as I got out of bed the fur baby curled up and decided to take a snooze; she has no idea how lucky she is. After all the packing and moving this weekend I feel like I didn’t even get a weekend off and I am dead today-the rain doesn’t help either.  Yesterday we picked up the last of our belongings and finished cleaning our old place.  While we cleaned I enjoyed a Hint water that they sent me to sample and some chips.  The water was okay the flavor was a bit strong for me but it was at least refreshing while we cleaned.

With the help of my parents the 4 of us were able to clean the place and be on our way in just over 2 hours which was great.  We then stopped to have a picnic on the way back to their house, our temporary home.

White Bean and Avocado Sandwiches


  • 1-15oz can of white beans, drained, rinsed and gently mashed
  • 1/2 an avocado diced
  • 1 small tomato, seeded and diced
  • 1/4 cup green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2T reduced fat Vegenaise (or your favorite vegan mayo)
  • 1/4 of a lemon juiced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Makes enough filing for 4 sandwiches.

With my sandwich I enjoyed a Polar seltzer and for dessert an O’Cookie .  I was sent these to sample and the sample included 2 non-vegan and 2 vegan packages so my parents enjoyed some of the non-vegan and my hubz and I the vegan.  The favorite from my dad who tried both a vegan and a non-vegan was the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat which unfortunately is not vegan.  The vegan flavor we tried was Dark Chocolate Raisin Oat – it was good and I love how tiny the cookies are.

Moving Day 3.2 is still to come- I’ll try posting this evening if the internet is working at my parents house.  We are only on part 3 of the moving process and I am hoping that we don’t have too many more. *Dreaming of moving into our new place*

Moving Day Parts 1&2

Hey Bloggies over the last 3 days the Hubs, my parents and I have been packing up, moving and cleaning our old place to move everything into our friends basement until we find out when we can finally move into our new apartment.  We were supposed to move in July 1st however due to building hold-ups we aren’t sure when we are going to be able to move in.  We just hope that it’s in the next 2-3 weeks.  For now we are crashing in my parents 2nd living room and it’s nice but we have no cellphone service and slow internet BOOOO; oh yeah and an hour commute to work.

When we arrived at my parents house after hours of moving boxes and cleaning I was delighted to see that a package from Divvies Bakery. Inside the box I found a number of goodies that of course will be blogging about them but I’ll start with this wonderful treat.

Okay before I enjoyed one of these wonderful cupcakes I first had dinner. For dinner we had swiss chard and chickpeas, brown rice pilaf and steamed broccoli.

Finally it was time to enjoy a yummy cupcake topped with frosting and sprinkles.  These cupcakes were delicious! They were so moist and the frosting was fudgie goodness.  I love that these are vegan and are made in a nut free facility which is great for those who have nut allergies.

The internet is so slow here I will finish blogging with Part 3 of moving days.  Nightie Night!

Breakfast With A Friend

This morning I met my good friend Denise for breakfast at Magnolia Bistro in Burlington.  This is my favorite breakfast spot in Burlington because not only do they have tons of vegan options but they are a certified green restaurant that sources their goods from local resources.  Although I was eyeing the potato pancakes I decided to go with my favorite tofu scramble, the sesame tofu scram.

I also enjoyed a fresh squeezed organic orange juice because it’s delicious and I’ve been trying to crowd out coffee.

Breakfast was delicious and I had a wonderful time chatting with my dear friend who is on her way back to Denver tonight boooooo. Now I’m off to work! Blog you later!

Q: What did you have for breakfast?
