RANT ALERT and Dinner Out

Just as we were arriving home we received a call that the lady who was supposed to view our apartment an hour earlier had pushed the time back.  We said it was fine that she went in that we would hang out on the bench in the front yard so that she could have a chance to check the place out.  It was a nice treat for our indoor kitty because we let her come out and rub her face in the grass- she was in heaven.  Everything was going fine and about a half hour later we decided that it was time to bring the kitty inside and we expected that by then the lady would have seen enough and be leaving. BOY WERE WE WRONG!

She proceed to tell the rental agent about 30 things that she would like improved or changed if she were to move in.  My husband and I were sitting in the living room going ARE YOU SERIOUS! Anyways this went on for another 30 minutes and then finally the Hubz told them that they just had to go…but they didn’t go far they hung out in the yard for another 20 minutes. Maybe I’m too rigid but I think after 30minutes of viewing an apartment that the potential renter had already viewed the week before is just rude.

Okay rant over.  Since the viewing ended up going way longer than we expected I just wasn’t feeling like putting together dinner so the Hubz took me out to the Skinny Pancake for vegan crepes; I had the vegan crepedilla and the Hubz had a vegan monster and a Harpoon brew.

After a delicious dinner we came home to enjoy a little Netflix and I had a Pomegranate Seltzer Mocktail and the Hubz had a sour beer.

Q: When you look at a new place to rent how long do you generally spend looking? Do you make certain demands/request before you agree to take the rental space?


I know I have been M.I.A. for the past few days but I’m around just really busy! I have been sticking to my June 2010 Pantry Challenge and it has been a lot of fun. This week was made slightly easier because the Hubz has been working off-site so all his lunches the past few days have been supplied- which means less food I have to make. I honestly haven’t been eating anything very interesting which has given me a lack of motivation to blog about it, on top of the fact that we are crazy busy with work, Hubz softball and oh yeah that whole packing thing because we move in 3 WEEKS! EEK! Anyways I just wanted to check in and let you know I’m still here! This weekend we will be out of town and I am interested in having a few guest bloggers so if you are a healthy living, vegan and/or eco-friendly blogger please e-mail me lindsay{at}cookingforaveganlover{dot}com with why you’d like to be a guest blogger and what your entry would be about.

Lazy Sunday

Today has been a fairly lazy Sunday and it feels great! We woke up to rain and I knew that meant it would be the perfect day to relax on the couch with the fur baby and Hubz. It hasn’t been a totally lazy day though as I made kale and zucchini chips this morning which are still in the dehydrator getting all crispy and we did get ourselves out for a walk once the rain let up a bit.

I started my morning out with something I haven’t had in forever OATMEAL! I used to eat it daily but it’s been a few weeks since I have had myself a nice bowl of warm creamy oats with chia seeds, cinnamon, stevia, flax meal and a banana of course.

For lunch I cooked up some brown rice and topped it with leftover sliced Korean BBQ tempeh, 5 Spiced Garnet Yams and some soy glazed brussels sprouts all topped with sriracha of course!

Hubz and I are now off to watch a movie- Q: What are you up to today?
