This morning it was snowing when I peaked outside before my run, so I knew it couldn’t be super cold. (It was 12 degrees.)
I ran 4 miles in 35 minutes. My legs felt pretty fresh, and I avoided any moose encounters. (I almost ran right past one yesterday!)
When I saw it was snowing this morning, I made sure to put my YakTraxs on.
I have found they work really well for providing traction on loose snow–or even packed snow. They slip on easily over my shoes, and I’ve never had a problem with them falling off. I have the “walker” version.
I am continually amazed at how many dishes can be veganized (It that a word?).
I knew it was going to be a pretty time-intensive process, so I made the pizza dough and pesto on Sunday.
The pesto called for nutritional yeast. While I’ve seen a number of other bloggers use nutritional yeast, I’ve never used it myself. I am excited to experiment more with it!
Overall, I was happy with how it turned out, but I would make a few changes next time.
- I ended up only using about 1/3 of the pesto, which is fine because I know we will be able to use it in other dishes. So that’s for of an FYI.
- Also, I would eliminate the sauteed garlic and oil spread on the crust because it just caused the crust to become soaked with oil.
I also had a side salad with:
- yellow squash
- shredded carrots
- parmesan cheese
Instead of a traditional dressing, I added honey and kosher salt like Kath often does. I was a little skeptical that it would actually be good, but I was pleasantly surprised at how the sweetness of the honey complimented my salad!
And T minus 2 days (plus one day of grading) until break! Can’t wait!!!
(And I know Craig is excited as well because then I won’t be as stressed out, and I can actually spend time with him in the evenings!)
Do you send out Christmas cards/letters/pictures to friends and family?
I’m currently working on mine: a photo and letter. Normally they would in the mail by now, but I got a little behind.
