This post is going to be boring, just like my weekend! I was sick with a cold, and it was freeeeezing, and I actually only left the house twice.
The weekend started off really awesome though. I received a letter that I made honor roll this past semester! Even if it’s just pre-reqs at a community college, I was still pretty excited to get good grades. Straight A’s!
And on an even better note I received the best package ever from my best friend Rachel!
She sent all sorts of kinds of goodies. There was chocolate and chapstick.
And BBQ sauce and TOPO CHICO!
It’s no secret that I am in love with topo.
Eric was doing ‘man’ stuff Saturday but was kind enough to swing by a new vegan restaurant to pick up some goodies. I can’t really speak of the place since I have yet to go, but he went by Nick’s Vegan which is in the Brewerytown neighborhood of Philly (I think it’s called Brewerytown?).
It’s really great how vegan friendly Philly is becoming! I know it will never be NYC (and it shouldn’t) but there are options popping up left and right!
I had already eaten so Eric grabbed a dessert bar for me. It was delicious! Kind of like a mix between a brownie and a cookie.
And Eric had the Seitan Philly Cheesesteak.
We will definitely be returning soon.
As I mentioned, it’s been so cold! The cats have been following around the sunspots and sunbathing during the day.
Let’s all pretend it’s 80 degrees and sunny, not 20 degrees and windy.
On another note, I’ve been keeping up with my cookbook challenge (sort of). I’ve been trying to make new things a few times a week. I made pizza with potatoes, tempeh and arugula last night. Kind of similar to the awesome pizza at Karyn’s on Green.
And I made a blueberry dressing from The Conscious Cook. I’ve been in a salad slump and I think some new dressings might help (or just warmer weather).
I hope others had a great weekend and actually got out of the house more! I need to figure out some cold weather activities (besides going to the bar to drink). I think I want to host a game night soon!
