I hope this day finds you well, and with a holiday away from work.

Jason took Friday off, and… I haven’t actually known what day it is for many days. We went out to breakfast at one of our favorite places Friday morning, we went to Guitar Center and the plant store and I bought ice cream and I ordered a refrigerator. We ate ramen burgers for lunch.

Saturday we went to a matinee – the new Woody Allen movie. We planted our new plants – a palm in remembrance of Dad, and some flowering plants. We visited with neighbors and we watched many episodes of Orange is the New Black. Whoa. Have you seen this? It’s GOOD.

Yesterday we went to another favorite restaurant, spent time with a friend who really loved Dad. I took a glorious nap in the afternoon, and made a perfectly crisp grilled tomato and cheese sandwich for dinner.

On the first Monday of Vegan Mofo, I’m bringing you a collection of your favorite Meatless Monday recipes (based on the numbers). I am happy to say some of my favorites are included – and a few that I want to make again soon:

Sounds like you had a lot of fun this weekend :) We had a final summer fling and had a BBQ with lots of family and friends. I haven’t been following spabettie that long so it’s great to see some of these past recipes. The udon dish and the edamame flatbreads are going on the musty-try list!

What a fantastic, drool-worthy collection of recipes, Kristina! I’m about to go to bed now and I know I’ll be dreaming of all those chocolates desserts. :)

Sounds like you had an amazing weekend! We did a little relaxing and some work. This week is going to be a crazy one for us. I start teaching classes at the community center and Tony just took on a new project. Everything here looks perfect! I still have my eye on that tomato chia jam. I really need to make that! I hope you have an incredible week my friend! xoxo

Dammit Kristina, you’ve made me drool all over myself! UGH! ;)

Your day sounds lovely, just know that you’re still in my thoughts and occasionally I send you mental hugs. Maybe a mental cocktail, too.

I can’t wait to see more posts! Yay!
