Memorial Day 2001

Memorial Day, 8 years ago, Zak and I were newly married and on our way to Aruba!

Memorial Day 2009? We cleaned the garage.  8 years.  Sounds about right.

On tonight’s dinner menu: black bean burgers with a side of kale chips.  McDonald’s ain’t got nothing on this version of burger and fries.


I first heard about Kale Chips on Fat Free Vegan, but she didn’t have much luck with them, so it wasn’t until I read Kath’s post about them that I finally tried them. If you’ve yet to discover kale chips, it’s about time you did!

Skinny Bitch

I finished Skinny Bitch, by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin this weekend. This book is for anyone looking for a good bitch slap about their eating, drinking, smoking, processed food, sugar, meat and dairy eating addictions. There wasn’t really anything in this book that was new to me, but it definitely reaffirmed my choice to be vegetarian and made me think more about my dairy consumption. Did I mention the authors are both vegan and that’s the diet they are advocating for? Oh yeah, sorry. The authors are both vegan and they advocate a vegan diet.
