Tamales, fake snow and a Tuna Christmas

Saturday my family and I went to Pearl Brewery for the inaugural Tamales at Pearl. Tamales are very important to the people of San Antonio, so I wasn’t at all surprised to find that a huge crowd of people showed up. It was a beautiful day; sunny, cool and breezy. I love winter in San…

Vegan cultured coconut milk dressing recipe

Tonight for dinner I made salad and it was all my husband’s idea. Yes my meat loving husband wanted salad for dinner, my eyes light up when I heard this.  We are going skiing in a few weeks so he has been exercising and eating lighter dinners to gear up for it. Needless to say…

Typical Wednesday night dinner

I thought I’d share what a typical dinner looks like at my house. Most of you know that my Husband and son eat an omni diet and I don’t. At mealtime our table typically has a lot of different foods on it. Here is what our dinner looked like tonight. Ignore the Legos in the…

Thanksgiving recap

Hope everyone had a very happy Thanksgiving. Ours was very good, but I was glad to spend a quiet day at home today without any company. It always takes so long to clean up after a meal like that. My menu was slightly different then I originally planned. I ran out of time so I…

Planning a vegan-ish Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is tomorrow and I’m still finalizing my cooking plans. This year our Thanksgiving will be pretty quiet, most of my family will be in New York fawning over my new niece so that means less people at our house. I will be the only person in the crowd not eating meat or dairy, so…

Movie night and thinking about death

After school fun

Please don't pick on my diet

This weekend was a little rough for me, I felt like it was meat eaters vs. plant eaters at times. Especially when my husband and son made their bacon and egg breakfast tacos on Sunday. I try not to separate myself from the guys when they eat meat, but I really, really, really don’t like…

Heirloom apples and a quick vegan dinner

I have been feasting on heirloom apples lately. Check out these beauties. The gold ones are Spitzenburg and the red ones are Black Oxford. When my son saw them he asked me if they were real. They look a little bit unusual when you compare them to a red delicious or a granny smith. They…
