Odds and Ends

I hope everyone had a nice holiday!  If you're off work today, congrats.  Today, I'm bringing you some eats from last week, as well as a few things I've found around the internet.  Enjoy!

Is there anything better than breakfast for dinner?  Josh and I are still on a toast + jam + scramble kick.  This week, we even threw in some hash browns.  What did I learn?  I'm not great at making hash browns.  Guess I'll have to keep trying.

Since this is usually the time of year that healthy eating habits go out the window, I've been trying to fill my work lunches with salads, fruit and nuts.

I've been doing a lot of sketching at work, too, which makes me very happy.  Sometimes it feels unreal that I get to draw for a living.  When architecture gets frustrating, which it so often does, I just grab some color pencils and trace paper and go to work.

Of course, I have gone out to eat a bit as well.  More like a lot, actually.  I haven't wanted to stock up on a ton of groceries, because we'll be traveling, so Josh and I found ourselves eating out a lot last weekend.  Some of it was good, some of it wasn't.

We had a great lunch at Mama's Gyros Grill in Sherwood.  I was not expecting to like it so much, but I was pleasantly surprised.  I sent in a write up to the Arkansas Times, so when it comes up, I will link it.

I had a pretty disappointing Thai Beyond Meat Wrap at Tropical Smoothie.  The wrap was just more tortilla than filling, so next time, I think I'll go or the salad.

On a lazy Saturday, we decided to pull up Chef Shuttle and order some tacos from The Fold.  The food was tasty, but they did not follow my instructions to leave cheese of the guac, and they packed my tacos in one big container with Josh's.  Not to mention, the tacos are pretty tiny for their price.  The chips were good, though, and the salsa was as well.  It worked in a pinch, but it's an expensive pinch.

Odds and Ends from Around the Net

I had an article published on Arkansas Food and Farm.  They are a part of our Arkansas Times family, so I may see more cross publishing.  Read: That's So Raw is a Local Vegan Delight.

I really liked Produce on Parade's take on the new book, Veganish.

This article on The Cost of Getting Lean was pretty interesting.  It basically breaks down fitness results in relation to time you need to commit to diet and exercise.

For a dose of Architecture, watch this time lapse video of an art museum being constructed.  My favorite part of a building is when you see the bones start to go up.

I can't wait to veganize this polenta stuffed poblano pepper from Edible Perspective.

For something sweet, this pumpkin chocolate pudding cake looks amazing.  Seems par for the course from the amazing Oh She Glows.

Have a great weekend!


I'd love to hear from you!
