Same old, same old for the last day of 2009. I went for a run in the morning. It was beautful, sunny, and warm. Then I came back and had a Banana-Strawberry Smoothie with Flax and Tahina.
Lunch was leftover Sunshine Burgers (tofu, beans and veggies) on a huge salad with peanuts and sun-dried tomatoes and tahina dressing:
Dinner will be out somewhere with my sweetie. Hope I find something vegan.
Last night I went to the monthly meeting of my bookclub. I'm in a great bookclub with wonderful, witty, smart, and fun-loving women. I guess someone's been taking a peek at my blog or talkin' behind my back, because almost the entire spread was VEGAN! There was a crazy delicious roasted pepper soup made creamy with spelt milk of all things! I'm going to try to re-create that tomorrow. There was a great salad, roasted veggies, steamed green beans, some fabulous vegetable thing wrapped in phyllo dough, mulled cider AND hot spiced wine! I just kept thinking, you know you have good friends when they tolerate your food weirdness without so much as a single peep. Wow.
So tomorrow will be the first day of 2010. How did we manage to pass an entire decade in the 2000's already? Wasn't it just Y2K? I hope 2010 will be a good year for us here on Earth. I hope there will be peace and quiet with our neighbors here in the Middle East. I hope Gilad Shalit will come home alive and well. I wish you all health, happiness and great vegetable-eating in the Brand New Year!
