I noticed that kitty is having trouble getting a good day's rest in my bed. I figured it may be due to all the light that's streaming though the nearby window.
So I sewed curtains for our bedroom out of this great fabric adorned with orange birdies. (Fabric is Dolce by Tanya Whelan)
Kitty loves his new curtains. Photos coming as soon as the sun comes out. In the meantime, It's Monday so my kiddos are home and we're off to our favorite hiking trail in the park.
On an unrelated note, for the past year I have cut down on my meat consumption by not eating meat for breakfast or lunch. I've been trying to come up with quick, healthy and yummy meat free meals. We eat lots of beans and rice + roasted veggies. I also eat eggs on whole wheat toast + salad. I recently discovered (quite by accident) that a thinned down hummus makes a thick and creamy salad dressing full of fiber and protein. Just blend a can of garbanzo beans with its liquid, a couple tablespoons of olive oil, juice of 1 lemon, 1 garlic clove + salt and pepper until smooth and pour over your favorite salad.
Above is our lunch of quinoa cooked in chicken broth + stir fried napa cabbage, carrots, bell peppers, onions and garlic. Quinoa is a healthy substitute for rice and the cabbage mixture is my version of a deconstructed egg roll - all the filling without any of the wrapping or frying. I'd love to hear about your quick and meat free go-to lunches.
Happy Monday to you!
