After a disgustingly long day of work, I found myself arriving home to the most adorable culinary display. While I was away, a certain Manfriend of mine was at home diligently making us a three course meal.
Since I turn into a feverish troll if I go too long without food, an appe-teaser was prepared while dinner finished cooking. High protein bagels topped with with jalapenos smothered in vegan cheese. 15 creative points go to the man with the beard.
hoarding equally sharing each bite size bagel, dinner was served.
Spaghetti and beet-balls. Yes I said beet-balls. Paired with roasted Brussels, vegan sausage, and grilled asparagus. The beet-balls were a combination of kidney beans, quinoa, and an entire beet. The beet was easily the size of my fist.
I can still taste the earthy flavor of this beet-ball. Another 30 creative points for the man with the face fuzz.
Since no meal is complete without a sugary treat (did you catch that wicked awesome rhyme I just threw down?) I fueled my sweet tooth demon with some of this vegan friendly ice cream.
If there are two people eating out of this pint, it’s acceptable to consume all four servings in one sitting. I promise. Bearded dragon gets 25 more creative points, giving him a running total of 70 creative points for one meal! He cashed in his points for a set of fake vampire teeth, tootsie rolls, and a man made cape designed for high speed running. Chuck E. Cheese has nothing on my point rewards.
Sunday I am running my April race. The distance is shorter than the last race (another 5K), but I am running this race for one single reason. Doughnuts. The race is put on by Top Pot Doughnuts, a wildly popular doughnut shop in Seattle. This race was decided on over a month ago (before I went vegan for a bit) so I struggled with the idea of consuming a non vegan doughnut. I decided I wouldn’t be able to forgive myself for passing up a free doughnut that I will have earned. With that said, I will not only be partaking in a free non vegan donut, I hope to make it to Mighty-O Donut shop for a vegan friendly doughnut too. Balance..it’s all about balance.
I knew I had picked a winner to hang around after this particular conversation.
Me: “All of the donuts at Mighty-O are vegan!”
Manfriend: “I am buying SO many.”
Me: “We should get a dozen.”
Manfriend: “For EACH of us.”
Ohh..swoon. Two dozen donuts, means I don’t have to share.
Q: What’s the most unique “ball” creation you’ve had with spaghetti? Beet-balls for me! I loved every last bite. Next up: Brownie balls. Chocolate and spag never tasted so good.
