Saturday: Another drop dead gorgeous day in the 60's! TheHub went to the office until about noon so I was able to do some serious laundry and a few household chores before he came home just in time for us to watch the second half of the Alabama/Arkansas basketball game. Bama won but played badly and eked out a win (got lucky)

I recently saw a recipe for a vegan filling for tacos. I wish I had saved the site and I would share it here, but I didn't. It was a couple of weeks ago and I am sorry but I am just not willing to look through that much computer history to find it. I had remembered the main ingredients and how things were processed, but not the actual measurements or what the "real" ingredient list was, so this is my attempt to recreate what I remembered. To be honest with you, except for the nutritional yeast, this is what I use to season ground beef for tacos. The amounts are all estimates because I do not really measure seasonings, but I am pretty decent when it comes to eyeballing ingredient measurements.

Saturday: I woke much earlier than I would have liked to, but I was in bed much earlier than I usually go to sleep. After a dismal weather day Friday, I woke to a drop dead gorgeous cold day. TheHub and I sat and had coffee together before he went into the office for a few hours.

TheHub loves Italian foods and since he was on his own for meals last week I thought I might make something specifically for his tastes. At the same time it had to be something I could ketofy for me with little trouble. Lasagna in a bowl was the perfect compromise.

1. What was your favorite meal as a child?

Well the Wicked Witch of the West A.K.A. the keto quick start diet is dead, and I can plan actual meals. I have decided, as much as I did not like eating the soup all the time, I will most likely eat it for lunch everyday. It a fast and easy way to get some substantial veggies into the diet. So, since I will not be eating the leftovers, I need to either cook just enough for the two of us to eat or I need to cook enough for a second leftover meal. I have a lot of vegetables on hand to use with whatever I dig out of the freezer, so unless there are some super deals to be found, I don't even need to go to the grocery store this week.

Saturday: I messed around the house during the morning because TheHub ran into the office. When he returned we made a few plans for the month/year researching a few places we would like to go on long weekend trips. I am married to an accountant by trade, so we do extensive research. (Think hours) When we had finished looking
at virtually the same thing over and over at all the interesting sites that we could find, we were getting hungry. I am normally not fond of restaurants, but I agreed to go to one if it was not crowded. Since it was about 2:30 I figured the crowd would be gone. We went to Ash, an out of the way wood fired grill. There were only 7 other customers and we were all spread out in a pretty decent sized space. The lunch was good but being out somewhere I felt safe was wonderful.
Sunday: Sunday at about 2:30 in the morning I woke from a dead sleep feeling not so great. I was freezing and had a miserable headache, so I got out of bed and went into the den, sat in the recliner with a hot pad and a ton of blankets. I finally fell back to sleep (sitting up) at about 8 and slept for a couple of hours. TheHub got hot water ready for a cup of tea, which helped a little. I spent a lazy day in yoga pants and a hoodie watching ballgames, Yellowstone, and Ozark while sipping on hot tea. One of the biggest joys of the day was digging out a wonderful throw DIL2 gave me for Christmas several year ago. It was a perfect (and perfectly warm) feel better blanket.
