Celebrating Vegan Food
Hello all!! Are you psyched for the weekend?!
I'm pretty excited all around today as there is a great deal happening on my end.
Florida Trip in a Week
I'm starting to get excited about being in the warm weather a week from today. That's right, I leave for The Sunshine State next Friday for a week of fun with the kiddies!!
Gianna Special Day at School
This morning, I headed over to celebrate mass for the monthly First Friday celebration with the girls' school. Gianna was selected to do one of the scripture readings for which she was practicing all week. She did great!
Foodie Friday with Tanya
It's Tanya's turn today to share a tasty tidbit! Her foodie stories always make my mouth water! Many people don't realize that Vegan fare, when done correctly can be absolutely DEELISH!!
I'm not saying that you have to become a vegan, by any means, but, incorporating a few vegan meals into your weekly meal plan can prove to be both healthy and economical.
And why not get the inside skinny from a long-time, committed vegan who is also a great Italian cook - Yup, TC's Tanya! CLICK HERE for the story.
Here is a great link to All Recipes for some amazing Vegan Recipes. I particularly love the vegan cupcake and zucchini with chick pea and mushroom stuffing!
And while we're on the subject of Vegan - did you know that as of February 17th, Starbucks will be offering a new vegan, non-dairy beverage option to its customers - coconut milk. That's right, based on 84,000 customer votes at My Starbucks Idea, coconut milk was the number one requested non-dairy choice. For the full story by Rachel Tepper at Yahoo Foods, CLICK HERE.
Hope this is the start of a beautiful weekend for ya!
Tanya's Daily Scoop
You've got all the tools you need!
Good Day Everyone! And a good day it will be!
Can you what today is?
I'll give you a sec...
Not only is it Friday and the start of another Fabulous weekend, but it's the day I start on another vacation!!!
Yeah, yeah, I've heard it all before...
"Didn't you just get home?"
"Are you ever not on vacation"
"Your life is a vacation!"
"You're so lucky!"
Yadda, Yadda, Yadda -
Guess what, you are all right!
I did just get home from an absolutely fabulous vacation in Quebec! And right before that I also just got back from my Ski Utah and Tahoe Road Trip!
But that's what I love, and I'm doing what I love!
And I highly recommend that you too start doing what you love!
It's never too late to start!
Just make the decision and get out there and DO IT!
Life is precious and certainly not meant to be wasted on being miserable - I'm not saying that you (the reader) is miserable, but I know waaaaay too many people who are.
And why are they miserable???
Let's just start with the fact that they aren't happy with the path that they are going down and that they very well might have been on for quite some time.
Ya know what...it sucks!
But there is only one person who can make the decision to make that CHANGE, and that is YOU (or whoever THAT person in our lives is)!
So if you really really want it, you already have all the tools that you need.
You might need a little guidance, and perhaps a nudge - but consider this your NUDGE!
You deserve to be happy, and while your happiness my not lie in non-stop traveling, you know what makes you happy and only you have the key to your own happiness.
All you have to do is take that first step, which is usually stepping away from fear, to unlock the door to a whole new world.
Remember that true happiness comes from within and everything is about perspective.
So if you are reading this and just thinking that it is just a bunch of HOG WASH, just ask yourself if you are happy with your life (truly happy), and if not then at least start by changing your attitude and perspective.
Because if you love your life, you life will love you right back - tenfold!
Ok, back to me...I'm heading on my Ski Trip to Vail and to watch the FIS Alpine World Competition later today and I am totally stoked!
But first I've gotta take care of a few things, and one of them being taking Cosette to her Horseback riding lesson!
We visited the other stables yesterday and it was so cute just how happy Cosette was to give Dream her new Halter and Lead rope souvenir from Quebec.
Another is to share with you this weeks FOODIE FRIDAY! A lovely dining experience from Mont-Tremblant, Canada. I hope that you enjoy!
Next stop Vail, Colorado!
See ya there :)
