I’m not too into meat substitutes but sometimes I get a craving. Last night I sautéed up some Trader Joe’s beef-less strips with some roasted garlic gray salt and sriracha for dinner. Yum.

It’s a very sad day when I run out of eggs. This morning, I made a little pot of oatmeal which my girls must have loved because they ate it all. Every last bit. It took me over 15 minutes which is already more time I usually spend on breakfast. I was starving but ready … Continue reading
