I want to say thank you so much for all the Thanksgiving suggestions that you have given me. I was asked to bring a salad, but now I need to decide what to take along with that. I like the idea of some sort of casserole. I will let you know after Thanksgiving what I end up making.
I've been so busy that I haven't had time to make anything new and exciting. The other night I cooked some crowder peas (which is about the only pea that Tony likes). I decided to add some of my homemade green tomato salsa to them and WOW....that was it and ever so tasty! Tony also cut up some sweet potatoes and fried them in a non stick skillet with some vegan butter, cinnamon, Red Robin seasoning, and a tad bit of brown sugar. That turned out amazing too. We also took some fresh corn out of the freezer and warmed that up along with a couple of vegan sausage patties. This was a fast yummy supper.
Sunday I was craving fruit, so I whipped up a simple smoothie that consisted of a frozen fruit mixture of strawberries, peaches, pineapples and mangoes. I added a tablespoon of wheat germ and used almond milk. It was so good that I had to make another one Monday morning. I find myself now that it is cooler not eating as much fruit. I guess my body is needing fruit, because I have really been craving it lately. Smoothies seem to be the easiest fix for me. How do you make sure you eat enough fruits in the winter time?
I have found some hot tea that we just love. My new favorite is the Papaya and Passion Fruit Green Tea. Have you ever tried The Tea Nation teas? I haven't tried many hot teas, but out of the few brands that I have tried, this is my favorite so far. I've never been much of a hot tea drinker, but these teas have turned me into one. Tony has never like hot teas either, but he loves the Raspberry Green Tea. What's your favorite brand of hot tea?
I hope everyone is having a great week so far!
