A-ruggalach


It’s sunny,It’s snowy,

And it’s semi-warm for this time of year.

30 F?

But,

dancing > running

every time.

So I popped a date or two and hauled tire to BodyJam class at the gym, despite the slick roads.

So worth it! I’ll take body rolls over jog sprints anyday.

We have company tonight, so I stopped by the grocery to get some essentials for a vegan dinner: avocados, mixed greens, and vegetable broth, and crackers. Yeah, we’re cool as cucumbers over here!

Then, breakfast:

1/3 cup rolled oats, 1/4 cup pumpkin, 1/4  persimmon, 1/2 banana, 1/4 tsp ginger, cloves, nutmeg, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, shredded coconut, sunflower seed butter

Phew!

With a little bit of agave nectar, which Mom was so nice to include in my stocking (!)

(except I can’t open it correctly. help?)

Still playing with the new DSLR:

I was going to sit down and read the manual, but among my other cracked-out behaviors today, I realized I had to be at work. Like, pronto.

So instead of preparing the acorn squash and apple soup I had planned for our guests tonight (I was so excited; one of our guests is a fellow (graduated) religion major and vegan), my mom made a soup and salad combo while I was at work.

Salad: mixed greens, avocado, apple, walnuts

Soup: diced tomatoes, veggie broth, carrots…other delicious vegan things?

Much better than any canned tomato soup, that’s for sure.

I did manage to capture dessert:

Ruggalach!

If you’ve never had this Jewish dessert, you must try it.

Screw that “it’s only dessert if it involves chocolate rule.” Raisins are really tasty, mmk?

Mom found it at the grocery, but fresh from the bakery would be amazing. Remind me to find a Jewish bakery and pick up some challah bread while I’m at it. Yum.

It’s not vegan- it contains cream cheese- but it sure is tasty. Maybe I’ll attempt it soon?

And then I’ll serve it with arugula salad so I can say, “Tonight we have arugula and aruggalach…”

Oy vey.
