11/27 Drink It Up-Aloe Vera Juice

Since I have been working at Trader Joe’s I have come to realize that many people are consuming Aloe Vera juice as a health tonic. It is a popular item at the Joe’s and it has piqued my curiosity. I have to be honest, I did not think that people ingested it. I thought it [...]

11/26 Chicken Run

Thanksgiving at our house started with Meals on Wheels deliveries and eased into a full day movie marathon. We continued with our Hitchcock addiction and added a few other movies for a dose of sanity. One of the non-Hitchcock movies we watched was Chicken Run from Dreamworks.  It is an animated movie set on a [...]

11/25 Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving. We delivered Meals on Wheel this morning and here is some of the artwork that was made for the seniors we visited. I heart hand turkeys. The last photo is of Chloe and how she spent her Thanksgiving. Have a delicious  day full of relaxation and fun.

Before we get to the food, I have an  amazing addition to the giveaway…. a one of a kind  cuff that tells the world you are VEGAN or a vegan wannabe and proud! Frankly, I would wear this as a conversation piece even if I weren’t vegan. It is hand crafted with love from recycled [...]

11/23 Fresh Cranberry Sauce

I love cranberry sauce from a can and am not ashamed to admit it. I crave cranberries with my Tofurky and have not yet tasted a fresh sauce that I love as much as a good solid can of whole berry sauce. It is like survival food because it comes out of the can looking [...]

11/20 Vegan Lip Balm & Soaps

Hi my name is Sherry and I am addicted to lip balm. I don’t know when or how it began, but this is my reality. The tricky part is that even though my addiction is out of control, I am kind of particular about it. Over the counter balm wont appease the monkey on my [...]

11/19 Gimme Five-Breakfast Sliders

I go to sleep at night looking forward to breakfast. Leaving the house without breakfast would be tantamount to leaving without a top on…I just wouldn’t do it.  Sometimes I crave oatmeal or smoothies, while other mornings I wake up wanting savory things like hummus or left over Tofurky. On weekends, breakfast can stretch out [...]
