this is my new bike. . . i love him. he goes so fast i can ride for miles and miles and miles and just enjoy. . . seriously madly in love with this bike moon from our sky lite a few days ago, feels like a year ago miyata, nine twelve. . . he's pink and has a little rainbow too. . . . i rode probably 30 miles since yesterday, it's so great.
i LOVE caitlin shearer's art. she's giving 20% off of all of her prints in her etsy shop with coupon code PRINTSCHARMING if i do 120 minutes of massage today at work i'm going to buy one. . . which one lovely lady to get though???
so had an amazing week really. i felt like there was date with destiny after date with destiny. i'm not quite sure where i'm going but i know i must be headed in the right direction.
i got to go to the most amazing show on monday night! the first moment my friends cadee and sarah got to the bluebird (my favorite denver venue) for the wanda jackson show, we met the opening band, the Dusty 45's, who are from seattle. the crowd was amazing. my outfit had come together out of no where (i'm working on drawing it for what i wore today). the show was so fun, i danced and danced and afterwards and then had some friend therapy that was SO needed. i told those ladies they should charge!
on wednesday i had a meeting with capital hill whole foods about bringing my chair massage business in. . . i got in.
i have so many work opportunities right now. so blessed and a bit overwhelmed. trying to figure out how this should look. how to delegate. i am so blessed right now, just need more time!
then i stopped by this antique store i haven't been in for probably 15 years. here are a few of the things i'm dreaming about for when we can start renovating our house. . . this vase will be the center piece of the mantle these 2 chairs would look perfect on either side of the fire place i just loved this water color! she's so pretty! look at this embroidery! i love it! pretty sweet!
anyway, then it was the year anniversary of CHOMP! the vegan community dinner we go to. see my friend josh, that runs it, and i have talked about opening a vegan grocery store, a la food fight, in portland. it was an amazing night. great food and it was just fun!
last night we went to a art opening @ my friend cadee's salon. there were a bunch of people there i didn't even know were going to be there! my outfit came together again out of no where! it felt serendipitous. . .
and i'm going to be having Sundays off! that's my goal, having sundays off. . . it may become my favorite day again!
so whole foods had a vegan posole soup the other day so i thought i would make one. it turned out soooo yummy. 1/2 # dry posole & beans (i used pinto) zucchini mushrooms 2 ears of corn onion 3 tomatoes cholula braggs amino olive &/or flax oil or some high quality oil dried thyme & cilantro cumin chili powder veg broth garlic toppings: avocado, tomato, onion, fresh cilantro & lime
i soaked the beans and posole (hominy) overnight and after rinsing them a few times then woke them up with a bath in the crock pot this morning with mushroom broth, a couple garlic cloves and a bay leaf. i had taken onion, zucchini and mushrooms and marinated them last night with cholula hot sauce, braggs amino acid, crushed garlic & a little olive oil (i also added some flax seed oil). i cooked the beans and hominy a few hours then added the veggies and some chopped tomatoes. Added Cumin, some more braggs, chili powder, dried thyme & cilantro & powdered garlic and chopped some fresh corn right off the cob in there cooked until hominy was tender (a few more hours). . . topped with fresh cilantro, tomato, avocado and a squeeze of lime! add more cholula to taste and drizzle with flax seed oil if you want. YUM!!! that's how you do a vegan dinner (and lunch tomorrow!)
