The mouse will ..... go to work, do some yoga, bake, cook, eat dinner with parents, emboss, sleep, and of course, blog! John is returning home tonight from a short business trip, so I've had some extra time on my hands. Tonight I went over to my parents house for dinner. My mom experimented with a new recipe, quinoa risotto from vegetarian times. The verdict was it was alright, but not our favorite (or easiest) quinoa dish. On the side was some roasted asparagus, my mom's amazing homemade bread, and a yummy fruit salad with toasted almonds. Plus my mom made some more of those Best Vegan Brownies Ever which we topped with some vanilla soy ice cream. Yum.
After dinner, we did some embossing for the wedding favors. What fun, I think I may just start embossing everything. And it's so easy! I'm not exactly the crafty type (thank goodness my mom is!), but I managed to pick this up. I'll post sometime soon about specifically what we were embossing, it's a part of the wedding planning activities that I'm very proud about.
Last night I had breakfast for dinner, which I always loved growing up. I made blueberry banana oatmeal pancakes. Basically used the same recipe for VWAV banana-raisin-oatmeal waffles except no raisins and added blueberries. These were delicious, and made plenty to munch on for later. On the side my favorite breakfast faux sausage by Gardenburger.
And finally I was a good fiance (that sounds funny still!) and baked for my future husband. A week or so ago in his drugged daze (he's on painkillers for a slipped disc, ouch), he cried out for goldfish. And what a coincidence that Celine over at Have Cake, Will Travel just posted her recipe for Cheezy Quackers! I bought some cute little animal cookie cutters and made a bunch of these cheezy little critters.
It was tough not to munch on them before he returns. I thought they turned out wonderfully, very addictive!! Here they are following each other one by one in a little shadowbox....
