Guest Bathroom & Veggie Recap

With the exception of a few piddly things (like putting the outlet back in the wall), I have finished our guest bathroom in the new house. I’ve always loved yellow and grey bathrooms. Now I have one! I think it turned out great, if I say so myself.


My art work!


I’m so excited to finally have a room done. I’ve almost got the spare bedroom done as well! I’ll have those pics probably later this week.


Week one of my month as a vegetarian came to an end today! Here’s the week’s food wrap-up! (I reused pics on days I had the same thing) Links to recipe posts are attached to the days.

Friday: leftover veggies for lunch


Saturday: leftover enchilada for lunch


Finally, today! Sunday:

Two Days Worth

I can’t seem to get the puppy to sleep passed 4 AM. I’m very thankful that he’s a good sleeper but an hour later wake up call would be awesome! He’ll get there eventually. :)

Gonna do a two day wrap up here.


For breakfast I had a little blackberry Chobani, Rainier cherries and a string cheese.

Lunch was some leftover veggie lasagna, a salad with red wine vinegar and a DP.

After some piddling around the house and playtime with dogs and kitties, I cooked a quick dinner.

Various roasted veggies (squash, green tomato, potatoes, broccoli, green beans and sweet peppers) with some beluga lentils. These lentils have 42g of protein per cup!




My fall allergies are slowly creeping back in. I had to start my medicine again. So I spent most of the day in a allergy medicine fog. It always takes me a few days to get used to the way that it makes me feel. Weeeeeee! LOL

Breakfast was a complete repeat of Wednesday.

Quick lunch of mac & cheese.


Fonzie has started laying like a toad frog. I was wondering when he was going to start. Every dog we’ve ever had “like” him (boxer, mastiff, etc) has laid like this. So cute with his cob web on his back. :)


Sweet Potato & Black Bean Enchiladas

Filling Ingredients:

Can of black beans, rinsed and drained
Cooked sweet potato, cubed (I made 2 but only used one)
Sun dried tomatoes
3 garlic gloves, rough chopped
Small can of green chilies
Juice of one lime
Jalapeño, rough chopped
Tsp cumin
Tsp chili powder
Tsp paprika
Salt & pepper


Other Ingredients:

Jar of salsa verde
Soft corn tortillas
Block of Colby/Monterey jack cheese, shredded
Tomatoes, copped
Onion, chopped
Sour cream

Mix filling ingredients up in a large bowl.

Pour a thin layer of verde sauce in the bottom of a casserole dish.



Put a little cheese on a tortilla and add a generous large spoon full of mixture (the tortillas I used were pretty small). Roll and started filling up the dish.

Topped with the rest of the verde sauce and shredded cheese.


Bake at 350F for about 30 minutes.

Top with tomato, onion and sour cream. We also had some rice on the side. Delicious!

Life Lost

As someone that battles depression (not nearly as serious though), I feel heartbroken that suicide became an option for him. I hope you have found the peace you have longed for. My heart and prayers go out to those who loved you most. May they find a moment of comfort remembering your smile.


Today started out much like yesterday. I had grapes and a pink grapefruit Chobani for breakfast.

Lunch was leftovers from Sunday’s dinner. A bella burger and sweet potato puffs.

I kept dinner super simple! More leftovers! Haha! I heated up the leftover lasagna from yesterday and added another lil salad to it. Instead of tomato, I had some sweet peppers on the salad this time. True to form…it was better today than yesterday!

After dinner, I had a handful of Rainier cherries. I’m sure gonna miss these babies when the season is done.

That’s all she wrote for today! It’s bedtime!
