I think that food is something we always remember and it is great for locking memories in, like grandmothers cinnamon rolls or moms pancakes. Every Sunday we had pancakes or crepes for dinner as kids. For me it is something very special and always reminds careless days, so as adult I try to make them on Sundays for breakfast. However, traditional pancakes are not very good in nutrition and for those weight conscious are not super healthy either.
Everything tastes like pumpkin now. And that is good, this is what Fall is all about. Nice cozy warming spicy and fragrant food. I always rock my pumpkin-lentil soup at this time of year, and recipe for it is coming very soon, however I felt adventurous another day and decided to try salad, including butternut squash I picked in my grandmothers garden.
I used to question vegan versions of non-vegan dishes in the past. I do not understand why these dishes should be made non-vegan style. I believe there are certain dishes that are the best in their original version, like shepherds pie or chili. However, I recently changed my opinion about burgers – I think vegan burger is a great way to introduce more proteins into my diet and also add another texture to a food. I’v tried several recipes and I have to admit I finally found few variations I likes, and, most importantly, they were good enough for my husband to like them too!
I finally started having proper breakfast everyday.
Long time no see! So many things happened during our absence, that I am not ever sure where to start, but I hope to update on everything in upcoming posts. The main thing is probably us now having three (!) dogs.
We were very exited last year create new resolutions and start making them true. However, last year was a real rollercoaster for us. Everything changed – new apartment, new job for Irmantas, unexpected surgery for me, learning how to knit, our dogs cancer and death. We failed in so many resolutions, but we also gained so much knowledge about what we want to do and how, thanks for these great, not always pleasant experiences. I am now so happy that finally, in my late twenties I found my way and maybe one day I could say all my desires and dreams are fulfilled.
