Good Morning! Happy Monday!
I hope all my fellow Canadian’s enjoyed their Thanksgiving holiday! Celebrate this Thanksgiving Monday holiday off from work and hopefully everyone else had a great weekend!
Nothing better then lounging around on a Sunday morning with a cup off coffee and blog reading. Since it’s our Thanksgiving today, I am more into Fall flavours than ever.
Please don’t get too annoyed that I am Fall and Pumpkin obsessed. I swear it will wear off shortly…or not.
Let’s get to the fun things that have been happening the past few days.
My parents went to the Pumpkin Patch without me and took this picture to show me. How dare they pick up pumpkins without all my wonderful pumpkin knowledge.
Yep, it was truly amazing. Extra creamy and delicious!
Kristin you were totally right about adding these little gems in, purely awesome.
Oh boy, this was good stuff. I was very sad to have it come to an end.
Tempeh Masala (serves one)
* vegan and gluten free
- one serving tempeh (coated with curry spices)
- 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
- one large chopped tomato
- 3 tablespoons coconut milk (full fat, canned)
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 1/2 tablespoon nutritional yeast
- 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
Preheat the oven to 400 and place 1/2 of the coconut oil onto a baking sheet with the tomato and tempeh and let that bake for about 15-20 minutes.
While baking, place a skillet over medium heat and added the remaining ingredients until heated and the mixture began to thicken a bit.
Then add the tomatoes and tempeh to the sauce until well combined and I served it over quinoa and roasted broccoli slaw. Avocado on the side.
On Saturday, I made sure to extend my birthday and keep celebrating throughout the weekend. I guess now my birthday is officially over.
We celebrated with drinks and tequila shots…which makes for a truly lazy and unproductive Sunday;)
I also made sure to spend some time outside. I’ve been enjoying taking walks and celebrating the gorgeousness in nature and connecting my mind with the beauty of the outdoors. I just adore this time of year and watching the leafs and colours change all around.
To get in the Thanksgiving mood for today, I lit up my favourite pumpkin spice candle and got the ambiance on. It smells so delightful!
Even better because as it was lit I baked up a loaf of vegan pumpkin bread.
Recipe to come tomorrow;)
Wow, just realized everything in this post is vegan. Coolness.
What are you thankful for today?
Did you do anything fun this weekend?
Have a splendid Thanksgiving to all my Canadian readers! And have a great Monday to everyone else!
