I am very blessed in life and in general I am a pretty happy person, but every once in a while I just feel elated and today is one of those days!!!
I don’t really know why but I don’t really care either!
Romaine, cucumber, carrot, baby beets (hence the pink hue to everything!), radishes, and the rest of the baked marinated tofu from the other day.
I’m not sure if scientifically you can get a high like this from food, but I’m going with it 🙂
More likely though I think it’s because I just had one of the best weekends of my life!
On Friday, H and the cats and I had a very chill night watching the original Batman. Then on Saturday morning I got into the kitchen to do some baking for an upcoming blog post on Chic Vegan…
…and had my first experience making Coconut Whipped Cream!
To make it, I used this tutorial from Oh She Glows. I ended up adding about 3 tsp. of confectioner’s sugar and a full 1/2 tsp. of vanilla extract.
Holy crap it was rich and delicious! Really easy to make too…I kind of can’t believe I had never done it before.
And if you’re wondering what the hell that is, fear not! All will be revealed in due time 🙂
That afternoon, we dug up all of the waterproof gear we’ve ever owned and headed down to Foxborough for Patriots vs. Colts in the AFC divisional playoffs!!!
Oh my God I had the frickin BEST time at both the tailgate and the game, totally in spite of the stupid rain!
Our seats were incredible!
And the atmosphere was so charged up! This one took the cake for my favorite game ever, even surpassing the divisional playoff game from 2 years ago (against the Broncos and Tim Tebow).
Oh, yeah, and they won 🙂
Sunday by contrast was just ultra-relaxing, watching the other two divisional playoff games, eating junk food, spending time with my hubby, and cuddling with the cats.
How was your weekend? Does anyone else ever get weirdly elated for no apparent reason??
