Chris and I decided to visit Wheatsville Co-op to see what they had for gluten-free vegan breads and things. There wasn't a lack of gluten-free vegan quickbreads and cookies, but no yeast breads to speak of. Alas. We ordered a couple of sandwiches from their deli which were really enjoyable. I forgot my phone, though, and have no pictures to share with you.
I made Field Roast "Frankfurters" for dinner. This brand makes excellent meat substitutes. I am also fond of their "Apple" sausages. Fresh watermelon on the side! And I tried adding a bit of amaretto to my ginger ale and that was fun!
I watched PBS's 4th of July program with fireworks and other forms of patriotism. And I'll probably watch CBS's program next.
But in the meantime, my friend Amy nominated me for the Ms. Sparkly's Ten Commandments blog award. I don't know what the 10 commandments the award refer to, but it made me happy to be acknowledged for my efforts and wanted to respect that by answering the questions associated with being nominated. So, here goes.
*Describe yourself in 7 words:
Creative, culinary, instinctual, polite, strange, earthy, and ambitious.
*What keeps you up at night?
Thinking about the future, optimism, hoping for a better life and the excitement that things might work out.
*Whom would you like to be?
Me at my fullest potential!
*What am I wearing right now?
A magenta skirt, blue bandana, and this Star Wars t-shirt.
*What scares you?
Being discriminated against, the thought of my doggie running away, car accidents, being robbed. This is a grim question! Lol.
*What are the best and worst things about blogging?
The best thing about blogging is being able to share what I love with others who I have things in common with. It gives me a creative outlet and is providing me with a chance to find another career path. I've struggled to find my way in life and I'm pretty confident in my ability to keep growing the lizz delicious blog as well as my ability to brand and market my efforts. I don't know that there's something "worst" about it, but it can definitely be time consuming. It is becoming a bit challenging, too, because my camera needs to be replaced...
*Slankets, yes or no?
We don't have Slankets in the US but we have Snuggies. I am officially CON. Fleece and I do not mix. Thank you, static electricity.
*Tell us something about the person who nominated you.
Amy is just lovely. She is from Ireland and I have known her for a long time. She has a beautiful voice and is a joy to spend time with. I have only been in her company once, but I have never stopped following her activities online. She inspires me to be more crafty!
*My next step in this award is to nominate 10 others.
Unfortunately, I don't have 10 other people to nominate! I don't have many blog-friends, but I do read a handful of them, so here are a couple of my favorites.
- Bittersweet - Author Hannah Kaminsky's delightful blog full of vegan sweetness.
- Lone Star Plate - An excellent resource for Texas vegans covering restaurant and events.
- Posie Gets Cozy - A blog by the very crafty Alicia Paulsen.
- Red Hot Vegans - Like Lone Star Plate but Austin-centric.
I read a lot of other blogs, but those are a few real good ones :-)
