We had a fun dinner of veggies tonight. I bought some nice big artichokes on sale at the farmer's market last weekend. I don't totally love artichokes, but it's fun a couple of times a year. Most of the nation's artichokes are grown around here, so they are also a neat local crop. Musty also got a big bag of brussel sprouts from our tax guy today (?? don't totally know how that worked! ), and so I made the *fabulous* roasted brussel sprouts with toasted garlic. This recipe single-handedly turned me from a brussel-sprout-pessimist into a brussel-sprout-fan! And, I also made the always delicious "Blitva s Krumpirom" (potatoes with chard). It was a very delicious meal!
Today I bought myself a cool new pair of shoes! These caught my eye a few days ago at our local "outdoorsy" store. I noticed that they looked neat and cozy, and were *leather free*!! Hoorah! They are BOGS brand, which I haven't heard of before. They're very comfortable. They are made of rubber, canvas, and neoprene. They have laces, but no "tongue"... actually there's an inner part that you just slip into (perfect for lazy me!). Plus, with all the rain we've been having lately, I can finally wear something besides my flip flops and my tennies with holes in them. :) here's to cozy feet!
My favorite piece of mail is when I open the mailbox and find the latest copy of "VegNews" - I LOVE that magazine! So, now I'm off to take a bath and do some veggie reading. I can't wait!
