My Vegan Monday

Like many things in life this past year, going vegan on Mondays has become victim to my more lackadaisical side (after a lifetime of being ferociously Type A, who knew I even had a lackadaisical side?). Oh well. That’s what 5am wake-up calls and the commuting-working-mom lifestyle thing does.

All that is to say I had a cheese panini, turkey chili, and milk chocolate malt balls today. (But no red meat for over 15 years!)

Elsewhere in life, we’re cooking. Parker turns 1 (seriously!) on Thursday! It’s crazy. Crazier still, she has started walking. She has 7-8 teeth, a wicked appetite and endless curiosity.

Early autumn has been filled with activity and local travels. We were up in Maine for a family reunion that included ample eating, drinking, bocce, cliff walks and making music videos, and we head to Connecticut this weekend for a cousin’s wedding. Luckily, Parker is proving to be a champion traveler. The car knocks her right out and sometimes she even goes right down in her Pack and Play.

I cooked this past weekend: made ratatouille, pesto and chocolate chip cookies. We’ve also, along with the rest of the world, tried Blue Apron. Good for convenience; decent meals, but nothing has blown my mind yet.

We’ve been so lucky with weather, having Indian Summer right through September. I know we’re lucky but I still get bummed when I think of every day for the next six months being colder and darker than the previous.

Have been watching Chef’s Table on Netflix – fascinating characters and stories. I’m also reading Danny Meyer’s Setting the Table, after taking nearly four months to finish Rebecca Solnit’s scarily brilliant The Faraway Nearby.

Oh, I’ve even discovered some new music as of late: Jamie xx, King and Catfish and the Bottlemen.

So life is good. For Milo, it’s more of a mixed bag…


  1. Milo is eating it up. It is just the Cat Thing to act not that interested.

    I cannot believe that she is a year old this week ! You were pregnant longer than that ! lol
    Sending love .. this is the best time of year for weekend trips and cookouts and exploring ... then we all hunker down in our nests and wait out the winter.

  3. BROKEN MARRIAGE, my husband left me with two kids . I felt like my life was about to end and I almost committed suicide, I was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr Frank Ojo, which I meet online, On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet and I came across a lot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. I also come across one particular testimony and it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr Frank Ojo mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try and I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48 hours, my husband came back to me and we solved our issues, we are even happier than before Dr Frank Ojo is really a gifted man and I will not stop testifying him because he is a wonderful man and so powerful... If you have a problem and you are looking for solution to solve all your problems. Great Dr Frank Ojo can also offer any types of help like Reuniting of marriage and relationship, Curing of all types of Diseases, Court Cases, Pregnancy Spell, Spiritual protection and lot's more. You can contact him on his E-mail: , Web site:, He cast real spells that work?? contact him if you have any problem.

  8. Testimony By Wendy Owen, How I Get My Husband to Love Me Again!

    I was hurt and heart broken when a very big problem occurred in my marriage seven months ago, between me and my husband . so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce. he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the Email address of the spell caster whom he visited. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day. What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me, and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past 7 months, gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back. So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there if you have any problem contact Dr Frank Ojo, i give you 100% guarantee that he will help you.. Email him at: ,or visit his Web site to know more about him: ,and i lives in United Kingdom. Thank you sooooo much!!!
