WEDNESDAY: muffin pizzas and dreams

English Muffin Pizzas
A variety of veges + melted vegan cheese and a sprinkle of nooch ♥

I've never used a muffin as a pizza base before, WHY HAVE I NOT!? I don't know, but this is going to be a regular snack for me from now on.

So satisfying, but then I got that feeling of being full and sleepy.
So I went and had a nap.

Whenever I nap during the day I have the craziest dreams! I know, back to the dreams again.
But seriously, today it was about rats living in my walls and invading my room.  Photobucket
Then I always wake up feeling a bit crappy and even more tired.
And more so today because I just sat around home all day, which I don't usually do.

So I went for a run and a workout at the gym and felt A-MAZING for the rest of the day.
Speaking of dreams though, I get this all the time. 
I will wakeup in the morning, then fall back to sleep and dream about getting up and making breakfast.
Then when I really wake up I'm not really sure whats going on.
Anyone else ever have this happen? no? just me? okay...

WEDNESDAY: chai tea and avocado

So I havent been able to post in the last few days because my SD card got stuck in the computer!!
Trust this to happen to me.

So after I went grocery shopping this morning I ran into Kmart, picked a new one up, and first this I did when I walked in the door was cut open the packet, stick it in my camera and take this photo to check all was okay. Photobucket

Not having a camera for even just a few days sucked! Last night for dinner I made Hottie Black Eyed Peas & Greens from Appetite for Reduction, and I was sad I couldn't take a photo of it.

So on a whim the other night I decided to change up my room a bit, move my bed, change my posters, and I've been having strange dreams ever since.
I love it.

buckwheat crispbread + avocado + almond dukkah

This is my about 20 minutes ago sipping on a chai tea latte with vanilla soy, which I brewed the traditional way on the stove top for 3 hours.
So worth it. It made my house smell amazing.
I always buy my tea from T2, because I really do think they make the best tea. ♥

Baked Sweet Potato 'Fries'
{spiced with garlic, curry powder, paprika, thyme and cumin and sprinkled with a almond & cumin dukkah}
They were a bit mushy to be proper fries, but still so delicious, especially with some Toffuti smeared on top.

Bakery Goods
Baked goods from 2in1 Japanese Bakery. I just like to walk past and look at all the interesting looking foods.

Yesterday for dinner I had Baked Falafel from Isa Chandras book Appetite for Reduction
bad photos, sorry

They turned out really well. And until 2 day ago, I had never tried tahini, the girl working at Mrs. Flannery's encouraged me to buy some.
Now I will never go without again! I'm in love. 
I whipped up a lemon tahini dressing to go with the falafels and I think I've now found a new favourite meal.

WEDNESDAY: family, shopping and monster burgers

Today my brother has come to visit me.Photobucket
I decided to take him into the city for the day.

Bombay Bliss
We went to Grill'd for lunch and I decided to try the 'Bombay Bliss' burger. {a chickpea pattie with roasted peppers, tzatziki, salad and relish}
To 'veganise' it I went without the tzatziki and added some avocado. Photobucket 
Oh god, the burger was SO GOOD!!! The patty was spiced with curry flavours, and it was just so delicious!!

I found the cutest teapot ever, but didn't buy it because it was a bit pricey. To drink tea from a strawberry would make me so happy Photobucket 

I also bought some sneakers, reduced from $60 to $20, a new boater hat, since my last one blew off my head while I was riding on the city ferry and got a cute icecream bag for cheap which I thought was pretty cute.

And after my long day of walking around, I passed out amoungst my shopping.


Tonight's dinner. I tried the Sour Cream & Onion Cheezly cheese on my pizza tonight.
It didnt melt as well as the mozarella, and didnt taste as flavoursome as thought it would. But it was still pretty nice.

{pita bread : fresh & semi dried tomato : asparagus : mushroom : black & green olives : red and brown onion : garlic : shallots : capers}
Its time for much needed sleep now.

SATURDAY: hot chocolates and snacking

Currently sitting at my desk by candlelight with a duckie mug of warm hot chocolate. What could be better right now.
{100% cocoa powder, splenda, vanilla essence & almond milk}

This morning I ~
♥ Made pumpkin oatmeal for the first time - wow!
♥ Went to the Rocklea Farmers markets, picked up some fresh veges. One of them being kale and I can't wait to make a fresh batch of kale chips.
I use to wonder if kale chips were overrated, but after trying them myself I have to say that they defiantly lived up to the hype.
♥ Made a visit to the library
♥ Came home to some avocado on corn thins for morning tea.
There is nothing more delicious then avocado with salt and pepper, so simple, but so yummy.

After all of this I realised it was not even 12 o'clock yet.
I left for the gym, did a small workout and spent the rest of the cold day curled up in my bedroom with magazines and youtube. Photobucket
After gym snack

THURSDAY: sushi love!

Going back home to the coast for the night on Tuesday not only meant pimping my brothers BMX to go on a bike ride to the duck pond with my dad, but it also meant raiding the local second hand shops.
Lately I've been so lucky with my finds, here were the best.
Cane suitcase
Cups ♡
Bunny Cup
Mother Duck
I was SO excited when I found this plate. I have been wanting something like it for so long.

I recieved some new Hello Kitty shirts in the mail. I bought two, the cut is strange, I think its called 'bat wing' style.
For those who don't know, bananas in Australia are VERY expensive. Going on $13.00+ a KG, this is due to a recent hurricane. So sadly, being the kind of person who loved to eat bananas everyday, I've had to cut down.
But I decided to treat myself and buy some yesterday.

After being so banana deprived I made myself some chocolate banana oatmeal this morning.
{oats: soy: banana: cocoa powder: vanilla essence: chopped dark chocolate: cinnamon: almonds: topped with peanut butter ♡}
This mornings breakfast got me in the mood to cook all day.
I had some shiitake mushrooms, wakame salad and inari in fridge, which mean I had no excuse but to make sushi for lunch.
Sushi Ingrediants

{sushi filling; avocado: bean curd: shiitake mushrooms: carrot & inari wakame boats}
Then after making a red lentil dahl for dinner I'm all cooked out now and ready for bed.

Today I took a trip to visit the only vegan shop (that I know of) in Brisbane; The Green Edge. I picked up some more Cheezly cheese, I always get the mozzarella style but the girl who works there recommended the Sour Cream & Chives flavour, so I got both. 
The Green Edge are also doing vegan educational cooking classes each Saturday as well, I plan on attending the TVP & other meat alternatives class.

Strawberry coconut overnight oats are in the fridge waiting for me tomorrow morning. Photobucket
