lately...

i haven't been posting very frequently.

but! today i am finally back home and will probably have a bit more free time. not to mention the bonus of my dad's garden at my disposal. what more could a girl ask for?!

seriously though, as i was eating some of the asparagus from my dad's garden tonight, i thought about how much going vegan has changed my perspective of food [2 years this june!]. i am so enthralled with the color and smell and taste of an item. and i am always thinking about the possibility of what items i can mix and create and eat together. it's incredibly different from the thoughtless gorging on disgusting food that i used to do way back when i was a wee little girl. i just needed to throw that in there...

on to the food!

i got these rice&&bean combos to try--the pictures are of the red beans, but the package is from the black. i like the red beans better. they had a different [&&better flavor]. i hope i can find these at the store again b/c they are really great for a quick meal.

this asparagus was from the farmer's market and it was delicious! i would proclaim my love for liquid smoke once more, but i think you've gotten enough of that in the past. so, i used liquid smoke, lots&&lots of garlic, garlic powder, and onion powder, and a dash of olive oil. then, steamed them in the microwave anddddd YUM.

the last evening i was in town, i didn't want to make anything i'd have leftovers with, so i just ate one of those microwavable frozen bags of corn. it was sweet and delicious.

Asparagus is by far my favorite veg.
