Becoming Vegetarian

A little over three weeks ago, I started eating a vegetarian diet. It seems a little weird to think that I have not had meat of any kind in over three weeks. I haven't missed it. I've been having so much fun cooking veggie dishes from my new vegetarian cookbook and my Indian cookbook.

Today was Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies. I've been craving PB cookies for a week or so. I was going to use a regular old recipe that I had but alas, once I got around to making the cookies, no butter. I googled and found a tasty recipe at 101 Cookbooks. I recommend it.

I'm a Tropicana Juicy Rewards Insider!

Because I'm a Savvy Auntie ( I entered to become a Tropicana OJ Juicy Rewards Insider - and was selected!! One of 21 people.

I get 12 points toward the Juicy Rewards program (along with the ones that come along with the code underneath the cap of my Tropicana OJ in the fridge) to be redeeming for discounts off tons of crazy stuff. AND I get $50 to use towards trying out those things. Like a massage from Massage Envy. Um, yes please!

All I have to do is Twitter and blog about my experience with the program. No problem there.

I just need to sing the praises of Groupon....

I recently bought a Groupon ($25 for $50 at Amerigos). Last night I and three of my girlfriends had dinner, shared a dessert and left a 30% percent tip to our server, and only paid $14 a piece!

Groupon: it's what's for dinner.

Nieces & Nephews

I have the best nephews and nieces. Don't even try to fight me on it.

No More Barista

I also realized that I'm no longer a barista and I haven't been since last Spring. I took it out of the title, though for old time's sake it still appears in the URL.

Once a barista, always a barista, maybe? Which could also mean, barista = career that you can always fall back on.

I don't feel so bad.....

I just went through my blog roll to the left and half of my friends haven't update their blog in a year either. In fact, some of them no longer existed. That's it....this page is getting an overhaul right now.

p.s. Is it too late to add this to my New Year's Resolution?

My Poor Blog

Dear Blog,

I have neglected you. And I apologize.

Twitter has become my micro-blog in some ways.

But you are not forgotten.
