the day i almost didn't vote + giveaway winner announced

2 Nov


What an exciting day with elections and all!  I feel terrible to say this, but I almost forgot to vote.

Well, maybe I didn’t almost forget to vote.  I just almost didn’t vote.  But then I started to feel really guilty and like a terrible citizen who isn’t taking advantage of her right to have a voice.  So, the husband and I hightailed it to our voting center and basically shut the place down. Next election I definitely want to do more research and have a better idea of who I want to vote for in each area…and why.

Another exciting thing about today was making and inhaling the single best snack known to man.

Homemade bread. Almond butter. Pumpkin butter.

Heaven on a plate.

Moving on.

After a full afternoon of working on the biz, I was all geared up for a fun dinner.  I’ve had a recipe waiting in the wings for several days now and finally decided to make it tonight.  It’s a multi-step process, and I got through step #2 before I had to abandon ship kitchen and head to the polls!

By the time we finished reading and over-analyzing 99 hundred state questions, we were both starving and made the last minute decision to ditch my marinating meal and grab a pizza instead.  Isn’t that terrible? haha! I’m a fan of spontaneity.

And pizza 🙂

The mystery mixture should be good and ready by tomorrow night, and I shall reveal it to you then!  It’s a spin off an Eat Drink and Be Vegan recipe, so it’s sure to be a winner.

Okay, I must cut this short and get to bed asap.  I’ve been getting less than 6 hours a night lately, and it’s not making for a nice Candice.  Sleep is important!

But first, I shall announce the winner of the CSN $40 gift-card giveaway!  Thank you all so much for entering!  I loved hearing all of your favorite foods – so fun!

And the winner is…

    Any variation of PBJ (or AB + pump butter) is a good one!

    I have that cookbook, so I’m curious to see what you made from there!

    Favorite snack: Banana w/PB, dates w/PB, oatmeal w/fruit, apple/PB. Hmm I guess almost all of my snacks involve PB!

      Amen to pb, right?!

      I love Eat Drink and Be Vegan – I’ve used it more than any other cookbook I’ve ever had!

    we don’t even “go to the polls” here… we have mail in and drop off ballots… I kinda miss the process of voting, although this IS easier. 😀

    glad you voted !! AND had pizza… I’m looking forward to seeing your mystery recipe!
