Sick Day + Birthday Weekend
Baby Sage has an ear infection. Poor guy! I really wasn't feeling well last Friday and I almost took a sick day, but I'm glad I didn't because I needed (and wanted!) to take one today to be with my boy. He fell asleep as I was picking up his prescription, so I wrote this post while sitting in the coffee shop of the grocery store letting him sleep in his carseat.
On a happier note, I had a wonderful 28th birthday over the weekend. Because I was under the weather, we canceled the festivities and had a low-key day, just the three of us, and that was just what I needed. And of course there was lots of delicious vegan eats.
On my birthday I got a roasted veggie melt with the best marinated tofu I've ever had. And that cupcake...heaven. All from my favorite vegan cafe. I also cooked and baked up a storm over the long weekend: banana flax pancakes (recipe coming soon!), jerk sloppy joe (made with seitan), cheddary broccoli soup (used white miso for the first time), PB cupcakes, and a penne bake (with a macadamia nut ricotta and a cashew cream). Yeah, my refrigerator is full of vegan yums. Also, there was a few trips to Starbucks. Sage takes beautifully long naps in the car so my husband and I took the opportunity (or two) to go to the Starbucks drive-thru and then take the scenic route home so Sage could sleep.
Praying for a quick recovery for Sage. I have to say though, he is so happy for not feeling well. Totally impressive.
