Don’t you think the world would be a happier place if every weekend was a 4-day weekend? I’ll even venture to say that it would be a happier place if every weekend was a 4-day weekend. Now it’s coming to an end, but having 4 days off, especially since I just stayed home was a good way to recharge. Now if only it could be 5-day weekend.
Friday was spent eating pie:
Jason was not a fan of the crustless pie concept, so he took it upon himself to build a crust under his with graham crackers. Ha.
And also going to the gym and doing some potential living room furniture buying. Although we didn’t end up buying anything. We got hungry, instead, and went to Lee’s Bakery, which is a Vietnamese place that has, in additional to the regular kind, vegan pho.
On Friday night, we went to this bar that’s near our house for trivia. We were kind of excited when we realized that there were only three teams playing because it gave us a better chance to win. Excited until, after three questions, the manager of the bar got on the microphone and cancelled the trivia because there were only three teams. Fail.
Saturday included more gymming and then a nap and grocery shopping. Jason really wanted to watch the USC vs Clemson game. At first we thought about going somewhere to watch it, but didn’t exactly know where and I wasn’t thrilled about going out to eat again, so ultimately we decided to just watch in our living room. I promised to make healthy, or somewhat healthy, game day food and decided on a 7-layer dip.
Healthier Vegetarian 7-Layer Dip
1 can refried beans
12 ounces soy crumbles (we used Morningstar farms)
1/2 cup salsa (divided)
3 small tomatoes, diced
2 avocados, diced
1 container of plain Greek Yogurt (we used Chobani 2%)
1/2 cup low-fat Mexican cheese
1 TBSP taco seasoning
1. Heat the soy crumbles up in a pan. When they are heated, add taco seasoning and 1/4 cup salsa.
2. Mix the remaining salsa with the yogurt.
3. Spread the refried beans on the bottom of a large baking dish.
4. Layer the soy crumbles on top, then the yogurt/salsa mixture, lettuce, tomatoes, avocados and finally the cheese.
5. Serve with chips.
