Friday night we met our friend Louis for dinner at Jesse Wong’s in Hunt Valley, because my husband and I are both obsessed with the faux duck. How do they make it tear like poultry? I am definitely going to play around with this idea and see if I can make faux duck at home, just as soon as I have a little bit more time.
We had our usual miso soup, veggie sushi and Hunan faux duck. It was great, as always
Louis got shitake mushrooms and green beans, which has become his usual. Isn’t it nice of him to get a vegetarian entrée when having dinner with us? So thoughtful.
After dinner we stopped as Wegman’s since we were right there. While we were there we bought hemp protein powder for our smoothies. We also bought a small mountain of fresh produce, light coconut milk and tofu. All the essentials.
While at Wegman’s we were looking at the raw granola but it had so many sugar grams we didn’t buy it. So when we got home we ordered some raw buckwheat from Amazon. This led to also buying raw black sunflower seeds, and a wheat grass kit. For those of you that know me well the wheat grass is a big step for me. I have been trying to add more raw food to our diet but wheat grass is not one of my favorite flavors. However I keep reading how good it is for us so I have decided to dive in (head first so I hope the water is deep). We will see how this goes. (fingers crossed).
Saturday was very low keyed but ended with a funny movie that most of you have probably seen. The hubby and I tend to pick up movies and then never take them out of the cellophane. His little brother refers to this as our collectible movie collection. It really is ridiculous that we do that, but it is just something that seems to happen. I was laughing out loud at parts of the movie so I wanted to share. This movie is probably funnier for those of us that are over 40. It is about an older man who only dates young women but falls for a woman his own age. If you haven’t seen Something’s Gotta Give you really should. The scene where they are in the theatre and staging her play had me laughing so hard tears were rolling down my cheeks. I have read many times that laughter is great medicine, and if that is true this movie is good for your health.
I need to get back into the kitchen now. The hubby and I decided to have Seitan Cacciatore tonight for dinner and I am out of seitan in the freezer so I need to make that first. I will be back later with the Cacciatore recipe. I hope you are all having a wonderful day.
