Weekend of Work

I was downloading photos from my camera when I realized I had one on there that didn’t make its way to the blog yet. I made the one of VeganDad’s most popular recipes – seitan hot wings! I shaped my seitan into giant nuggets and stuck it on the skewers, instead of making them leaner like the original photo. I would not make the hot sauce again, instead opting for my favorite tangy BBQ sauce by Organicville.


I knew I had to work most of the weekend, so I prepared some dinner in the Crock-Pot. I've worked 14 hours this weekend, meaning I'm at a 55 hour work week. Yuck. Anyways, this was the first time I’ve used the Crock-Pot since buying it in December, so I was a little concerned it wouldn’t work or would cause a fire. Yeah, paranoid, but you never know with electrical things. I have been eyeing the potato and pea curry in The Vegetarian Slow Cooker since I bought the book because it is the cover photo. However, I added some coconut curry pre-marinated tempeh for protein. The tempeh was pre-marinated by Turtle Island Foods. I’m trying these pre-marinated tempehs to see if I like any of them. So far, I am not overly impressed with any of them. Tempeh is a bit bitter, so I can still detect the hint of bitterness in these pre-marinated tempehs.


Jess and I have been working out in the mornings at 6:30 AM! I'm slowly adjusting to the morning routine, but I'm still trying to figure out the right weights to use. Since I took a hiatus for the holiday season, I was unsure if I would have lost a lot of strength. Apparently not! :) Jess wants to track calorie intake this week, so I said I would give it a try. I'll be using MyPlate at I am guessing that I eat an average of 2000 to 2500 calories per day, so it will be interesting to see what my totals and averages are at the end of the week.
