First Attempt at homemade Beefless Beef

First Attempt at homemade Beefless Beef

Alright, so tonight I attempted to make homemade beefless beef. I love the Trader Joe’s brand of it, but I always seem to need it when I’m out. I keep TVP in the pantry at all times and most of the beefless beef have TVP as the main ingredient.

July 4th with my Brit!!

Well, my lovely Brit and I had an amazing July 4th. We spent the majority of it doing yard work! Hahahaha, we got an amazing mower! Battery powered, isn’t took loud, and still works great!! Look at it! We were able to get all the grass mowed and then replanted our honeysuckle and some Sweet Williams. Of course there was a Home Depot trip in the middle. Mark and I had some delicious homemade ham and swiss croissants this morning…

Avocado Mash for hair.

Coconut oil, avocado, and a wee bit of baking soda apparently make a good conditioner … Leave it on your hair/scalp for about 15 to 20 minutes. Well, I did this and I have to say…. It was weird…. Even after blended up everything as smooth as I could get it, there were still chunks of avocado I had to somehow was out of my hair in the end…. I don’t think I will do it again 🙁 Why? Well…

White teeth, birthdays, and delicious faces.

Well today has been a nice and lazy day. I went for a run today, then went to the gym :), ran some errands, sat outside and read for a bit, then came home and cleaned. I liked working out in my new pink shorts 🙂 I hate the color pink; however, I decided to get them for my birthday. Here is me rocking them in the dressing room with my best friend Steena.   I don’t make it a…
