It was a wonderful day outside. The dogs and I went on a 3 mile walk. They were really strutting their stuff. Tommy and I brought them along to have lunch out side at Panera. He ordered soup and sandwich, I brought my lunch. It was leftover Chickpea Salad with mixed greens and some peasant bread. Breakfast was a variation on the classic fruit and oatmeal. I made a Fig Oatmeal with Mint. It was just a hint of mint, I don't think that the flavor meshed well with the earthiness of the figs and steel cut oats.
We had two dishes with dinner. Tempeh Sloppy Joes on a carrot role and Pasta and Bean Salad with tomatoes and basil. These were great dishes. Onions, peppers and tempeh simmered in a tomato sauce flavored with cider vinegar, mustard and garlic powder. The pasta salad included cannelloni beans, onions, tomatoes, basil, and scallions in a balsamic vinaigrette.
I snacked during the day on pistachios and a slice of bread with peanut butter. I also froze some Miso Soup and Wild Rice Soup so that I would have something if couldn't cook for a day.
