My new Sunday Breakfast Favorite

Usually, me and Den head over to Steak'n Shake for breakfast on Sunday
but yesterday, he decided to make a vegan verison of our favorite scrambled eggs with veggies that we always eat when we go over there. He went to Kroger and but the MorningStar Farms Sausage crumbles, some tofu, and olives then scrambled it all together. This was really tasty, especially with bagels.

Vegan Veggie Pizzas

Last night my husband made some delish vegan veggie pizzas. For pizza crust, we went to Walmart & found some wheat olive and rosemary foccaica rolls and used Newman's Marinara spaghetti sauce as a base. After that, Den piled it high with olives, mushrooms, and artichoke hearts. Yummy!

On Becoming Vegan

Hi, my name is Tamara and I've recently decided to become vegan. While I have enjoyed a life long love affair with dairy and eggs, I realize now that by eating these things, I am being a hypocritical vegetarian by avoiding meat but still eating products which hurts cows. I have went online and researched egg and dairy alternatives and I look forward to trying these new foods. I'm planning to start on Monday and am looking forward to feeling better about my relationship with the Earth and animals. I'm grateful that my husband is so understanding (which could be because he was raised vegetarian) but it's interesting how many items I'm finding that have egg or dairy ingedients in the ingredients.

I graduated!

It's been too long since I've last written so I'll keep it brief-I graduated with my Masters in Library Information Studies from the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. Yay Me!
