beige plate of yum

19 Nov

This picture is terrible, but it sure hit the spot. It was my lunch today, courtesty of Whole Foods deli. Some sweet potato cakes (made with sweet potatoes, quinoa, brown rice, onions, cranberries and herbs), veggie stuffing and cranberry sauce. Seriously, salty stuffing and cranberry sauce are the only things I need to be happy at Thanksgiving. Keep the pumpkin pie and pass me the casserole dish. kthxbai

For my random drawing of the week, I picked the sneak peek post of cake pictures and the lucky commentor was #10- Jodye! Jodye, I’m going to send you an awesome set of mesh, reusable produce bags for you to fill with deliciousness!

And, as an aside, I’ll put the “news” I was alluding to earlier in the week here. This affects nothing in regards to my blog, except perhaps a serious lack of decent posts for a couple of weeks, but Jim and I are leaving Portland. We’re not going far, we’re moving down to Eugene. When a job opportunity knocks, sometimes you gotta go with it. I’ll miss PDX, but it’s only a 2 hour ride away. Besides, this puts us in the land of YUMM!

    You’re leaving Portland! Oh well, that’ll give me a reason to go and visit Eugene next time I’m in Oregon. Best wishes for a smooth and easy move. 🙂

    Hoo boy, I am in the midst of moving now too so I empathize. Both blogging and eating well are sort of forgotten. Best wishes!

    Those sweet potato cakes look very tasty! My Whole Foods deli never seems to have more than one or two vegan options, and they’re never very good. When I was in Memphis, though, they had tons of vegan deli awesomeness, which surprised me in the land of BBQ.

    The sweet potato cakes sound great. 🙂

    Good luck with your move – I move everything goes smoothly!

    I, too, am content with stuffing and cranberry sauce…although, a slice of pumpkin pie doesn’t hurt 🙂 I’m actually going to see if I can veganize my grandmother’s stuffing recipe tonight – yum!
    Happy moving and congrats on the new job!!!

    Where did you get the reusable produce bags? I could only find them available by the case, which is a few more than I was looking for! thanks!
