A Fine Spring Day

Yesterday was one of those sunshiney Spring days that feels like a warm hug.  Good days like this usually start with a trip through the King Harvest drive-up for coffee and a vegan tahini oat cookie first thing in the morning.  It's (sort of, usually) on my way, and I can't not stop. This place is friendly and adorable with plenty of vegan options and good coffee.  They have cute hand-drawn signs.  I love that sort of thing.
THE cookie.  Tahini, oats, flax seed, golden raisins.  This + Americano = awesome morning treat.
Followed by a walk through the park in my backyard. Pretty.
Then a snack:
That's not salsa! It's roasted red pepper and artichoke tapenade with daiya mozzarella style shreds.  Tasty.
The afternoon was cat naps with Pixins, and a last minute stop by the Whole Foods salad bar for dinner (edamame + curry quinoa!), then cuddling up to watch back to back episodes of True Blood season 3 before the next season starts.

And in true Portland fashion today was rainy and perfect for another trip up North to my new favorite vegan place in Portland.  In the name of research for a (near) future blog post, of course :)


  1. Oooh those chips look so tasty! Makes me want to go make some. I just bought a bag of Daiya cheese today!

  2. Beautiful pics and yummy eats! I think I need a cat nap.. Err, dog/baby nap? ;)

  3. P.s. Suuuuuuper excited for True Blood next Sunday!!

  5. Kelly - I heart Daiya so much. Probably too much :)

    Lauren - TRUE BLOOOOOOOD!!!! So excited for season 4!

    kelli - Thanks, they're Minnetonkas and I love them. I'm hoping to find a vegan version to replace them with when they wear out. I really love moccasins.
