Thank you all so much for the sweet responses to my post from Monday. I couldn’t have asked for more encouragement and understanding than what you all showed me. It was a difficult post to write, but once I put it out there I felt immense relief. It felt really good to be open about everything, and your words brightened my spirit.
On Monday afternoon I had another doctor’s appointment, and the news was not what I wanted to hear. For certain reasons, my doctor feels it’s best to hold off from doing another treatment this month and instead give my body a month to rest. It’s hard to feel like I’m just sitting back, making no progress. But I trust my doctor one hundred percent, so I’m trying to just distract myself and not dwell on it. One thing I’ve learned more times than I would have liked is that it is not a good idea to put timelines on this process. I get ideas in my head about when I want things to happen by, and so far I’ve been let down every time. I’m working on letting go of any plan I have and just focusing on other things in life instead. Easier said than done, right?
In other news, I’ve been trying out some awesome vegan recipes as of late. My new kitchen was calling my name from the second we moved in, and I have seriously been in heaven since I started cooking again!
One of my favorites from the last couple of weeks is one I snagged from Vegan with a Vengeance. I’m telling you – if you don’t have this cookbook yet, you must pick up a copy. Everything single recipe I have made from it has been awesome (see here, here and here)…and this was no different.
The husband and I woke up late last Saturday morning…okay, he woke up late, and I woke up even later. And when I dragged myself into the kitchen, he had all the ingredients laid out for a lovely little breakfast of pumpkin waffles. After some intense discussion, we decided to nix the waffles and try out this scone recipe from VwaV.
He made chocolate chip.
And I went with blueberry (his were better).
But they were both delicious. I think I ate about 4 scones in the following 12 hours.
A lovely Saturday indeed:)
I hope you all have had a great week, and are looking forward to an even better weekend.
What is your favorite cookbook – vegan or non-vegan?
Mine is a tie between VwaV and Eat Drink and Be Vegan. Couldn’t live without those two!
