I'm on a mushrooms kick. I made individual mushroom Wellingtons for dinner last night, along with some fancy sides and dessert.

I did some fancy sides to go with it: lemony asparagus and fingerling potatoes.

I'm not calling it a resolution because that will pretty much guarantee that I'll rebel and not do it. But I got an idea from my uncle, who went vegan about a year ago and is feeling much healthier and more energetic. I'm going to try having one day a week be vegan day. I don't think I'll ever go 100% vegan, because I love eggs, cheese and ice cream and I'd hate not ever being able to eat them. But there are a lot of vegan foods I like and one day a week will be fine. So if you have some good vegan recipes, I'd love to hear them!

My ideas so far are oatmeal or cereal with almond milk for breakfast (it tastes so much better than soy milk and is better in coffee too), peanut butter & banana sandwiches, Tasty Bite, my vegetable stews, rice & beans (...I usually like that with a bit of cheese on top but it'll probably be fine without that), homemade pad see ew. I'm pretty sure a lot of the Morningstar things are vegan too. A vegan labmate eats the chick'n patties with salad, that sounds good. Hummus is OK but they serve it at lab functions all the time for the vegans and I get a bit bored with it. I'm sure they do too. It won't be that much of an adjustment, I have oatmeal or cereal most mornings.

Also I'll be taking a Zumba class two mornings a week and I want to work out choreography for my own class so I can try to get teaching jobs.

That doesn't count as a resolution, I signed up for it a while ago, it's just in Spring semester.
