Friday Fun! (Thanksgiving, Cooking)

Hello my lovely readers!  I hope those of you who celebrate had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I had a great time with my dad.  We ordered in Thai food, which he’d never had before.  (I believe it was a hit).  I showed him one of my favorite indie bookstores.  He took me grocery shopping! (Which has been wonderful for me, I can tell you).  We spoiled my kitty rotten and went to a couple of my favorite pubs.  It was a wonderful weekend, and I hope to get to see him again very soon!

This week I got to see my friend Nina for the first time in around a month.  We went for a super long walk together in the random Indian summer weather we had at the beginning of the week and made this stir-fry out of baby bok choy, onions, pepper, garlic, parsnips, carrots, and fake steak tips (they were soy).  Oh, and sesame seeds!

Those of you book bloggers who are looking for projects and/or challenges for 2012, please be sure to check out my Diet for a New America page and my Mental Illness Advocacy 2012 page.  Even if you don’t choose to participate in them, any mentions on your blogs, facebook, and twitter are most welcome!  These types of things are always more fun the more people participate!

Also, if you missed it, I have an international giveaway currently running thanks to the author.  Be sure to check that out too!

This weekend I’ll be training in the gym, going to a tree trimming party, and editing zombies.  Also hopefully cooking something up in the slow-cooker to freeze into single servings for lunches.  Busy busy!

Happy weekends all!

    Mmmm, bok choy. Love it. Do you use a specific vegetarian slow cooker cookbook or do you just wing it? I just got a slow cooker and would love some recipe/cookbook ideas! So far I’ve just used it to cook dry chickpeas.

      Yes I do! I absolutely love Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker. In addition to meals, it has appetizers, chutneys, and hot drinks! I’ve only ever made one recipe in it that I didn’t like, and I think that might just be that I don’t like French Onion soup……

      Hope that helps!

    Ooo all this talk of food is making me hungry! It all sounds wonderful, I’ve never tried bok choy though. I’m thinking about whipping up some home-made shortbread for Christmas.

      Mmm, shortbread!
      Bok choy is traditionally found in Chinese food, maybe you can find it that way?
