Four On Friday

How is it Friday already? I don't know but I'll take it! Here's what I've been...

1)Admiring...this cute fairy house in the library garden (made out of a tree stump!).
2) Fan-girling over....Hubs and Daughter got to meet Henry Winkler at Wizard World(a local comic-con).  I love him as Barry Zuckerkorn in Arrested Development and we've been watching him and his co-horts in Better Late Than Never.
3)Enjoying... my only clematis bloom, but isn't she a beaut?
4)Getting used to...my new hair cut! I love the shorter length and new high/low lights but everything looks even better with a cute Snapchat filter!
Have a lovely Memorial Day weekend! We're off on a little road trip--follow on me on Instagram to see where we go!Pin It

{Recipe} Soy Curl Fajitas

I was excited to find some Butler Soy Curls at the Pop Up Vegan Flea Market but I wasn't sure what to make with them.
 Soy curls are a meat alternative made from non-GMO soybeans.   Most of the recipes I found used them as a chicken replacement so I decided to make "Chicken" Fajitas.
 This is what they look like right out of the bag (in their dried form).
 They have to be hydrated in hot water for about 10 minutes before use.( I used half of the bag of soy curls.) Now they really look like chicken strips!
 After I drained the soy curls, I added them to a pan with 2 sliced bell peppers and half of an onion.  I cooked them on medium high, adding some No-Chicken Veggie broth to cook them and keep them from sticking to the pan. I also added poultry seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, dash of chili powder & liquid aminos.
 To serve: I warmed up some corn tortillas and added some Chao cheese, scallions and a squeeze of fresh lime.
The second batch got some red cabbage too. Delish!

Açai Bowls at Costco

I had just read an article about the amazing açai bowls that Costco was serving at their snack bars and was in total shock. What? How? I did a quick search for which Costcos had the bowls and found out that they were only on the West Coast. whomp whomp.

We happened to be headed to Costco a few days later and I was telling Mr. Click about the mythical açai bowls that our Costco would probably never get.
 Well wouldn't you know as we were checking out I saw THIS!  There they were! Cue the angels! I sprinted got out of line to go check it out and of course I had to order one.
 The bowl is generously sized and comes covered in fresh (not frozen) fruit and granola.  It comes in at 330 calories which isn't too bad.  What do you think? Are you as excited as I am about the açai bowls at Costco?

{Shopping} Even More Trader Joe's Finds!

I know that I love seeing what other people find and buy at their Trader Joe's so I'm sharing a few more of my finds and favorites.
 Their tea selection is pretty good and tends to change with the seasons. I can usually always find Earl Grey but the Spiced Chai isn't always there.  Their Mango Black  tea is another favorite of ours.
 Bagels! The artisan kettle boiled bagels taste like they just came out of a bagel shop.
I needed a new serum because my last bottle of TJ's serum fell and broke all over the sink. :(   The Antioxidant Facial Serum another product in their Nourish line.
You know I love their baking products and here's another favorite. The organic coconut sugar is great in baked goods (and my Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal too).
Have you found any good TJ's finds lately?Pin It
