I want to say that I'm getting back into the swing of things, but I'm just not. Honestly I could really use a Spring Break. Don't you miss those days, when everyone got a week off when the weather got nice, and just got to relax? Oh wait...I get one of those. And its this week. THANK GOD.
I don't think its going to be a very exciting week. I had plans of seeing friends and whatnot, until I realized that all of my friends are working. As it is, I have a lot of stuff to do...like my taxes and planning for the week we get back. Other than that, I'm going to do a lot of yoga and try to stabilize my diet.
Speaking of food, this week started with veggies.
Veggies are good and all, but what makes this is the nutritional yeast sauce. Its nice and cheesy and really really simple: 1 cup nutritional yeast, 2 cups soymilk, 1/4 cup spelt flour, 2 tbsp tamari, and as much cayenne as you like. You start by toasted the flour and nutritional yeast over low heat, then slowly add the soymilk, stirring until smooth and creamy.
I had it on top of some squash, and some sun dried tomatoes on top of that. Simple, fast, just the kind of thing I needed.

Anyway, yes, I'm alive. In fact, my birthday was on Monday, so I'm another year alive (25, if you were wondering). Thanks to those of you who have checked up on me.
A picture of me and Zoe as proof:
I apologize for being away for so long, and for my last post being so personal. I know none of you minded, but I still don't really want this blog to go in that direction, so I deleted that post. At the same time though, I really want to thank so many of you for the comments and words of encouragement, I really appreciated it.
I have been at my second placement for a little over a week now, and its going okay. I do love the kids already, but I'm not a fan of the material or the teacher I am working with. She's alright but we just don't click. It makes things a little boring.
Also, I should apologize for not even keeping up with your blogs. I feel badly about it, but to be honest, I haven't really been doing much of anything that I like lately. When I took the pot out to cook last night I couldn't even remember the last time I had used a pot (sad, right?). Hopefully this week will set things back on the right track.
