Lunch + More Water Babies + COOKBOOK GIVEAWAY!!!

May 17, 2010

Hey guys!  Hope you’ve had a good morning!  Ryan and I did No More Trouble Zones this morning….UGHHH.  I was hurting, for sure! I hadn’t done it for at least two or three weeks, and my legs and arms were QUIVERING.  Oh well…serves me right for skipping it for so long.  🙂

After running some errands, we ate some lunch at home:

blog 051

blog 053

Tortilla topped with hummus and veggies, + carrots sticks (Kashi cookie unpictured ;-)).

And then…Katherine and Sophie tried the pool again!  This time, it was more successful—I think she liked it!

She was pretty nervous on her way to the pool:

blog 059

blog 060

But she quickly warmed up to the idea!

blog 064

blog 065

blog 070 

She’ll be on a swim team before we know it!

*       *       *

Switching gears a bit…this week is the week of anniversaries!  It’s my first wedding anniversary, which is very exciting.

But it’s also…my six month anniversary of going vegetarian!! Not a single bite of meat since November 15th!

In honor of this anniversary, I’ve decided to have a giveaway to celebrate!

One of my all-time favorite cookbooks is Veganomicon, by Isa Chandraw Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero.  Even before I went vegetarian, I loved making recipes from this cookbook…and I’d love to share it with you!

To enter for a chance to win a copy of this cookbook, simply leave a comment on this post! I’ll pick a winner on Wednesday, May 19th.  Good luck!

Have a great day!

    Congratulations on the anniversaries, Anna! I have heard amazing things about Veganomicon (I really enjoy Vegan with a Vengeance).

    Oh. MY!! I would do anything to win that book! I’ve had lots of people say it’s amazing, and Vegan with a Vengeance is incredible (same authors I think?) 😀
    Love those b + w pics of the baby – beautiful!

    Congratulations on the anniversaries! The pictures of Kathrine and Sophie are gorgeous. I love the faces that little kids make. So cute. I’ve heard of Veganomicon and have long coveted it. Obviously, I hope I win (haha) because it’s a great cookbook and I’d like to have more than three to choose from, but regardless it’s an excellent little prize for anyone. Nice choice. 😉 I have Isa’s Vegan Brunch and it’s super amazing. The pumpkin pancakes I made from that book this morning were heavenly. If you don’t own it, I recommend it as well.
