We explored a new trail today. It is actually in a small park off of the lake trails that we normally run but we usually just pass by saying, "Oh, thats just Nixon park". Well today we ran a couple of those trails and it was a pleasant surprise indeed! Not only were they beautiful trails but they were hilly too. Just like the rest of the trails in that area.
Here is a picture of a wooden bridge and walkway that we went over...
Rik has been veg now for about 6 months and while he doesnt really say that he misses any meats...I know how much he used to like his hot wings. Him and the boys would occasionally by a bucketful and eat them up together. Hot sauce all over their face and hands. It was kind of a special thing for them.
I've read that its not really the meat that one misses but more so the tastes of the spices and related experiences that go along with it. Sooo...I saw the recipe for the vegan buffalo "wings" made with hot sauce and either tempeh or cauliflower and knew instantly that I wanted to make some for him! We love both tempeh and cauliflower so I decided to make both!
We actually ended up making two batches. The first one was with a hot sauce that we picked up and it was WAY to hot. You know its hot if Rik cant eat it, lol. He ran up to the store for a more mild sauce while I got the batter ready. The second batch was thankfully MUCH better! I really like tempeh but would have to say that the cauliflower tasted better here.

I did want to mention that today is the first day of VeganMoFo (Vegan Month of Food)!! I will be participating for the first time this year and am excited to be a part of it. My goal is to post 20 times this month which may be a stretch since I have only done 11 entries in each of the past two months since I've changed this blog from just running to food and running. Wish me luck!!!
