Let’s be real, guys. After Mondays, Tuesdays are the worrrrst. After a particular rough patch of Tuesdays this time last year, I decided that I would henceforth declare TREAT YOSELF TUESDAY. On TREAT YOSELF TUESDAY, whether I have a crummy day or not, I treat myself to at least one awesome thing. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a food thing, but I am a HUGE advocate of emotional eating in that food makes me the happiest.
Today’s Tuesday was full of treats including:
1) Pumpkin Chip Muffins for Breakfast
Last night after an equally lame Monday, I decided to bake myself some pumpkin spiced muffins full of chocolate chips and toasted pumpkin seeds! Recipe to come later for one of my MoFo posts. Anyways, I ate one for my 6:45 am breakfast with a cup of blueberry tea my madre brought me home from Newfoundland!
2) Handmade Vegan Fragrances
I actually treated myself to these last week on Etsy from LongWinterSoapCo, but they totally arrived in the mail today just in time for TREAT YOSELF TUESDAY. One is very suitably Pumpkin Chip flavoured and I want to eat it, and one is very romantically floral and called White Porch.
3) Vegan Butter Chickpeas
I stumbled across some spice packages at Planet Organic for “butter chicken” and “pho” and decided to pick them up. I threw together a quick dish of sauteed onion and garlic, chickpeas, potatoes, and carrots combined with the spice paste, and coconut milk! I also nommed on some green beans. This meal was accompanied by watching The Hangover II on Netflix which is dumb but I have never seen and wanted to watch something mindless.
Next is an early bedtime and listening to pretty music. How is everybody else’s Tuesday?!?!
