Identity CrisisPosted: October 4, 2010
Good evening! I hope you’re having a great start to a week, as well as to your October!
Now that it’s been officially fall for a bit, I’m glad to see that the trees are finally starting to catch up to the season!
Even though the trees are looking like fall, the weather is still summer all the way…
Dear Florida: It’s fall. Chill your spazzy ass down. I have lots of football games I plan to attend and lots of runs I’m going to complete, and your cooperation with operation Don’t Die of Heat Stroke would be much appreciated. The cashmere sweaters waiting patiently in my closet would also like to see the light of day sometime in the near future. Grazi.
As Florida decides whether it’s July or October, there’s another little identity crisis occurring in my kitchen.
It looks and smells like jerky, it has the texture and rich, smoky flavor of an incredibly tender cut of meat…yet, it’s vegan! I feel it should be a crappy gas station item, but at only 99 calories and entirely respectable ingredients, it’s very possibly my new favorite snack! These delicious strips are far healthier than they have any right to be! I snagged quite a few of them for $1.50 each at Chamberlin’s Natural Foods Store, thanks to a co-worker’s recommendation!
Are you excited for the cooler weather of fall or are you clinging desperately to the last shreds of summer?
