chickpea, cauliflower + Old Bay veggie burgers w/ vegan cashew lemon mayo My little neighbourhood is small and chatty. I was pulling out dandelions in my front yard when an older man that lives a few houses down came right over in his bare feet and joked that I was wasting my time before he introduced himself. It is pretty hard to keep up with those little suckers, but! John reminded me that they are edible, because he’s seen some of the “little old Italian ladies” cooking them up with garlic and whatnot. So I finished up the little weeding session and poured myself an ice cold glass of water with a squeeze of lime, perched at my living room window for a minute. I think makin’ it better is almost always contagious if approached with warmth and casual grace. It’s those shiny bits of the everyday that make some of the more elusive, heavy-with-life things seem within reach. So as usual, plant-heavy meal preparation is the small focus strategy that reigns supreme. assembly etc.! Set a large pot with an inch or two of water over medium heat. You might also like…

LENTIL "MEATBALLS" IN LEMON PESTO I cleaned up all the holiday remnants on Monday. I made piles of what needs to be returned, boxed up the decorations, and dumped our brittle wreath and miniature tree. No offense to you Christmas cheerleaders, but it all becomes a bit much for me - the lists, the toffee, the spending and the formalities. It honestly was a wonderful day, but I think this year, more than ever, we saw most clearly what we wanted from the celebration, or rather what we wanted to contribute to it, and I think next year will look different. My haste to clean up is a personality trait (a vice sometimes). I really love writing letters. The recipe below is one from her site that I've tweaked around a bit for my taste. There will be celebrating with close friends this weekend and hopefully another date to discuss resolutions with my beloved. May the new year exceed your expectations and challenge you.

Basil, Garlic, + Tomato Veggie Burgers Remember how I was just gushing about my love for cycling? Well, yesterday I fell off my bike. And when you fall off a bike with clipless pedals the bike goes right along with you. Meaning, it falls on top of you. Before I could unlatch my foot from the pedal I somehow rode off the sidewalk, got caught at the edge, and then fell flat over on the sidewalk. This doesn't dampen my love for cycling, I just found the timing to be funny. Of course there was a witness to the scene about 10 steps in front of me. My leg + arm are a little scuffed but nothing too bad at all. Now let's talk about these burgers. And this cheese. There is a time and place for cheese and this is definitely it. Gooey, melty, stretchy cheese. I'm kind of on a temporary hiatus from my go-to Mexican style flavors. This mix of flavors is exactly what I was looking for. There's the fresh, summery scent from the basil and a kick of robustness from the garlic and sun-dried tomatoes. Served up open-faced style. Print this! Ashley
