Apparently you like me. . .
So, I popped onto my blog only to find that Bites of Happiness apparently finds me inspiring. See, that’s kind of cool, because I’m generally pretty much a jerk in real life, but on here I can let all of my niceness out pretty anonymously. . . So, here is how this is going to go:
First I want to thank eviliciouz, who nominated for the Inspiring Blog Award. She’s cool people, and her blog about becoming vegan is way more inspiring than mine.
Inspiring Blog Award
The rules for the “Inspiring Blog Award”:
* Thank the person who nominated you.
* Tell 7 things about you that will not come up in your blog entries.
* Pass this on to 15 other bloggers that you find inspiring.
I want to thank eviliciouz for the nomination. I just started The Vegan’s Husband, and, to be honest, I was only not-vegan for about a week, and maybe my first post, before I finished my transition.
Now, you will find out Seven things about me that probably I won’t mention in my future blog posts:
1. I am Catholic (which I might mention) but I take my faith extremely seriously.
2. I’m an extremely religious Democrat. This isn’t a political blog, so I don’t want to talk politics.
3. I’m 33 years old, but I work hard at being immature.
4. My favorite band all time is Pearl Jam.
5. I lost almost 100 lbs, but not from going vegan, from stopping drinking all the time, once I left college.
6. The blonde and I met in college, both as theatre majors.
7. I have Restless Leg Syndrome, which keeps me up about 1 night in 15. I hope going vegan helps, but I’m not optimistic.
So there you go. and, as I was nominated, I need to nominate 15 others for Inspiring Blog Awards:
8. msalys (She quit smoking!)
9. at350degrees (warning, not vegan, but I love sweets!)
13. Our Hen House
14. The Vegan Dad
15. Choosing Raw
For everyone else, I thought I’d put up my dinner from last night:
Roasted golden and red beets, quinoa, and green beans. Simple, straightforward, and easy after a hard day of sitting on my tail.
The tricks, are to let the quinoa cook for 2 minutes less than normal, and then let it sit, off the heat, for 5 before serving, and when roasting the beets, 20 min at 425, and then 20 min at 405. Turn the heat down to ensure that they don’t burn and that all the sugars get trapped inside them.
Green beans are green beans. We steam them in the microwave usually, so no nutrients are lost in the steamer water.
All of this having been said, two questions:
1. Which blogs get your motor humming?
2. What is your zero-effort dinner, when you have a bit of time to relax?
P.S. Don’t get used to me posting on Tuesdays. I’m toying with Wednesdays and Sundays, but probably not more often than that.
