A little bit of this... a Little bit of that...

Well I am going to start this post by saying THAT IM A WINNER!!!

Ok ok... dont get upset... we're all winners!.. but seriously I won something!

Vegan Snorkeler's Lisa was having an Online shoe contest. All you had to do was leave a comment on her blog and you entered to win a 50$ gift certificate to

Shoes... YES PLEASE... and guess who's name got chosen! WAHOO!

Thank you so much Lisa!!!! ( i cant tell you how pumped I am for this!)

Second order of business... I had a wonderful audition today!!! I felt like I did really well and they seemed genuinely Impressed. I went in to sing for Val in A Chorus Line.... Chorus Line=One of my DREAM SHOWS!!!! "GOD I HOPE I GET IT... I HOPE I GET IT!!!!!!!"

Ok Ok Ill spare your the cheesy Musical Theatre stuff 

As For EATS... Nothing too exciting lately. I whipped this together the other day. Homemade vegan Coleslaw, fresh greens, sprouts and avocado... definitely yummy :)
Here are some leftovers that I had for lunch this week (from Valentines day) Marsala Seitan over Israeli cous cous and broccoli raab. :)
This morning I was craving oatmeal for some reason. I topped it with fresh strawberries, blueberries, dried cranberries, coconut and some vegan chocolate chi
ps (god i love them!!!)
It def lasted me all day... but I think Im more of a fan of my smoothies in the morning... but hey it was cold and a warm bowl of oatmeal always does the trick :)
Here is a new product that I am a HUGE fan of.. Glutino Pretzels.. they are AWESOMEEEE theyre light and  crunchy... just salted enough and gluten free! Def recommend them :)
I like eating them with sunbutter or Mustard.

I dont know about you all.. but sometimes i just crave SAUCE. Not pasta... not ravioli.. but plain old good eatin sauce!!!

Tonight was one of those nights!!! I cooked myself up some spaghetti Squash, steamed some veggies...and topped it with some rice cheese and you guessed it.. a but load of sauce!!!

I couldnt finish it all... common i mean thats a huge portion.. but damn was it yummy

well friends... thats about all.. sorry i dont have anything more exciting to share!!! 

till next time :)

I really want those pretzels to!

I love A Chorus Line!!! Now I have One stuck in my head, haha!

Dinner sounds great I think I love the sauce and veggies more than the pasta itself to. :)

Congrats on winning the contest...and on a fabulous audition! Do you have any tips for handling nerves during auditions? I still get super nervous when I audition. Positive visualization seems to help me a little, but I'd love it if you have any advice!

I also do the same thing with sauce and veggies. :-)

Gina said...

I totally hear you on the sauce. My favorite part of pizza is always the sauce.

Glad to hear the audition went well!!

Hey girlie girl,
I can find the fruit crisps at Whole Foods (right next to the chocolate bars), and they also sell some flavors in a big box at Costco stores. But otherwise, you can get 'em online :o)

Katrina said...

I crave sauce, too! Oh.. and Glutino pretzels are A-MAZING!!!!!! My husband thinks they are better than regular pretzels. (I, personally, don't remember what regular pretzels taste like. So I just go with it!)

Yay weekend!
Have you seen Spring Awakening yet? If so, what did you think??

I just thought I'd ask because I don't get to talk musical theatre with many people...hooray for blog friends! :-)

Emily said...

So neat that your friend was IN Spring Awakening! I was sad to hear it closed, too...hate the economy right now. I saw the touring company, and I thought the energy of the cast and the powerful storyline were amazing!

Becca said...

I'm the same way with sauce. Give me lots of sauce, a little pasta please!
