  • Hello, Instagram

    This was taken one year ago. It's hard to believe that she was so little. At 2.5 months old, I felt like I had already known her for years. Yet, I still had no idea what I was doing. I was a new mother, and I felt completely on my own. I told myself to take it day by day, and so I did. Somehow, she and I made it through and although she's still so young, our bond today is so unbelievably strong. 
If it's not yet apparent, I'm in an extraordinarily sentimental mood. This morning I found a notebook that I had purchased when @omgkersh and I were seriously considering adoption. I was planning on detailing our journey for our future child. Looking at the date of the receipt, it read 02/25/15. Little did I know that exactly one year later, my daughter would be born on 02/25/16. 
I truly believe that we are constantly being shown signs, we just don't always pay attention. I view what happened today as a reminder to stay strong during times of uncertainty. Things usually work out for the better. I just need to have faith. To say that she has a piece of my heart would be an understatement.

vegetarian spaghetti with meatless meat.

i am a vegetarian, and have been for nearly three years. that is not to say that i don’t miss meat. in fact, my daily menu consists of some sort of a meat substitute, generally at supper time. whether it is a veggie burger, veggie hotdog, or veggie ground beef, i try to incorporate at least one of these miracle products into my meals!! delicious, quick, and safer than real meat, i thought that i would share my vegetarian spaghetti recipe with you this week (and perhaps convert at least one of you into a once-a-week-vegetarian).

you will need:

1 box of spaghetti (whole wheat is best)

1 package of vegetarian ground beef

olive oil

vegetables of choice (i used a green pepper, tomato, zucchini, and parsley)

salt + pepper

tomato sauce (optional)

cheese (optional)

in a large sauce pan begin to boil the spaghetti. remember that whole wheat noodles take additional time.

meanwhile chop the vegetables and combine them into a large frying pan. cook over medium heat. add salt and pepper.

when vegetables begin to brown, add the veggie ground beef. continue to cook for a few minutes. (if you wish to have tomato sauce, add it now).

once ready, remove spaghetti from heat. drain and set aside. remove veggie mixture from heat. combine the two, add cheese, parsley, and voila!
