Under the Weather, Up to My Eyeballs in Garlic

My crap-tastical day started off with a 4:00AM cough attack. I felt better as the day went along, and I feel pretty good now, but it totally ruined my sleep.

The rest of my day (the work part) was not an improvement. Half of the office is out, which is total BS, I was stuck doing Wwwwwaaaaayyyyy more than usual, had one tiny breakdown with 30 minutes to go in the day, and actually counted how many times I considered quiting then and there (I stopped when I reached the 20s). But I've been there for 3 1/2 years and can't leave until I finish my Master's degree (HOPEFULLY) in May. BANE OF MY MOFO EVER-LOVING EXISTENCE.

*breathe* Time for some food, kids.

I FINALLY got some Daiya in the mail yesterday from veganessentials (woot!). However, I went to the Food for Thought supermarket earlier in the day (hadn't been since Feb) and *surprise* found Daiya for only $0.20 more...whatever. GreenAcres Market across town STILL doesn't have Daiya (though I've actively suggested they stock it). Someone needs to do their research there.

So, I made a recipe I've been itching to make all week: Peg @ Learning Vegan's Ooey-Gooey Garlic Bread.

Food just looks prettier in the oven, no?'s soooooooooooooooooooooooo good! I added way more scallions, garlic, and garlic powder to the spread, but it was really mofo tasty. I did add too much crushed red pepper flakes to the pizza sauce (you know it's too much when it slowly burns the F out of your lips and won't wipe off), but easily remedied.

"Cheesy" it wrong to eat the whole thing?

You guys have to try this. Surriously...

Here's to hoping my health improves substantially for Girls' Nite on Saturday!! I'm going to have to DVR "America's Cutest Cat" on Animal Planet Sat. 9/8c. I'm not a cat person, but I would watch that...

What is your go-to recipe or treatment when you are under the weather?



  1. OOOo that looks so good. I love soups when I'm not feeling well.

  2. Oh my! That garlic bread looks so awesome!
