A Bowl of Chili and Some Hot Weather

Tonight I had one of my standby meals. It can be doubled to last for days (it's just my husband and I in this household), it's filling, and most importantly, it's yummy!

It's vegan chili! Of all the chili recipes I've tried, this is my favorite, hands down. All it needs is a bit of avocado and tortilla chips on top for some crunchiness.

If you don't have this book, I highly recommend it. My great aunt gave it to me years ago, and I use the book all the time - there are tons of great recipes in this one. While the book isn't completely vegan (there are some recipes including eggs or dairy), most recipes egg and dairy free.

A few hours after dinner I headed down to my local gym for some intervals on the elliptical, followed by a few ab exercises. I had plans to go running this evening, but it was just too warm here. After a whole lot of rain and cooler weather the past several weeks, suddenly the sun was beaming down today, and the temperature was much higher than it's been in months. Summer is quickly approaching in the southern hemisphere.

Tomorrow is a day off work for me, so I'll be hitting up a spin class in the AM, and hopefully some sort of baking will take place in the evening.
