Simply 4 (sure, solely FOUR!) substances blended collectively will provide you with the creamiest, tastiest, spiciest condiment so as to add to absolutely anything. Due to the cashew as soon as once more, this magnificence makes a terrific mayo substitute and works completely for drizzling on something heat – like tacos, fries, or these tasty tempeh + yam stuffed pitas. And the very best half? It’s completely oil free, and did I point out you solely want 4 substances?! Welcome to your new favorite kitchen sauce staple, one that can preserve for as much as every week if sealed in a clear jar within the fridge, and is really easy to have readily available once you really feel like making ready a fast + tasty meal. These tempeh + candy potato stuffed pita bread make for a brilliant hearty, protein loaded feast for these hungry winter days once you actually simply want one thing substantial.

On the real-life facet of issues, this week has been simply an superior one to this point. Considered one of my New 12 months’s resolutions was to make extra time for the particular ladies in my life, and with that I’m scripting this from the sofa of certainly one of my finest girlfriends, after an evening of scheming weekend girly getaways and methods to re-charge collectively within the metropolis (I left the household for Whistler on enterprise and determined to make an evening of it. In spite of everything, it seems they CAN fend for themselves!). In truth, this complete girl theme has been quite outstanding this week, as Monday was a catch-up date night time with one other very long time finest pal over dinner at Vij’s, adopted by luxurious foot massages. Tuesday I loved fancy girl lunch with my highest pal and enterprise associate (how fortunate am I), and within the night, attended an intimate trade occasion held in honour of Worldwide Ladies’s Day. Standing room solely. 75 superb ladies.

I’ve to be completely sincere and share that I don’t at all times really feel I’ve made the fitting choices after I select nights out instead of being with my household. I typically really feel like I ought to ‘be at residence’ – that by some means I’m both lacking one thing or they’ll be lacking me. I’ve at all times chosen household first, and it’s definitely not each week I’m out three nights in a row like this. However my children are older now, and it’s good to take the time for me, and to attach with great associates each outdated and new, one thing made even sweeter by watching a neighborhood come collectively round essential problems with our day. To maintain it heat and fuzzy, it actually simply feels good in all the fitting methods! Identical to your style buds would possibly after the primary chew of this scrumptious sauce 😉 You’ve. Been.
