On the left, Refried beans and on the right, chipotle lentils. I just cooked some brown lentils up, drained them and then cooked them with onions, peppers, chipotle taco seasoning and tomato paste. Yummy!

As promised, here are some gorgeous swatches of my other 2 orders from Silk Naturals and Shiro Cosmetics.
Silk Naturals! All on top of Milani eye primer L to R: Rendezvous (matte dark plum), Semi-Sweet (chocolate brown with pink interference shimmer), Boost (Deep peach with gold interference shimmer), Double Tap (free gift. Peachy champagne), Grainy (warm golden taupe tan). I forgot to swatch Mysterious!
Afterglow blush which is a dupe for Nars Orgasm, a peachy pink shimmering sheer blush. So good for tan skin tones.
A small order from my fave Shiro Cosmetics!
From L to R: Molag Bal (matte rose brown with subtle white sparks), Baker's Boy (light shimmery golden brown), Mockingjay (metallic brown-copper bronze), Star-Crossed (blackened coppery brown), Play Red Rover With the Fence (deep opaque plum with bright violet sparks).
I'm in love with them all!!! Beautiful choices and quality products. Go Cruelty Free today!
Silk Naturals make gorgeous dupes of MAC, Urban Decay, Nars and more!
Shiro is just a unique brand that I'm forever faithful to.
Edited to add: I forgot to swatch two Shiro shadow that I got. One is Don't Hurt Me and the other is Too Big To Be Allowed.
Don't Hurt Me on top is a gorgeous "smokey, blackened plum-copper with a soft rose overlay" and Too Big To Be Allowed is an earthy brown with pink sparkles. I used a bit of elf glitter primer underneath to bring out the pink sparks.

Veggie torta from Tacomiendo.
Super Pretzel with mustard is the perfect snack.
Stuff from the Whole Foods vegan bar. Kale salad, Beyond Meat (ok), mushrooms, mashed potatoes (made with coconut milk - weird.)
The pizza bar at Whole Foods has a vegan pizza. Mmmmm.

I placed a few orders with several makeup companies recently as a late bday gift to myself. Today I had time to swatch my Brija Cosmetics and Tater Rounds Beauty eyeshadows.
Brija order: I Don't Age (rose gold), Hot Chocolate (warm brown), Take A Selfie (grey brown taupe), Page 394 (charcoal grey with blue tinge), Boo! (Free gift. Light sparkly grey blue).
Swatches in order as above. So beautiful! I especially love HotChocolate and I Don't Age. Taken in front of window.
These cuties are from Tater Rounds Beauty.
Cranberry Sauce (cranberry metallic red), Roasted Chestnuts (brown taupe with gold), Storm Cloud (grey brown matte taupe).
In front of window.
Indirect light. The red is not very metallic as it was described, but still pretty. The grey brown taupe leans very grey. It even has a purple tinge to it. Tater Rounds Beaty
All in all very happy with my orders. Next up, Shiro Cosmetics and Silk Naturals!

Finally made the Winter Warmer Hotpot recipe by Mary McCartney. Very satisfying and tasty, alone or on top of rice. My herbs of choice were summer savory and rosemary/thyme. I also used veggie crumbles instead of veggie burger chunks. I forgot to add cornstarch to the veggie broth so mine came out like a soup but still good!

Scrambled tofu made with addition of The Vegg. I made a batch of "yolk" and added some of it to the tofu while it was cooking in the pan. I like the taste of it, it's not far off from what egg yolk tasted like.
Dal and rice. Trying to be healthy.
Lunch at Zankou.
Apple ginger spice cookies. Recipe from vegetarian times magazine. Treating myself this weekend. I'm usually not eating so much sugar during this pregnancy.

Hello all! Yesterday was my 40th birthday and we went to our fave vegan Japanese restaurant Shojin. I love this place.
