Stocking up with a kitten and a new book!

After work today I made another trip to the local Asian store, Mekong, that will be closing in a few days. I’m so sad! Eric and I stocked up on rice noodles, tamari, seaweed, rice vinegar and green tea.

The green tea is organic too!

It was super cold outside today, but the sun was shining! Miss Purrito was checking out the sun and looking for the other neighborhood kitties.

She’s so curious.

Can you see her curly whisker? She has one whisker that always curls up. It looks like she used a curling iron on it. She’s always had it and it’s super cute!

A few months ago while browsing Kickstarter, I spotted a project for a vegan cookbook.  The design was lovely and the recipes sounded like food that Eric and I would love to try.  I backed the project and it was funded!  Today my cookbook arrived in the mail!  The book has huge photos with almost every recipe!  I like that.  The book also has a matte finish which I prefer over books with glossy covers.  There were also a handful of stickers and a bookmark in the package.  If you want to order your own copy of the book you can do that here!

ANNNDD…what I’m most excited about…GULAB JAMUNS! These doughy fried sweet balls are so good! I’ve had them a few times at Indian restaurants when I ate dairy. This might be the first recipe I try out of the book!

Fun stickers to stick on everything!

Oh, and there’s an acknowledgements page at the end of the book too.
