Trick or Treat...

I had a fantastic run this afternoon. The weather was perfect. The music was perfect and I made it extra long too. I was gone for a little over an hour and it felt good AMAZING!
I came home to this guy sitting on my front porch...

Jason and Linsey did a great job on our Vomitting Pumpkin!

After my run I needed a shower and a snack so I made myself a yogurt bowl.

(so much for World Vegan Day)

I have realized today that I could NEVER be a vegan. It is too hard for me because I love yogurt, cheese, honey and sometimes need some cows milk in my cereal. I have been a strict vegetarian for almost 7 years, but being vegan will never be something I completely convert to. I have the utmost respect for those people who can. I think it's great and I appreciate what they're doing.

Anyway, off that tangent, we got some house work done and Jason was able to study a little bit, but Trick or Treating time was soon approaching and we needed to have dinner before Jason and Linsey could leave. I've had some coupons from Chipotle lying around forever so Jason took one of them and off he went to grab us some tacos and burritos.

These were phenomenal! I had two of the vegetarian tacos (put the last one in the fridge) with cilantro-lime rice, black beans, pico de gallo, corn salsa and (my fav) guacamole. My second vegan meal of the day. I guess I'm doing pretty good after all!

Once everyone had full tummies I got Linsey in her costume and helped her with her make up. She didn't want to be a scary witch, but I thought she needed some color. So I took some of my different colored eye shadows and covered her face with them giving her a grayish, silverish, greenish tint and then colored her lips a pretty bright pink color. She looked so cute and the hat just put it over the top.

I hope she has a great time and doesn't forget to find me a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup!

I'm off to watch something with Regan because she is very upset she couldn't go with Sissy and Daddy and so far we haven't had 1 trick or treater...

I am not a vegan or vegetarian, but I LOVE Chipotle Vegetarian burritos! I try to order vegetarian a lot when we eat out because it really cuts down on the fat intake and calories (when done right)of restaurant food. Some of my favs are Pizza Hut Veggie lovers pizza, Veggie quesadillas from just about anywhere, and Panera vegetarian fiesta con queso soup. It's to die for! One of my favorite vegetarian burgers is a portabella burger. If you haven't tried it, it's a must!

Portabello Burgers is something we make at home ALL the time. Jason loves to grill and that is something that goes great on the grill. You should also try the Grilled Veggie Burrito Naked from good!
