The end is near…..

Well the end of 2010.  Hee hee.  I can’t believe the year is almost over and the new year is almost here.  I look forward to the new year and the challenge.  I am also pleased to see the comments and emails I reveived about “The 365 Day Project”.  A few people are going to shoot for a whole year like us, some are going to cut down to going out to eat once a month and others are just going to give it a try.  Pretty awesome. 

Before the month is over and the challenge begins, I plan to go eat at two places.  A local coffee shop that is opening at a new and bigger location.  Their tofu scrable and vegan breakfast tacos are to die for.  And we plan to give a Southern fried vegan trailer a try.  A friend is coming into town this weekend.  He and his lady friend want to check it out as well. 

The challenge will be fun and interesting.  I know there will be times where I really want to go to Whole Foods and grab some tacos or a slice of Daiya cheese pizza for the boys, but I plan on staying strong.  This week I am making empanadas, some to freeze.  And I am attempting tamales this weekend.  Fingers crossed they work, because I will freeze some. 

Well, I am off to eat some lunch.  Talking about all this food is making me hungry.  Keep me posted on your plans for the challenge.  See you in 2011!

28 days to go…..

The challenge begins in 28 days.  I plan on making tamales next week and before the month is over, check out a local coffee shop I love.  They have moved to a bigger building and have an even better vegan menu.  Yippee! 

I plan on making tamales to freeze as well as some casseroles.  That way, when temptation calls and I want to order take-away, grab a snack from the local co-op grocer or go to Whole Foods, I can say, “no”.  Since the creation of my field roast recipe, I plan to make some, slice it and put it in the freezer. 

I am actually looking forward to seeing how much money we save not going out to eat, ordering coffee, or buying dessert somewhere.  I think I will use the money save to go on holiday with my family.  The Grand Canyon sounds nice.  🙂

Well, enjoy the holiday season.  See you on January 1, 2011.
