Guess What Today Is?

by HEAB on November 29, 2009

No, it’s not Pancake Sunday, but if you missed it, yesterday was Pancake Saturday. More about today later. First, I must share my exciting Saturday with you. Yes, it got even better after my Mole Pancakes. πŸ™‚

Erica from Itzy’s Kitchen was in town for the Thanksgiving Holiday, and we had the best time hanging out together. First up was a vinyasa class at Yoga Country.


Erica is the cute little properly groomed one on your right. πŸ˜‰ We then met up with her husband Josh….I even got to meet Frank the Bulldog. LOVE FRANK! Erica had scheduled Josh for a massage, and afterwards, we all went out for some lunch at Fido’s in Nashville, CD included. We forgot to get a group shot, but here’s one of the girls.


Yoga makes me taaaalllll. I had my usual, the Mediterranean salad. I always request it to be topped with a veggie burger patty. Mmm, hummus + pita + veggie burger = a happy HEAB.


Look how thoughtful Erica is…


Erica, you know me so well! She brought me Sunbutter, tahini, a kabocha squash, and a new candle for my massage studio. Thank you so much my friend!

Gotta go, have another blogger meet-up this morning. Lots of bloggers are in Nashville for Thanksgiving. Love it. Oh, but before I go, I wanted to wish a Happy Birthday to…


HEAB!!!! My blog turns 1 today, and I can promise you much celebrating all week long. Stay tuned…

P.S. Please go visit Chocolate Covered Katie. Only 2 days left to raise money for The Enough Project.

I like the red necklace that you’re often wearing… what is it?

Heather Eats Almond Butter November 29, 2009 at 12:36 pm

Meg, Not sure. When I left my last job, my boss gave it to me as a going away gift. It’s some sort of Chinese symbol, but I can’t remember its meaning. Thank you though – I love it too.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO HEAB’s blog!!! Love the picture of the candle in the almond butter. Much better than cake πŸ™‚

I had pancake Sunday today after reading your previous post. My protein pancakes were super runny though. I even put a little coconut flour in them to help. It also made more than two, but I ate them ALL!! Oh well, they were super tasty. I didn’t have instant coffee for my sauce. I had Sunbutter and carob sauce–double yum! πŸ˜‰

Sounds like so much fun meeting up with all these other bloggers. You are the only blogger meet up I’ve ever had and I still feel so blessed to know you πŸ™‚

Heather Eats Almond Butter November 29, 2009 at 12:43 pm

Thanks Haley! You may have seen this post, but here is my favorite recipe for homemade veggie burgers: They remind me of Sunshine Burgers. πŸ™‚
