After all of my shenanigans, I just wanted to go home and cry, but I needed to stop for cat food. I am so glad that I needed to stop, because Smith's randomly had two packages of Follow Your Heart American style slices for $1.69 each! It is so incredibly random because Smith's doesn't even sell any Follow Your Heart cheese! They only have daiya and this other cheese that is vegetarian, not vegan. I can only assume they received it as a mistake, but how lucky am I to have noticed it? I had to make an exception to my new health plan for that deal, I mean come on. The cheese is good until March so it's not even like I have to eat it right away. Anyway, it felt like a little reward for making it through a very rough day.

I'm going to make this gravy that I saw on a little Whole Foods commercial on YouTube. The gravy has a whole clove of roasted garlic, 1 roasted parsnip, slivered almonds and veggie stock all blended together. It looked amazing, and I always use the packets of vegan gravy mix because I don't have a talent for gravy. So this is more in line with my new health kick. Even though I'm somewhat of a holiday grump, tomorrow I am making mashed potatoes and this new gravy, and also I'm going to attempt an oil and vegan butter free stuffing. I have fond memories of my mom tinkering in the kitchen all day during the holidays actually several days before hand too, but I just always want to tinker in the kitchen myself.
