Old and New

I was given this table by my downsizing neighbors so now I finally have my little blogging station! Don't mind the litter box in the background, I set my area up in the second bedroom, otherwise known as the kitty room. They're kind enough to share some of their space with me. As you can see, Roxy is checking everything out, making sure the table is sturdy and all that. Such a great helper!
I had this delicious breakfast the other day. I made fries seasoned with garlic, onion salt, smoked paprika and cumin and dipped them in a quick guacamole. I cut the potatoes long board style so I could easily fit lots of guac on each one. Delicious! Who needs toast when you have potatoes!
Last night I made oven fries with smoked paprika and onion salt, and dipped them in a combo of Carolina BBQ sauce and daiya ranch. I had picked up the ranch when Smith's had the daiya dressings on sale. I have to say while it's okay, it is no competition for my beloved Just Ranch. I would definitely buy the blue cheeze again when on sale, but probably not the ranch. The ranch has that fake daiya taste that makes a lot of their cheeses gross when not cooked. Like I said, it's okay but Just Ranch and also FYH vegan ranch are both cheaper and much tastier. Regardless it was still a tasty meal, and Carolina Gold BBQ and vegan ranch are seriously a great dip combo.
Kanye looks so cute peeking out of the window here. There are a couple of stray kitties who I feed, and it drives Kanye and Joan crazy! They're constantly having to look out and see what's going on. And of course Afro is always trying to sneak out, and one of the kitties looks super mean, like he or she has LIVED and they will cut you. I don't even think Brutus is up for that face to face.

  2. I still haven't tried the Daiya ranch! I don't love the blue cheese for salads, but it's okay as a dip. I do love me some Just Ranch though, so I don't know if it top that. Fries & guac sounds soooooo good.

    1. The daiya ranch doesn't hold a candle to Just Ranch! I was pretty disappointed to be honest.
      Fries and guac are really surprisingly delicious!

  3. These downsizing neighbours are proving very handy!
    I bought some of the Daiya Ranch on sale a while ago but I am yet to use it. I suspected it wouldn't be as good as the Blue Cheeze.

    1. It is not even close to the deliciousness of the Blue Cheeze!I probably won't buy it again, even on sale.

  4. Hooray for more gifts from the downsizing neighbors! I love your blogging station. I'm sure it feels nice to be able to sit down at a desk and do your work. I've never tried the Daiya dressings before but I've heard mixed reviews. The potatoes look delicious as always.

    Kanye is so cute! A little watch kitty :)

    1. It is so nice having a desk, and space and all of that. I love it.
      The daiya blue cheeze is stellar, but I really don't recommend the ranch. A real let down.
      She is keeping us all safe!

  5. I really like your blogging station. If you lived closer, I would pass on some of my things- I need to downsize. Ranch is my dressing of choice, but sometimes Bleu cheese is a good change. I have got to make some fries.

    1. If you are ever looking for a vegan ranch, try Just Ranch and skip the daiya ranch! But the daiya Blue Cheeze is very delicious!

  6. How are you doing today? Have a wonderful day- we might have some sunshine here today! We have our church Kamp 4 Kids starting today with the Jr & Sr counsellors moving into their tents. The campers actually start Monday 9am-4pm. I will be helping with crafts. This is the 26th year of doing this each summer. God is good and it's great to share God with these kids.
