Tempeh Day

There haven't been any jobs posted this week that I want to apply to and my temp job ended on Wednesday, which meant that on Thursday, I had time to play without too much guilt.

I spent the afternoon at Jerri's. We had an awesome lunch which included pan fried and seasoned tempeh chunks. We also had a really nice amount of time to catch up and play with Zoe once she woke up from her post-yoga nap.

The weather was mild enough that I was able to walk to Jerri's and then, afterwards, walk to the Wedge. I needed to go there to buy a few ingredients for the tempeh cutlets I had starting marinating that morning. Without pre-planning it, I had a day of tempeh feasts.

I didn't take a picture of Jerri's gorgeous salad, but I did bust out the camera for the evening meal of Tempeh Cutlets Provencal (from Vegetarian Times - January 2009) and salad. The marinated and baked cutlets were delicious with the red pepper, caper and white wine tomato sauce poured over them.

It is such a treat to have the time and energy to put into making nice meals. Don't get me wrong, I'll be happy to go back to working a full-time job as soon as an offer comes along. In the meantime, I am trying my best to stay content making enough money to keep the bills paid, job searching like crazy and spending the rest of the time indulging in non-work pursuits.
