...and a new light...

...you may remember there was a hole in the ceiling where we took the old light fixture out (you can see it here)...and we couldn't reinstall it right up against the new bar...
...so we got a different one...
...and got that wired up...
...and put the cover on...
...and now the bar area is well lit...
...and we can cross another little thing off our list...

...Vegan Tofu Feta...and a Big Vegan Greek Salad...

...my lunch today...
...a couple of days ago...I cubed up a block of firm tofu...using my egg slicer...like I did for the cottage cheese here...and mixed it with some lemon juice...vinegar and Italian seasoning...
...the measurements are not exact...but probably a 1/4 cup of lemon juice and a 1/2 cup of apple cider vegar...and a couple of teaspoons of herbs...and let it marinate a few hours...or overnight...or a couple of days...
...then just assemble your Greek Salad...I added pickled baby beets and black Kalamata olives and a generous serving of the tofu feta on top...
...it was delicious...and it might look like this salad was big enough for all of us...but I really did eat the whole thing all by myself...

~Have a lovely weekend!

...from my kitchen window...

...I know I usually do these posts 'from my back deck'...but this was my view as I was cleaning the kitchen yesterday evening...

...a couple of things are making me happy here...this view with all the Spring outside...and the sweet smelling grape hyacinths that I brought inside...they are so fleeting in the spring...

...oh and another thing...the daylight until past 8:00 o'clock PM...that's making me happy too...

~Have a lovely day!
