Tofu.

 Or favorite breakfast is scramble tofu, I treat it as a scramble eggs so I add what I would normally add to eggs. Every time is different depends on what we have in the fridge. This time we had mushrooms, zucchini and kale. I add onion and garlic, turmeric, kale seasoning and nutritional yeast.

Morning routine.

 My mornings start really early because I love the quiet time before everybody wakes up. It is My time, time to relax, prepare for the day without being interrupted. I usually wake up 5am,(sometimes 4am), feed the cats and wash up. Then I light a candle since it's still dark and spend about 15 minutes reading the Bible. This was one of my goals this year to read the Bible and get closer to God. After that I clean the dishes, sweep and clean cats litter, make a tea and spend some time on my computer writing posts and doing research. After all that I still have time for breakfast, reading and cross stitching. I think that having a morning routine sets you well for the rest of the day. When I have days that I sleep longer I feel out of place, straggling all day to catch up.

Beet burgers.

 For Christmas I always make red borscht but after I have a lot of veggies left, mostly beets. I didn't want it to go to waste so I made burgers with them, no recipe just mixed few things and tried. I mixed the veggies from the soup in a food processor with a can of chickpeas, seasoning and a bit of flour. They came out good, however they are really soft so it's harder to fry them. I made so many that I froze few for future dinners.

Reading.

December is a really busy month and so I didn't have time to read much. I only read 3 books. 




2020 was a good year I never in my life read so many books. 159 books, most of them were audio but still 62 physical books that is a lot like for me. 


I hope that 2021 will be as good as 2020

Books.

 And so we are back to regular days, Christmas is done, New Year is here and it's time to get back to work and school. Yesterday I cleaned all the Christmas decorations and lights and now the house looks so empty. Here is last picture with my tree, some hot chocolate in my new cup and few books I received as gifts plus magnetic bookmarks.

Perogies.

 Big part of Christmas is making perogies, we make two types, one with prunes and the other with sauerkraut and mushrooms. We also make ravioli with mushrooms and those are for the red borscht. This food is the best from all that I make for Christmas and I always make extra so that we can eat it for few days. I make them ahead of time and freeze it.

Fish.

 I know Christmas is done but I will continue my posts with food just because there is not enough days to show it all, so today another traditional dish that my Mom always made for Christmas. She called it Greek style fish, now if that actually is a Greek style fish I'm not sure but I'm sticking with it. You basically fry all veggies add tomato paste and spices and serve it with the fish, and once again cabbage is the main ingredient. 

Cabbage, carrots, parsnip, leeks and celery root. 


Add al spice, black pepper and bay leaves.
