Today is an Elton John day.

I’m not quite sure what that means except that I had to get out of the house to work on a paper and the first music I threw on was Bennie and the Jets.  And of course, instead of writing my paper, I’m blogging.  Procrastination at my finest.

Today is also Cinco de Mayo and to be honest, I completely forgot.  Today was going to be the day I shared the amazing danish recipe I found but instead I decided that in the spirit I would share this awesome slaw I found over on Kathy’s blog-Lunch Box Bunch.  Not only does it use jicama, it is also vegan.  Usually slaw recipes are heavily mayo based and so when I found this spruced up slaw recipe, I knew I had to try it.  (She also had a few other vegan Cinco De Mayo ideas- so fabulous!)


The verdict?  Delicious!  Even M (who is a fan of mayo based slaw) liked it.

I loved the use of tahini, hemp seeds, and citrus (which I actually used diced up pineapple.)  Want to try?  Check out the recipe over at the Family Kitchen!

Also, since I’m procrastinating and all- look what I purchased yesterday!

I went to the local bike shop about getting my Mom’s old bike fixed up and they had this 1972 Schwinn for sale.  I’ve been looking for a bike to ride back and forth to school (I love my mountain bike but it’s just too much work) and I found this.  Impulse purchase but I fell head over heels in love with it!

Okay!  Now to tackle my last paper!
