So it’s finally Friday! Is everyone else excited that it’s the weekend? Here in Calgary, it’s supposed to be beautiful so the plan is to enjoy it while we have it!

So I am also 1 week of my eat no meat January, and surprisingly it hasn't been very hard. I actually think it has been fun to try to figure out different things to eat rather than the typical meals that I tend to make. Needless to say, I have been spending tons of time on Pinterest getting ideas of what to cook. One thing I have been doing is cooking up big batches of vegetables to keep in the fridge to add on to any meals that I make.

This broccoli has been one of my favourites, so good in fact I have made it twice this week. The flavours of the fresh garlic and ginger with the bit of heat with the Sriracha is such a good combo and goes so well as a side dish with just about anything else your eating, or in my case, cold right out of the fridge as a mid-day snack.
