35 before 35 – March 25, 2019 – Update 6

35 before 35 list

Previous Updates

 

1. 38/105 new recipes

31. Tofu Chorizo I googled tofu chorizo and combined and adapted 3 recipes to make some yummy taco filling.
32. Spicy Roasted Paprika Chickpeas with Mac-n-Trees Made this one up and it was really too fancy not to include. I used a daiya cheese for the mac.
33 & 34. Balsamic Dressing and Honey Mustard Dressing I forgot to buy dressing when we were having guests so I made some myself and it was way better than store bought. Balsamic: https://barefeetinthekitchen.com/best-balsamic-vinaigrette/ Honey Mustard: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/food-network-kitchen/honey-mustard-dressing-recipe-2011614
35. Cheezy-Rice Mexican Casserole – Made this one up and it was a delight. Rice and veggies and beans and daiya. Topped with crumbly chile-lime chips. A little too salty, but a good start.
36. Thai Baked Sweet Potatoes (The Minimalist Baker’s Everyday Cooking by Dana Shultz) – I made these with the next recipe & rice noodles for guests with a bit of an adapted version of the tahini sauce because it wasn’t quite to my taste. It was really seriously delicious.
37. Thai Quinoa Meatballs (The Minimalist Baker’s Everyday Cooking by Dana Shultz) – Yeah, this whole dinner was super good. I hate rolling up doughy balls but they’re always so tasty, it’s worth it. Since these are gluten-free they aren’t heavy at all, which is probably the worst thing about most vegan meatball recipes.
38. Mediterranean Baked Veggies with Couscous, Almonds, and Feta (Hello Fresh) – I’m still mad about how much I enjoy everything we make from Hello Fresh. It’s great. >:(

2. Bullet Journal 2019

I really enjoyed setting up the first few weeks of March but I took Spring Break off (even though it was a busy week full of things I probably should have written in my bullet journal, OH WELL.)  Trying to use my stickers more!!

3. A Weekly Effort 

I definitely put in more effort every single day than I did before I started this (the real goal!) but I never remember to take selfies, SHRUG. Look, I even wore MAKEUP last week.

4. Saturday Night Movies

I got hit by my movie anxiety (basically I just wanted to comfort watch Parks and Rec, and we did, we rewatched the whole series in the past month or so) and we only had one movie night this month, but it was a super good one. I loved this movie a lot.

19. The Shape of Water

5. Finish 5 TV shows

I guess re-watching Parks and Rec doesn’t count. :D We started the second season of Legion last weekend and I think it’s one of my favorite shows ever. Wild. I did some sorting in my TV Time account and I’m feeling like really getting into watching TV again. Oh and the first five seasons of Murder She Wrote are going to be on Prime April 1st? I mean, I was on Season 10 when it left Netflix, but I’m very pumped to do household chores while JB solves crimes.

7. Keep my Patreon up to date!

I got all of my February posts up in the first week. I’ll have more to share next month, for sure!

8. Keep my website updated

I added several photo sets this month! Fuji Instax Wide 001, Winter 001, Self 002, and Kodak Cameo Motor-EX 001.  I added a day from last August to my day in the life page.

13. Play more Video Games

I’m well aware that this is just too much but I didn’t put very many game pictures in my update last month so I over-compensated! I played a bunch of Final Fantasy IX (COMFORTING), Kingdom Hearts III (Sora selfies!!), one play through of Dream Daddy (got with the coffee dad, mmm), so much Sailor Moon Drops on my phone before it ends (I am SO SAD), a little Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition on my iPad, a little Hue (until it got TOO HARD, platformer puzzle games, my dudes) and started Breath of the Wild (oh no, it’s so fun!)

So have a gallery of THAT:

 

Yay!

17. Monthly Date Night

date001

Yeah, we chutneyed.

 

20. Yoga Goals

I didn’t do as much as I wanted to, but I found a good routine at the beginning of the month. I’m working on other things a lot more than I was a few months ago and I’m more active because of it, but it makes it harder to do yoga!

  1. I’ve been adding little ongoing projects to my life one at a time, both long term and some short things (like a really thorough deep cleaning in stages). Just this weekend I looked at my list and wondered…am I trying to do too much? Then I look at your 35 before 35 and … I remember fondly having that kind of energy. LOL.

    1. It’s a long list but I have two years to finish it AND I’m definitely not going to get everything checked off. Going over it and seeing what I have gotten done every month can make me go from “I didn’t do ANYTHING this month” to feeling pretty good about my productivity, though. And I made sure to add some things that are just “have fun” like, tv and movies and video games. I think it’s more to help me think about things a different way. You can check anything off a to-do list, even, watching tv, or having a nice breakfast, or writing in a journal, there are lots of things we do that we don’t think of as accomplishments but they really are. <3

      1. Oh yeah, I totally agree. The best thing about a list is checking stuff off of it :D I have an online journal, as well as a new pretty notebook I just bought for nothing but the Great Courses and documentaries I’ve watched. Our todos and things we need (from cinnamon to two new android tablets – and the Firefly has her own board with all the things she needs repaired or that we want for her). I mark stuff off as we get it and only wipe stuff off about once a month so we can see the things we have gotten done. The calendar with stickers on it really strokes that “I haven’t done anything” spot. I can sit in my spot across from it and see all the stickers for all the things I’ve accomplished. I don’t set goals for things like TV or anime or books, but I do note them in the online journal.
