My Aha Moment

This morning, like most mornings in the last month, I did not want to get out of bed.  I started to ask myself what was wrong with me.  I usually get out of bed start a load of laundry or go straight to the kitchen to start my coffee.  
I only wanted to stay in bed and read a book or read the latest in Twitter or Facebook.  
Then it hit me.  
It's December 4.  Close to our school break. Close to the end of the year.  
I am burned out!  
It's the same feeling when Spring break comes around.  Counting the weeks and days until Summer break when I can just sit by the pool and read a book or play in the pool with my kids.  
Except this time I wanted to snuggle with my blankie and a good book.  
So starting tomorrow, I'm going to make myself get out of bed at 7am and start the laundry and make my coffee.  Get my blood pumping and plan out the rest of the day.  

I had some leftover Daiya cheese from our Thanksgiving feast.  I knew I needed to use it before it spoils. Realized I haven't made this delicious dish in a while....

Pasta Pizza

1 lb pasta (any shape)
pizza sauce (I used Ragu but whatever you have at hand is good. Any red/marinara sauce will do)
8oz or more of any non-dairy cheese you might have at hand

Cook pasta according to directions
While the pasta is being drained heat up the pizza sauce until it bubbles
Add the pasta back into the pot with the sauce and add the cheese
Heat and cover until the cheese gets nice and melty.

You can add whatever veggies you have, TVP, or any other vegan protein you might have.
