Improv Bean and corn enchiladas

I had some leftover black bean/corn soup and some leftover refried beans. I poured out most of the liquid from the soup and put the beans and corn in a bowl. Mad some quick enchilada sauce (using Mary McDougall's recipes) and while that was cooking I mixed the refried beans into the black beans. I then added a few sliced black olives. Used small corn tortillas and made about 5 rollups in a round casserole dish. Poured the sauce on the bottom and top and baked. Came out great and tasty.

Back to work tomorrow. Two more weeks on this awful 4am-2:30pm shift. Not sure what shift I'll be on then, but I'm sure my boss will find a way to mess with me.

I've lost 4 pounds in 6 days so far eating McDougall vegan. My blood pressure is also down and I've stopped my bp meds. I'm so excited about that!

Summer doings

Well, our trip to Victoria BC was wonderful! The weather was great, the city is sooo lovely, and the people are nice. Had great food but with all the walking we did, I actually lost weight. We went to the museum and Parliament, which was right across the street from our hotel. We stayed at a place called the Embassy Inn, about a block from the Inner Harbor of Victoria. My partner's mother came with us and she had a great time as well. The Prieus used only about 18 gallons of gas to drive up there and around the area, then back.

Now we're back and back at work. I started eating more vegan again, but not going to say much about that until it sticks for longer.
