I had planned to just do rice and veggies (more of the frozen veggies I'd used yesterday), with Bragg's Liquid Aminos to season (I've started using that instead of soy sauce recently), but then I remembered the orange preserves I'd also picked up at the dollar store, and that made me think of the Mandarin orange crispy chick'n from Gardein, so I figured maybe I could make a similar orange sauce for the veggies. At the end of the veggies sautéing, I mixed in a spoonful of orange preserves (which included actual pieces of orange!), some Bragg's, some lemon juice, and a light sprinkling of salt (maybe I should have thrown in some minced garlic, too?). It tasted similar enough to the sauce I'd had before, and it definitely gave the veggies a nice flavor; served with the rice, it was pretty good overall.
P.S. This jar was SUPER hard to open...
Oh, and breakfast and lunch were leftovers, yum!

Leela and Buttons have been getting better at hanging out together. Here they are playing with the yarn.
And later, Buttons noticed that Leela still had some scrappins' in her food bowl, so she decided to lick the bowl clean for her, how considerate!
