Yesterday, those of us who have reached our eighteenth birthdays utilized our freedom by participating in the election of the President of the United States (among other candidates and questions).
Being an altogether apolitical (but, I like to think, patriotic) individual, I do not feel the need to express my opinion on who I voted for, or my thoughts on the outcome–which at the time of this writing, we do not know–but I would like to tell you, Jenn and my fellow What I Ate Wednesday compatriots, some other things I definitely voted for on Election Day.With the day off from school, I voted YES to sleeping in. [7:30 AM is sleeping in to an elementary school teacher.]
I voted YES to Gold Rush apples. I vote NO to the fact that they are no longer available from the orchard.
I voted YES to Hemp Hearts.
I voted YES to a two-hour friend date.
I voted YES to Banana Bread Nutty Butter.*
*By the way, today is the last day to place your orders for November!
And I continue to vote YES to

I definitely vote YES to the act of throwing random veggies from your freezer and fridge into a pot far exceeding expectations.
And to calling it the Soup of the (Three Day) Week!
I always vote yes to Yogi Ginger Tea, but this impulse buy Kroger Private Selection Sweet Cinnamon Spice just might be part of my new nightly tea platform. [The combination of cinnamon, orange peel, ginger, and who knows what else literally smells--and tastes--like the holidays.]
