Happy List {April 13, 2020}

I took an unintentional Happy List break over the weekend. Hope everyone had a Happy Easter. Here’s today’s Happy List with a couple of extras!:

We were lucky this week to be able to pre-order some @peacefulprovisions vegan doughnuts…..warning, they sell out so quickly! This week their menu was inspired by some of their fellow Peekskill restaurants. We got “Gleason’s”: traditional yeast doughnut topped with almond ricotta-thyme icing and a lemon olive-oil drizzle and “Peekskill Brewery”: a traditional yeast doughnut topped with a blackberry sour icing (using Peekskill Brewery’s simple blackberry sour) and a basil icing drizzle! These were a tasty breakfast treat! Pre-orders for Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings open up on Monday! . . . . . . #peacefulprovisions #peekskill #peekskilleats #westchestereats #gleasons #peekskillbrewery #doughnutgram #veganveganeats #westchestervegan #devourpower #delishdelights #nomnomnom #instayum #foodgasm #happyfood #biteofthebest #treatyoself #supportlocal #sweettooth #breakfastgoals

1. Vegan donuts – These donuts need to be pre-ordered for weekend pick up and sell out so quickly. We finally remembered to order some earlier in the week and were able to get them again.

2. Celebrating birthdays – Over the weekend we participated in two birthday celebrations. The first was a neighborhood singing of Happy Birthday to one of the boy’s who lives on our street. The second was participating in a birthday car parade for one of my son’s friends. The mom had the fire truck lead the parade with lights and sirens. Birthdays are hard, especially for kids, during this quarantine.

3. Georgia Aquarium kitten field trip – How cute are these kittens?!!

4. Family dumpling making – My daughter’s birthday is tomorrow and she requested a luau themed dinner. So we all worked together yesterday to pre-make the dumplings. They are in the freezer and ready to be cooked.

5. Some Good News (SGN) with John Krasinski – Such a fun show, I had to post it again, since there’s a new episode! I laughed, I cried…..all the feels!



  1. Give me allthebabyanimalpics!! So cute. Mmm dumplings, that’s one I’ve never even attempted to make at home, but I love to eat them! Happy birthday to your daughter! Definitely going to check out Some Good News, we could all use some of that right now! And I just really like John Krasinski 🙂

    • Yes, baby animals….and babies are definitely making me smile during quarantine! After making the dumplings we all agreed, the ones we buy at HMart are so worth it over the homemade! Oh I hope you check out Some Good News! If you like John Krasinski you’ll love it!
