Tortellini Soup with Beans and Chard
Crunchy Kale and Coconut Bowl
Vegan Lentil Chilli

And  then make sweets. Still in sweatpants.

Fruit Leather
White Buttercream and Chocolate Ganache
Triple Layer Carrot Cake

And then watch Glee, the Kardashians and New Girl on the DVR. Shockingly, in sweatpants.

The end.
