Fruit Salad Smoothie (Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Food)

Hi everyone! June’s MiniMoFo is “fruit,” so I tried a new smoothie recipe, the fruit salad smoothie from Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Food. It was really good! The fruit in it is banana and frozen strawberries, but it also contains romaine lettuce, making it the first “green” smoothie I’ve actually liked, hehe!

Here’s Buttons resting in the kitchen...

Peace. :)

Cookies & Cream Pie (One Raw Bite)

Hi everyone! Last week I tried the Quick Cookies and Cream Coconut Pie recipe from One Raw Bite. It was so easy to make and so, so good! When Zach first saw the pie, he asked, “Where did you buy that?” I told him I’d made it, except for buying the pre-made crust; he responded that it looked really good and “artfully done,” haha! (Jennifer noted in her post that some of her family members seemed surprised she’d made it; theres definitely something special about this pie!)

Last Saturday, Zach and I went to the Chester County Pride Festival. I did this pride flag sketch after we got back...

And on Thursday, we went to the Vigil to Reunite Jonatan and Lillie. Here
s an article about it.

Here are Buttons, Cringer, and Daisy lined up in the sunshine in the attic, or as I call it at this time of year, the sauna... 

Meanwhile, Leela had the bed all to herself...

Peace. :)

May MiniMoFo: Favorite

Hi everyone! May's MiniMoFo theme is "favorite," so here are some of my favorites from this month. First up is a corn & mac bake, which I made for the potluck dinner celebrating the May 1 march & rally...

The blueberry maple syrup we got from our trip to Maine is also really good...

I ordered some nacho cheeses from Vegan Essentials; the Spicy Nacheez was amazing, and the Chipotle Nacho Nutcheese was a close second...

And finally, the new recipe I've enjoyed the most this month is the creamy mushroom pasta from My cat loves Daiya!, which I posted about here

My favorite kitty pictures are when they are hanging out together, like Cringer and Daisy here in the sunshine...

...or Leela (with her mouse) and Buttons...

Peace. :)

Cookies & Cream Mug Cake (House Vegan)

Hi everyone! The new recipe I tried this week was House Vegan’s 90 Second Vegan Cookies and Cream Mug Cake. Since I didn’t have 4 oz mugs or ramekins, I made it all in one regular mug and heated it for a bit longer in the microwave. It was fun & easy to make, and quite delicious! I kind of want to make a full-size version of this cake now, haha!

Here’s Cringer enjoying the sunshine patch in the kitchen...

Creamy Mushroom Pasta (My cat loves Daiya!)

Hi everyone! When I saw the creamy mushroom pasta on My cat loves Daiya!, I knew I’d have to give it a try, and I’m so glad I did. This recipe is absolutely perfect – I finished up the last of the leftovers for my lunch today, and I already want to make it again! Just need to get more mushrooms first!

Here’s Daisy being a cutie in the sunshine...

Peace. :)

ANZAC Biscuit Smoothie (Kittens Gone Lentil)

Hi everyone! Sorry I missed posting last week; it was quite busy! The march and rally for Un Día Sin Inmigrantes on May 1 went really well; here’s a link to an article about it: Phoenixville community members hold immigration rally. The next day, Zach and I headed out on a road trip to Maine! There wasn’t anything too exciting food-wise; we kept it simple (oatmeal, peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, random snacks, and Subway sandwiches haha), so I didn’t bother to take pictures. (I did, however, take 450+ nature photos, which I still need to sort through.) To get back into the swing of weekly blogging with a simple recipe, I tried one that Susan (Kittens Gone Lentil) shared for an ANZAC biscuit smoothie. It was easy to make & so delicious! Definitely give it a try!

Here’s Leela sleeping on the bed...

Peace. :)
