Random Food Post (August)

Time for another random food post! Here's some new stuff I've tried since the end of June...

Apple Pie Muffin Cookie with Raisins from Alternative Baking Company. Absolutely delicious! 




I made a lemon ginger sauce for some Gardein chicken; it was really good.



I tried the sweet potato tortilla chips from Food Should Taste Good, and they did indeed taste good.



I finally cleaned out the bread machine and used it to make bagels. The dough was so sticky and I was rushing, and so the bagels came out a bit... oddly shaped... but they still tasted good. 




I made the pizza rolls from Bake Eat Love & they were delicious! 






I used Yves veggie ground in a simple but filling pasta dish.




Alena and I took another trip to SuTao Cafe's lunch buffet to celebrate the end of her first clinical internship. We made sure to eat our fill & even remembered to try one of the soups (miso).

I got a bunch of cool food stuff from a Vegan Essentials order, and the first thing I wanted to try was the Daiya mac & cheese. Unfortunately, I wasn't that pleased with it. It just had a weird taste (and aftertaste) to me. It was a bit better heated up as leftovers the next day, but it's not something I'll get again.

And here's a lovely heated-up-in-the-microwave-even-though-the-box-says-not-to Tofutti pizza with diced Tofurky pepperoni added on top. (I had this when the oven was out of commission; thankfully it's fixed now!) 



Here's a photo set of Buttons, being very startled and confused by the sounds of the bread machine... 





"What is happening?!"


...And here are some pics I took of Leela the time she decided to climb into the (dry) tub to explore and make her silly "ah'oo" sound.

P.S. The Vegan Month of Food (Vegan MoFo) starts on September 1! I'm still figuring out what to do for some of the daily prompts, but I have ideas for most of them. Before the daily prompts were announced, I'd been planning to do another week of The Veganlist (veganized food from The Blacklist), among other weekly themes like last year. After learning of the prompts, I managed to fit The Veganlist into the week when The Blacklist's third season was going to return, and then NBC pushed the premier back a week to October 1. So, I decided to scrap the idea of a Veganlist week; instead I plan to do Veganlist days throughout the month whenever they are applicable. Day 1 of Vegan MoFo (breakfast prompt) will be one such Veganlist day, so get excited!

Peace. :)

  1. That's cool that you're incorporating the MoFo prompts into your theme! I haven't figured out posts for all of them either, but I guess we'll see how it goes.

    Ha, I had a very similar bagel experience today. Too rushed, not enough kneading, with some interesting shapes as a result. And Buttons' expressions make me laugh. :)

    (I hope I didn't flood your inbox with comments on your previous post. I tried to comment a few times using WordPress, but I don't think it got accepted until I tried the Google option.)

    1. Thanks; it looks like I'll have around 13 theme days fitting into the prompts. Yeah, some of the prompts are stumping me; I have no idea what to do for the fusion one, haha!
      Glad I'm not the only one with funny-shaped bagels! Yes, Buttons has such an expressive face; the blurry photo is the funniest to me & makes me laugh every time! :)
      (No worries; I only got one of your comments on the previous post, so it all worked out!)

  2. Wow! Two projects at once? You are a boss! My head would be spinning. I love your kitty photos, I have a huge soft spot for black cats. Happy MoFoing!
