Recent Fun Foods

Hi everyone! This post is a bit of a random one, just some recent fun foods. For a family holiday party last weekend, I made vegan pigs in blankets using Tofurky hot dogs. They were really good! 


On the way back from the party, we stopped at Vegan Treats and I picked out one of their pretty holiday desserts -- the butter pecan "ice cream" cake. I'm guessing the ice cream was in quotes because there wasn't actually ice cream in it, but it was still good!






Last night, Zach put together a quick dinner for us and picked a new Kashi bowl to try: the sweet potato quinoa bowl. It was pretty good; he also made Gardein crispy chick'n sliders (we added 1/4 of a slice of Chao tomato cayenne cheese to each) and waffle fries to go with it.




This morning, we had waffles and I added some of the rum raisin ice cream I made during Vegan MoFo to mine. It made a super tasty ice cream waffle sandwich, with strawberry syrup on top! (Thanks to vegan.in.brighton for the suggestion to pair ice cream and waffles!)






Last week's post included an awkward encounter between Buttons and Leela. This week, I got some funny photos of Daisy being very "not sure if want" when Cringer flumped down on her for cuddles.



Daisy: "No, I'm quite sure. Do not want."

Bonus photo of Daisy with a very dramatic expression after hearing a noise outside...



...and Cringer a few days later looking like someone tried to put a cat together but didn't quite know where all the pieces should go...



Peace. :)

  1. That cake is too adorable! Also, I was *just* thinking about making pigs in a blanket after trying Annie's crescent rolls. They're super delicious and would be perfect wrapped around some tofurky. Or even just tofu pups because I'm gross and love those haha

  2. Daisy's face is one of great concern. So cute!
    How odd that they had ice cream in the name of that cake, even in quotes, if it wasn't an actual ice cream cake. Still, at least tasty. :)

  4. You can buy pigs in blankets here but they are vegan sausages wrapped in vegan bacon. I love the crescent roll idea. Happy holidays Julie x
