I decided to make the roasted red pepper mac & cheese (for those without the cookbook, the recipe can be found online here); this was my first time soaking cashews. The sauce turned out OK (I probably should have soaked the cashews longer than the two hours and/or blended them for longer), but I don't know, it wasn't as awesome as I'd hoped it would be. I'll try the recipe again sometime, soaking the cashews overnight and blending for longer and seeing if that helps.
I mixed the leftovers with corn and baked them with breadcrumbs and garlic salt and pepper on top.
Other random stuff I've had since Vegan MoFo: Hot dogs with fries and corn...
...baked ziti with mixed vegetables, spaghetti sauce, mozzarella and cheddar Daiya, and breadcrumbs...
...apples with harvest pumpkin hummus from the farmers' market (YUM!)...
...and a simple pasta with garlic bread.
I also tried a second recipe from Isa Does It: the
I added some frozen mixed vegetables to the leftovers. YUM and YUM!

I've also been trying out a bunch of Amy's canned organic soups because they've been on sale. I took pictures for all of them, except as it turns out, my favorite, which was the lentil soup. It was so good & I'm definitely going to get it again, though I'd also like to make it myself sometime!
Fire Roasted Southwestern Vegetable Soup (good, but a bit too spicy for me)
|with added croutons|
Minestrone Soup (good; cute noodle shapes)
Lentil Vegetable Soup (really good; my second favorite to the plain lentil soup)
Tuscan Bean & Rice Soup (pretty good overall)
Hearty French Country Vegetable Soup (I was a bit unsure of this one because it had mushrooms, but it was actually pretty good)
In other news, I'm looking forward to Halloween this Friday! And then on Saturday, I begin my fifth NaNoWriMo! So that will keep me busy; I'll share my writing stats here as I did last year.
And last but not least, Buttons and Leela have been enjoying the sun.
