Some Delicious Meals This Week

Hi everyone! I still have some frozen leftovers from Vegan Month of Food, so I’ve been trying to work through them. On Monday, I made some mac & cheese using the last of the nacho sauce from the loaded potatoes and adding some coconut bacon (leftover from the macaroni with butternut squash and avocado). It was really good! 


Then on Wednesday, my sister and I went to Sutao Cafe! We got a lot of great food; here are our first plates and soups!

And on Thursday, I made a grilled cheese sandwich using Violife cheddar; it was so good, and it’s now my favorite vegan cheese for grilled cheese! 



Here’s Rogue being a cutie in her tunnel; she loves running through it, especially when she’s hunting her pink flamingo toy. 


She’s still playing a bit rough with Daisy (and Daisy won’t stand up to her like the others do), so we’re continuing to supervise their interactions and intervening when necessary (ex: Rogue has Daisy pinned and after a couple play bites, Daisy squeaks to be let go, but Rogue ignores her and keeps biting). Daisy seems to be genuinely interested in playing with her, so were hopeful that they will become friends once Rogue learns to respect when Daisys had enough. Rogue continues to test Cringer’s boundaries by chasing her but backs off when she hisses; the times she’s approached Cringer calmly, they’ve interacted smoothly. Leela grumbles when she sees Rogue, and Rogue seems to get the message (it probably helps that Leela is the biggest cat, haha).

Peace. :)

    1. The cheddar is the only one I've tried so far, but I am definitely a fan!
      She really is, and I hope so, too! :)

  2. Yes! Use it up; make room for more!

    Where do you find Violife? I thought it was just in the UK.

    1. Yes, exactly, haha!
      I got this Violife at a Whole Foods Market (which normally I avoid, but my sister had a gift card to use, so we got ourselves some treats). The next day, I found it (as well as the Violife cream cheese) in stock at our local health food store Kimberton Whole Foods (not associated with Whole Foods Market lol), so that's where I'll be getting it in the future! :)

    1. Thanks, Sarah! I hope more Violife starts showing up around here; I still haven't seen their feta, and I really want to try those spinach feta pinwheels you'd made! :)

  4. Rogue by name, rogue by nature? ;) Hopefully everyone's boundaries will be acknowledged and respected soon!

    1. It definitely seems to be the case, haha! Rogue is making progress, slowly but surely; she's still playing too rough, but she and Daisy sat together and shared the window for a bit of bird-watching at one point, and it was so sweet! :)
