VeganMoFo a go go!!!!
Right. Now that I've got that out of my system, I'd like to introduce you to this month's VeganMoFo mascot, Steve's friend, the evil acrylic rabbit:
Actually, he was meant to be a hamster for Cam, but I'm not very good at the knitting yet! Isn't it kinda cool how he looks evil and demented at the same time? So rad......
So evil acrylic rabbit (EAR - ha it's funny because the ears are the worst part), what did I eat last night?
YMCA (which stands for Yesterday's Meal Cooked Again - my family has a penchant for stupid nicknames for things) Leek and Bean Cassoulet from Veganomicon. I'm SO going to miss leeks over summer! One thing, I always put mushrooms in this (they explode with tasty juice when you eat them), but I always wish I put more in. I could seriously live off mushrooms.
And for lunch?
We've discovered that the Trident brand Hot and Spicy Thai soup is vegan! So I fried up some soy nuggets for extra tasty goodness (warning: you'll need a tissue for hours after eating this!). Add extra coriander for a burst of fresh flavour!
Veganomicon is one of those cookbooks that I keep coming back to. I tend to make the same recipes over and over (I'm tempted to go back and count how many times I've posted this meal!). Cam's more of an explorer when it comes to food. I like the comfort of knowing dinner's going to be amazingly tasty (last week I tried a new recipe and it turned out very badly - I was heartbroken after three hours cooking). Hopefully I can kick my arse into trying new recipes this month.
I'm going to try and make brinner (breakfast for dinner) one day this month (it will have to be a weekend day). I'm definitely going to try Celine's Seitan Bacon for that one!
One day down, 30 to go!!!!
