Yes, I've neglected you blogosphere, but it's all been for a good cause. Relaxation!
I've been doing way too many crafty things of late! I've taken up sewing (I'm working on a dress and a top at the moment) and I made little Oliver (a friend's 1yr old) a birthday mobile out of my crazy little creatures!
This was meant to be a ghost (like my purple kitchen assistant)...
Octopus (this was my favourite - it's a bit of a pain to do the legs, but it looks the best!)
Why is it that all the bunnies/hamsters I make look like deranged serial killers?
Mr Tadpole (now this was an appropriate colour to use!!!)
I didn't get a chance to get the "Oliver's view" pic. But you get the idea! Isn't it adorable? I think I'll definitely be making this again!
I think Woolworths has finally worked out that they have vegan customers! As I mentioned last time, they've increased their range of Fry's products (thank you thank you!!!). We also found a new range of Australian gourmet burgers!
Syndian make these burgers. They're pretty tasty. We found best results from cooking on the health grill (I think they'd fall apart if you did them in a frypan).
Mexican flavour was tasty (also these are pretty mushy - which was good when I was recovering from tooth surgery!):
I've also been on a bit of a pasta kick (you're really surprised, aren't you? HA!). I made some sort of mystery pasta a while ago:
Looks like some sort of bolognaise?
Continuing on my obsession with silverbeet, I made silverbeet and cashew ricotta cannelloni with extra silverbeet on the side. I want silverbeet at every meal dammit!
And....... I made gnocchi again. I seriously could eat this stuff everyday! I made a ginormous batch, so we had no less than four bags of frozen gnocchi. SOOOOOOOO tasty. I pan fried it after boiling with dairy free pesto from Mrs Flannery's. Not original but delicious! I topped with the dairy free parmesan we've been overusing for the last few months (it's like crack, but good for you?).....
This week I'm intending to try out Vegan Dad's roast to see if I can get it to work for Christmas Day. And we finally found Sweet William choc chips, so there'll definitely be cookies in the future!
Hope everyone's enjoying summer/winter. I'm seriously jealous of Teresa's trip to Melbourne!
