Hey ya!

Hey guys.  Long time, no blog.  Uni, work, you know the drill…..
Anyway, I was inspired by a recent South Park episode to make Tofu “fish” Fingers (I believe you call them Fish Sticks in the US).  Recipe came from the Vegan Lunchbox cookbook (finally bought it!).  Pretty tasty!

'fish' sticks -2
I’ll resist the urge to make a gay vegan fish joke.
I discovered chipotles at the Indian grocer the other week (month?) and so I made tamales (using aluminium foil instead of corn husks).  Not bad….  They’re really dense!!!
And, of course, I’ve been sewing….

Reverse bag Exams are coming up, so I’ve been attempting to start study (they start on June 15, so hopefully I can cram it all in – for some unknown reason they’re ALL open book!!).
VeganAmy out.

Welcome back!

I love everything about this post! Those fish sticks look so perfect and crispy, YUM! And what a clever idea for those tamales, very impressive.

I am always in awe of people who can sew and make things with their own hands. I love the colors!

I love the colours too! Thanks for visiting (after me being lazy for sooooooooooooooooooo long).

That bag looks fantastic, Amy! Come to Sydney and teach me how to use the sewing machine I borrowed a year ago and haven't used!

Pale blue and chocolate brown has to be one of the best color combinations ever.

P.S. Tamales are the best! I still haven't made my own . . . must solve this problem!

Theresa said...

Ooh, tamales and fish sticks! And as always, I am majorly impressed with your sewing projects. Good luck with exams!!

Amy said...

I've been thinking way too much about sewing, so I might do a 'how to sew a bag' blog in the holidays. I'm also making fish (st)dicks this week. (tee hee)
