Back From the Beach

And from officiating my sister-in-law's beautiful wedding on Cinco de Mayo. So much great food(here's me on number three of what turned into six dozen of VWaV's Edamame Samosas with Coconut Mint Chutney....they were a HUGE hit and devoured well before the omni food. yay!)

and wonderful people, I can't wait to share it all, once someone emails me pictures as I was entirely too busy to take any! ;)


And what's a girl to do when she gets home and finds herself in the midst of unpacking what seems to be her entire pantry (amazing, the things you bring when you know you'll be doing a whole lot of vegan cooking while away) and has no perishables in the house?It's Road's End Organics Shells & Chreese! After a few tries, this stuff has totally grown on me and now I love it as a quick fix in a pinch.
I add extra soy milk and nutritional yeast and frozen organic PEAS! to mine.
While I'd rather make my own..sometimes the kitchen's just not stocked for it (or anything else, for that matter) and this made a fine substitute when I looked up and realized it was dinner time with no dinner fixins in the house!


And I can't not mention these, as I've been living off of them in the midst of all the wedding planning chaos of the last couple weeks
I've a new-found love for Tofurkey slices (my favorite is the pepper version but i'll take plain if they don't have it). I've been enjoying them in wraps and pitas with green leaf lettuce, red onion, tomato, sometimes cukes, and a bit of Vegannaise. A quick, easy, tasty lunch or dinner. Last night I paired it with some of the amazingly sweet strawberries I picked up on our way home.I couldn't keep CJ away from then while snapping a pic, even he thought they looked and smelled yummy!

I have an old post or two I never got up, a recipe, and the trip update all to be posted soon. I still have to update my links and clean up the blog once I feel settled back into the house, but I wanted to say hi and let you all know I can't wait to start catching up on all of your blogs and see what fine creations you've got up that I'm sure to be inspired by!

Sometimes you just need a quick fix, and there's nothing wrong with that! I've never seen the Road's End stuff around here, but I would surely snap up a box for myself if I could. Can't wait to hear all about the wedding!

You made 6 dozen samosas….wow!!! Looking forward to hearing more about the wedding. That macaroni cheese looks pretty yummy for coming out of a packet…

I must admit, I love tofurky. Some don't, but it's so convenient and pretty darn tasty. I'm impressed that you made samosas and officiated!

Whoa, the filling in that bowl looks like it would make a billion samosas! Haha. I LOVE putting peas in pasta, good choice!

Judy said...

Those samosas sound heavenly. And how did you get such a great shot of you making them?

I had some super sweet organic strawberries last week, and oh my. There really is nothing like them.

I love Tofurkey slices!! Unfortunately, I don't get to buy them too often, as they are fairly expensive for my budget, but they are delicious nonetheless!

Dori said...

It has been forever since I have made pasta, esp mac and cheese but when I used to make it frequently I added peas. I have never seen the roads end stuff here either. You really had quite the production setup for making all those samosas, glad they were liked so well.
