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 weeksI'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!
