Recap of the Week
Next photo is simply Oil Roasted Brussels Sprouts with herbs!
I got both of these at Wegman's which are clearly marked whether or not they are vegetarian, vegan, or otherwise. Why can't every eating establishment be that obvious!?
I was able to meet up with my sister for lunch that day since I was in her neck-of-the-woods.
Not too long ago I made this Pimento Cheese. It turned out super YUMMY!
Silly me...I didn't save the recipe! I can tell you that it has Cashews, Pimentos, Nutritional Yeast, SeaClear, and more in it, tho!
I've been into more comfort and convenience foods as of late and need to throw in more grains.
I hope to do more casseroles, one-pot-meals, and thrown-together-bowls in the near future, too!
So many vegan food combos - so little time, eh!?
Last night I did this Plant-Based Cheese and once again I don't have the recipe with me. It is in need of some tweaking, first, so it might be for the best that I don't post it now but I will tell you that it had potatoes, carrots, cashews, almond milk, nutritional yeast, minced garlic and onion, and a few other little things thrown in.
It turned out ok but I felt it was missing that last little something-something.
Something else I should mention that was pretty awesome this week was that it reached 72 degrees the other day! Yes...in mid-march...in the snow belt!
Last week I stopped in at a semi-local produce market. I say semi-local because it it still about 40 minutes away from my house but since I am traveling up that way for work at least once a week now I am able to stop in and see what they have. It's also one of the few places of its kind that is open year-round in this area.
I found these Honey Tangerines on sale 2 for $1. I also found Honey Bell Oranges that you can see in the next photo. The Honey Bell Oranges were 79 cents each.
This might not sound like a deal to some of you in sunny Florida or California where citrus is plentiful but here for this time of year the price was right for me.
So these 4 items made up my lunch that day!
I'm still waiting for a semi-local restaurant to re-open. It's a vegetarian and vegan restaurant that has been under construction for well over a year. The owner is doing all the renovations himself so I understand the delay but I won't lie...it's nearly killing me! LOL
I will say I have been tempted to adopt another dog from a local shelter...his name is Tipper. I think 3 dogs is maximum capacity for our house but I will tell you that this specific dog has been 'haunting me' for WEEKS. I have been visiting him at the shelter and smuggling in treats for him.
