Whoops indeed. I’ve been pretty busy lately and neglecting the blog a bit. This is the time of year where I start mapping out next year’s schooling plans so most of my computer time has been spent doing that.
First up, many happy returns to Mister Nice Guy’s Bake Shop! I tried their maple facon bun, yummm. We also got a free mini cupcake to celebrate the happy birthday. Here’s to many more birthdays!
Mini pumpkin pies and pecan pies!
I have a new toy! Yay for credit card reward points. And blu tack on the walls to hold up recipe printouts:
One of Arthur’s favourite meals is Dreena Burton’s BBQ Sunflower Tofu. Yes, there’s a lack of vegetables. He drinks them instead (but don’t tell him. I just call it ‘juice’):
I picked up this packet of mac and cheese from Bed and Broccoli’s stall at World Vegan Day. My mac and cheeze attempts have always been a little mehhh but this was nice. I wish the rest of the family would eat mac and cheeze:
My mum made yemista (stuffed Greek vegetables) with roast potatoes:
I made some chocolate sweet potato brownies:
Late night munchies: refried beans in tortillas cooked in the frying pan. I really don’t like canned refried beans:
Arthur usually asks for porridge (oatmeal) with a little golden syrup:
I went to Lord of the Fries and took this bad picture:
I opted for some vegan mayo sauce on the fries. Whenever I get a sauce I think nope never again (I don’t like too much sauce) but when I get plain fries, I always wish I got a sauce. WHAT TO DO:
Mama’s making Kantong with frozen vegetables. I have to say it, I really dislike the taste of frozen vegetables. Do you think they have that frozen-veggies taste? Anyway, I used some mock duck and soy nuggets with a packet of Kantong. It was okay but those packet sauces have a fair bit of sugar:
Some satay buns I bought from Global Green Vegetarian Food Mart:
A can of gigantes (large beans, Greek style). This photo is awfully red but I don’t think there’s any red food colouring involved:
I made a Thai style curry using some soy slices. The slices come dried and you have to rehydrate them. These were awful and had a really strong soy milk taste. I mean, obviously, they’d taste like soy, being soy. But I don’t like the taste of soy milk in anything other than my cornflakes. I don’t want my Thai curries tasting like soy milk. The soy nuggets I use (in the picture above somewhere) don’t have the soy milk taste:
Honest, we eat fruit and vegetables and healthy stuff. I just forget to take photos of those!
