Vegan Eats: Gazpacho With a Lit Virgin Bloody Mary

August 27 2020

Homemade gazpacho. That was good!

October 10 2020

My virgin Bloody Mary is lit! 🔥😂 It’s been since last December or January since we’ve been to visit The Romano Duo. Frank always makes me one of these when we visit. I finally got tired of waiting until we can visit again, so I made my own. 😋 Plus, we just got these cool Halloween lights today! Now to figure out where to use them!

Vegan Eats: Who Remembers Funyuns and Coconut Jerky

July 20 2020

Who remembers Funyuns? They were one of my favorite junk foods growing up. To me, these Vegan Rob’s Brussel Sprout Puffs taste like Funyuns. It absolutely doesn’t taste like Brussels sprout. Ha! I like all of the flavors, but this one is my favorite. Bonus: I like the ingredients, too!

When you post about one of your vegan finds and a friend mails you bunches of said find! Plus, some yummy CBD tea. Thanks, Kimberly!!

S’mores with Crispy Crunchy Okra and Some Other Stuff

July 14 2020

S’mores!

July 16 2020

I felt like having this for lunch today. So, I did. Ha! Crispy crunchy okra, Miyoko’s cultured farmhouse “cheddar”, tomatoes with Himalayan pink salt and pepper, kalamata olives, marinated artichoke quarters, pugliese artisan bread with milkadamia buttery spread, sweet cherries, truffle Marcona almonds, and sweet & spicy pecans …. Can you tell I had just gotten back from grocery shopping? This was incredibly satisfying.

S’mores With Comfort Food

July 5 2020

It was a s’mores kinda afternoon. So good. What a delicious treat.

July 10 2020

This afternoon called for comfort food. Totally tomato soup courtesy of Great Full Gardens South Meadows Reno. Grilled cheese made by me, with Ciabatta and Violife smoked provolone slices. Then a nice rest on the couch. Ahhhhh …

Mac n Cheese and Coconut Jerky With Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms and Peruvian Mocha Crunch

June 29 2020

Homemade macaroni & “cheese”, with sautéed crimini mushrooms, topped with shredded Daiya.

July 1 2020

Another delicious find to share with you. This stuff is so good, I accidentally ate nearly the entire bag at once. Made using the green coconut meat left over from coconuts used for packaging coconut water. Perfect!

July 2 2020

This was so pretty, I had to take a photo. Food art!! Courtesy of Great Full Gardens = Stuffed portobello mushroom, with a side of their refried beans, topped with cashew cheese. All I did was add a small salad.

July 4 2020

Another of my favorites. Coconut Bliss Peruvian Mocha Crunch. So, so good.

Vegan Eats: Cocomels With Panang Curry Alongside Maters and Beans

June 22 2020

Another delicious find to share with you … Perfect!

June 23 2020

I made panang curry for myself last night. Took me a while to find a vegan panang curry paste. It’s really good! However, there’s something missing. Doesn’t have any heat to it. Had to buy a package of 6, so I’ve got plenty to experiment with.

June 27 2020

My kind of breakfast. So much satisfying. When I have fresh, good-tasting tomatoes (or maters, as my mammaw called them), I’ll have those instead of fresh fruit. Deeply pleasing.

The Smell of Relief with Pasta Salad Followed by Chocolate Bliss

May 4 2020

The smell of freshly sliced English cucumber. Heavenly, swoon worthy.

May 5 2020

Those cucumbers yesterday were chopped and added to this giant bowl of pasta salad. I’m down to the soft, semi-soft food with these teeth.

Last night I stuck my phone halfway in my mouth and took a picture of just one offending tooth. Sent to the dentist this morning with a message that I’m running out of spots to chew food and I feel awful, and asked if I could get in before the 12th. Guess the picture and fact that I can barely eat did the trick. I’m going in tomorrow morning.

Don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to go to the dentist!!

Coconut Bliss – Chocolate Hazelnut Decadence. My taste buds approve.

Vegan Eats: Giant Salad With Sunflower Seed Butter Cups

April 28 2020

Giant salad for dinner. Good grief. That was good!

I had fun making it. Made my own butter garlic croutons. It had garbanzo beans, white beans, cauliflower, spanish and kalamato olives, artichoke hearts, arugula and romaine lettuce, cashews, raisins, shredded coconut, Daiya cheese shreds, sweet and hot jalapeno, and a kale, cashew, basil pesto.

May 2 2020

With the coffee this morning.

As a child and teen my absolute favorite candy was Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I stopped eating food with artificial ingredients over 12 years ago and it was such a delight to come across these. They are decadent!!
