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.

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

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

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!!

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.

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!!

Thomas and Camilla April 2020 Date Day

First “stop”: Lunch from Teriyaki Madness. Spicy chicken bowl for Thomas. Spicy tofu bowl for me. Eaten at The TLC Casa. 💚💚💚

Tip for vegans: Ask them to cook your dish in a wok, otherwise it is fried in the same oil as the meat dishes. They were happy to make it work so I didn’t have to order lunch from two different places.

Second stop: Washoe Lake

March 26 2020

A grilled portobello deluxe accidentally fell into my online cart at Great Full Gardens earlier today when I ordered the lunch soup. I’m so grateful it did!!! Delicious! And while we were ordering Lillian’s fries, a cheeseburger and fries accidentally got added to the order for Thomas. Made for an easy night of dinner making for me.
