Vegan MoFo Day 31: Halloween Enchiladas

Well, I didn’t quite get to post every day this month, but I did post way more than last year or the year before. I posted 28 out of 31 days, and I’m pretty proud of that. I’m okay, other than a little whiplash, but my car slipped on the ice this weekend, wrestled with a tree, and lost. I was feeling a little miserable, so I ended up pounding a fancy soda, half a sleeve of accidentally vegan cookies, and passing out in sugar coma on the sofa. So, I took a little... Read More

MoFo Day 28: Banana Split Ice Cream

I really needed a night off yesterday. I have a lot of deadlines at work, and put in over 50 hours this week. I could barely make myself dinner last night, and I didn’t think anyone wanted to see a bowl of reheated greens and Gardein, even though it was tasty. I did get 7 glorious hours of sleep, and almost felt like a normal person today. I’ve been thinking about the recipe for banana split cashew ice cream that Dawn posted at veg-am since I read it. Despite the plummeting... Read More

MoFo Day 26: Ella’s Wood Fired Pizza

We went to see Ani DiFranco perform at 6th & I tonight, so we decided to meet up for dinner at Ella’s Wood Fired Pizza, which has several vegan options, including lightly applied vegan cheese. I suspect it’s Daiya, which I like, but I do appreciate a light hand with it. We started off with a spinach, strawberry, and candied almond salad, which was sprinkled with coarse sugar. It sounds weird, but it was actually really good! Read More Share:Click to share on Facebook... Read More

MoFo Day 25: Pokez

Work has been kicking my butt a little lately, so I’m doing a little vacation flashback. Pok├ęz was heartily recommended when I mentioned I’d be in San Diego for a few days. I went with my sister-in-law and enjoyed this enormous platter of food. It was so inexpensive, I ordered two potato and chorizo enchiladas with rice and beans, thinking it would be just enough food. This huge platter was enough for two very filling meals. Read More Share:Click to share on Facebook... Read More

MoFo Day 24: Simple Supper

I ended up working really late, so tonight’s dinner was really quick and easy. Honestly, when it isn’t MoFo, a lot of my meals are like this. Some tofu, tempeh, seitan, or beans, and a vegetable or two. Tonight I baked some tofu marinated in mango puree, pineapple juice, ginger, coconut, tamari, garlic, and sesame oil, drizzled with Sriracha, and served alongside some sauteed kale. Not pictured are the hummus and crackers I had before, and the Tempt Vanilla and Pomegranate... Read More

MoFo Day 23: Pumpkin Spice Doughnuts

I saw these Pumpkin Spice Doughnuts on Oh She Glows a few months ago, but didn’t make them until this weekend. I had just enough pumpkin left over from my Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Ginger Muffins for a batch. I only have one mini doughnut pan, so I made the rest as holes. These little treats have a delicate crumb, and are nicely flavored with pumpkin pie spices. Don’t skip the cinnamon sugar coating! The only change I made was to use caramel flavored flax oil, because…I... Read More

MoFo Day 22: Sabai Sabai Simply Thai

We enjoyed lunch at Sabai Sabai in Germantown this afternoon. First we nibbled on crispy vegetable spring rolls Read More Share:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Read More

MoFo Day 21: Oh, Crepes!

I remember crepes being one of the few things I actually liked at iHop. They were served with lingonberry jam and powdered sugar. Then, I had crepes on my very first vacation with Carl nearly 7 years ago. We were in Paris, also a first, and I bought one from a cart. It was January, so the air was cold, but the warm, soft, and chewy crepe warmed my hands as the chocolate and banana melted into it. I like pancakes, but I love, love, love crepes, so I wonder why I’ve been vegan... Read More

MoFo Day 20: Tom Yum Takeout

I was feeling a bit awful today, spent most of the day today sleeping on the sofa, and wasn’t going to post, but I’ ve come so far and didn’t want to break my streak. I was so happy that Carl brought home this Tom Yum from En Bistro. I asked several servers, several times if the vegetarian version has any fish sauce, chicken brother, shrimp paste, or anything else that isn’t vegan, and have been assured that it is safe. I’m glad because it sure is... Read More

MoFo Day 19: Easy Yeasted Bread

It’s Wednesday, so it’s time for a recipe from Pinterest. I decided to make the Easy Little Bread Recipe I’ve been eying from 101 Cookbooks. Heidi’s blog was one of the first food blogs I read, and I continue to enjoy the way she makes simple, wholesome ingredients look and taste so good. I was really attracted to this bread because of how easy it seemed to put together. Even though I’m easily distracted, especially after a particularly long day at... Read More
