I am still living off of the Potato and Kale Soup with Sizzling Chorizo. It is going to last me a few more days 🙂
I did happen to go into the freezer and take out just ONE Banana-Walnut Chocolate Chip Muffin. Do you know how hard it is to only grab one. I was actually very surprised with my self control.
Earlier in the week I was suppose to make French Bread for Tuesdays with Dorie, but I was having some issues finding compressed yeast. Well I never found it so I ended up making the bread today. I will post more about it on day 23, since rules state that I need to actually post on a Tuesday. But let me just say, the bread is VEGAN and yummy.
YAY, the husband is home. He actually came in late on Day 18, but to celebrate I made Sinfully Wholesome Waffles (Isa Does It) for breakfast. They made everyone’s tummies very happy.
Side note because I like to put a buttered flavored product on my waffles, I have found that I really like the flavor of Earth Balances Soy Garden Buttery Spread. Which is funny because I don’t really like the flavor of soy that much. I stopped using soy milk in baked goods just because of that. But I find that I prefer this spread over the Vegan Buttery Sticks and the Original Buttery Spread. I guess you find things that surprise you every day.
Mike turns to me and asks if I am making anything special for dinner, or have anything planned. I have been exhausted the past few days and I think one of the girls got me sick. So I have been stuck in that limbo phase of not being full blown sick, but you know it is coming and you are just fall down tired. Needless to say, I spent most of the day asleep when I wasn’t entertaining the girls.
I turned to Mike and informed him that there were Quinoa and Black Bean Stuffed Peppers (Vegan with a Vengeance) in the freezer and that would just be fine with me. So, we defrosted them a bit in the microwave and them slapped them into a 350 degrees Fahrenheit oven for about 1 hour. They turned out great and I was informed that if I wanted to make that again that I could. It makes me feel good when I get approval on Vegan meals from the family, and I think Mike appreciates it that he is not doing the cooking.
I am finding being Vegan getting easier and easier each day. I really don’t crave non-vegan items. But I am interested in trying the Vegan Pizza at Z-Pizza, so that might happen for my last week.
Oh, I will get to visit a Vegan/Vegetarian Restaurant next week too. So I am looking forward to trying some new things that I haven’t had 🙂
More than likely I am going to extend this vegan adventure into October and try to stick with it the best that I can.
