We ended up having a Viva Vegan themed night. Granted, I probably should have made more food but we have been feeling a bit under the weather so we didn’t want to eat too much anyways. I ended up making Arepas with Sexy Avocado Tempeh Filling and Coconut Tres Leches Cake. Surprisingly, I really liked the Arepas. I didn’t think I would because I am not that big of a fan of Tempeh but the recipe was actually really good and Mike also liked it. The Coconut Tres Leches Cake was also a big hit. I wasn’t too sure about the topping, but tasting everything together, it worked perfectly. Mike actually liked it too, which is very surprising since he doesn’t like the texture of coconut. He said that since I used shredded unsweetened that it was okay because the bits were small enough that it wasn’t off putting. I have also witness him eat a couple of slices, so I know that he was telling me the truth. For the flavorings of the cake and topping, I played it safe and just used vanilla.
…was pretty uneventful. I worked that night, so I just had leftovers of Stuffed Peppers. I almost caved and had pizza when I got home, but I battled thru and grabbed an apple and some peanut butter for a snack.
I have no witty banter or anything to leave you with today. I have been sick for a few days and it is taking its toll on me. I keep thinking I will be able to do my 5k training and then my body betrays me, so I am trying to get better. Because of the sickness going around the house, I called Mike while he was at work and requested Pho. The closest place is near Mike’s work which is 30 minutes from the house. So he agreed to pick me up Vegetarian Pho, Vegetarian Spring Rolls and Eggrolls. I did check the ingredients in everything and it all listed ingredients that were Vegan, no animal products here. So that made me very happy. Everything was very good, and actually helped me battle thru this insane cold.
My French Bread post will have to wait until next Tuesdays since I was unable to post this until Wednesday.
