I’m back. Last week was sad and hard; my grandpa passed away. So this is my quick attempt at blogging catch-up.
I bring you. . .What we’re eating/What we ate:
-Last Monday I went back to an old favorite: Pinto Burgers from Everyday Happy Herbivore Cookbook.
-The thing about funerals is, you end up eating a lot. However, a lot of the food brought to us wasn’t of the vegan variety, so mom and I made Tuno Salad from That Was Vegan?, Eggless-celent Salad from Luminous Vegans, and Mock Chopped Liver from Vegetarians in Paradise (scroll all the way down). I’m still eating the mock chopped liver, it’s great on crackers, chips and sandwiches. Even my omnivore sister likes it.
-Needing some comfort food, I cooked up The Grit’s Golden Bowl (Amybites’ version).
-This week’s menu includes:
- Mexican Chowder (pg. 112, Everyday Happy Herbivore)
- Fettucini Alfredo by Chef Chloe
- BBQ Beans and Rice (another old favorite) from The McDougall Quick & Easy Cookbook
-We also ate out a couple times. Napoleon’s (we went there twice this week) in Oak Grove has a couple vegan options. Their tofu tacos are great, but avoid them if you don’t like spicy food. The Napoleon’s Bowl can be customized to be vegan. They are happy to take out and substitute ingredients as needed. However, be warned, their veggie burger has egg (Why? I don’t know. We are trying to get them to change it).
Also in Oak Grove, Taqueria El Vecino has a few different items that can be made vegan. Also, they have skinny margaritas which I love, because I can pretend like they are healthy and drink two of them.
