Sorry I've not posted in awhile.

This is just a collection of photos that I had from the last couple months. I haven't posted in awhile and I have been making some awesome food, just not been taking pictures of it. Bad me. But I've borrowed my sister-in-laws camera and I'm motivated to making great food and taking awesome pictures so you've been warned. :0) These pictures are from my camera.

Sauteed portabella mushroom with olive oil and soysauce, spring mix lettuce, cucumber, carrot, Veganaise and some Gray Poupon on flat bread. My lunch the other day. (Fancy)

Extreme Closeup...mmmmm.

Asparagus from the yard! Yummy. It does look like to much Soy Garden butter but I was mixing it with angelhair pasta so I need all the juice and butter (added like 3 garlic cloves) for the noodles. I also added some broccoli and mushrooms, but forgot to take a picture of the finished product. Whoops.

When everyone was coming next door to visit Mamaw and Papaw, I made a batch of these. I made the Chickpea cutlet recipe from Veganomicon and just made them into nuggets...it was alittle time consuming but it was a huge hit.
Chickpea cutlet nuggets frying in alittle canola oil.

We made 2 sauces to dip them in. Cheezy sauce from the Veganomicon cookbook and a honey mustard sauce (Veganaise, honey substitute and Gray Poupon) We used real honey...sorry, bees.

I have an addiction to these potatoes...Trader Joes brand hash browns. I added some garlic powder, salt and fresh ground pepper....oh my. I may need an intervention.
Last but not least, I was making burritos the other day, had the soyritzo in the pan warming up and looked up in cabinet and no refried beans. I ALWAYS have refried beans in there. After a small panic I found a can of red kidney beans and put them in my small food processor, added some garlic, veggie broth (enough to make a paste), soysauce and pepper. It turned out soooooo good. It won't be the last time I make that. So incredible easy and cheap!
