Hi guys. Still kind of nomadic this past week. But here's what I've got for you:
Well, so, one day G and I attempted to make some sort of eggplant parmesan? I think? I had like nine breakdowns during the making, so my memory is pretty shot on this. This is way less pretty than Jes's. This is just broiled eggplant with some rice milk/cornstarch/panko breading. We melted VeganRella on top of it, steamed some broccoli and boiled some pasta. Newman's Own sauce. I believe both of these plates are G's - I went heavy on the eggplant, less so on the pasta.
Breakfasts have been homemade granola bars or delicious, delicious honeycrisp apples.
Dinners have been sporadic, but mostly more miso:
This one with shiitake mushrooms, spinach, rice noodles, carrot, sesame seeds, miso, anise seeds.
Lunches are the most varied. Whole Foods is getting a lot of business from me recently.
Also a treat:
So, as I'm sure you all know, MoFo is upon us. I will probably not post again until then so I'll tell you now about what I HOPE to blog about in October (I say "hope" because these last two weeks have shown that I often don't come home, or if I do, it's to late too cook PLUS I am still feeling sort of pushed out of the kitchen with these other people in the apartment, so here's to PLANS)
For this year's theme, I will be showing you what New York City has to
offer vegans. We are not the vegan mecca of Portland but we are no
Either I'll be moving out of NY at some point and regret not taking in
what the city has to offer, or I'll just enjoy my month in the gorgeous
NY autumn. Keeping busy is part of my plan to stay happy, as is getting out of the apartment more often. October may be
more like a photo diary except for certain posts because we know how
hard it is to keep up with everyone during MoFo. I'd like to stop yakkin
so much and read everything (ok, as much as I can) of what YOU guys have
There seems to be an interest in my doings around New York (for whatever reason - I'm usually pretty boring) so I'll be showing you meals from veg
restaurants around the city, tours of my favorite local health food
stores and farmers' markets, hopefully cooking food of some of the many
nationalities that the city is home to, and eating or making typically
New York food - the bagels, the pizza, gefilte fish (okay, maybe not
Yeah? Any requests? Sometimes I feel like you all know New York better than I do because as a native, I stick to my very limited routine.
Okay! See you next month!
