I really needed several days to recover from those bachelorette shenanigans. I obviously can’t party like I used to, like in my high school or college days. Sigh!
Anyways, after boring you to death with my repetitive breakfasts week after week, I finally decided to try something new last Sunday: pancakes! Vegan apple cinnamon pancakes from the book Peas and Thank You, to be exact. I had mine with some soy yogurt and apple sauce on the side. They were delicious! And even my husband liked them! We inhaled the entire batch, and were full for several hours. You totally can’t tell that they are vegan and contain no eggs. Amazing! Making pancakes is a little time-consuming, but I will definitely make them again, on a leisurely Sunday.
Lunch was leftovers from the night before: vegan jigae with brown rice. One day I need to post the recipe of this all-time family favorite, but I always just wing it, and it does taste a little different each time. Bad blogger, I know!
I wanted to bake a sweet treat for my husband and I, to munch on during the week, and when I found a pack of frozen chestnuts at Saturday’s shopping trip, I spontaneously decided to make a batch of sticky rice cake. I made a vegan version by using a mix of soy and coconut milk. I’m afraid there were some typos in my recipe, as the batter was way too thin at first. I simply added more flour until the consistency was right, but I guess I need to revise the recipe again. They were delicious, though, and I had devoured my portion (about two-thirds of the batch were given to my husband), by Monday night. Ahem.
Last week I had bought a big container of potato salad at our local Aldi. I was feeling lazy and decided to just give it a try. It was pretty good, actually. Did I mention that it was a two lbs container? It took me a few days, but in the end I did finish it all. For Sunday’s dinner I also made a batch of pan-fried tofu, bulgogi style. I mixed up a quick sauce and let the tofu soak up all the goodness for a few hours in the fridge, than pan-fried them until crispy. I even measured the ingredients and took notes, so there might be a recipe coming soon.
Another very random day, food-wise. I’ll try to post a few recipes of the things I eat regularly. This is what bloggers do, right? But probably after that madness called September is over. Deep breath!
What dish could you or do you eat all the time? Me: fried rice!
