A journey of cooking vegan food for my family.

We want the funk!!!!

Well not really.  You know how you just feel like you are in a funk or a slump?  Seriously, like you are in a rut that you can’t get out of?  I have felt that way for the past few days.  Hence, the lack of post.  I am still cooking, and finishing up the cook-through of Vegan on the Cheap.  I just have felt like a hermit or a turtle wanting to hide in its shell and float away.  It could be a full moon, the alignment of the planets, who knows.  Hopefully it will pass soon.  I did want to post something.  So, of course it will be about food and my cute little darling boys.  I promise I will post about Vegan on the Cheap very soon. I just don’t feel much like typing a long post today.  My sincere apologies.

The other day there was a butternut squash in our CSA that needed to be eaten.  I love butternut squash and I especially love it in this recipe I created:  Butternut Squash Gnocci with Sage “Butter”.  It was so tasty. I served it with a side of roasted broccoli.

Next I made a simple mushroom pasta dish.  It had sweet peas in it with a simple gravy sauce.  The boys loved it.  This made me happy because most children under the age of 5 will not touch mushrooms with a 10 foot pole.  The dish was very easy to make and quite tasty.

Over the weekend, I wanted some Southern fried goodness.  Not the healthiest dish, but darn tasty.  Plus we had some okra in the garden and in our CSA box that needs to be eaten.  I made chickpea cutlets, mashed potatoes with gravy, and fried okra.  Josh said the potatoes were the creamiest and best potatoes he had ever tasted.  I told him my secret ingredient.  He said, “wow”. 😉 

One of the best recipes created this week in our humble kitchen was a recipe called Coconut Mint Chocolate Pudding.  Man oh man was it perfection in a cup.  It was so good.  And homemade pudding is so much better than the store bought.  As well as cheaper and there are no preservatives.  It was a little taste of heaven.

Last night I created a recipe we really enjoyed.  It was a Curried Eggplant Casserole.  It was so tasty.  We had some eggplant from our CSA box and I didn’t feel much like making an Italian eggplant dish.  So, I decided to go curry. I love curry and you can never go wrong with curry in my book.

Yesterday we took the boys to the local university to the science center.  They had a lovely prehistoric display.  Little Bear is obsessed with dinosaurs and big brother is pretty fond of them too.  It was a great display and very educational. 

I am off to make some roasted acorn squash soup and some muffins for Josh’s work.  Hope you have a lovely Monday.

peas and love….

    rejoining coop would snap you out of your funk I’m sure! We are down to 2 families (ours and Claire’s) so we’re on hold. Let me know if you’d consider it. We’re both open to just having 3 instead of 4 also.

  2. Well, Krys, for someone who’s feeling in a bit of a rut, you’re doing some pretty great cooking! 🙂 Everything looks delicious, as usual. 🙂 And your family photos are very sweet, as usual.:) Hope you’re feeling chirpier soon…

  3. Hi Krys, sorry you’re feeling down 😦 I tend to go through phases of feeling like superwoman and then feeling completely hopeless – it ebbs and flows. Hope you feel more like yourself soon! I have to ask: what’s your mashed potato secret ingredient? Very intrigued! And that gnocchi look delicious – I have half a butternut squash in the fridge but that’s already earmarked for a curry!

  4. Thanks for taking the time and effort to post. I am in a rut of my own right now, so it helps to know that others sometimes experience the same thing.

    Your food looks delicious. Thanks to you I purchased Vegan on the Cheap and can’t wait to try a few recipes.

  5. Sounds like you’re coming up with great dishes! That gnocchi sounds excellent.

  6. Being stuck in a rut sucks! I hope you feel like your happy self soon! 🙂

    Your food looks awesome, as always. I want that squash gnocchi!! And we both made coconut mint chocolate desserts!

  7. The chickpea cutlets/mashed potatoes/fried okra meal… jealous, very jealous 🙂

  8. Hope you feel better soon. I am impressed that you make such beautiful dishes when in a funk. We just have sandwiches and oatmeal!

    So what’s the secret ingredient? Also, I hope you will be publishing that gnocchi recipe. I love gnocchi!

  9. hello again. do you have a recipe for the chocolate mint pudding? It looks delicious! Is it from Vegan on the Cheap?

  12. If folks simply bothered to learn some necessary marketing techniques and psychological science then internet marketing and search marketong would
    be a whole lot easier and they might ultimately save moolah by possibly doing it on their own or finding a inexpensive but experienced sourtce to complete it
    for them.

  13. Helpful information. Fortunate me I found your web site accidentally, and
    I’m stunned why this twist of fate didn’t came about earlier!
    I bookmarked it.
