Two Vegan Boys Weblog

A journey of cooking vegan food for my family.

Bah humbug!

Tis’ the season for colds and flu.  A wicked cough has been running through our home. I was hoping it would skip me.  Guess what?  It didn’t.  Right now I have a big pot of 15 bean soup vegetable soup cooking.  Hopefully that will help.  Needless to say, I have been very unproductive today.  The boys are getting more PBS today than usual.  But PBS is educational, so I won’t complain to much.

How as your weekend?  I baked, alot.  A friend asked me to make cupcakes and a cake for a baby celebration for one of our friend’s who is expecting a baby next month. I was happy to oblige.  I made 4 dozen cupcakes (1 dozen gluten-free chocolate, 2 dozen vanilla, 1 dozen, chocolate).  I also made a super cute cake.

I told you elephants were vegan. 🙂

Saturday night we made tacos.  I wanted to do something easy because I was spent.  Josh made some homemade tortillas and we had beans and salsa in the fridge as well as an avocado. I found some taco filling in the freezer I had made a while back. Josh also roasted some potatoes to accompany the tacos.  Great job, honey!  They were delicious!

Friday night was our usual pizza night.  I made a BBQ ChickUN pizza for us and a Daiya cheese pizza for the boys.  They loved the homemade marinara.  Thursday, Josh came home early from work feeling under the weather.  I made a big pot of chickUN and dumplin’s vegetable soup.  It hit the spot and the boys loved it. 

Sunday night I made burgers.   I saw on my friend Vic’s blog, they had made burgers recently.  Hooray for veggie burgers.  Delicious and cruelty free!  I also made the muenster cheese recipe from ‘The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook’.  It was tasty.  The burgers were served with oven roasted sweet potato fries.

Well, I am off to drink some hot lemon tea and take a nap.  Hope you each have a lovely Tuesday.

peas and love….
