Two Vegan Boys Weblog

A journey of cooking vegan food for my family.

Boy, does he love chicken….

Not eating them.  Never!  Little Bear saw chickens for the first time this past Saturday and had a fit.  By fit I mean, he was so excited he could hardly contain himself.  We went to a local, organic, vegetable farm with Boogie’s Campfire Kids group to visit.  Little Bear just stood their jabbering away in his baby voice at the chickens and laughed so hard when they would peck his fingers.  He wanted so badly to go into the chicken coop and play.  It was so freaking cute.  He kept making chicken and duck sounds at them.

Boogie loved the farm too.  He kept pulling pieces of lettuce and swiss chard from the plants in the ground and eating them.  The boys also walked around eating organic carrots.  It was really fun to watch them enjoying a small, local, organic farm.  They really liked it.

As I mentioned in my last blog post, we are sharing a CSA with a friend until our Spring garden starts producing.  By the way, the seedlings are looking great and will be able to go into the ground in a few weeks.  Last night I made a Panang chickUN curry over undon noodles.  Wowza!  This meal was amazing.  It makes me hungry just writing about it.  Yay for leftovers.  The seitan is homemade.  The veggies came from our CSA, our garden, and fresh broccoli from a friends garden.

Sunday I made pizza for the guys.  The boys wanted cheeze pizza and I made a BBQ chickUN pizza for me and Josh.  It had spinach, jalapeno, garlic, chives, pineapple, seitan, homemade BBQ sauce, cilantro, and cheddar Daiya on it.  Yum!

I also made a lovely stirfry using our CSA veggies.  It had brussel sprouts in it.  They were delicious.  Josh had not eaten brussel sprouts since he was a kid.  He always hated them, so was hesitant to eat them.  He loved it.  The stirfry had carrots, brussel sprouts, cabbage, chives, brussel sprout greens, sesame seeds, and marinated tofu over rice noodles.

We rarely eat fried food, but the other evening I made an exception.  I treated the boys to chickUN fried seitan, mashed potatoes & turnips, corn, and homemade cream gravy.  It was also our first time trying turnips.  We liked them.  So good.

Today is Dr. Suess’ birthday.  The boys and I plan to watch ‘Horton Hears a Who’ and make some cookies.  As well as play outside and tend the garden.  I forgot to mention, this past Sunday we planted four different types of potatoes.  It will be our first year growing them.  Yay!

Hope you have a lovely day.

peas and love….

Krys and the boys

  1. That is the RIGHT way to love chicken! So glad you and the boys had a good time there. 🙂

    Your meals, as always, look mouth-wateringly good! About the Brussels sprouts: so many people have only tasted them boiled to ******** and that’s why they don’t like them. You’ll have cooked them properly. It makes all the difference. Glad you liked the turnips, too!

  2. I love those giggling moments…so nice to enjoy.
