August is here and it is as hot as hell. It is 107F here today and it is supposed to be 108F tomorrow. Ugh. We go to the park early in the morning so the boys can play outdoors a bit without melting. We are having a drought here. It is just awful. I am so ready for Fall and Winter. Send rain please.
We have been cooking as usual. Onward through the heat. The other day for lunch I made some chipotle pesto and hummus. It was so tasty. A local coffee shop here makes an amazing chipotle pesto and this was my attempt in replicating it. Delicious!
I also attempted to replicate another meal they make. They make zucchini migas with eggs. I made a vegan version. This was hands down, the best migas ever! I also made tempeh bacon. It was super tasty as well. I served this along with our blueberry oat pancake recipe. Mmm mmm.
The other evening I mde a red curry vegetable stirfry with coconut milk. Such goodness.
Josh cooked dinner one evening for us. He made a simple ziti with homemade pepperoni. It was very tasty. Yay Josh!
As I mentioned it is very hot here, so we decided to eat sushi last week. Veggie sushi is delicious.
We go to the library once a week. When we go, I always check out the cookbook section to find cookbooks with recipes from other countries. Last week I checked out a Chinese cookbook and veganized a General Tso’s recipe. It was good.
Last but not least, I made us Chana Masala. It is a simple recipe, but very tasty. I served it with a side of roasted cauliflower. That is one of our favorite ways to eat cauliflower.
Well, I am off to make some tortillas and mash some pinto beans for refried beans. Tonite we are having lentil tacos with all the fixin’s. Hope you have a lovely Monday. Stay cool.
peas and love….
