for a challenge. I have started a section on this page called, “The La Dolce Vegan Challenge”. Recently, we were invited to participate in a cook through of Sarah Kramer’s book, ‘La Dolce Vegan’. We decided to give it a go. It is a great book full of recipes and remedies. The challenge starts tomorrow. You can check to see what we have made. Please stay tuned to this part of our page. I will still be posting food we make not related to the challenge as well as all the happenings in our little world. Now, onto the food.
Today is supposed to be the last of our hot days here. Thank goodness. This past Saturday and Sunday, it was 112F. That is not a typo. Tomorrow we are hopefully supposed to get rain. Fingers crossed! Last night I made a cool and light dinner, tofu lettuce wraps. They were perfection. The boys loved the tofu part and Booige loved the lettuce as well. He is our kid who enjoys raw veggies and eating them straight from the garden.
Speaking of fresh from the garden. One of our dear friend’s who lives just a few blocks away from us, is letting us use a section of her yard to garden. She started a little community garden with our family. How awesome is that?! We are so lucky to know her family. She and her husband are amazing people and they have a beautiful daughter that is the same age as Boogie. He adores her. That being said, I will soon be posting Fall garden pictures. Yippee! Happy dance. I planted seeds in little peat boxes last week. I can’t wait!
This past Sunday I made one of our favorite breakfasts, pancakes and tofu scramble. Mmm, such goodness. The leftovers are even tasty!
The other evening, I made a simple but tasty dish. It is really good and is always a hit around here. The meal was roasted hoisin eggplant and edamame fried rice. I found a hoisin sauce recipe online. It was easy to make and quite tasty.
Another easy and minimal work meal I made a few days ago was red beans and rice. I love a meal you can just throw in the crockpot and walk away. I added some homemade seitan and kale to the dish. And made some cornbread muffins to accompany it. Tasty!
I think the meals this time around followed a trend, quick, tasty, and easy. Because, here is yet another one that follows in that category: BBQ soy curls sandwich with corn, and blackeyed peas.
Well, I am off to make breakfast for my two cutie pies. I can’t believe our big boy Boogie turns 5 this weekend. For those of you who have been longtime readers of our page, where has the time gone? Wow! Hope you have a lovely Wednesday.
peas and love….
Krys and the boys
