The challenge continues…..
As I mentioned in a previous post, we were invited to participate in the ‘La Dolce Vegan Challenge’. The Vegan Culinary Institute is hosting it. Check them out: http://www.vegan-culinary-institute.com/ . I started a section on the blog page just for the challenge. I have decided to move the section to our main page. I realized on the other section, it is hard to leave comments. I will also post about any other food or happenings going on as well.
Today is Day 8 of the challenge. Our assignment was the recipe, ‘Baby Spinach and Apple Salad with Sweet Red Wine Vinaigrette. The salad was delicious. The only change I made was subbing sunflower seeds in place of the pine nuts. I served it with a side of baked tofu. Our little guys even enjoyed the salad.
Yesterday since our assignment was a dessert for the LDV Challenge, I made us sweet potato, black bean enchilada casserole. It was amazing. I had originally planned to make enchiladas, but the tortillas fell apart when I was warming them in the oven. I also made a homemade tomatillo sauce and topped it with some leftover Daiya.
I was thinking about this today. We haven’t been out to eat in a very long time. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that I love to cook, I also like to save money and when there has been a time we have gone out to eat and the meal has been a bust, I am annoyed and look at the bill and realize the money I spent at the restaurant could have gone towards half a week of groceries or to pay the gas, etc. I know there are good places around here, we just haven’t really discovered them.
Well I am off to get the little guys ready for bed. Boogie started a private Waldorf homeschool. He goes twice a week and absolutely loves it. His teacher is amazing. We are so happy we found it.
Hope you have a lovely evening.
peas and love….
