It's not so bad, really. Most of the horrible weather went juuuust to the west, north, and south of us. We'll be in the clear in the few days. It's certainly been strange weather around here lately, though.
Dinner tonight was amazing, so I thought I'd share:
For a delicious quick weeknight meal, do the following: (figure out your own measurements!)
fry up some cubed veggie tempeh in oil, and add a generous amount of tamari, then sprinkle some sesame seeds on top to roast.
in a large bowl, place rice noodles - then pour hot water over the top and wait ten minutes before draining (we also cooked whole wheat spaghetti but this turned out to be unecessary).
for 4 min. or so, steam frozen (or fresh, we had frozen) broccoli florets and fresh chopped carrots in water that's been heated to boiling and turned off. drain.
to a large bowl, add chopped red pepper and scallions.
in a saucepan, heat up a few large spoonfuls of peanut butter, some vegetable broth, some more tamari, and add a chopped red chili pepper and a chopped helping (generous) of fresh ginger.
add the tempeh mixture to the sauce and stir it into the bowl with the broccoli and carrots. then add a whole bunch of fresh chopped spinach. mix with tongs and serve in bowls.
YUMMMM!!!!! It made a huge portion of food ... and it used mainly pantry staples (I try and always have on hand ginger, carrots, broccoli, and fresh greens, for example).
then go to yin yoga class like i did, come home and make this:
vanilla hemp milk
vanilla soy yogurt
two leftover homemade chocolate chip cookies
two large spoonfuls of flax seeds
and maybe i'd add some crushed ice next time to make it colder. sorry i don't have a picture ... i downed it too fast! but aren't my cookies from 1,000 vegan recipes pretty? umm yeah ... they are also gone!
here are the vegan chili dogs with homemade baked fries. and bubbies pickles. this was awesome! sorry for the poor lighting in the photo.
