jdfunks, I almost made Singapore curry tonight and I kind of wished I did! But my ingredients were screaming for sushi, which I haven't made in forever. I did a yuba roll, avocado sriracha veganaise rolls, natto maki, and goma-ae for a vegetable component. It was fun--I cooked while my partner cleaned up behind me. We lost power for three days so it was nice to eat cooked food!

Tomorrow we have a work-sponsored hotel stay in Halifax! Dinner details to come.

Last night was Chef Chloe mac and cheese, the baked version. I added nooch and oregano to the breadcrumbs. Yummy. With sautéed peas on the side.

Tonight was an incredibly expensive meal from Rawlicious because I was in a last minute dinner bind and really wanted something fresh. It was tasty, so whatever.

I don't think I like eggplant. I want to like it, and like it once in a while, but not consistently.

I also am not a fan of dehydrator food so far. The burger was ok, but had zero flavor. I'm pretty sure bird seed is tastier. I should have figured this out by the fact that the recipe contained little seasoning. I did like the texture, and think it has potential, but it needs seriously amped up with a boatload of spices and herbs.

I made Chocolate Stout Chili, using stout that the husband brewed himself. Said husband ate seconds. I ate my bowl of chili with some focaccia bread and pickled green beans. It was definitely a cooking win for me! I need to make cornbread or something like it to go with the leftovers, though. This chili needed cornbread.

I had a hankering for lasagna so I made one up: sautéed onions, zucchini, mushrooms, garlic, and spinach; tofu ricotta; canned spaghetti sauce; whole wheat noodles; black olives; and a weird almond milk béchamel that hopefully won't ruin everything. It smells great in the oven!

My fallback busy night dinner that I haven't made in a while: balsamic braised chickpeas on rice with salad. Yummy.

I have become a broken record of spaghetti, marinara, fresh basil and tofu the past two or three nights. That, and salad for all my CSA stuff. Tonight's probably gonna be the same since I have an event at work.

a coconut pot pie from the Vegan Stoner cookbook.

Veggies in a coconot sauce in a ovenbowl and topped with buffpastry. I'm curious. I never made this before

Have you tried Thai eggplants? They are the little round guys bursting with flavour. Amazing! I'm not the hugest fan of globe eggplants but I really dig the Asian varieties.

We had delicious (AFR-inspired, but I use way more oil) maple-roasted carrots from the farmar, kale/arugula/scallion salad with an avocado "Caesar" dressing from a local winery, and grilled tempeh with barbecue sauce. So good!

Tonight I will do something with my English peas if I can stop just snacking on them, maybe risotto. I'm also hoping to deep fry some tofu soon--the local stuff here is outstanding.

Made dinner with a friend tonight: Tempranillo and soba noodles with pan-fried tofu in coconut oil, baby bok choi & a goujuang-soy sauce.

YUM!

I roasted the most perfect potatoes I've ever tasted in my life. They were from the farmer's market, and they were so creamy and sweet I was absolutely amazed and even wrote to the farmer! So we had those roasted in chile olive oil with dulse flakes, grilled tofu with peanut sauce for dipping, barely steamed kale, and some edamame at my partner's request. I am so impressed with the produce here!

Sweet Polenta Pie from How It All Vegan, lots of bitter greens for salad, vegan ice-cream (Bessant & Drury) with English strawberries ...

some heartening red wine since this is an oddly chilly July ...

Farmers' Market Day!

Whatever I find there veg-wise, but also I've been thinking about VB omelettes a lot lately for some reason, so that'll happen.

In forever re-appreciating my ridiculous George Foreman grill, I grilled dulse last night and it was bacon. Seriously.

Slow cooker bouillabaisse. I basically put a whole load of crepe in the slowcooker, threw a Redwood fishless steak on top and am waiting for the results. I will have it with broccoli & green beans, followed by a Ms Cupcake Chocolate Chip Cookie & some vegan chocolate. And a bottle of Merlot

The baked falafel and baked onion rings from AFR. Probably not the most traditional combination, but everyone in my house actually ate it and it means I get leftover falafel for lunch tomorrow.

I forgot to buy silken tofu for omelettes and had leftover rice to ponder, so with consultation from jdfunks, I made my first ever fried rice! It was excellent. Grilled tofu, beet greens, garlic, minced scapes, holy basil some other stuff I can't remember, and I used her basic saucing technique. We also had salad with spinach, radishes, mint, and a ginger vinaigrette.

I am so happy I'm getting my cooking groove back. Oh summer produce, how inspiring you are.

Yay, fried rice!

Tonight is hot bean sauce'd baby bok choi and fried tofu over jasmine rice. The tofu was fried per order at a rice noodle shop, and freaking amazing. Oh, and dinner is at 10pm because it was a long day!
