Dude, what’s a blog? I’ve been working so hard to help “put food on my family” that I haven’t had time or energy to post. So of course I’m just going to inundate you with pics from my phone now…of course. So, in no particular order…
Eggplant parm sandwich with a side salad and spicy mango and avocado cucumber gazpacho from Dulce Vegan Bakery & Cafe.
The easiest, creamiest and tastiest nooch-based mac and cheese recipe evah!!! Seriously. It’s from Susan Voisin over at FatFree Vegan Kitchen.
I think I made this twice in one week. This here second time, I stirred in some peas and elegantly dotted it with some Sriracha sauce. Oh yeah.
Our local asian market sells these frozen vegan fish slabs. One night, N fried them up and we ate them with cocktail sauce and noochy, bread-crumb covered baked brussels sprouts.
I haven’t picked up my knitting needles in awhile but this is what is on them, a short sleeve pullover/t-shirt thingy. After I passed the interesting neck section, I can’t bring myself to just knit the
boring bottom part (knit, knit, knit…). The yarn is a hemp-based yarn.
One day when I accompanied N to Sam Flax art store, we saw this. This is the first seedbomb machine I’ve seen in Atlanta. Super exciting! How it works: insert coins, get seedbomb, throw seedbomb somewhere with dirt, repeat, watch your city fill up with plants native to the region.
N was feeling brave one day and decided to make Vietnamese crepes again. He did a better job than me.
Samoas-style vegan pancakes at Radial. Yes. Like the girl-scout cookies. I’ve been leary about Radial Cafe ever since we found a huge chunk of brisket, yes brisket, in our food after numerous strange interactions with a server who overly emphasized the fact that we were vegan. The pancakes were nom so Radial, you’re regaining my trust again. Maybe you and I were just meant to be breakfast friends.
Yup, there’s more. Vegan french dip sandwich with a side of “beet it or I’ll kale you” salad. Love that name!
And of course, dessert. A strawberry whoopie pie from Dough Bakery. Damn you Dough and Gutenfleischers for being so delicious! Not really, I love you guys and will probably be there tonight or tomorrow to get that SK philly special!
N’s parents gifted us with passes to the High Museum, so we went recently to see the Hale Woodruff’s restored Talladega College murals.
Across the street (nearly), is the Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA). We went there too to catch the “Skate it or Hang it” exhibit.
I got a hold of some fresh mangosteens from the farmer’s market. I only had them canned before so I had no idea how to open them. First I sawed at em’ with a knife, then I found this video on how to open them. Life got easier and I ate them all.
A quick meal of quinoa chili over masher taters.
Tempeh-bacon, lettuce and tomato sammich with avocado and sprouts.
My favorite raw breakfast. Raw ackee mixed with 1/2 cup of smooshed young coconut, cilantro, tomatoes, black salt and chives. I had it with mangoes and avocados.
Hanging out at one of my favorite used bookstores, Book Nook, one rainy Saturday afternoon.
A curry dish made with Patak’s mild curry simmer sauce kale, tomatoes and canned seitan over jasmine rice. N added coconut milk to make it creamier and less spicy for me because I am a spice wuss.
And finally, these guys. Always these guys keeping me sane. She stood like this for 2 minutes.
This guy kept me company when N was sick in bed one weekend. We laid about and he helped me grade papers.
