To Get Caught Up …

There are a whole bunch of food photos on my Flickr that I have not blogged about at all. Some of these were original recipes, but for the most part they are from The Vegan Table by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. So here’s a quick run-down of what I’ve been eating for the past 6 months or so.

Spring Vegetable Risotto (from Vegan Table) – yum!


Grilled asparagus and tofu/veggie kabobs. These are heavenly and I could eat them all day.

No Queso Quesadillas, from Vegan Table. Mmm, guacamole.

Mushroom Gravy on top of Drop Biscuits (buried!). The gravy is from The Vegan Table, and the biscuits are from The Joy of Vegan Baking, by the same author.

If you’re interested in vegetarian cooking even in the slightest, these two cookbooks are the best ones to have, in my opinion. And looking at those grilled kabobs makes me really miss summer. We also did an all-vegan Thanksgiving again this year, but I didn’t take any photos. A lot of it was the same as we had last year, so that’s ok.

Our plans for New Year’s Eve include hanging out with the family and playing board games for as long as we can manage without getting too giddy from exhaustion. I’m going to fix Hoppin’ John (from The Vegan Table), which is basically black eyed peas and rice with some veggies and seasonings. In some parts of the country and the world, it’s good luck to have black eyed peas at midnight on New Year’s Eve – and it’s delicious, so who needs an excuse, right?

Anyone out there have any more exciting plans than me??

  1. Happy new year! We didn’t do anything too crazy, just hung out with some friends.

    Those veggie kabobs look amazing!
