Food, glorious food!

I've feel like I've been posting like crazy about food and it's because I am crazy about food. I'm very excited about all the delicous vegan recipes I've come across and delighted that they pass the hubby test. Today we tried a new recipe for "Spicy Italian Vegetarian Sausages" at Everyday Dish and they are spicy and fabulous. I can't wait to test them out with sauerkraut and mashed potatos. I'm sure we could make a German version too if I were to look up the spice content of your average brat.

Recently I joked to a friend that I may be the only one ever to switch to a vegan diet and gain weight. The sad thing is, it's true!

Last week we bought an inexpensive popcorn maker since my Costco box of popcorn ran out. It was the worst $10 we've spent. The plastic started to melt on the first batch, which was smokey, and on top of that, it didn't hold enough and we needed to immediately start another batch. Today we broke down and got a "real" popcorn maker. Tonight, it's me, a movie and endless popcorn baby!

Vegan Yum Yum

I just wanted to take a moment to say Vegan Yum Yum is awesome. There are so many wonderful dishes and the photography makes me want to lick my monitor. Today our lunch was the Vegan Yum Yum dish of the day, Lemon Pepper Pasta, and quite tasty at that. I'm looking forward to trying many more of the recipes over there. Yum!

Move over Clive, here comes Edgar


Ok, I'm shallow. I admit it. I saw my first glimpse of Clive Owen when Bourne Identity came out. He was cute in that movie and absolutely hot in Closer. Now the latest villian in the Bourne series is played by the delicious Edgar Ramirez and he's especially sexy in Domino. Phew. Glad I got that out.

While surfing recipes yesterday I ran across this one for Susan V’s Barbecued Seitan Ribz at Everyday Dish. She even has videos on youtube that show how easy it is to make them! Originally I was looking for something new to do with a butternut squash (she has a pumpkin hummus recipe I can't wait to try!). We tried the ribz and they are finger lickin good. Hubby was thrilled that it was like eating real ribs, minus the fat, gristle and bone. I didn't take a photo, but they even look like them in the pan since you cut the dough into strips. Woo hoo!
