A Vegan Breakfast Sandwich, Cinnamon Bread, And Corn Dip
Whoops! I don’t know how it happened, but one second I was putting my little man to bed, and the next I was waking up in my bed, grabbing for the clock in the darkness. I hate that feeling! When you wake up and you’re like, “Wait. Where am I? Is it day or night?!” And then I start to feel guilty because, “Maaaan, I had so much to do.” So this post is mostly going to be pictures of what I whipped up today, since I’m not exactly all with it yet after that impromptu nap. Everything I made was a test recipe from the cookbook I’m testing for, so if something looks good, check out VegWeb.com for a similar recipe. There’s seriously nothing you can’t find on there. It’s like vegan recipe Wonderland!
For lunch,I made a vegan eggless sandwich with marinated tofu, and stuffed with vegan “bacon”. The bacon is homemade also! The recipe even had a special spread to go with it. These ladies think of everything.
I then made an amazing loaf of cinnamon swirl bread. This bread is like a cinnamon bun in loaf form.
By dinner tonight, all I could do was sit down with a giant plate of lightly steamed naked broccoli and just go at it. All this rich food has been delicious and I’m having so much fun testing recipes, but we definitely couldn’t eat like this all the time! To go with the giant plate of broccoli, I did make some corn on the cob and their chipotle dipping sauce to try out. Who knew corn on the cob could have a dipping sauce?
There were still some leftovers from other meals, but with all those rich, tasty foods available, my little man chose to double fist the naked broccoli. I’m such a proud momma!
Enough about food, the weirdest thing happened today. I was kneading the cinnamon bread dough one last time, and my little man was standing at the coffee table playing with his toy duckies. The mailman dropped the mail in the box, like he does every day, and my son ran to the door and started yelling, “JoJo, JoJo, JoJo”. JoJo is what he calls my grandma, and he hasn’t talked about her since the last time we went up to visit. I reassured him JoJo would not be just showing up at our door and it was the mail, the same as every other day. I opened the door to show him, grabbing inside the box, and there was only one thing in there. It was a letter from my grandma (JoJo). At this point I just looked at him, shaking my head and feeling a little crazy. Yeah, I still feel a little crazy typing it! What a strange coincidence… Has anything like that ever happened to you?
Do you find that people often assume vegan = healthy? (Feel free to show them some photographic evidence from my week of recipe-review mania!)
