As you can tell, I posted variations for the carb conscious and the carb lovers. Choose what you wish. It’s delicious any old way. 🙂


Can’t get enough of that fungus!

Seriously. If there’s a portobello recipe that I can find right now, I’l make it. I made Fat Free Vegan’s Portobellos Stuffed with Pesto-Mashed Potatoes. Oh my god, they were so good! I have to make these again! Actually, mum liked the sound of them so much, she’s thinking of bringing them to xmas (since we already have t-day planned. Can’t bring too much food!). And I’m totally okay with that 😀

I also had a bit of a fail moment. I made the carrot spice muffins. Not gonna lie…I’m not a fan. They were try, griddy, and tasteless…frankly. Ew. No offense. I’ve never had a problem with any of Susan’s recipes before…but hey. There’s a first time for everything. I’ll probably just toss them. I couldn’t even finish one 😦


No idea what I’m going to make tomorrow. I’ll probably use up that last portobello that I have in the fridge 🙂 But who knows. I’m not going to be home (ew school…I hate Buffalo). Well, at least tomorrow is the last day before thanksgiving vacation. I just wish I didn’t have to go to my humanities seminar tomorrow night. Three hour long classes aren’t fun at all. And getting home at 7 at night isn’t fun either. Leaves very little time for cooking. So maybe tomorrow will be a cooking-day-off and I’ll just do more the next day. I mean, I need to make some thanksgiving food ahead of time (ie the PIE! WOOOOO! i’m so not excited…) So lets see where time takes us…


As for now…my eye itches. You wanted to know that right? Well here’s more info…my right upper eyelid is like swollen, itchy, and hurts to blink. Weird right? Annoying too…no idea why it’s doing this…about two or three weeks ago the same thing happened to my lower left eyelid. Gahhh.

More portobello lovin’.

I guess that you could say that I’m a little obsessed with portobello mushrooms right now. They’re just so bloody good. So for supper tonight I decided to make Vegan Dad’s Fettuccine with Maple Balsamic Portobello Mushrooms. De. Lish. Oh yeah. And I decided to make a loaf of Irish Soda Bread to go with. It tastes really good with raspberry jam on it 🙂 And yeah yeah yeah…the picture looks fugly, but it tastes great.


Now I’m really trying to think about Thanksgiving. There is going to be hardly anything vegan friendly there. At all. I mean…the only veg-friendly things will be the squash puree, applesauce, and tossed salad. How boring. There are a few things that I know I’m going to bring…steamed broccoli, steamed asparagus, mashed cauliflower, and fat-free vegan’s Impossible Pumpkin Pie…but what else? I want at least one nice vegan side. My family HATES health food, and is totally opposed to anything vegan at all. Should I just makes something “normal” like roasted root veggies, or show I blow their mind by making like…seitan or something? Oh so conflicting…

Fungus is what’s for supper!

I’m not the biggest fan of mushrooms, let that be known. So this is kind of a big deal…with supper tonight I had Vegan Dad’s Grilled Portobello Mushroom and Onion sandwiches! And let me say…it was SO good! It had a great texture and taste (I also added a little veg dressing) and they were so quick and easy to make. You all should definitely try them.

I’ve decided to slightly alter my menu for this week. More actual cooking this time! Here’s the list:

-Indian Style Potatoes and Spinach
-Spicy Hash Browns
-Quick and easy Maque Choux
-Italian Meatballs
-Homemade Sausages or vegan lunchmeat
-Ultimate BBQ Tofu w/ sweet and sticky BBQ sauce
-Tunori Melts/sandwich (depending on my mood…)
-Yellow Curry Coconut Chickpeas
-(if I’m ambitious) chocolate chip pudding cake or chocolate pumpkin pudding cake
-maple Dijon Brussels sprouts


I would have done more today had I been home. Not that I will be tomorrow…I’ll just try to be more ambitious 😀
