I haven't been able to post in a few days. My wireless network at home is being kind of kooky. Anyways, Sunday I made Coconut Pie Pancakes from La Dolce Vegan for breakfast. Yummers! I kind of burned one of them, but other than that, they were so tasty! Great served with maple syrup and a little coconut for garnish. I had almost a whole can of coconut milk left from this, so I whipped up the banana coconut pudding from La Dolce Vegan. We'll see how that turns out tomorrow.
For lunch I had leftover barley mushroom stew from How It All Vegan. I love barley and I love stew so this was a perfect combo! Plus with the weekend dumping 40+ cm of snow on us, it was very warming and comforting.
Dinner was vegetable and millet stew from Vegan Cooking for One. It made enough for two people, in my opinion, but I still ended up eating it all. It wasn't really stew, per se, more like a veggie stirfry on a bed of millet. It was good for what it was, I just found it a little bland. It had brussels sprouts in it though, so that's a bonus. :D I'm not giving up on the cookbook though, I'll keep trying recipes, hopefully I'll find a winner! I had it with some broiled french bread brushed with some olive oil and a little salt. Yum!
Today, in the supermarket, I found these PC tamari corn and rice chips. When I opened the bag and smelled them, they literally smelled like vomit. But...they tasted good! I can't believe I even dared try them after the smell! They are super spicy. They remind me of nachos, and are a good snack.
For dinner I made the sunflower-lentil pie from Vive le Vegan! accompanied by a tahini mustard sauce (also from Vive!), a salad and sweet baby corn. The pie is so good! And the sauce turned out beautifully, it really compliments the dish.
I bought a spaghetti squash today, so I think I'll be making stuffed squash soon, as soon as I get all these leftovers eaten!
I weighed myself this weekend. I didn't gain or lose any more. I was actually relieved about this, because I didn't eat so well on Thursday and Friday (ramen noodles, nachos, the likes) but I got back on track and I've been exercising more lately :). Hopefully I see some results next weekend. I've discovered that if I exercise on our elliptical trainer while watching the O.C on DVD, a whole episode goes by so fast, and I get in 40 minutes of cardio!
Oh yeah, I got 98% on my animal histology midterm! Woot!!
