I'm kickin' myself right now. I made swirl berry brownies yesterday, from Sinfully Vegan. But I didn't take a picture! I was in a bit of a hurry. I made them because I felt like baking, but not eating them, so I brought them to work. People love when there's junk food for them :) I tried a little tiny piece to see if it was done, and it was yummy. Its a basic brownie recipe with raspberry jam swirled on top. And its low fat too. They didn't last long at work, and no one knew they were vegan, bwahahahahaha. Of course, Billy ended up hogging half of them for himself and some other kitchen guys :P I think I'll do that again, whenever I have a craving for a cookie, but need to get rid of the rest in a hurry.
The roasted carrot coconut soup from LDV turned out alright. I didn't blend it enough, so there's too many little chunks. I'm not a huge fan of coconut milk in soups or entrees, but it was pretty good in this soup. I think next time I'll sub in soy milk, because I really enjoy the roasted carrot in the soup. Plus, then I'll be able to eat more at a time without fear of all that saturated fat.
I made Vive le Vegan's Banana Bliss pancakes on Thursday morning for Billy and me. You can't go wrong with banana pancakes. I halved the recipe so I wouldn't be tempted by leftovers and it made two medium pancakes. One for each of us. I topped mine with just a touch of maple syrup because the pancakes are naturally sweet from the banana. Yummers.
That's all I have for food pictures right now, so here's a random picture of our kitchen, just to show you what I have to work with.
I don't usually keep appliances on the counter, that skillet or whatever it is was used for the pancakes. There's not much counter space, but somehow I make it work. The key is continuously doing dishes ;)
I'm going to Deep River tomorrow for a family reunion/anniversary party so I don't know if I'll get any pictures. I'm bringing the last of the quinoa salad for lunch and I'm going to make the walnut basil pesto from Vive and toss it with gnocchi and brown rice for dinner.
I did a kick butt cardio kickboxing workout today...ouch!! But I feel amazing.
