Now's the time when *everything* is due, right before exams. I've got a midterm, two essays and an online test all done, but still have a research project, a quiz and an assignment due...why do profs give you assignments due the same week as the final? On to food, which makes me happy.
The other day I made the 5-minute roasted red pepper pesto from La Dolce Vegan. I had pre-cooked some soba noodles the day before, so it literally took me 5 minutes to make dinner! Toss some jarred roasted red peppers (or roast them yourself), walnuts, parsley, basil and garlic into a blender and whiz in some oil, and you've got dinner. I was even able to make it in my mini-blender so I didn't have to clean up the food processor.
It was good, the only change I'll make next time is to toss it with more pasta, I'd prefer it as a light covering, not a thick sauce.
I brought the rest of my nanaimo bars to work because I was eating way too many of them. They didn't last long. All the servers loved them, and aside from those of them who know I'm vegan, no one was the wiser. The only comments I got were : "Homemade? How Martha of you!" ;) I've only got three days left where I can use my lunchbox before next semester, so I'll be making some yummy food to pack later.
