I actually did cook at the beginning of the week, but decided I'd rather read all day then do anything else, like blogging, for the rest of the week!
For breakfasts, I decided I'd make some glazed cinnamon buns from Table for Two. They were alright, and only the day of. They were rather dry, and not nearly sweet enough for my liking. The only sugar came from a little bit of juice concentrate in the batter and in the glaze. Plus the tahini/apple butter filling just didn't do it for me that much. I much prefer the cinnamon buns from Garden of Vegan with their delicious cream cheese glaze.
But, once I made them, I was in a baking mood...so I made some vanilla cupcakes with a cinnamon "glaze" from Vegan Cupcakes. I botched the glaze but it turned out tasty anyways.
Since I'm supposed to be eating more kelp and seaweed, I made a miso soup with a kelp powder broth and some nori chopped up in it. Blech. It was okay, but just too strong for my liking. It was a bastardized version of the miso soup in How It All Vegan, which I'm sure would be fine if made properly. After I made this, I went out and bought kelp tablets. haha
I mentioned a while back that my How It All Vegan cookbook had fallen apart. Well, my wonderful mom took me out shopping last weekend and bought me a brand new one!!! So to celebrate, I made the soup from HIAV and the artichoke rotini, except with spaghetti instead of rotini. This was a really yummy meal. And light too, which is nice when it gets this hot.
I have to share this picture of Logan with you. It demonstrates why we named him Logan, after Wolverine from X-Men ;) I guess its time to trim those claws!
