1 month into my new job, I'm cooking again!

I am trying to make more meals that both me and the hubby can enjoy together, since we have a lot of fun cooking together, and its nice to eat the same thing every once in a while. So we chose a few recipes to make this week that hopefully I can show you soon. Of course, I also picked a recipe just for me!

Ham and Cheese Puff Pockets

I got the idea for these from Skinny Bitch in the Kitch, although I didn't use the same dough to make them. I just used Pillsbury dough (I don't have time to achieve that kind of flakiness, although I know a few girls who do...ha!) I just wrapped the dough around some chopped Tofurkey deli slices and vegan cheese slices. So yummy! Billy ate it too so it's not just PMS food as the book states :P

Potato and Leek Soup- The Vegan Table

A very simple soup, and it's completely blended. I persuaded hubby to try some (he doesn't like potatoes or onions) and he liked it! I guess because there's no chunks of the offending foods. So while it was intended to be a "Melissa only" meal, he ended up sharing it with me :)

Caesar Salad- The Vegan Table
This was made to go along with the delicious soup. It's not my favourite of the vegan Caesars floating around out there, but it is good and I would make it again. It's simple to make. The dressing is tofu based. I didn't make the homemade croutons though, as I have a big bag of store bought ones to use up.

More to come!

I don't think I've ever heard of anyone not liking potatoes before! They are so plain and homely and nonthreatening. :)

Caesar salad is the best, isn't it? I've been eating tons of it lately. :)

I know! He's a picky eater haha. "They're not that great, there's no flavour to them". What? lol, guess I've gotta start experimenting with some flavours.

Yes, I've had a huge craving for Caesar salad lately. Today I'm having it with "chicken" strips.
