My Thai Birthday

Another birthday has come and gone...and with it, some delicious food. Before I get to that, here's some other dishes I made in the past two weeks.

Curried Rice Salad- Skinny Bitch Ultimate Everyday Cookbook
This book continues to impress me, I haven't come across anything that I didn't love. This dish has a creamy dressing, with raw veggies. Billy liked it too, so double win!

Banana Ice Cream- The Vegan Scoop
This is good with some chocolate chips mixed in.

Black Bean and Tomato Soup- Skinny Bitch UEC
This has plenty of veggies and a bit of kick. It gets a really nice creaminess from blending half the soup.

Vegan Cassoulet- Skinny Bitch UEC
French for casserole, this cassoulet is great comfort food. It has leeks and white beans. It's kind of like a pot pie filling topped with bread crumbs.

Caramelized Pear and Cheese Crostini with Balsamic Reduction- Skinny Bitch UEC
I made these for my birthday party yesterday.....I would buy the cookbook for this recipe alone. It was a perfect combination of chewy crunchy bread, savoury cream cheese and chives, sweet pear and a kick of balsamic zing.

Vegan Donuts!
Billy surprised me with these from a new bakery downtown. They were nice. It tasted like banana bread in donut form :P

We made spring rolls for my birthday dinner. Correction, Billy made them and I helped a little :) I'll be posting the recipe soon.

Pad Thai- 125 Best Vegan Recipes
This is tasty, I love the mix of sweet and sour. Next time I make it, I'll be crisping up the tofu.

Here's our girlies....they get along fantastically :)
