Pretty sky on Thursday night…
Pav Bhaji from Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day! Served Tuesday and Wednesday night. Very tasty, although next time I will use a bit more crushed tomatoes so the filling it a bit more “sloppier.” In case you are wondering, since the recipe title is a bit exotic, the filling of the sandwich contains potato, cauliflower, red onion, red bell pepper, garlic, fresh ginger, tumeric, garam masala, crushed tomatoes, green peas, salt.
Puff Pastry Pot Pie Sandwiches from Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day! Served Thursday and Friday night. Instead of making the “no cluck cutlets” I substituted about 7 ounces of extra firm tofu. It was fun serving the “filling” over puff pastry, but next time I’ll probably just serve it over some from-scratch biscuits or hearty bread.
Early Friday night: Benjamin (on the right of course) with our neighbor’s Boxer named Lola. Lola is super cute and quite young and jumps around like a kangaroo! They did run around for a tiny bit, but since Benjamin is 10 years old, he was a bit more interested in lying around with her
Saturday morning breakfast. 1/2 cup Quaker old-fashioned oats + 1 cup soymilk + a handful of raisins + a pinch of salt. Bring all to a boil and then simmer for about 5 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed. Then I added some sliced banana, a sprinkling a cinnamon, and about a tsp or so of ground flaxseed meal. This was awesome and so filling!!! I wish I had time to make this each morning before I go to work as this is way better than instant oatmeal.
Sunday morning….forgot to flip the couch cushion up to prevent Benjamin from using this particular couch cushion. He knows that if we had woken him up, he would have had to shuffle down to the two cushions he is permitted to lay on, hence the bed sheet draped over two of the other cushions. Oh well, it really isn’t a big deal.
Yay for Sunday sewing! Finally my neglected pair of pants (M6568) are getting closer to completion! Why am I typing?! I should be sewing!
I never get tired of making these cookies.

And to make Sunday even more lazy, we are having leftovers for dinner. We often cook meals with 4 – 6 servings and eat the same dinner two nights in a row and then freeze what’s left over, if anything. This is whole wheat spaghetti with creamed kale and chickpeas from Vegetarian Entrees That Won’t Leave You Hungry. This is a great cookbook and for this specific recipe, I just substituted soy milk for dairy milk. This tasted great and was very filling served with a side salad and Italian bread.
Hope y’all were able to have a nice relaxing weekend. Or, if that’s not your style, I hope you were able to squeeze in tons of fun in every minute of your weekend!
