Soup, Sandwich, Cutlet and Fries

Lunch was a WF's "Spring Garden" sandwich and a cup of Pumpkin Soup.
Dinner was one of Alicia's Cutlets w/Heinz 57 and a side of Sweet Potato Fries with Curry Sauce (Veganaisse mixed with Curry Powder)

If I do say so myself, this batch of cutlets was the best I've ever made. I could go into business selling them.

Seitan Sunday

Lunch today was Celebration Field Roast with Mashed Potatoes and WF's Wild Mushroom Gravy.Dinner was TJ's Chickenless Chick'n with Stove Top Stuffing (contains HFCS, but so easy and good, stuffing made w/Veggie Stock and Earth Balance) and WF's Wild Mushroom Gravy.To me, something about Sundays mean making stockpiles of Seitan. Even though it was gorgeous outside today, I made a batch of Alicia's Cutlets (had some sticking issues today, so they look more like oatmeal cookies) and a batch of Chickpea Cutlets ...So many faux meats, so little time.

Call Me "Moana"

This is my Vegetable Burger from Dish today. Hand made with Lentils, Mushrooms, Carrots, Onions etc Hummus on the side... and Fries....
The Fries: Sinful. Light and airy on the inside, delicately crisp on the outside. I'm not a moaner, but today I moaned out loud upon tasting one of these ethereal morsels.

Dinner was a one of Alicia's Cutlets w/Heinz 57 and a side of Spicy Garlic Green Beans leftover from Thursday.

Curing Heartburn = Eat More

Yesterday I ate a bunch of foods I don't normally consume. All were vegan, so I'm not sure what caused my heartburn. I am pointing the finger at the Carr's Water Crackers. After much deliberation today, I decided a simple Yves Baloney Sandwich w/Veganaisse and Yellow Mustard would settle my stomach.It didn't, so a few hours later I had some leftover Stuffed Gardein Cutlet with Mashed Potatoes and WF's Wild Mushroom Gravy. That sort of made me feel better.
So I had some more Mashed Potatoes and Wild Mushroom Gravy, this time with Celebration Field Roast.
Then I had a slice of Wholly Wholesome vegan Pumpkin Pie.How much am I going to need to eat today to recover from yesterday?

Pre-Thanksgiving Grub

Lunch today was the buffet at Passage To India. The website says the buffet is $7.95, but it's really $10.99. There were only two veggie options without dairy -- Curried Chickpeas and Cabbage with Peas.
Dinner was Celebration Field Roast with Mashed Potatoes and Road's End Organic Gravy.

Looking forward to seeing everyone's vegan Thanksgiving feasts!

Not The Best Food Day

Today at 10:56am I ordered online from Fosters Grille for 11:15 pickup...At 11:15am, I walked into the restaurant and told the cashier I had ordered online. She then walks over to printer, pulls off a sheet of paper and hands it to the cook. I was miffed. (Not too miffed, they were handling my food). Ordinarily, I'm more meek, but I now had time to kill. What's the point of online ordering if I still have to wait? The cashier insisted the order had "just" printed out when I walked in because it said "11:15". It also had a prominent "10:56" timestamp. How could I be walking into the restaurant AND placing the online order at the same time? but details... details....Anyways, a frozen Gardenburger was flung into the deep fryer alongside the Fries and within minutes I was out of her *ss and on my merry way. God forbid she should just admit to not checking the printer till I arrived. As it was, the burger was tough and the fries were salty...
Dinner was Quick Vegetable Ragout, aka Bland Boring Mixed Veggies. Not enough salt and pepper in the world to save this dish. (Sure could've used some of that salt from my fries at lunch). Oh well, tomorrow is another food day...

More Sweet Eats

You know it's good Seitan if you're willing to brave entering Whole Foods three days before Thanksgiving to get to it.Is it is worth wading through the throngs of entitled and oblivious shoppers? It is. Dinner was a one of Alicia's Cutlets w/Heinz 57 and a side of Roasted Butternut Squash. A delicious day.

Comfort Food Friday

Many years ago, I was addicted to Entenmann's Raspberry Danish (washed down with a pot of coffee). Last year I found some Rugelach in the store that tasted just as good and were also vegan.
I hadn't seen them since then and I'd given up hope of ever seeing them again. I've even tried contacting the company via the website , but to no avail.
October 3rd, 2009. I am food shopping as usual. I see a small table. Sitting on it were five boxes of Raspberry Creme Rugelah. (Don't know why the sign said 'Cinnamon')
Who set up this little table and sign for a company and product that is unreachable?I debated buying all five boxes, but settled on just three. I'm currently down to my last box, but, since we've been experiencing such nasty weather lately, I felt like treating myself to three of the tiny delectable pastries for breakfast. Lunch was balls. Eleven Meatless Meatballs in Penang Sauce from Wegman's Asian Wokery Hot Bar. Dinner was Alicia's Cutlets w/Heinz 57 and Sweet Potato Fries.
A great food day.
