Sunday, February 12th

Wegman's Crunchy Peanut Butter and a sliced Banana on an Ezekiel English Muffin for breakfast.
A Groupon induced lunch at Pete's New Haven Style APizza where I enjoyed a 14" Pizza with Daiya Cheese, Red Onion, Roasted Tomatoes and Mushrooms. Pizza is the food I miss most since becoming vegan, so this lunch was a real treat. If I lived closed by, I'd eat this Pizza every day, it was of the utmost quality even with that little piece of crust trying to escape off the side of the pan.
Two Veganomicon's Seitan Cutlets (mega rubbery) with Mr. SV's Homemade Tomato Sauce (pretty odd looking dinner, I know)
Day two skipping dessert. Not sure what that's about but there are three new pieces of cake in the fridge with my name on them, so they'll be showcased this week.

Atsa chunky tomato sauce-a! Is mr. SV Italian?? The pizza really does look fabulous. I'm a big fan of onions on pizza. How far away was the place?

Ingrid said...

Rubbery cutlets. What will become of them?

I, too, have had the Italian craving. It is my intention to one day make a pizza from scratch at home. In the meantime, I made a lasagna which I will demolish this week.

Hooray for cake in the fridge!

Peanut butter and banana are my two current flavour favorites, though I'm not showcasing them on my own blog. And the pizza, wow...and your accumulation of desserts without eating them...I can only say I bow down. Not happening here!

Stacy said...

That pizza does look great. Too bad about the cutlets. I guess you could always grind them up and use them as fake ground round?

blessedmama said...

Ack, I do not like rubbery seitan - bummer. That pizza...scrumptious looking! You're so lucky you have a place like that at which to treat yourself. Our closest one is about an hour away, and it's muy expensive. So, it's homemade for us, or cheeseless when we do go out.

I just caught up on your blog posts. I have been reading them from time to time, but I usually only have one hand to type with. Have I ever mentioned my favorite go-to pizza? Okay - this is what you need to try: take an Amy's cheeseless pizza (the one with mushrooms, artichokes, etc) and while still frozen cover it with sauce and daiya then cook.

Hope you are doing okay? I'll be back to blogging soon so I'm sure that will raise your spirits! :)

You know, I've had peanut butter and banana sandwiches aplenty but never thought of doing the same with an english muffin. Great breakfast idea! I'm totally stealing it.

That pizza looks fantastic. The crust alone looks really good. Glad you enjoyed it!

Rose said...

What can I say...the pizza takes it. Looks truly yummy.

Rubbery seitan is a bummer...I usually add about a tablespoon of this stuff called urad flour when I make seitan...makes it tender. It's flour made from some type of lentil or bean and I bet chickpea flour would do the same, or similar anyway. I've also read on other blogs to use tapioca flour to make it tender.

Hey Now!!!!!

FF, Mr. SV is of English/German heritage but just happens to have an ancient Tomato Sauce recipe. The pizza place was less than an hour away, but parking was a nightmare.

Ingrid, I am guessing I will eat all the cutlets. It won't be fun.

Zoa, don't shatter the illusion of The Airy Way life with a common Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich.

Stacy, if I hadn't gone to the trouble to form and steam the seitan into cutlet shapes, I'd be more open to grinding them up.

Blessed Mama, this pizza place was expensive as well. I was pretty shocked at the number of kids there. Maybe they just get to chew on the discarded crusts.

jenny, how can you possibly blog with four children??? I can barely blog with zero children. Thanks for the pizza idea, I think I've seen that Amy's cheeseless pizza before.

Molly, come to think of it, this may have been my first PB & Banana on an English Muffin as well.

Rose, I have both Urad and Tapioca Flour. If only you had told me this information two days ago...

Pizza is what I miss the most since becoming a vegan as well. That pizza looks great!

That pizza looks pretty amazing, I have to say! It's not often you can get a full on vegan pizza, and a really great one at that! That one looks pretty legit! The sauce looks really good to me but bummer about the rubbery seitan.
