Sunday, April 29th

Susan V's Omelette for One, a Hash Brown and Smart Links for breakfast. This was my first time making a vegan Omelette and I was very happy with how it turned out, even if it doesn't look like the real thing. Once I get the hang of keeping it in one piece, I'll try some fillings.
Mr. SV & I split an order of Spring Rolls $4.95 
I had the Green Curry with Tofu $13.95 - Green Beans, Broccoli, Bamboo Shoots and Basil Leaves in Coconut Green Curry over Linguini at Thai Deelish.
Blessed Mama's Maple Glazed Seitan Roast with HP Sauce and a Baked Potato with Sour Supreme for dinner.
Lucky Readers, I did some nature photography in the backyard this afternoon. Second from top is Soapwort, bottom is a droop of future Black Cherries. The other two are weeds of which we are overrun.

Coming up tomorrow: More Omelette for breakfast.

Lucky you with such a beautiful backyard! I trust there were no baby bears assisting with your photographs. Even if they are weeds, they certainly look nice! I'll trade you the dandelions and wild grass I spent all morning pulling.

Good looking eats, too!

I've been checking the Vegan Van schedule to see when our paths might cross - it will be soon.

Whoa that breakfast looks great! I'm such a sucker for a good breakfast! That omelette recipe sounds great, I'll definitely have to give it a try someday.

Looks like you had a lovely lunch as well as a delicious dinner. I agree with Ingrid, you really do have such a beautiful backyard, weeds and all! Beautiful pics, thanks for sharing!

The only excuse I could possibly have for not eating those pb cups is not finding them. Hopefully that won't be the case!

Nice flowers, really Spring over there eh!!

Breakfast looks like some serious business. Really jealous about your flowers, though. They're beautiful.

What a delicious looking food day, starting with a vegan omelette - what a treat. I really want some green curry; that always looks so good. Nice to see the backyard flowers. I hope you'll share more of those with us.

Making a tofu omelet has long been one of my culinary goals. I've seen them around online, but I haven't done it yet. I always hated eggs - had to smother them in ketchup to get them down, but if an omelet was stuffed with enough goodies, I could eat them. Pretty weeds!

Molly said...

Great job on the omelette!

Love the flower photos, even if a few are weeds, they're all pretty.

Hey Now!!!!!

Ingrid, assuming Remy didn't do his business on the Dandelions, you could try cooking the leaves and or roots. Just a suggestion for a future project (for you, not me).

VaVa, between you and Ingrid, I'll have to take a pic of the backyard. You're both being too nice.

Alessandra, yep, Spring here! Autumn down there?

FF, no doubt there are beautiful flowers coming up where you live. I think someone once even wrote a book about a tree actually growing in Brooklyn.

Miss Rachel, I'm gonna try to share more non-food details. It's not easy for me since it violates the mission statement of the blog.

Blessed Mama, I loved smothering eggs in ketchup as well. This omelette doesn't taste the real thing, but the look and texture is pleasing. It is a good vehicle for ketchup.

Molly, I figured everyone has seen the regular flowers like Phlox and Iris, but maybe everyone hasn't seen these weeds.

Kimberly, Green Curry is so easy to acquire. Probably could find a jar at Big Lots.

I think your omelette totally looks like one! I've made Fat Free Vegan's omelette before too, and I agree, it is tasty. Zoa has a good formula for chickpea omelette too, which always turns out well for me.

Looks like a tasty day; I still think green curry and linguine are unlikely partners, but I'm sure it's yummy just the same.

The nature shots are lovelly!
