I apologize for my lack of posting. Our pool was finished a little over a week ago, and I think being in it all of the time has reduced my brain to a quivering mass of nothingness. I haven't made anything too exciting to post about, no new recipes, no trips to amazing restaurants. But I did take a few pictures of some food I have made, mainly so I don't feel too guilty about not posting. *sigh*
Okay, I lied. This is one of the few recipes I did try lately: Spiced rum seitan with coconut rice and pineapple salsa. My sister made me a book full of her greatest recipes a few years ago (she is quite the clever cook!), and most of them are veggie or vegan, but this recipe originally called for shrimp. I really like seitan, so I substitued it in lieu of the shrimp in the rum marinade. I will post the entire recipe as soon as I get off of my lazy chlorinated butt and go find it. :-) I think I might try tofu next time.
This was a breakfast from a few days ago...it looks like a horror film prop or something! But it is just steel cut oatmeal sweetened with prickly pear cactus syrup. Yummy.
Lentil stew. Excellent mopped up with a chunk of heavenly sourdough bread. Mmmm.
Marinated corn and grape tomato salad. Another recipe from my sister's handy recipe book. Delicious!
Note: I will be away for almost two weeks starting on Thursday. We are heading off to a cabin in Lake Tahoe for a much needed getaway (because lounging in the pool is HARD WORK I tell ya!!!). Does anyone know of a good grocery store or restaurant in the Reno/Tahoe area where I can find fresh organic produce or vegan friendly food? We are driving, so I will be bringing a bunch of my pantry essentials and as much produce as I can manage, but I assume I will need to make a grocery store-run at least once while there. And ideas/advice/bits of wisdom?
