Some stuffs

These are Banana Wheat Germ Muffins, another Veganomican test kitchen recipe. Does anyone else remember eating wheat germ with your fingers when they were younger? Strange, but sweet memory..
FYI, the book is currently set for release next fall.

Thursday night I didn't have much going on in terms of dinner ideas - but I did have a bunch of random vegetables, and more of the sundried-tomato seitan log, so a meal was born. In the pan (you can't tell, but it's one my shiny new ones!) are broccoli, seitan, creminis, squash, sundried tomatoes, spinach, roma tomato, garlic, oregano, white wine and a little bit of grapeseed oil. We both enjoyed this last minute meal. I'm now out of the seitan, and will be tweaking the sundried tomato version this week.

Friday I got out early from work, enjoyed a leisurely lunch at Hush Hush with a friend, and walked around downtown before running errands. I knew I wouldn't have a chance to go during the weekend itself, so I did some shopping at Limbo. Sure the farmer's market opened this weekend, but there'd be no garlic, and I love my 2.99/lb garlic, cheap veggies and bulk herbs galore. I mean...wall to wall galore. I picked up two organic portabellas, and we had them grilled for dinner on ciabatta bread. As you can obviously see, my avocado was super duper ripe, so I'm going to make a shake out of the rest, perhaps..

The farmer's market was gorgeous, even if it was rainy. I met up with friends, and we toughed it out, and took turns ooing at different veggies, it was awesome.
I picked up basil, baby bok choy and yukon gold potatoes. The basil has already gone into marinara, a tofu marinade, and roasted garlic and hazelnut/amond pesto.

Not so gigantic but they could have been - peanut butter oatmeal cookies from VWAV. Served with vanilla soy milk. One with chocolate chips, one without.
Last but not least, I recently had my second taste of soft serve at Blossoming Lotus.
It was $1 delightful dollar's worth of chai spice. I'm not quite a chai lover, or liker, but this treat of cool creaminess made my taste buds happy.
