Webly and I hit up the farmer's market on Saturday - I got to restock my fridge! It was to the point of me having 3 spears of asparagus and no other vegetable in it.
Shiitakes, portabellas, sugar snap peas, pattypan squash, broccoli, basil, raspberries, strawberries and cherries.
Below are some halved shiitakes and zucchini pieces waiting to be roasted in white wine, tamari, sunflower oil, garlic and pepper. This was a side dish in my previous post.
Part of Multnomah Falls - Thomas had an old friend in town, so we went with them. I should not have gone up the path as far as I did, part I was enjoying myself, so I did. Today = foot pain, plus we had a fire alarm and I had to walk down 9 flight of stairs this morning, ouch..
My first cherries from the farmer's market, on Wednesday.
More cherries from the Saturday market.
Stir fry of freshness. I partially steamed these veggies.
Asian-style seitan o greatness and veggie stir fry, topped with sweet and sour sauce, ala vegan yum yum.
Another quick stir fry of chard, snow peas and carrots over jasmine rice, with a slice of the asian seitan o greatness.
For the seitan, I incorporated 5 spice powder, grated ginger, a ton of crushed garlic, tamari, hoisin, vegetarian mushroom oyster sauce and a ton more of white and freshly ground black pepper.
Chard salad with vegan yum yum tester creamy maple sesame dressing.
Friday night's dinner - balsamic grilled cremini mushrooms and zucchini, fresh chard and 123s and chreese. Yes, I certainly make my own mac and cheez now and then, but the shells and 123s bring back college memories..
As for the mushrooms, I can't get enough of them lately. Last night, we had bruschetta topped portabella burgers, which I want to make again asap. I dig living in a city with local mushrooms, it still amazes me.
Some attempts at vegan yum yum tester cherry trifles, and a strawberry variation.
