Saturday was an awesome day.
Thomas and I ate this delectable, but not too filling breakfast, took a long walk, spontaneously went to OMSI (science museum) where was a dinosaur exhibit!, among much else, and finished the day watching the Trailer Park Boys movie at the Clinton Street theater. Gah!
Banana waffle, maple syrup, fresh sliced bananas and baked tofu bacon.
My pancake skillz weren't coming together (ah, fate), so I made the Crack of Noon test recipe for Banana Flapjacks in my waffle maker.
For the tofu bacon, I baked my slices in marinade for 25 minutes on both sides, just less than an hour total. The marinade was based on the VWAV recipe - consisting of maple syrup, tamari, liquid smoke, crushed red pepper, water and tomato paste. I baked them at 400 for 20 minutes, and then 425 for the rest. I flipped them over once more (third time) for a quick broil at the end.
And some french pressed coffee.. (Stumptown Breakfast Blend)
Wingnut Confections Goji & Brazil Nut Cluster. I got this for free from People's Coop, and it's superb! I'm not a big brazil nut fan, but they're so crisp and clean in this.
It's an all-vegan chocolate company, and their motto is appropriately, "candy with a conscience". Thomas and I shared half of it so far. You can never get enough goji, you know.
