Cook Day 12/8/10

I love cooking and eating any squash!  I made an awesome Vegan Butternut Squash and Pear Soup that was so good!  The recipe came from Vegan Soul Kitchen by Bryant Terry.  This cookbook is loaded with great healthy recipes and you don't even have to be vegan to enjoy them.  :)

Cook Day 11/22/10

Here it is December 18th and I am still writing about a November cook day.  Oh well, it is what it is.

This cook day was a great vegan victory for me.  I have been looking for veg ravioli for over a year.  I finally found some at Whole Foods Market.  Now I know what you are thinking.  I just took a pasta making class to make vegan pasta.  However, I haven't had the time or money (vacation and Christmas) to invest in the equipment.  Maybe Santa will deliver it to me for Christmas.

Cook Day 11-17-10

I went on vacation last week and thought I would have more time to work on getting my blog up to date.  I was wrong. 

As soon as we landed at Fort Meyers Airport it was 85 degrees.  Now three hours earlier, it was 23 degrees at the Detroit Airport.  I had to take advantage of the fantastic weather on Marco Island.  Our condo faced the Gulf of Mexico and we watched dolphins, pelicans, sand pipers catch the jumping fishing.  It made me forget I had work to do, which was good, because it truly was a vacation.

Here is a picture menu:

Chicken Cacciatore

Vegan Tofu Cacciatore

Jasmine Fried Rice with Shrimp

Vegan Jasmine Fried Rice with Seitan

Vegan Vegetable Miso Soup

It's good to be home, but I still wish I was on that island.
