Texas Caviar – a lot like my black bean salads, but made with black-eyed peas. I had to leave out the cilantro for the haters.
Okay, I know I make roasted veggies all the time, but I wanted to show you the vast assortment I prepared today in a huge roasting pan. It has yellow squash, calabaza squash, baby bella mushrooms, onions, garlic, red pepper, broccoli, and cauliflower, and is seasoned with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and rosemary.
New Potatoes, Green Beans, and Carrots with Chives – It is what it is. (I was going to roast them too, but changed my mind at the last minute.) Boiled potatoes, local green beans, and carrots, dressed with olive oil, white wine vinegar, salt and pepper, and fresh chives.
Extreme Chocolate and Macadamia Nut Tartlets with Caramel Sauce – this will probably be my submission to Urban Vegan’s Vegans Gone Wild! recipe contest. It’s a pastry crust filled with a mixture of 99% dark chocolate, macadamia nuts, and dates, and topped with caramel sauce. Definitely an adult indulgence and a total sensory experience.
So Chase’s move took the whole day yesterday, but he’s in his new apartment. He’s sorry he couldn’t make time to go to the veggie dog eating contest. It was supposed to rain all day but didn’t, so that was a relief. And now that Chase is moved in and my sister leaves tomorrow, I promise to visit you all real soon and hopefully have another post by Tuesday.
