Update… and Promise to Blog Again Soon!

Hello to my lovely handful of readers. I want to apologize for the hiatus I have taken from blogging. It has been a very busy fall season and blogging fell off my to-do list. I’ve also been pondering my vision for this blog and where I want to take it. To do that, sometimes you need to step away. If you have any ideas or suggestions for what you what to find in my blog, please let me know in the comments section! In the meantime, I’ll start to ponder and blog at the same time. I promise I’ll be back this weekend to post about vegetarian delights in Italy and delicious fall meals.

Vacation Break from Blogging

Hi everyone, I’m leaving for a 10 day trip to Wyoming today, so I won’t be blogging for a while. Have a happy 4th of July!

Trial and Error

I’m not going to pretend that we love every dish that we make. We have a few staple recipes, but both Matt and I enjoy trying out new recipes. Sometimes they aren’t that good, and other times we just mess them up. 

This one was a potato and spinach Indian-style recipe. To add protein and make it more filling, we added tofu. (For information on how to cook with tofu, go here. It’s really not that scary, I promise!) We probably didn’t balance out the spices right, so it ended up kind of bland. Here are the onions, potatoes and tofu sauteing in water with not-enough spice.

Quick solution to the blandness: add a sauce. We had some leftover (store-bought) raspberry and pepper marinade sauce in the fridge, and poured that on it instead. Top it with some pine nuts, salt and pepper, and voila, it’s… good enough. I don’t expect to indulge in deliciousness every night. Sometimes a healthy, filling meal is, frankly, good enough.

Welcome!

Welcome to my blog. I created this blog so that friends and family who are interested in learning more about what we eat can find out a little more about it. We’ve recently had a lot of friends and family members ask us questions about our plant-based diet. Do we end up eating the same things over and over? How do we get proper nutrition? How do we know what to make? My goal is to take the next few weeks and blog about the meals we make and provide link to the cookbooks, website, blogs or other resources that we use to guide our recipes and decisions.
