To Do


I know it's been a lot of the same 'ol same 'ol when the best thing I could come up with to post about was a tofu scramble. Actually I did manage to make the Pumpkin Baked Ziti from Veganomicon for a holiday potluck but I've already posted about that. So now I'm resorting to a post not about something I've cooked but about some things I'd like to cook. Maybe one of these days soon. In no particular order...
  • Seitan Bourguignonne from The Voluptuous Vegan. Might try this for Christmas dinner.
  • Sauteed Seitan with Mushrooms and Spinach from Veganomicon. Something fairly simple I might get to soon.
  • Cajun Meatloaf from Vegan Dad. Well, I'd really like to make almost everything that Vegan Dad posts.
  • Continue experimenting with my seitan patties.
  • Re-visit the Apple Uglies. But instead of apples use pears and ginger.
  • Delve more into the Real Food Daily cookbook. I checked it out from the library again but I've hardly touched it and now it's due in 3 days. Maybe I can renew it...
  • Another video. Any requests? Is anyone actually reading this?
So what's on your list?

Yes, I'm reading. I'm just crazy busy with my "baby," who is named Dissertation. I read your blog and drool over all the food I'll make when it's all over...

Hi Chris!
Yeah, that Cajun Meatloaf caught my eye too. It looks good, doesn't it. I really love the Voluptuous Vegan and also the Real Food Daily. In fact, RFD is probably one of my favorite cookbooks. If you go to my blog and do a search on "Real Food Daily" or "RFD" you'll see lots of pictures of tasty things I've made. The only thing I'm really not crazy about in that book are the desserts. Voluptuous Vegan, on the other had, has great desserts!

I have your recipe for Apple Uglies printed out and ready to make up for tomorrow for my sweetie. It's our 9 year anniversary together and he loves apple fritters and hasn't had one since becoming vegan so this will be my little treat for him. I can't wait!

The Seitan Bourguignonne is wonderful. I have made it a few times for holiday dinners for my omni extended family and all have loved it. I would make it again but don't want to get in a rut!

Yes! I am always checking this site and reading your posts. I was laughing about the Amy's goddess dressing - we always say at my house it would make a paper bag taste good.
We love your posts and your blog has definitely influenced us to try some new things.

Of course we're reading... we never stopped. It's good to know the baby is your priority... check in with us when time allows. On my list is homemead seitan.

My son is the same age as yours - or close - he was born May 21, 2008 and he's my PRI #1 too:) Yes, we are all still reading. I actually made the vegetable curry last night, the recipe you got from the Food Network site. YUMMY:) and so easy! I'd love to see you post what goes into your tofu scramble. I do mine a couple different ways but still don't love it. So what you do for yours is something i'd like to read about. Otherwise - more quick/easy vegan dinners:) Thanks for keeping up the good work, even while being good parents:)

Thank you all for reading and taking the time to comment!

I rarely make the same tofu scramble twice EL, but I did write down a recipe once - I'll post it one day soon.

I'm reading! You're on my blog roll, which tells me whenever you update. I liked the hash brown video, so I think another one would be fun!

And I've been meaning to get around Vegan Dad's Cajun Meatloaf too.

Hi Chris! I'm a frequent reader from California. I check your site often and enjoy your recipes, photos, and reviews.

I would love to see a video on how to make seitan. I've never made it, but seems like a staple for your family.

I made Vegan Dad's Cajun meatloaf and it's TO DIE FOR...and I'm not a big tempeh fan, usually.

And cause it's winter I'm looking forward to playing with lots of stew and creamy soups....mmmm
