A couple of things..

It was Andrew's 16th birthday on Saturday! I can't believe fast time flies. He requested a blueberry cheesecake. I veganized it and he had no idea. Good stuff. He had a party at a gaming center with 9 of his friends. I made baked ziti, garlic bread and salad. the ziti was not vegan, so no pic. At least that's my story.. in reality, I have been cooking a lot, but rarely taking ANY photos. Probably because I've been talking so many photos at my job!
I made some 'meatloaf' based on the recipe from Cozy Inside.
I had real intentions of following the recipe, but of course, I didn't. Maybe one of these days I will. We loved the meatloaf. Half of it is in the freezer. We ate some for dinner and this sandwich was a great lunch. It's on my homemade spelt bread. I had some leftover mixture, so I turned it into veggie burgers. 6 in total. Talk about a bang for your buck!
I have several meals in the freezer for the week. Clean out your fridge enchiladas. I will force myself to take a pic of them when we eat! I also made a polenta pie with caramelized onions, cabbage, garlic and kidney beans and individual frozen pizzas that the kids can eat for snacks when they get home. The toaster oven will be perfect to re-heat them.


just a flower on the side of the road..

  3. Happy birthday to your son! He has good taste, what with blueberry cheesecake and all...

    I know what you mean- I can't possibly photograph all my food, and when I do photograph it, I can't possibly get around to blogging about it. I've had to learn to not feel so guilty about it... which is difficult! When did blogging take over my head??

  5. Wow, what a beautiful cheesecake. My mouth is watering. It's great when something vegan is as good as, or even better than the dairy alternative. Go veganism!

  7. I love that Andrew had no idea it was vegan. I plan on doing that this weekend for my Aunts birthday with a chocolate pudding recipe. They will have no idea. The cheesecake and meatloaf look super good and good job making veggie burgers out of some of the leftover!

  8. The cheesecake looks like a tasty birthday dessert!

    I often forget to take photographs too, no worries.

    Yes, Cozy Inside is on my list to buy. I can't decide between downloading or actually purchasing it. I almost wish I could download a copy after I buy the book. The PDF search functionality is so useful, but I really love thumbing through books.
