First of all, this is a vegan lasagna I made for work. It is really delicious. It featured my veggie infused marinara, vegan (nut free) pesto and tofu ricotta. I topped it with FHY mozzarella. This is the second time I've made it as a special and it sells well. Even though we're not a vegan place, we have a lot of vegan food that is enjoyed by our customers. I don't think there are a huge number of vegans, but many people with allergies and even some omni's that just want a change.
Pretty messy salad, but this is what I've been eating as my big meal lately... complete with Superfood Salad! (a raw kale based salad with a citrus flax vinaigrette)...
I have not cooked here for a while. I have cooked for my kids.. but lately I have been eating either cereal for dinner or out of my freezer where I have a ton of individually packaged soups.
This is a pic from last summer, but I brought the recipe for these delicious chocolate cupcakes into work this morning and our baker made them! Woohoo! Everyone loved them and no one believed they were vegan! Let them eat cake! hehe.. Terry (the baker) frosted our batch with an earth balance buttercream that was colored with beet powder. I'm sure these will become a staple because they are so freaken delicious! I was very proud of myself as I only had 1 bite of one.
Speaking of cupcakes.... my month weight loss report was pretty shocking.. I lost 12 lbs last month! Woohoo! I weight in once a month now and this was a fabulous surprise!
I am going to start swimming when I move back to Portsmouth next month... I won't expect this much every month, but am very thrilled when I lose more than I was aiming for. (for those of you who don't know, I am aiming for 1 lb a week)..
