Last night I made egg salad with tofu. I know, sounds weird, right? I'm kind of just experimenting to see exactly how necessary things like eggs, milk...etc. really are. I really love eggs so being entirely vegan would be a huge stretch for me (mind you, we're not vegan, we're merely dipping our toes in-me more than D; he's just kind of along for the ride because he loves me and eats whatever I make. You're the best, honey!). Whenever I'm hungover, I always want scrambled eggs. I started doing the egg-white thing cus it's loads better for you--most of my family has a problem with high cholesterol and I've managed to avoid it so far, but don't want to take any chances--and two of my family members are allergic to eggs (mom and sis). Generally, I'm told it's the yolk that causes allergy problems-which is all the more reason to stick to the whites (my reactions are anaphylactic, friends, or I'd probably be more risky with things like that which seem to run in my fam).So here was my attempt at tofu "egg salad." I found it on a website and was pretty impressed by the reviews, but needed to see for myself. I liked and so did the Fi. Mine is the above photo-on a Flatout Wrap with kale, mushrooms and 'maters. I love my veggies! If you're interested in the recipe, you can find it here: Post Punk Kitchen.Hope you all had a super fantastic, warmer day than we did. It's been cold and I've been lazy about running in it...back to the grind tomorrow. Perhaps more later.
And because Fi is being such a good sport, I decided to bake some delish chocolate cookies from Veganomicon, and to cut them into Heart-Shapes, since I'm already in the Valentine's Day spirit with all the mental planning and the reservations to Hemingway's being made (we tried for Les Bourgeois Winery like last year, but they only took six reservations this year for large tables! What??? So this place seemed like a fab second try since we've never been for dinner but it had a super cool atmosphere when we went for drinks).
Below is a pic of the awesome, tasty, filling and, probably, super fatty cookies I made for D. He enjoyed them and I'm going to make some vegetarian Indian food for him tonight that I know he loves. He deserves it.
