The first post: Introduction and a Memorial Day dinner!

31 May

hello there! thanks for stopping by!

i have been toying with the idea of starting a blog for quite awhile now, and today is the day! the title of my blog reflects my love of cooking for my fiance, john. we have been engaged almost 2 years, and together almost 6!

we both eat an almost vegan diet, the only exception being eggs from local farms. we both feel better with a little bit of animal protein in our diet. we decided to follow this lifestyle primarily due to animal rights propaganda, and now realize we are helping not only the animals but our own bodies and mother earth. i have been a vegetarian for 3 years, and john followed suit not long after that. i didn’t even have to force him! 😉

tonight i made us a yummy spread typical of what we used to eat as meat eaters…

first up, a vegan potato salad! i used this recipe, replacing mayo with vegenaise, and adding scallions.

scallions, celery, fresh fill, apple cider vinegar, dijon, vegenaise and lemon juce!

i had a serious craving for barbeque this afternoon, so instead of making veggie burgers as planned i whipped up this bbq tempeh and served it in a gluten free wrap for me and on top of some toasted bread for john.

bbq tempeh ingredients. the corn was steamed and served on the side with some earth balance, mmm!

i also made us some sangria to sip, it was delish! just a lil something fun for the holiday. john had to work today, but i had the day off!

gotta get to sleep, tomorrow it’s back to work!
