Sausages, Mofos, and Canada?

Sometimes I have no idea about a post title, folks. Sorry 'bout that..

I just got signed up for Vegan MoFo (Vegan Month of Food) which means I'll be doing my best to blog every day in November. If you want to take part, here is the sign up form.

I'm pretty excited because I'm going on vacation. The last time I went on vaca was May 2009, so I think the time has come! This means no computer for several days. We need those kind of vacations once in while, don't we? We're going to Montreal. I've been to Canada several times, but never Montreal, so I'm excited to check it out.

In the meantime I'm stockpiling sausages, ha.

That's how I steam my seitan sausages, since I don't have an actual steamer thingy. I made the Breakfast Sausages from Comfort Food Vegan. I think they'll freeze well. When I get home from a trip, the last thing I feel like doing is making a grocery list and doing a big grocery shop. It takes too much mental energy while I'm still trying to break out of vacation-lazy mode, get caught up on laundry, sort through my accumulated mail, etc. So, this time, I thought I would prepare a few things and freeze them so I can cook meals when we get back, without having to rush to the store. We'll see how that pans out.

Dinner tonight was simple, to give us more time to pack -- baked potatoes with sour cream, and sandwiches. I took some steamed broccoli and sprinkled it with garlic salt, then stuffed it into pita halves and added some vegan cheddar shreds. I grilled the sandwiches for a couple minutes on each side. They were pretty tasty.

Have a great weekend, see you all next week!


  1. Yummm that meal looks so comforting and tasty!!! Ugh, I need to get back to blogging regularly again - maybe that will give me the inspiration I need. :)

  2. The food looks delicious. I have been down to one post a week due to sick kiddos. Ugh. We are going on a computer free holiday next week. I am looking forward to it.

  3. i havent been to Montreal either! and being Canadian, its a shame I havent. i've heard so many wonderful things about it tho and u'll definitely have a blast sampling the cuisine <3
    if u get a chance to find some vegan poutine, uve gotta try it..mmm gravy over fries and soy cheese- HEAVEN <3

  4. Have fun on your trip. That's a great job stocking up on food for when you get back - I feel the same way.

  5. I hear they have lots of great vegan good up there. I'm sure you'll love it.

  6. Sometimes a baked potato and an impromptu sandwich is dinner perfection. Especially on those busy evenings when the kids just need to be fed quickly!
