It's worth it to take our buddy back to Texas where he was born and raised. We got him as a puppy right after we moved to Austin the first time in 2006. He'll love going to the Boston Terrier meetups and seeing his doggy friends again.
I've started packing little things here and there. Last night I did the books. Ten boxes! Our stuff that we don't use very often is still in boxes from our last move, so that gives me a head start. In one week, we hit the road!!
Here are some recent forays into the kitchen:
Pumpkin Chocolate Bread Pudding from Urban Vegan. I used up my last can of pumpkin, left over from the holidays, to make this. I loved it. Of course I did; I'm the pumpkin fanatic in the family. Tony didn't care for it. The mushy texture of bread pudding is not for everyone. Do you like it?
Tofu Omelets from Vegan Brunch, filled with homemade seitan chorizo. After I took this pic, I doused it in salsa. Yum! Garlicky chard on the side.
Pizza with homemade vegan pepperoni, pickled jalapenos and faux parmesan for me and Tony. Plus a couple pieces with just sauce and cheese, for the babies.
Finally, Coco-Manda Muffins from Urban Vegan. I made these last night for a bake sale at Tony's job, to benefit a coworker whose daughter is battling cancer. I don't have a lot of stuff in my cabinets right now, but fortunately I had a can of mandarin oranges and some shredded coconut. So I was able to make these little treats and contribute something. The coconut oil and coconut extract in these muffins makes them smell absolutely heavenly.
Have a lovely weekend!
