So… about that hot date.
I had never met Gigi before, but the conversation never stopped! I LOVE these two. I’m so glad that they relocated to Louisville!!
I have a feeling that we will be seeing a lot more of these two- that is if they will have us. 🙂
Today we just hung around the house and did some major cleaning. Luvy did most of it though. It always makes me feel guilty when he does most of the cleaning. I got a lot of school work done that I was backed up on.
After much deliberation (all on my part because I can’t make decisions), we FINALLY decided on dinner. Today marks the first day that I start adding in foods that I’m truly allergic to. For the next two weeks, I will be eating cauliflower to see how my body reacts.
So for dinner, we had grilled chicken (I had Quorn chicken), steamed broccoli and cauliflower, and MAC AND CHEESE!!
Since I can’t have dairy, you may be wondering how I can have mac and cheese… Well, Luvy bought me some Daiya cheese. It is so good! It is made from pea protein instead of soy, so it is LEAP friendly. I have had other vegan cheeses, and this one is the best! However, it is like $4 a bag. But used sparingly, it is worth it.
Vegan Mac and Cheese
- 4 cups of pasta shells (or whatever pasta you prefer)
- 1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk
- 1 Tbsp soy free earth balance
- 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
- 3/4 cup Daiya cheddar style cheese
- salt and pepper
- paprika to garnish (optional)
Cook pasta according to package directions.
Garnish with paprika- do it! It is so good!
I have confession to make. I have a problem with hot things… I burn myself and other things (mostly plastic) all the time. Tonight, I melted the top to my FAVORITE kitchen gadget! It is a 4 cup batter bowl from Pampered Chef. I’m an idiot.
Now, I’m stuffed and annoyed, so I’m going to hit the couch for some time with Luvy.
Sorry for the long post tonight… had to make up for lost time yesterday. We had so much fun that we didn’t get home until almost 10!
Do you all have a problem melting things?? I’m thinking it must just be me!
