Refridgerator casserole

Some stuff is going bad soon, quick, cook it all together!!!!

Quickie cassorole with leftover brown rice, tvp sausage crumbles, cashew cream sauce with sage,roasted sweet potatoes, roasted cashews and topped with a smidgeon of puff pastry that was drying out in the freezer....

It was pretty good, but definitely improved with a scoop of cran sauce on it, Thanksgiving in one bowl, haha!

PANCAKES!...and penny pinching

So....I did end up making those cinnamon rolls with several substitutions and just a sugar glaze instead of frosting and they were pretty good! However I forgot a picture and after the first day, they looked a bit grody but still tasted delicious heated up.

Today I made PANCAKES! A benefit of unemployment is making yourself breakfast in the not so early morning. (I now wake up at 8:00 instead of 4:45!!!)

These are whole wheat pastry flour pancakes from this veg web recipe: since I didn't have all the ingredients for the Vegan Brunch pancakes.

I also used the Vegan Brunch whole berry sauce with just a little less sugar added yummy! And cheaper if you have a few frozen berries in your freezer than real maple syrup.

I'm trying not to buy any food until I figure out if I can get some food stamps..I have an appointment later today to find out. My cupboards are so bare! :( At least there are pancakes! :)

Vegan cheezy mac & a rainy day

WELL, I totally forgot I had started a blog on here...I guess I should post some stuff. I am now recently unemployed so I should have plenty of time to update.

Its pouring in Portland and about 65 degrees (goodbye 2 weeks of summer!!!) so I needed something warm and filling. Also, cheap. I get one more check on friday from my job, but until then, no monies for a grocery excursion.

Flinging open the fridge door revealed a bunch of little bits of things; mimicreme, peas, 1/4 cup of daiya, nearly empty bottle of mustard, the dredges of nooch. AHA! OF COURSE! Mac and cheeze and peas!
Behold the pasta of necessity....

cheezy mac

That picture is just for posterity, this is how I really ate it: canadian style with ketchup!

ala canada

Cheezy Mac Murder, the only murder in my diet! Heh heh...Now I'm off to experiment with cinnamon rolls from the fantastic book Vegan Brunch. Pictures later, if they turn out!
