My family had brown rice with sauce. They had some crackers on the side. They also had fruit salad.

I sauteed onions with mushrooms, greens, and basil, with a bit of balsamic, and when it was cooked put it on a potato bun with Miyokos cream cheese, black olive and capers.

For "dessert" I mixed a serving of canned pumpkin with black strap molasses, cinnamon, pecan pieces and unsweetened vanilla almond milk.

Gettin creative with the left overs.

That's a good start but I wonder if you would consider adding beans or tofu or peas to your rice. It would give your family more nutrition and necessary calories.

Stir fry again. this time with string beans.

What do you guys think, Is it really necessary to cut the tips off the string beans?

Necessary? no.... makes for a better eating experience, imo. o_O

I made possibly the biggest batch of potato carrot cashew cheese to date.

I ate a portion of it on small, warm corn tortillas, topped with summer squash, red onion and greens that I sauteed with some tamari and black pepper.

I may try my hand at fava beans tomorrow. I'm frightened. Not just because I've never made them before, but Hannibal Lector might show up.

I unbelievably came home from work and made vegan fried chicken from scratch.

First I made some homemade seitan, and allowed it to cool for a while.

Later I cut part of it into nuggets and dipped it in water mixed with yellow mustard, and rolled it in a dry mixture of chickpea flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder and baking powder.

It turned out pretty well. I wonder what it would be like baked.

I also had an assortment of fruit - watermelon slice, half a ruby red grapefruit - a slice of bread and some tortilla chip pieces stirred into salsa, and a cup of hemp milk during the several hours it took to actually make the nuggets.

Lol. What a weird day.
