Vegan Black Pepper Tofu

Shocker alert. I have never had tofu before. Never ever!!! So…well…I mean! Well damn! I should just spit it out.

The Vegan Black Pepper Tofu was FIRE! That shit was good.

I was skeptical when I took the tofu out of the package. I wasn’t especially happy about pressing it to take the water out. Feeling the tofu was fucking strange because the texture felt weird. I’m just glad that it didn’t have a smell or this shit would have been dead from the very beginning.

Needless to say, we had another day with eggplant on the menu. Today’s eggplant was pan seared and with the soy sauce concoction that I made gave the eggplant an awesome taste. I can honestly say, I can fuck with eggplant this way versus the eggplant Parmesan that I made yesterday.

On a scale of 1 to 10, I give this dish a 8.5. If all vegan dishes taste this damn good then I’m totally looking forward to my new lifestyle.

I forgot to take a picture of the food on my plate because I fucked it up real quick. But I did capture the prep.

Browning the tofu…

Browned the mushrooms and eggplant…

All together now…

Shit was good…until next time!!!

Eggplant Parm

Another edition of recipes that I’ve tried. I want to become a full time vegan but I can’t be selfish. This was the first time I tried eggplant and veggie spaghetti. Soooo…let’s break this down.

Eggplant is a pain in the ass to prepare. I didn’t know I had to salt it, flatten it to get the water out, etc. After I dried it, I of course wet it back up. Go figure. For a second I felt like I was living in a oxymoron moment. Any who! The eggplant didn’t taste to bad.

The veggie spaghetti started off tasty while it was piping hot but as it cooled so did it’s flavor. Needless to say, I gobbled the shit up quick.

Overall, the meal was good. I would give it a 5 out of 10. I can’t say that it will go into heavy rotation but I will eat this shit again in a month or so after I’m tired of trying new vegan shit. Sadly, I’m having eggplant again tomorrow. Wait to you see this shit I got planned for tomorrow.

If you want the recipe you got to hit me in the comments.

Vegan Chick Pea Gyros Who Knew…

Vegan Chick Pea Gyros. OMG!!! Amazing. Very delicious dish. I had to rearrange the flavor profile to add a little of me but shit I could eat these all day. Too bad I just come back from the dentist and my mouth was still numb. I had a hard time keeping my food in my damn mouth. (If One of my kids snuck a pic, someone would have thought I needed a damn baby bib) But the shit was so good that I didn’t give a damn that I kept biting the fuck out my tongue.

Roasted chick peas were the meat substitute. Who the fuck thought of this idea? Shit was on fire with spice but it was off the fucking chain.

Today’s side dish brought to you by the letter C as in cauliflower bitches. Okay. I’m being silly. I hate cauliflower or do I? I made barbecue cauliflower. These mofo’s were great. Changed my mind about fucking cauliflower. Shit was delish! Any who! I posted some pictures. If you want the recipe then you gotta post a comment.

On a side note, cause I just HAD to share…I got rejected from a vegan group on FB. Can you believe that shit? They had a questionnaire. Guess my ass was a little to real when I said…”I love fucking meat…it just doesn’t love me.”

Fuck, I’m thinking about some bacon right now. PIG bacon! Not that fake shit! I digress! Here’s the pic.

Vegan Burrito Bowls

I’m not on a challenge or anything but I am very interested in becoming a vegan. Overall a plant based diet might be better for me long term, however we will get to that bullshit on a different day.

I’ve made a few tasty vegan dishes that didn’t have me missing any meat. I took pictures. I may start posting the recipes if I love them.

My crazy ass thought that Spicy Garlic Brussel Sprouts would be a yummy side. 😖😣☹️. I do not like Brussel sprouts. I repeat I do not like Brussel sprouts. This is not a DRILL. Hell to the nah!!! Bad…bad…bad! (I’m not knocking those that like em, IJS)

I thought I would attempt to eat them with a grown up palate and they were an epic fail taste wise. I can however point out that I did at least try. Oven Roasted Garlic Brussel Sprouts Needless to say the meal was simple to make. I had to put a little bit of soul into it because the recipes called for no additional spices…BUT…honey, I don’t do bland!

Chicken and Waffles…

I’m not a fan of breakfast food but recently I went to a little Restaurant called The Egg Bistro. 

Okay, I’ve actually been there two times this week. That’s just how good the food was. 

The first time I ordered two pancakes, thick cut peppered bacon and some country ham. No one told me that the pancakes were massive. I barely made it halfway through my plate before I was full. The pancakes were amazing. My only complaint is that they don’t warm the syrup. However, I’m sure if I wouldn’t have been so busy stuffing my face I probably could have asked. 

Today, I was sitting next to a table and the lady sitting there ordered the chicken and waffles. Now, I wanted the pancakes  bad and had been thinking about them everyday this week but as soon as I saw that beautiful display of food, I immediately changed my mind on the pancakes and decided to try something different. Different as in waffles and not my faithful love of pancakes. 

Yes, I’m a true creature of habit. Once I find something I like, I won’t order anything else off the menu. Because I’m eating of course what I like. 


Doesn’t it look pretty?

The waffles came with a caramel bourbon sauce. Which I immediately asked for an extra cup of once I tasted it. 

Absolutely delicious! 

It was so good I wanted to lick the plate clean but I had already ate too much. Now here’s the real shock. My meal came with the chicken and waffles and a plate of cubed hash browns and it was only 10.99. Can you believe it? That’s a lot of food. Because I’m greedy, I also ordered the thick cut peppered bacon and a strawberry mimosa with a splash of champagne. 


They could have dressed the glass better but no worries…I killed it too!

Needless to say, I ate all the bacon, chicken, waffles, and potatoes. Driving him, my eyes were so heavy that I thought I was going to fall asleep. 


I’m going back again before the weekend is over. 

P.S. I took my son, the picky eater and they actually had boiled eggs, sausage, and fresh fruit that was satisfactory to his likes. He was a happy camper when he left too. The waitress was very impressed that he knew exactly what he wanted to eat. 

Burger’s 

It’s February but it was 80 degrees today. I decided to make burgers. There’s nothing like making my own hamburger meat. I don’t know what they put in the hamburger when I buy it from the store. 

This time I decided to do a veal and beef chuck blend. But…me being me I couldn’t stop there. I made a Parmesan, Swiss, mushroom and onion mix to add to my burgers. 

Hope you didn’t think that I was done. I also decided that I needed sautéed mushrooms and onions in a white wine butter sauce. I impressed myself. Bon appetite!!!
