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.

Nest

Have you ever seen Big Bird’s nest on Sesame Street? It’s probably been a while especially when it’s not shown very often. Big Bird of course has this massive sized nest, as he should since he is of course, Big Bird. I find myself comparing my nest to Big Bird’s. I mean, for a while my nest was pretty big. All four of my baby birds and Papa bird fit into the nest quite nicely. We had room to grow and grow is exactly what they did. GROW! And they grew some more and now they don’t fit into the nest like they used too.

Now, I spend a lot of my time perched up in my nest, spending a lot of time alone with my thoughts. It’s funny, as they get older, so do I. I have to face my own mortality, the baby birds having birds of their own, finding jobs and flying away. For a while I felt sad but then quickly felt refreshed because I remembered what Papa Bird said about that empty nest.

An empty nest means freedom. Free to fly to Vegas. Free to fly here or there. Fly anywhere! Sex here. Sex there. Booze in the morning if I want. Booze at night if I like.

Just freedom! The empty nest isn’t looking so bad anymore.

Sunday Humor…Red Light Drivers

image

Have you ever paid close attention to people in their cars when there’s a red light?

As a rule I’m normally in my own little world as I’m driving.  I usually try very hard not to make eye contact with anyone.  Lately, I’ve been making an exception to my rule.  I have decided for blog purposes I will try to more aware of my surroundings.

Here are few of my observations:

There’s the White Knuckle Driver.

It’s usually a woman in the mini van with a car load of kids.  She’s usually the slow moving vehicle that’s in the fast lane.  She’s extra cautious and annoying as hell to the drivers around her.  She takes the extra 10 seconds to make sure that traffic is completely stopped before proceeding.  I’m the asshole behind her honking my horn.

Nose Picker Guy.

Every three or four cars there’s a man without a care in the world sitting in the drivers seat with his finger jammed up his nose.  Incidentally, he sees you looking at him with disgust and he keeps on digging.  I sure hope he finds what he’s looking for.

Rocking Out Guy.

This guy’s radio is so loud that you can hear it over your own radio.  He’s super engrossed in the music and dancing that his car is bouncing all over the place.  Then the light changes and he snaps out of his trance and smashes the gas petal.  This used to be my husband until he turned into the next guy.

Fake NASCAR Driver.

This person (man or woman) looks at every green light as the start of their very own NASCAR race. This person is anxiously awaiting the light changing. They are so focused they’ve studied the traffic light patterns so that they can hit the gas as soon as it changes, they go from 0 to 60 in two seconds. They are the first person at the next stop light and then the cycle starts all over again.

Now I’m guilty, all things considered, I am the fake NASCAR driver whether I’m driving my mustang or the baby bus. I have the lead foot and I must be the leader of the pack. I’ve calmed down my road rage to a mere simmer. People are crazy and I’m not willing to gamble. Sadly, my engine pays for the sins of others.

What kind of red light driver are you?
