Golden Potato and Tempeh Casserole or VeganMoFo Day 20

I've blogged about FatFree Vegan's Golden Potato and Tempeh before. I've used tempeh and tofu and we liked them equally (well, the kids preferred the tofu). This time I didn't like the flavor of the tempeh as well (it was a different brand (Soy Boy) and a little strong tasting for me). I don't know if I did something different, but it was good just not quite as good. Next time I will use tofu or use our normal brand of tempeh.20 days of vegan food...done! Whew! That was fun so I'll try to keep it up, but I don't know if I can manage 20 posts a month. We shall see. I will at least keep it going the rest of October. (Cheering and applause.)

Last week I shopped more than our usual Saturday shopping so I tried to make it last through this week. I made it until Thursday and just had to buy some apples, bread, and a couple other things. It does feel good to use what is around and not run to the store on every whim. We end up spending less and it makes mealtime interesting as we get to the end of the week. I like thinking more about our shopping choices. We still have a lot of room to improve, but it feels good to be more and more deliberate and not take food for granted while still enjoying what we eat.

Joanna, I need to try the one from ED&BV when I get it back (it is loaned out right now). I don't know how I've missed it.
