Amara, Indigo, and Josie (she had three outfits and ended up wearing Bat Girl sans cape with tiara with the matching pumpkin container provided by thoughtful neighbor, Margie)
Parker as the red ninja and Dema as the black ninja
The boys trick-or-treating at Vicky and Greg's (they always have some vegan candy for the kids and so do Margie and Rick...lovely, lovely neighbor friends).I am also thankful for awesome friends. Seth made vegan caramel for candy apples for our party. I never made vegan caramel, but Seth isn't vegan and he makes it. How cool is that?!
dandelion tea because I consumed copious amounts of the stuff Monday and felt better Tuesday so maybe that helped. I have now grown found of it, so that is a plus too. I really felt like cooking again for Wednesday lunch...
Rice Noodles with Alfredo-like Sauce from Vegan PlanetThe recipe calls for fettuccine, of course, but all I had was rice noodles. As I was cooking, I thought, "This is an accidentally gluten-free meal." We aren't gluten free, but I've been paying more attention to that since we have several friends avoiding gluten now. Then I added some Vegan Diner seitan to it, but if you are gluten free this is a great recipe because the rice noodles worked just fine. I wanted to add broccoli, but only had one bag so I ended up pureeing it all with the sauce in my Vitamix so there would be no fighting over who got the broccoli. Ends up not being an issue since three out of five people don't like Alfredo sauce in my family (Parker and I love it, but Parker was at school...yet another reason I miss homeschooling him). Rob didn't even like Alfredo in his pregan days, but I still hope to win him over some day.
