Parker, my eldest, turned 17 on Sunday. It doesn't even seem possible. He and four of his friends went to a local "escape room" and had a great time then came back to our house for board games and some snacks.
|Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar Kitchen Sink Chocolate Biscotti with dried cherries and pecans.|
Parker is not a huge sweets fan so he asked for biscotti instead of cake or another dessert.
|Focaccia bread and samosas with mint and cilantro chutney.|
Parker loves samosas and they are easy to eat while playing games.
|Clementines, chips, salsa, and guacamole.|
Parker wanted fishless tacos for the get together, but since he's the only vegan in the group and everyone was stuffed from the snacks, I made the tacos tonight.
|Vegan fishless tacos.|
I made the sauce out of cilantro, vegan sour cream, water, garlic, cumin, cayenne, jalapeno peppers, lime juice, a bit of sugar, and a pinch of iodized salt. I used Gardein fishes filets, but next time I'll try tofu. Parker really loved them and I could eat anything with the sauce so I'll definitely make them again.
Parker's birth story is here. If you have little ones, hug them often. It really does fly by!
