Meat out!

This has been a week of vegan victories! On Tuesday night we invited our favorite vegan couple to dinner to try out VegWeb's General Tao's Tofu - Delish! The tofu came out surprisingly well and was crispy on the outside and soft in the middle and the sauce was wonderfully sweet and spicy.

We made a few modifications - we added a heaping spoonful of Asian Chili Paste to the sauce (we like spicy!) and instead of just serving it with steamed broccoli (boooooring), we sauteed bok choy, broccoli, bell pepper, and onion in the wok and then mixed all of it together with the tofu and sauce. We served it hot over brown rice - yummers!

For dessert, my friends sampled my two newly veganized cookies - Awesome Crunch and Ginger Snap - for my baking service, From Scratch & Sniff. I got some great feedback and was even told that my peanut butter cookie base for Awesome Crunch is delish, by a non-peanut-butter-cookie-liker! FS&S will soon be a completely vegan baking service - watch out for it, friends, it's gonna be great!

On Sunday, we're going with the same couple over to the Pepperclub for the Maine Vegan Meet Out Group's celebration of National Meat Out! The Pepperclub has a 4 course meal at $22 planned for us and we're very excited to make some new friends and try new foods!

All in all, this has been a great week and on top of it all, the weather outside is beautiful today! Huzzah!
