Various thoughts that go hopping down the bunny trail. Now I am more bunny like than ever. Vegan adventures have begun.

Friday Night Musings
I have returned to making some more juices. The one on the left is a mix of carrot, cucumber, broccoli, lemon and ginger. I put a little too much ginger in it and it was a bit too spicy. The one on the right is a mix of kale, apple, cucumber, lemon, beet and ginger. This is an excellent tasting juice.
Fall is a great time to start making soups again. This one is a blend of butternut squash, apple, and onion with some nutmeg to spice it up.
Making soup and bread has helped to keep the house warm as the temps drop. No need for the heat yet, it is still 70 degrees in the house even though it is 43 outside. The bread uses a mock cheddar cheese and is spiced with onion and garlic powders. I used the egg substitute of flaxseed, baking powder, potato starch, corn oil and water and flax milk for the milk product. I used the bread to make a vegan BLT for breakfast today using bacon spiced tempeh.
We can't forget dessert. This is a raw sweet made with dates, cashews, coconut, cocoa powder and tahini. The ingredients were minced in the food processor and then rolled and chilled. I think they would have been better with peanut or almond butter in place of the tahini, but otherwise they were a nice sweet.
