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

Apple Pecan Pancakes
Pancakes for breakfast! This version used coconut oil, silken tofu, rice milk and apples. The texture was a little to spongy for me. I have had better luck with pancakes by using a non vegan recipe then converting it. The recipes meant to be vegan always seem to have texture problems. These were served with broken pecans and maple syrup.
For lunch I had a vegan sausage with tomatilla avocado salsa and ketchup. Cabbage slaw was on the side. Snacks during the day included a apple banana muffin and a seeded granola bar from Atwaters. Yes, Atwaters is open in Canton now!
Lemon Garlic Asparagus
We had dinner at the Canton Waterfront Park. It was the first of the First Thursdays concerts in the park. Joan Osburn was the headliner. Even though it rained during the middle act, it was a fun night. I started out with a winter seasonal Woodchuck Cider. As the night progressed, the lines to the beer tents were ridiculous, so I made a run to Chesapeake Wine Company for a rose. For dinner we had Sundried Tomato Risotto and Lemon Garlic Asparagus in the park. The risotto was made with short grain brown rice, onions, sundried tomatoes, basil and parsley. The asparagus was roasted in the oven with the garlic, lemon, salt and pepper.
