So far so good! Since Monday I’ve eaten only vegan. I thought Thanksgiving was going to be tough but not. I cooked a few dishes for the party. Steamed kabocha with garlic and green onions, yakisoba(both a big hit!), and grilled soy sausages(not a hit). On Wednesday, we did a vegan Vietnamese take out and it was good! The papaya salad and bahn mi sandwich, yummy!
On the other hand, work has been tough. Hardly anything I could cook for myself to eat. I make veg stir-frys or a veg/tofu donburi with rice. Pasta arrabiata, etc. Guess it’s not all that tough after all but just don’t have the time to cook it. Gotta start making sandwiches or bentos at home to take to work. Pretty sad that I need to brown bag my meals to a restaurant where I chef at. Oh well.
Went shopping today(Friday) to restock my fridge with the basic vegan necessities. All vegan of course: Mayo, sandwich meats, cheeses, instant frozen meals, bread, sausages, etc. Never in my life I have bought any of these products and I must say it’s all good! Spent a lot of money and a bit hard on my pocket book but at the same time, very excited to cook up my new vegan meals :) So here we go!
Tomato, basil, black olive sauce over rotini pasta.
Soy cheese, grilled onions, and refried beans quesadilla.
