Dear Chickpea Cutlet, I love you, please be mine.
In other news; cake!
Curtis wanted something sweet after dinner, so he started leafing through the cookbooks and decided on the Carrot Cake from LaDolce Vegan. It was really good! It was more like a cinnamon bun, in a way, only not bun shaped. But its all good, it wasn't too sweet, and it was moist and delicious. I made a simple vanilla/almond glaze for it, and we ate it all at once! MUAHAHAHHAHAH. Okay, no, no we didn't we were so full of cutlets we could only have a little, but it was great!
We've been looking everywhere for My Sweet Vegan, the recipes I have seen on other peoples blogs make me drool...a LOT! But here in Canada, it is SOOO not available. I have even tried to get all of our local little book stores to order a copy in for me, but none of them can get it in either. Sad day, indeed. Have something sweet for me and if you're travelling to Nova Scotia, ever, please let me know so I can beg you to bring me a copy!
Today after work, errands, groceries and all the other stuff, I was pretty sleepy. So for dinner tonight we had something from a *GASP* BOX! I know, I know, but I love these little bundles of joy. Totally vegan, canadian made potato croquettes. A delish and garlicky outer shell houses a smooshy, mooshy warm inside of perfectly spiced yukon gold potato. Mmm.
You can probably tell by the rushed nature of this photo that we were hungry!
We had these with a salad of romaine, tomato, grapes, pumpkin seeds, chickpeas and top secret poppyseed dressing. We also had steamed broccoli and carrots with hummus. Mmmm. For a busy day, it was a great dinner. Tomorrow we're heading out to our most favourite local restaurant for our V-Day Dinner. We love each other all year 'round, so Valentine's Day is pretty much a none-issue around here. But its fun to be romantic and eat out sometimes, so tomorrow it is! Hopefully, I will have some photos for you (of food, not mushy romantic scenes. HA!).
Now, go make chickpea cutlets! Run!
