Ha ha, what is it? International-Pancake-Craving-week? I just saw Katie's post. YAY for Pancakes!!!
Last night I wanted to make the Black Bean-Chili Jennifer posted on her blog until I realized I didn't have any beans. I'll buy some today and make it either tonight or tomorrow.
I also plan on trying a sun-dried tomato hummus recipe I found yesterday.
Since it's the end of the month and I'm pretty much broke I can't buy as much as I'd like. I love having a wide variety of vegetables in my fridge so whatever I decide I feel like having, I'll be able to make it.
But oh well I will get money in a few days so this weekend the Chili, Hummus and some self-baked bread(if I can get myself to finally try it) ought to do it.
So after my no-Chili-making-possible incident I decided on Blueberry and Raspberry Pancakes.
I used Anke's Saved-My-Day Almost-BRAT-Diet Pancakes recipe and adapted it a little. The dough was a bit thin so I added more flour(I used whole wheat), but either way they came out very flat. I didn't mind though.
Flat, fat, angular, quadratic... I don't care as long as it's a Pancake!
They tasted very good. I spread some plum puree on top which fit perfectly.
Somehow I never manage to leave the berries in the freezer until the dough is ready. This time it was very bad, the dough was a mix of green, blue and purple. Baked they looked black which I really liked. I don't mind the color anyway, but it's harder to convince people that this dark flat thing really is a delicious Pancake =p
Then I had leftover pears that needed to be used up so I added the following to the Golden Vanilla Cupcake recipe.
- 1 1/2 pear
- 1 cup raspberries
- 1/4 cup crushed almonds
They were luscious. I brought the rest to work with me and when I placed them next to my co-worker his eyes lit-up "Ohhh, cakes!" He liked them(the other one just passed by me nibbling on it declaring "Mhh, they're yummy!"). I didn't say anything about them being vegan though.
Neither did I tell my boyfriend yesterday(although if he was smart he knew I was lying to him).
Because when he arrived last night I was almost done with my pancakes and asked him if he wanted some. He suspiciously walked into the kitchen and glared at the pan "That's with soy milk, right?" "Just try them for gods sake, it's not going to kill you because it's soy milk!" He took a bite and wasn't grossed out, but he didn't say anything and left the rest to me.
So when the Cupcakes were ready I knew I had to lie to make him eat them. I offered one to him. "These are also with soy milk!?" "No, I used cows milk. I know you wouldn't eat them otherwise." So he did.
And I sat there and basked in my success, muahaha! You're right Katie, we are evil little vegans indeed. ;)
