Well, after yesterday’s thanksgiving meal, I hope you all still have some sort of interest in pictures of food… because I have a bunch of them for you… 😉
mashed potatoes, maple baked tempeh, southern style kale, spaghetti squash.
(she wasn’t a huge fan of the squash, but neither was I)
pasta in creamy mushroom sauce.
(portabella, shitake, oyster)
left-over pizza snack.
mamas: aloo gobi.
baby’s. this one was definitely on the spicy ginger side.
I gave her as much cauliflower, potatoes, and peas as I could with as little ‘sauce’ as possible. I also mixed it with generous amounts of rice to lessen the burn. it looks gross, but it was delicious.
I wanted to hug Marlowe for this one. I was pretty certain she wouldn’t like it. the kale seemed extra bitter that day, but of course, she absolutely devoured it. I gave her seconds and thirds. my kid is seriously a super eater.
&no, the cilantro is not for show, she actually loves it too.
whole wheat pearl couscous with sauteed cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, zucchini, peas, corn, and thyme.

In response to some of the recent food/cooking questions I’ve received:
I do plan on hopefully and eventually posting a recipe for the white bean biscuit stew I posted a while back. The recipe I followed was not anywhere near as delicious as it could have been. I plan on working on it when I get a moment and posting (what I hopefully will think is) a better version.
Vegan cheese: I use follow your heart mozzarella
. I don’t use it often. And I don’t recommend it to gourmet cheese lovers. While, it is my favorite vegan cheese, it cannot be looked at as a cheese replacement (no vegan cheese can). As a vegan, I think it is best to stop relying on cheese in all your dishes. I use about one package every three weeks to a month. It goes bad fairly quickly and so, I choose to open it only when I have one certain meal planned: pizza… and occasionally: a grilled cheese. I guiltily end up wasting about one third of the package. Like I said, def. my favorite vegan cheese, but shouldn’t be used on any and every thing.
Cooking with a baby. How do I do it: I’d like to do a post on the ridiculousness that is ‘cooking and food blogging with a baby’. I’ve picked up a few tricks along the way, but basically: it’s hard. Really hard.
In other news: it’s official, Marlowe’s favorite food has gone from steamed tofu to cooked greens. If given the opportunity, she would eat a whole bunch of cooked kale in one sitting…. or swiss chard… or spinach…. or whatever kind of cooked green. Give this girl cooked greens!
I hope you all had a wonderful day, yesterday! Happy Friday!
