lots of pics - not much to say

Well, it has been a while and I have been cooking.. What the heck happened? Our internet was down for three days. Oh the horror! I think there where only two streets in town affected and we lived on one of them. It was pretty strange to live in the dark ages again. I found that things just cross my mind through out the day and I want to go google the answer, or find a recipe, or read y'all blogs for some dinner inspiration. Then the internet returned and the power went out. Anyway, here are some hi-lights from the week..

Nothing fancy here my baked mac and "cheese" and a big ol garden salad. Mr. Eli who is five exclaimed "THIS DINNER ROCKS" while shoveling it in "JUST ROCKS MY WORLD". What every mom wants to here!
BBQ tempeh w/ pineapple fried rice from the garden of vegan.
"chicken" pot pie I was in need of some good ol' fashion comfort food.
An Italian style soup loosely based on a recipe from the Complete Vegan Cookbook topped w/ some veganrella chedder. And home made 12 grain bread, I substitute some of the flour w/ almond meal and man is it good!

Friday night fun.. Well, I had a particularly hard day on Friday and my honey offered to pick up some take out to make the night easier. The problem is there just aren't any real vegan options for take out on our side of town besides a cheese-less Papa Murphy. Don't get me wrong we have done it but, I just wasn't in the mood for that. So, this is really just as easy, much cheaper and makes the kids just as happy. Win Win.
A real treat! Saturday morning slice of heaven! Honey made his vegan sourdough waffles and they are AWESOME! This is one of the few foods that the box -o- egg replacer gets used for and works really well in.

Wow, you've been busy making delicious food! That up-close shot of the waffle is terrific.

"Chicken" pot pie... It's been a long time since I've had such a thing. I should give that a try soon.

I'm glad everything is up and running as normal again!

The baked mac and cheese pic looks great! And I don't usually cook much breakfast food, just oatmeal, but if I did,that pic of the waffle would certainly inspire me.

What a great post! I've been away from commenting for almost a week and a half. Busy with work (both jobs) and everyday I just seem to run out of time. Mac n' Cheeeeeez! I've never tried to make a vegan version but would love to give it a go. I wouldn't tell hubby. Just serve and see what he says. If he couldn't tell the difference, then I'd know I had a hit. He's a KD man. (Kraft Dinner - in the US known as Kraft Macaroni and Cheese) gross, yes. This is also a man who insists on white bread. I keep trying!
I've never attempted tempeh and would really like to give it a go. And pineapple rice!? How was it?
Have a super weekend! Hope your power stays on for a while :o)

All that food looks so good! We're still wearing shorts and sandals here. When it cools off, I sure will give that chicken pot pie a try.

Do I see breaded tofu? I want to try that, but I was wondering how to keep the breading on without egg. Any hints?
