The weather outside’s delightful, and the fire is nonexistent. Sipping tea while I catch up with y’all. Must be fall! Must be fall! Must be Fall!
Apologies for the jingle, but these are words that actually came into my head. I am on a weather high because this was the second day in a row that my air conditioner was off. Wooo! All I want to do is curl up on the couch with my dogs and watch dvds. So, this roundup is brought to you by things-I’d-like-to-eat-while-having-Buffy-marathons. I suppose I’ll move over on the couch so you can come too.
I can’t think crisp weather without thinking chili. Jes over at Your Mom’s a Vegan (fabulous name, by the way) has some served up just the way I like it…with avocado! Not to play favorites or anything, but she’s doing amazing things with acorn squash as well!
The only thing that could rival chili on a day like today is some good lookin’ shepherd’s pie. Check out the one over at Wiecej Yofu. It’s in Polish, but there is an English version of the recipe. Seriously…check out the yumminess:
If you’re not down with making savory pies and chili has too much spice, why not have a little spaghetti? Vegan Today is making some and promised a bit for everybody…and it’s covered in nooch*! What, what?!
All this savory needs a little sweet. Am I right? Well, Vegan Whore has been baking up a storm and has a review (and pictures!) for The Vegan Cookie Connoisseur. If cookies aren’t your thing, seriously check out the fluffy gingerbread scones that Julia’s making over at Snarky Vegan. She’s even got some beer and cheddar Bisquick biscuits, yo. Of course, you have to wash down the sugar with even more sugar. Did you know there are places in the world that still have access to Vitasoy’s peppermint chocolate soymilk? My heart sank a bit when I saw the proof over at Thoughtful Vittles.
To soften the blow, I offer you this most delectable dish from Nicole at Mmm Mmm Vegan. It’s this creamy pasta sauce with rotini, broccoli, leeks, kalamatas, and a whole bunch of awesome!
Finally, I leave you with a most awesome documentation of a visit to Free Soul Caffé. Wok on the Wildside shows all the great goodies a person can get at this strictly vegan establishment. It all looks great, but I’d kill to live in this sandwich.
