National chocolate cake day

Winner winner chocolate cake dinner!! And yes, I might have had chocolate cake for dinner. Why not? Chocolate comes from a bean and beans are a part the food groups right? I should really draw you Brandie’s food pyramid, you could get behind that one ūüėČ

I turned to Isa does it, I haven’t cooked anything from it in a long time and it’s a good book.

Look at this……

 

I only wanted a bite of it, ended up eating the whole slice ¬†it’s good! But don’t take my word for it, head over to¬†Post punk kitchen, Isa has the recipe for you!!

My son said “Mom, you’re always celebrating national days- I love it, we should do this every day!” FYI, tomorrow is national have fun at work day- so I think I’ll play on social media all day long ¬†ūüėČ

What is your favourite flavour of cake?

Menu plan Jan 25-31

This week I’m only going to focus on recipes by Ginny, vegan in the freezer as I’m in the middle of other projects. Next week I’m going to be posting recipes by Jill the veggie queen.

White pizza sauce

Brown rice and broccoli casserole

Chili pasta casserole

I’m going to use the white sauce for pizza, also for pasta with stir fried veggies- frozen or fresh veggies what I can buy that doesn’t cost me an arm and a leg. The casserole dishes can be revamped and turned in burrito’s.

Use hostage #veganinthefreezer so we can see what you’re cooking up!

 

How are you going to use these dishes as left over? As is? Or are you going to get creative? Let us know and drop us a line or two ūüôā

 

 

Pizza Pie Get In My Mouth

Sometimes surfing SM sites can be very dangerous, you don’t know what is out there – lurking, in the shadows, just waiting and waiting and waiting to lure you in…. with offers of pleasure, promises of never letting you down- enticing photo’s. Some times it’s a ¬†HUGE let down. Other times, it’s pure bliss.

Yesterday, I came across a post that brought me pure bliss. I could taste the flavours before even trying it. As I read, I knew I needed to make pizza. That’s right! What was waiting for me yesterday was a recipe for a tangy garlicky white pizza¬†sauce.

Around the same time I was reading it, Kayla calls. I tell her all about it. (yes, we chat about food, boys, and clothes all the time like teenagers. Only we’re old enough to know better, yet young enough to do it again) I said the sauce is easy to make, and dough is simple. She’s like “for you maybe……” I said “well it is, if you have an hour to let it rise, then you can do this easily without any type of planning.” She says “You have a dough maker?” I paused, and answered “No, but I do have my Kitchen Aid stand mixer to do all the work for me.” Yeah, sometimes I forget about those who don’t have certain kitchen gadgets. I love my kitchen toys and would DIE without them.

I’m going to share with you, where I found this masterpiece. Go over to Ginny’s blog aka vegan in the freezer for Vegan white pizza sauce¬†and make some. Tomorrow is Friday, so movie and pizza date night.

Check this out. I put broccoli, onion, Brussels sprouts, green peppers¬†and pineapple on it. The sweetness from the pineapple and the tang from the sauce really compliments each other. I really want to stuff my face with the whole pizza. But I did show some will power not to eat all of it. That was hard to do. Here’s some pics to tease your taste buds. Go ahead and lick the screen, I know your are drooling right about now ūüėČ

 

Left to right: Before the oven, hot out of the oven (yes, I couldn’t wait for it to cool. My finger tips may or may not have been injured in the process- but hey, hot pizza) and I took some of the white pizza sauce and drizzled it on the slice to the left, and took left over homemade pizza sauce and kinda just plunked it on the pizza. I had some of my garlic dip left over (I know right? so surprising).¬†Each bite I took was power packed¬†with ¬†delightful flavour bliss. Some say chocolate is better than sex? WRONG- this pizza is better than sex.

Left to right: Me dipping my pizza into the dip, and the white sauce. I didn’t have any fresh basil, so I used dried. I also used my vitamix as I didn’t pre soak the nuts. Next time I think I will use a few cloves of garlic instead of powered. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Do you like red or white sauce on your pizza?
