Change of plans.

I accidentally locked myself out of the apartment last night.

And I had been so excited to make Pierogis & Borscht.
I was actually lucky because my mom brought me my keys after "only" forty minutes.

I was still so mad at myself, so instead of cooking what I had planned I settled for my moms Lamb's lettuce with Mango and threw myself together a quick spinach-broccoli-rice-bell pepper combination.

Tonight I'm going to bake some cupcakes. Probably the Golden Vanilla ones I've done before. They're for my ex's birthday.
But this time I will use either a blueberry or a raspberry filling, or a mix of both. And maybe a mocha ganache frosting. Mhh, not sure. Do you know any easy and quick to do toppings? I'd really appreciate any suggestions =)
Yumm, I hope they'll turn out well.

When I went grocery shopping a few nights ago I discovered a chocolate soy pudding which I bought in case I got a craving for chocolate.
For those who don't know, I'm a real onehunderedpercent chocoholic to my very core and I basically lived on chocolate and chocolate alone for several weeks damn often in the past. But obviously I can't eat Lindt chocolate every day anymore, boo =(
But anyway, it turned out to taste amazing. And I'm not even that much of a pudding fan. Some almonds on top and I had a rather healthy bedtime snack.

Hi lizzy,

try alpro soja dessert, or whatever the name is, for a chocolate fix. this is 100% "pudding", and the best there is to boot :-)

I too have added too much alpro soy creamer in the beginning, its a learning curve :-). I love that stuff, it is amazing and it contains so much less fat than dairy cream.

as for chocolate: try fair-trade chocolate (in "Weltläden"). they are very good quality, and some are dairy-free. or check out your local "Bioladen", they also have amazingly good things. give bitter chocolate a try, even if you don't like it at first your taste buds will adjust and then you'll like only this kind of chocolate.

Ooh, poor you getting locked out! I hope it wasn't cold... I was locked out once, and it was snowing outside (not fun!).

You're a chocoholic? I don't know how anyone can eat chocolate-- it's so gross (KIDDING!). Chocolate pudding is my favorite food, but they've discontinued my favorite brand :o( :o(. When I heard they were going to discontinue it, I went out and bought 160 pudding cups! So I still have some left, but can't get any more when this is all gone-- boo!

Almonds are always great too :o). At our Whole Foods Market, they sell yummy chocolate-covered almonds.

That sucks about getting locked out of your apartment. Where I live, if they have to come let you in, they charge you $25 (US dollars), seriously, not cool.

The Lamb's Lettuce Salad with Mango looks yummy, I have added to recipe to my ever-growing list of things to try. Would any other lettuce work in place of Lamb's lettuce, I have never heard of it or seen it at the store

Thanks for crossing your fingers for me that I will find another tasty chocolate pudding... this is actually the SECOND one to get discontinued on me! Well, actually, the first one I liked stopped being available in the US, so if I ever go over to Canada, I am going to have to stock up on THAT. Haha I can just imagine trying to explain to the border-patrol people why I have a trunk filled with chocolate puddings!

I just saw your comment on another blog about tricking people into eating tofu... I LOVE doing that too! Muahhahaha we are such evil little vegans ;o). Once I brought a coconut cream pie to a party and EVERYONE just loved it, so then when I told them it had tofu, they couldn't take their praise back! If I had told them beforehand that it had tofu, they either wouldn't have eaten it or they would have claimed to have hated it :o(
