Yesterday I did some shopping and stocked up on things to have on hand when I don't feel like cooking or don't have much time. Meaning jarred stuff like a regular tomato basil sauce, baked beans in tomato sauce, spicy peperoni tomato sauce, sweet corn, lentils etc.
And after a long long time without it I got soy yogurt again: blueberry and raspberry vanilla, mhhh!
And you can not believe how I beamed with joy when I looked into the stores freezer and saw TOFUTTI ICE CREAM! I literally could've danced! Ha ha, I felt like grabbing the person standing next to me "They have vegan ice cream!!! WOOOHOOO!" just to have someone to share my joy with, even if they don't give a damn =p Finally I can have ice cream again and it's the perfect timing as it's getting pretty hot here. I've been wearing skirts the last three days and I'm usually someone who's always cold so that really says something ;)
Anyway, I settled on mango and passionfruit (will have to get chocolate and strawberry too when there's free space in the freezer again). It's delicious!!! I had actually planned to ask my boyfriend tonight if he'd like some mango ice cream and serve it to him with fresh mango and pomgrenate to see what he'd say (without telling him that it was vegan ice cream of course), but you can obviously tell that it's not dairy ice cream. So sadly no fooling today!
But I'll have this fruity treat for sure and I'll just shove a spoon with a big mango chunk in his mouth and see if he'll be able to get over himself and and ask for his own portion. Oh the evil plan, ha ha!
So anyway, after grocery shopping and cleaning out my cupboards I was happy about the fact that I still had tortillas and could use my new purchases.
Sadly I can't seem to find whole wheat tortillas anywhere which really bothers me. But these worked just aswell for a quick dinner. The lamb's lettucce I had meant to use had gone bad already so the tortilla was rather plain, but still filling and satisfying.
Baked beans mixed with a spicy peperoni sauce, seasoned with oregano & pepper, followed by fresh bell pepper strips, tomatoes and sweet corn.
The addition to my boyfriend's was a thin layer of the spicy sundried tomato-walnut paste under the beans and on top and whole peperoni inside. His was the hot version, mine the "better safe than sorry" mild version =p
My boyfriend told me he had a phase where he bought cans of baked beans and ate them plain all the time, all day long. Ha ha, so I'll definitely buy these more often!
Tonight I'll make pretty much the same, but take more time for the preparation. I have to use my avocado so guacamole will be made and I'll pimp the bean-peperoni sauce a little with fresh herbs and onions and garlic. And maybe unfreeze some rice and add more veggies (I'm thinking grilled... yummm, I love that pan!).
