After days of being absent this is a very random post, just this and that!
First of all: Sunday... what a day!
After wanting to go there for at least three months my buddy & I finally managed to go to Cupcake Berlin.
While my friend chose a Cookies & Cream Cupcake I went with the vegan Raspberry Delight.
I savoured the lonely little raspberry and I could've eaten many more (had it been my call the frosting tops would've been loaded with as many as possible, ha ha)!
I'm not a very big fan of frosting. But that pink buttercream top looked too pretty! I ate half of the frosting because I couldn't stand the taste of margarine anymore at some point which is pretty much all it tasted like.
And Jennifer, look! They have awesome fancy vintage plates like you =D
He got another one with Peanut Butter frosting.
All in all we decided to go there again, soon! The texture of the cupcakes was so light and fluffy!!!
Afterwards we went to Café V, my friend's uncle's restaurant.
I had a mixed salad with grilled veggies (& yogurt-balsamic dressing, not vegan =( but I totally craved this salad... yet I was rather disappointed in myself and felt quite guilty afterwards). I couldn't even come close to finishing it. Doesn't look so big to you?
Well then check out my knees for comparison =p The plate was loaded with lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, grilled zucchini, eggplant & bell pepper, olives, shredded carrots and arugula.
But I have to admit that I ate lots of the incredible tomato-garlic bread they served, because this bread seriously just hits the spot!!
I took the salad leftovers with me, but gave it to a homeless guy on the subway.
Dinner yesterday was delicious - my mom cooked for me! Bulgur cooked in some broth, a tomato-veggie side dish she had left over (this was perfect!) and grilled zucchini, bell pepper and eggplant. I had soy yogurt as a replacement for sour cream and I am honestly still amazed by what a perfect substitute it is (as there is no vegan sour cream to be found around here)!
Iceberg & red lamb's lettuce, scallions, carrot, cucumber, tomatoes and mango.
My best friend came back from Arizona so I baked Vcon's Chocolate Cake again. This time without blueberries, but with raspberry preserves and banana slices between the layers and VCTOTW's chocolate mousse. I'll post pictures some time soon!
I saved about 1 cup of the batter, mixed in maybe 1/4 cup blueberries and tried out my new silicone mini tartlett thingy & made 3 muffin sized ones with the leftover batter.
I'm in love! I'll definitely get a muffin sized version of this, too!
Bananas with leftover chocolate mousse and cashews. Wow, that was delicious!
And another Pancake dinner!
This time I had Cocoa Blueberry Pancakes with maple syrup and bananas because I didn't have anything else.
Dinner a few days ago was bulgur mixed with sauteed onions, garlic, broccoli, orange bell pepper, zucchini and scallions.
Side dishes were baked beans (made them before) and mashed avocado with tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, garlic & lime juice.
We also had a salad of iceberg lettucce, red lamb's lettucce, cucumber, tomato, orange bell pepper, carrot, red onions and sweet corn on the side.
Have a great Thursday everyone! =)
I'll try to catch up with all your posts asap!
