Our neighborhood seems to attract bunnies in the spring, and this year we think we have a warren* in our backyard! Ken took some photos of this cute bun bun.
Eee! I want to love him and squeeze him and call him George! But I doubt the bunny would be cool with that.
Anyway, I made more food this week. Gotta eat, right?
Probably the healthiest dinner we had this week was Moroccan Stew from The Vegan Table. This was a nice way to have sweet potatoes with a bit of sweet spice. I served it over quinoa for some extra protein. The recipe is formally called Saffron Spiked Moroccan Stew, but I skipped the saffron. I just couldn't justify buying saffron threads for this one dish when I probably wouldn't use them again anytime soon. But hey, it was still a great stew!
I haven't made anything from Yellow Rose Recipes in a while, so I whipped up the fast and easy recipe for Sloppy Joannas. Like all of the recipes I've made from YRR, these are just mighty fine. Nothing fancy, just easy and tasty. I was kinda sad to hear that YRR author Joanna Vaught will no longer be writing cookbooks, but I totally understand why. So I'll just have to enjoy her upcoming zine, and keep cookin' from YRR.
Another cookbook that's been out a while that I love everything I make from is Cozy Inside. I purchased the pdf download for a measly eight bucks, and I get plenty of kitchen mileage out of it. I found probably the most fattening dish I've ever eaten in this cookbook though, the recipe for Pasta Alfredo. THIS IS AWESOME. I don't even care that the sauce contains an entire tub of Tofutti cream cheese, because it is damned fabulous! Pictures do not do this sauce justice, believe me.
I'm sort of glad that the leftovers for this are all gone now, because that was a whole lot of fat and calories. But so worth it, ya'll.
Something else nice that happened this week was May 19th. Ken and I met on May 19th, 2001. Yeah, we celebrate lots of anniversaries because we are dorks. So we went out to dinner to celebrate eight years of knowing each other. <3
The vegan Classic Chocolate Cake is always the best part about eating at Cafe Sunflower. Coincidentally, we had this same cake made as our wedding cake in 2004! You can see Ken's piece of strawberry cake in the background, also a delicious cake selection.
I love you, sweets!
