Oh my word.
Thursday I made these dough balls, with my only variations being to use a teaspoon of salt instead of a 1/2 teaspoon (based on one of the comments), the magic vanilla bean paste in place of the extract, and I used Earth Balance for the first batch, realized I needed to make more but was out of Earth Balance, so I used some Smart Balance Light that I had on hand. Both sets were divine.
The dough chillin’ in the fridge.
Gettin’ ready for hot oven lovin’.
They were the perfect amount of not-sweet and so doughy in the middle.
I also made another round of the no-bake cookies I made the other day.
I switched up my usual tofu pho order to try something else last night.
We went to Pho Hoang this time, my old roommate’s family’s restaurant, and rather than get the pho with the beef broth I got another kind of soup with chicken/pork broth, tofu, and lots of veggies including baby bok choy, one of my favorites. This did not disappoint and really hit the spot last night, as usual. I will definitely be ordering this again.
Tonight Alex and I went to dinner (an awesome vegetarian curry place called Curry in a Hurry, where I completely neglected to photograph my dinner!) and then for frozen yogurt, where I got this artificial color-laden delicacy.
My flavors from the top going clockwise are peanut butter, a pistachio/taro swirl, and red velvet cake (!) with some Reese’s Pieces. A helluva combination if I do say so myself! Worth every dairy-filled bite. 🙂
Head on over to Katie’s vegan hug post if you haven’t seen it yet… you can catch me canoodling with a very special vegan ingredient.
I hope you all had a relaxing and rejuvenating Sunday. Me? I did two practice massages on friends that live on opposite sides of town, some homework, dinner with the guy, cartoons cuddled on the couch with him and the pups, and now it is bedtime-thirty!
Anyone traveling this week for Christmas?
