Happy Friday! We've only made a few proper meals this week. Otherwise, we've been eating non-blog worthy like veggie burgers with sauteed peppers, onions and mushrooms, chips and salsa, quesadillas, and other meal leftovers.
Here's an idea I got from watching the new Rachael Ray talk show. It's a ravioli lasagna and quite easy to make. Instead of doing a sauce from scratch, Ryan used a canned sauce with Morningstar Farms "beef" crumbles and layered it in a dish with cooked ravoli and topped it with mozzarella cheese. It's suggested as a great potluck dish because you just pop it in the oven for 10 minutes once you arrive.
Then, Ryan treated me to a dessert of bananas wrapped in tortillas, crisped up in some oil and drizzled with a brown sugar-butter sauce. We served it alongside Dreena's Banana Ice Cream. Yum!
Last night I decided to use up the leftover seitan which I had put in the freezer a few weeks ago. I went with Vivacious Vegan's idea of breading it and finishing it with an orange juice/soy sauce combo. It was great! I was craving some veggies too, so added green beans to the meal.
On Wednesday, Catherine from Food Snob and I had a blogger meet-up at the Mall of America. It was really cool to meet her and we spent 2 1/2 hours shopping together...well, I admit, I did all the shopping while Catherine showed great restraint. We had a fantastic time and will be meeting up again in the near future.
On a side note, I start a new job on Monday (yes, I resigned from my old job and have had a few days off). I'm not sure how that is going to affect my cooking and blogging, but we'll see what the first few weeks hold. Wish me luck!
