impending apocalypse

alrighty so, i'm in the city camping out at my best friend's house for the weekend. i've baked lots, have lots of salads & the freezers are stocked to high heaven. however, if i wake up & it's a complete gong show, i'm going to spend the day making snowmen & having snowball fights and not driving to the market.


i really hope to be there tomorrow but i can't make any promises.

ok so i made a lot of food this week nonetheless. it was a veritable vegan extravaganza. it's been awhile, but vegan lasagna is back on the menu. it starts off with a really robust tomato sauce with mushrooms, peppers, zucchini, eggplant, olives, capers & fresh herbs. then it's layered with pasta & a crumbled tofu, swiss chard & nutritional yeast mixture and finished with cauliflower 'bechamel' and fresh tomatoes.

these took FOREVER to make!

i also made a giant batch of vegan curry this week. it features potatoes, sweet potatoes, cauliflower, green beans, spinach & tomatoes. the curry itself has lots of cumin, coriander, coconut milk, lime & cilantro and it's served with quinoa & basmati rice.

small $9 large $18

there are also two new batches of soup this week. one is roasted red pepper, tomato & sweet potato. it has lime, chipotle, cilantro & a touch of sour cream. it's vegetarian & gluten-free but not vegan. the other is seafood chowder, it has mussels, haddock, tilapia, smoked haddock, potatoes and dill in a clam broth.

all soups are $7/500ml portion

since the forecast is so dire, i cut down the salads a little. there are only three flavours this week - sweet potato, broccoli & beet.

in anticipation of the storm i cut down sweet production a fair bit this week. the selection will be almost the same but not in the usual quantities. there are brownies, bars, cheesecakes, cookies & cupcakes. i skipped the tarts since i won't be able to make meringue in the morning.

ok sleep tight & let's hope this storm doesn't live up to its hype.
