Anything Tastes Good With Lime Pickle...and a W.I.P. "Wednesday"
I love Shellyfish's blog. Love with a capital heart. So, I hope she will forgive me for not getting a chance to post my W.I.P. until this morning. This little dollie has come all the way from England, and has many, many friends. These little 'Clothkits' have everything - the stuffing, the thread, and the pattern. I admit it takes some of the creativity out of projects, but the doll was too cute not to put together. This company also makes the most adorable 'grown up' clothes!
Our quiet little New Year's Eve (no wild vegan parties over here this year) was complete with each of us crafting our own vegan pizza. Yum!
In the morning, I pulled together all the bits and pieces in the fridge and made a pretty descent Tofu Scramble. I, of course, had mine with Lime Pickle. I can NOT get enough Lime Pickle these days.
Despite efforts to have a nice dinner out, we were plotted against by those who thought they needed the night off. In the end we each went for something a little different - K had a veg*n pasta plate, while I went for the experimental and tried a new Mac n' Chreese. It was.....acceptable...and bordered on 'good' with the Lime Pickle. But, don't let me be a judge - I have never been good buddies with any vegan cheese - EVER! Having grown up with a mom that could make the BEST mac n cheese on the planet, my palate is forever forged in the memory of those old school recipes.
What was yummy was the cucumber and mint sandwich I threw together (I had suspicions that I was going to be disappointed). I just diced the cucumber, mixed in 1 TBSP of Hummus, and 1 TBSP of Ks homemade aubergine dip and added some mint. Presto! A fresh and tasty treat in the middle of a frozen tundra kind of night!
