So much for blogging more in the summer...

Well, I pretty much forgot to blog all summer. I've mostly just been throwing together sandwiches and going out to eat. I did manage to cook a little bit the other day, though, so I'll tell you about that. Tempeh bacon is one of my favorite things. I used to recipe from Vegan Brunch, which is just an improved upon version of the one in VwaV. Since I had some tempeh laying around that expired in June, I figured I should eat it.

Cookin'


Ready to eat


Doesn't that just look perfect? I just ate my third one, and I am sadly out of the tempeh. (I had two yesterday and one today).

As I said in a previous post, we grow our own tomatoes. My mom has probably two dozen tomato plants of various sizes in our garden. Unfortunately, this summer has been horrible for growing vegetables. It's one of the top 10 coldest/wettest summers on record here in New England. We've thrown out dozens and dozens of tomatoes because of bottom rot (or whatever it's called). There have been a few good tomatoes, so I managed to put some on these sandwiches. I should be utterly sick of tomatoes at this point, not longing for more fresh ones.

I'll have to look up that tempeh bacon recipe. Looks good.

I don't suppose you have tried/would write a review of the new veggie place over on Belmont St? Right up from Memorial? I think its chinese.. but I'm never over in that part of the city at lunchtime...

Actually, I was planning on it! Haha. It's really good, and everyday the menu is different. It's actually a Soul Food type place. I'll try to write something up in the next week or so.
