Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner…and then some

In the kitchen at Di's House

Catching Up

I’ve been accumulating photos and not posting, so here goes.  Tonight we had carrot fries, cooked in the air fryer.  I used nutritional yeast instead of parmesan.  They weren’t crispy but were delicious.  I’ll definitely make them again, probably try the parmesan.


Over the weekend I made a three bean chile stew.  This had garbanzos, red beans and black beans.


Veggies wereh green pepper, onion, garlic, carrots, sweet potato, fire-roasted tomatoes, with cumin, chile, paprika, salt and pepper for seasoning.


Served over rice.  Nothing fancy but comforting.


I’ve been reading a story about Beyond’s Beast Burger in a “Best Food Writing” compilation.  I have the book on my phone so read just a little at a time, like when I’m standing in line.  I gave them a try for Meatless Monday.  They are pricey, about $5 for 2.


I cooked them on my Foreman Grill.  Towards the end of cooking, they emitted a weird smell.  I don’t know if it was the smoke flavoring.  The odor did not come across in the flavor, fortunately.


Served them on regular buns with cheese, so not vegan, but the burgers themselves are vegan.  They were really good.  Reminded me of what Boca Burgers tasted like when they first came out.  (They don’t seem as good as they used to be, at least to me.)  I wish the Beast Burgers weren’t so expensive.  They will be a splurge.


We had air-fried French fries with them, along with candied jalapenos.  I like pickled jalapenos better.  The candied ones did not have any salt and I think that rounds out the flavor better.

I’m caught up for now!  Thank you to everyone who takes the time to read my blog.  I’m surprised whenever I am notified that someone “likes” a post or someone I’ve never heard of starts following the blog.  I appreciate it!

Meatless Monday -Mongolian Soy Curls

Easy 20 minute dinner tonight.  I sautéed celery, peppers, carrots and soy curls, then added ginger and garlic.the sauce was about 2 tablespoons each of soy sauce and water, a bit of hoisin and sambal oelek, plus cornstarch for thickening.  Yum.
