Moving sorta sucks the life blood out of you, and then there's the whole thing about making friends with a new kitchen. I'm struggling with the kitchen part. I didn't know this was possible, but the stove in our rental (we'll be in New Orleans for another four months or so) is a mad beast. I brought my handy-dandy oven thermometer with me to this new place (because I am suspicious of ovens as it is), set it in place, turned the dial to 350F and watched the oven temperature rise above 600F! I didn't even know that was possible in a home oven, someone needs to bring some pizza dough over here STAT. Anyway, yea. I've mostly got things unpacked, but am having trouble stuffing the last of the pantry items away. We have a lot to eat before we head west, that's the truth.
Hopefully, I'll have some interesting things to post soon. I made some kick ass mushroom risotto yesterday, and over the weekend I whipped together peanut butter 'n chocolate asteroids for our TVP (totally vegan potluck).
These were fun and super fast. Just mix together a bit of vegan butter, some peanut butter, vanilla, cereal of your choice (I used some organic gluten free peanut butter balls) and powdered sugar. If it's too dry, add a tiny bit of maple syrup or more peanut butter. Roll the dough into balls and freeze. Meanwhile, melt some chocolate chips over a double boiler, dip the balls in the melted chocolate and then press into more cereal and freeze again so the chocolate sets up. Quick n' Fun.
