I'm definitely too talkie for Wordless Wednesdays, too clashy for What I Wore Wednesdays and maybe just lame enough to start
On to the zines! Today Amy Applesauce came over for a long overdue cook-date. After we walked vee for a long jaunt, we came home and fixed lunch from Mrs. Hubbard's spiffy 2007 Don't Eat Off the Sidewalk. Yes, she named her zine after a Cramps song, and no, I don't know which song. Although, I did see The Cramps play a tiny UT venue in the early 90s. Lux Interior wore black leggings and matching skyscraper-stilettos and climbed off and on the super-tall monitors throughout their entire set.
I knew going into DEOTS I wanted to make the Tempeh Wingz, 'cuz they're world famous, I'd never tried them before and they're unapologetically spelled with a zee. Amy wanted to make something sans soy, so we also whipped up Katie's Vegetable Fried Rice.

Here's a picture of our spread, I lightly dressed the wingz, for this photo 'cuz I wanted you to see how thick and crunchy the breading came out. Everything was really tasty, and I learned something new about xgfx cooking in the process. I bet you didn't know that brown rice cakes whizzed up in the ol' electric spice grinder resemble panko. Did ya, huh?
Katie's recipes are really simple to make, soul-comforting and easy on the eyes, too. You might not see it in the picture, but our Vegetable Fried Rice was a gorgeous double rainbow of delight. Stuffed full with: purple cabbage, cauliflower, portobello mushroom, onion, red pepper and broccoli. I'm looking forward to chugging leftovers for breakfast tomorrow.
