After living in the snow belt for several winters, I know more than anyone that rain is better than snow, but it has been raining non-stop for over two days! Like never ending. You think it stopped, only to discover that it's still misting. I am so much happier in Seattle than I was in Erie obviously, but my perfect climate is definitely a more sunny year round scene. Rain rain go away!
I was going to run to the store to get some Chao original slices for my horseradish mac and cheese, but I just couldn't get myself to the bus stop! I didn't even walk up my hill yesterday. I'm back on it today, even though it's raining harder than it was yesterday! Grrr. Anyway, I think Chao original is the best vegan cheese for my recipe, because it really kind of reminds me of baby Swiss, and I think baby Swiss and horseradish are a tasty combo! So hopefully today my desire to create this recipe can win over my desire to stay out of the rain.
I decided to make a nice big salad for dinner, because I needed an excuse to eat some more FYH vegan blue cheese dressing. I also had some BBQ gardein wings in my freezer, so it all worked out deliciously!
I piled my bowl with a head of Romaine, some iceberg for extra crunch, red pepper, avocado and sunflower seeds! Yum and yum. It was really satisfying, and everything went together perfectly.
I haven't had a single gardein product that I haven't loved. These would be great on a game day for sports fans. Serve these with the FYH blue cheese, and/or ranch, and I can't imagine any non vegan having a problem.
So, Friday i was tinkering around trying to learn stuff, and i downloaded and started an Instagram account, but so far I have ALOT to learn! My phone also doesn't really take Instagram worthy pictures, and I don't know what I'm doing yet, but i jumped in headfirst with this blog, and learned later, so I guess it's round two with Instagram. It's another lesson in patience for me. If I just breathe, and don't get all pissed, I can actually figure stuff out! The main problem I'm having right now is I can't log in from my computer, only my phone. And I downloaded from my computer. I need to do stuff with my profile, and I want to do it on my computer because to be honest I can't stand typing on my phone. I am in the minority I know, but I prefer buttons over touchscreen. I'm such a relic! But it feels good to challenge myself.
I hope everyone has a cozy Sunday!
