When I got home from the library I was drenched, and needed cookies. The perfect scenario would have been to walk into my apartment to the smell of baking cookies, but this is no fairy tale. So, I baked my own vegan chocolate chip cookies. I went full cookie, I didn't mess around with applesauce or bananas. I used coconut oil. I needed vegan toll house style cookies. I used this recipe. I had the bright idea to add some roasted, salted sunflower seeds that needed to be used to the batter, and it worked out just like I wanted. It adds that lille bit of salt to the cookie. Yum.
|That was the first one I ate. Look at all of those melty chips!|
My plans for what I was going to make for dinner were ruined due to my poor planning, and so I decided to make mac and cheese! From a box! Boxed mac and cheese and chocolate chip cookies, plus lots of cats on a Saturday night. Could I be more of a cliche? I decided to try the pizza flavor of mac and cheese from So Delicious.
As all boxed mac and cheeses, it is super easy to prepare. Mix cooked pasta with some plant milk and plant butter and sauce packet and you have yourself a meal.I added some white beans that needed to be used, and they went perfectly. I don't know if pizza is what jumped to mind when I first tasted it, but it does have a slight tomato-y, Italian flavor.The sauce is thick and creamy, the pasta is a gluten free pasta so it holds it's shape and texture well. I added a little dash of Italian seasoning, and crushed red pepper to the top.
I have now had both their cheddar and now the pizza flavor and they are both tasty. I do prefer thecheddar, but that's more because I am a traditionalist when it comes to my mac and cheese. Both the pizza and cheddar flavors are gluten free for those of you with wheat sensitivities. It was creamy and cheese-y and warm and it really hit the spot. So Delicious has not made one single thing that I haven't really enjoyed. I love having quick foods like this available to us vegans too. And no weird food colorings here.
Have you tried any of the boxed vegan mac and cheeses?
