When I got home, I was famished so I made a quick Tofurky sandwich and used the new mayo.
I also mixed some with sriracha for a dipping sauce for my vegan nuggets that night. Amazing. Here's the thing, although Just Mayo is available at most if not all Targets, and other groceries, not every town has a Target. And, Just Mayo is a new company that not everyone has heard of, where as Hellmen's has been around for FOREVER! And the jar looks very harmless, so I can see Sally from Iowa buying it for her family because she's been reading about organics lately. It seems to me that they are focusing more on the organic, no weird ingredients benefits versus it being vegan, which is fine. But, when Sally and her family fall in love with this mayo, and read the fine print and realize it's freaking VEGAN, and delicious, minds are open, and curiosity sets in. So, of course I will always be a Just Mayo loyalist, but this stuff is great, and I am glad I voted with my measly dollars to let Unilever know they should continue to explore the kinder, vegan side of food.
In more I love Seattle news, yesterday I looked out of my window and was quite surprised by the van in the parking lot. Hello seventies mellow mood music!
|I zoomed in!|
For dinner, I attempted fresh spring rolls. Fail. I felt confident because I've really been improving my sushi roll game, so I wrongly thought I was a "roller"! These suckers were a gloopy, loose mess! I gave up after three rolls because I didn't want to waste the ingredients, and made a spring roll bowl. I had made a delicious peanut dipping sauce(Thanks Martha Stewart) so I just poured it on top of my bowl with some sriracha, and it was delicious!
And of course, because I am surrounded by total cuteness all the time(when I'm home) I have to leave you with this picture. They remind me of those hokey but sweet precious moments stuff they sell at Hallmark stores.
