Vegan Week: Day 1

But first a flashback to yesterday's lunch, a happier time, an oinker time...

A breakfast burrito that made my heart pitter patter knowing it'd be a week until I get to indulge in these lovely beauties again.  Last night I thought I was up for this mission.  This morning, I wasn't so sure.  But thankfully I already enjoy soy creamer, so I wasn't as bitchy as I could have been.

Breakfast included soymilk-based Cream of Wheat, alongside my second cup of coffee for the morning.  I was up before Mr. Wookie, so I made the happy sauce a bit stronger than usual.  This may or may not have resulted in my ass being extra retarded/perky/insane.

But then my lunch I was starving.  And in a conundrum.  I needed to go grocery shopping, but I was expecting my produce delivery anytime.  So I held out.  And snacked on non-butter popcorn.  Snore.  But so far, so good in the Vegan Week mindset.

Then produce came, along with a Facebook gem.  I was introduced to a fantastic vegan website.  Any vegans out there?  Well, hit up Post Punk Kitchen.

What was on the menu: Chickpea Rice Soup with Cabbage.  Thank you produce delivery for the cabbage and carrot.  I did have to continue onto the store for the garbanzo beans and garlic (we were out of both along with other essentials).

And sorry the carrot looks semi-phallic.

And after today, I never want to be a food blogger.  So many pictures!

I love when dinners take only 15 minutes to make.

It...was...surprisingly good.  Shockingly good.  Mr. Wookie had a small bowl.  "It could use some chicken," he said.  I agree.  But it wasn't as bad as I thought.  And it filled me up.  I was full after it?  WTH?

And thanks to the produce delivery also for the cukes.  A little rice wine vinegar made them delicious.  Perfect ending to Day 1 of Vegan Week. Well...almost.  The 3 best vegan ingredients known to man?  Vodka, tonic, and lemon juice.  Amen.
