Today I decided we needed to get out. Well, it’s not like I decided spur of the moment. I’ve had this plan for a couple of weeks. But today we went to the Central Florida Veg Fest. We walked around, ate some food, and got some sun. I walked over two miles today, which is unheard of from me! Before the festival, the Kid had an appointment at Floyd 99’s barbershop. Except we went to the wrong one! There’s one south of downtown, and one just north of downtown. They said people get them confused all the time, and honored his appointment, so yay.
So at the festival, I ate a buffalo chicken (chik’n, of course) meatball sub w/ vegan bleu cheese on a gluten free roll. And sorry, but the name of the people who made it for me is lost, but I’ll post a pic of the sub below! We also had fresh squeezed strawberry lemonade. We didn’t buy anything, but we saw a TON of dogs! The Kid was all about that (he’s 18, but he still loves puppies, lol). Anyway, after the festival, we went to Target to pick up house stuff, and the pharmacy was offering free flu shots (and a $5 gift certificate if you did) so we got ours.
Tonight I tried something new and it turned out AMAZING (pics below). Vegan cheese sauce made out of potatoes, carrots and nutritional yeast. I used this recipe, and I tweaked it a little, because like I said in an earlier post, I can’t follow directions to save my life. I probably made more than the recipe called for, because I used three medium potatoes and two carrots. I also cut out the oil and used more water (the water I used to steam the veggies in). It turned out to be about a liter of sauce. But, please, be smarter than me and use the recipe! We started dipping chips in it, but you know what we used most of it for? Macaroni and cheese! We mixed it up with some pasta and wow was it good. We still have about two cups left, so I’ll probably use it as dip again tomorrow.
So that was my day. Now I’m home, and listening to Superfruit, and drinking lemonade, and might turn on a hockey game.
