I actually had pumpkin to use up in the fridge (this is a rare occurance – normally I go through a giant can alarmingly quickly), so I made some vegan pumpkin chocolate chip muffins to bring along to a dinner.
Um yeah, I don’t know what I did wrong, but they turned out very dry and rubbery 😦 I shan’t share the recipe, since the result was so lacklustre.
Dinner was delicious, though! Somehow it took several hours to make, but ’twas well worth it. White bean + roasted garlic soup (from Vegan with a Vengeance):
Jerk seitan from the same cookbook:
I was actually too full to eat the pudding (WHAT? I’m never too full usually), but I got a good taste from licking the mixing bowl. It was delicious.
Man I love vintage shopping. Last Thursday was the first of two holiday shopping nights on North Dalhousie, with discounts, free food and wine, and donations going towards Dress for Success 🙂
I found some welcome additions to my collection of vintage earrings – some of which will be given away as gifts –
A perfect going-out purse and shoes –
And a lace-trimmed cardigan…I’d been searching for one for ages (this one was bought new from Victoire).
What a haul!
Went to a GREAT show last night at Capital Music Hall – check out this song, it’s a beauty (love the video as well)
And now, it is time for another treadmill run! Trying to build up some endurance so I can run FOR REALS this spring.
