The above breakfast was really good. I made blueberry waffles topped with some local maple syrup. I helped collect the sap last year that turned into this syrup. I also made an orange, mango, and carrot smoothie with the vitamix which turned out amazing. I’ve already made it again.
I started last week making pizzas from scratch. I made a whole wheat crust and topped it with some tomato chutney. Chutney is amazing on pizza! I’m not really interested in regular tomato sauce anymore now that my taste buds have awoken to chutney.
Looking over this last week’s photos, I realized I spent more time cooking than going out. A nice change. The waffles above I made from scratch. My girlfriend loves waffles, so I bought a waffle iron and set out to learn to make them.
Last night I had the pleasure of participating in the Herbivorous Butcher kickstarter launch party. They have been selling out their meat-free meats all summer at the Minneapolis farmer’s market. Their kickstarter is to open a store of their own and become the first vegan butcher shop in the country right here in Minneapolis!
