A different kind of food

So, this isn't about cooking (yet), but it's still food. These are my first tiny lil' tomatoes. Hopefully someday soon they'll be big yummy tomatoes in my bellly.

PETA's "Sloppy Joes"

I certainly don't agree with everything that PETA does (as I, too, would swat a fly that was buzzing around and getting in my face and stuff), but they did a great job with their two-week sample vegan menus. I found it a while back while obsessively trying to find new things to make and working out a schedule for the week's meals. You can find it on their website for free: I printed the whole 20+ page PDF and have made several of the recipes in the last month or so.

What you see above is the "cookbook's" version of sloppy joes. I subbed in frozen veggie burger crumbles in place of the tofu called for, because, for being a vegetarian, I don't care so much for tofu. They were really tasty, especially served up on potato buns. I will definitely be making these all of the time.

Thank you again, PETA, for thinking for me.
