In order to avoid the blog posting calamity that was yesterday, I will try composing my post on Word, saving and then copying and pasting it to my post for the day. It still doesn’t solve the problem of everything freezing when I am trying to copy a link or upload a picture from my computer to my blog file, but perhaps this will all become clear to me as time goes on (I hope, I hope, I hope). In the meantime, my I.T. tech (the Busy Happy Vegan) is going to try to help me out with this issue. If anybody out there has the solution, by all means, please fill me in. I would be eternally grateful.
So I was whining to my daughter last nite-I am not sure that I can do a post every day-things go wrong, other stuff gets in the way, my computer skills are not up to par etc., etc. But I really want to post every day. I have so much to learn and share, and posting on my blog helps me do this. Besides, it is fun!! She suggested that some days I write a very short post. Can I do that? Will it work?-because when I finally get writing, I can’t stop. Let’s try it out.
We live in a society that is exceedingly busy. There is an awful lot of hustle, bustle out there.
So when I am having a particularly busy day and supper is looming, I have some go to vegan meals that fit the bill. Check this one out.
Edamame and Corn Salad from Veganomicon by Moskowitz and Romero (Did you notice how I used only their surnames in order to cut the time spent writing this post and it seemed to work, I think, don’t you? LOL) page 82
The first step, sitting pretty in a white bowl!
Toasted sunflower seeds and salad dressing
Edamame, corn, sunflower seeds, …
toasted sesame oil, tamari sauce, rice wine vinegar.
More of Nature’s
Tomatoes and Boston and Romaine
lettuce from Lufa Farms and Parsley from the grocery store.
Corn and Edamame…
simmering for a few minutes
Corn, Edamame and Seeds
toasted sesame oil, tamari sauce, rice wine vinegar, sitting pretty in one of my favorite bowls that belonged to my mom, one of my favorite people.
And Voila, supper is ready.
Looks delicious, don’t you think?
P.S. I made two small changes in this recipe. I used sunflower seeds instead of sesame seeds and I mixed the Corn and Edamame Salad into my greens and tomato rather than serving it on top .
I was out of sesame seeds one day, so I substituted with sunflower seeds. I like the result. I find the sunflower seeds more distinct, adding a flavour and a crunch (I love the crunch) that I don’t get with sesame seeds. Check the recipe for other serving suggestions.
GRAMMIE ANNIE’S VEGAN VIEW
A wonderful vegan meal is only a few fresh ingredients away. The bounty that nature provides us in her greens, her beans, her fruits and veggies (grains too) guarantee a beautiful tasty and healthy meal to tickle our taste buds and support our good health, all the while respecting the non human animals whose lives were spared in the making and enjoyment of this meal.
Until next time,
May all beings be happy and free.
