this past weekend was our first weekend in over a month that we didn’t have any plans. so we filled it with laziness and cooking.
eric got me a dehydrator for christmas, so we planned on putting it to use over the weekend. i had seen eggplant bacon on a lot of blogs and really wanted to make it.
i don’t have a mandolin so slicing all the eggplant was sort of a pain.
then i let it marinated for about 2 hours.
i’m happy to report that it turned out well, not exactly bacon-esque, but still good.
we also dehydrator some tofu and i made onion bread, which turned out way too onion-y.
the weather was really nice saturday and the cats sunbathed all day.
eric rode his bike while i went running.
we ended up going out to dinner at a local vegan chinese restaurant with some of eric’s car/bike friends. no photos, but i am embarrassed by the amount of food we ate.
i’ve been itching to bake lately, but we still have a ton of leftover desserts from vegan treats. i settled on biscuits. i made the whole wheat one’s from alicia silverstone’s new book the kind life, but i am sad to say they weren’t that great.
we watched way too many episodes of dexter all day (we just started watching and are obsessed!) then decided on pizza for dinner.
eric got started on marinara, which he plans to use for lasagna later.
and he also prepped the pizza dough.
we usually make two separate, large pizzas, for us to eat throughout the week.
i made my pizza with potatoes, squash and kale.
and eric went with a classic, his marinara, vegan cheese and basil.
and then we watched more dexter.
