I don't have the world's best kitchen. Actually, the kitchen we had in our one-bedroom flat in Edinburgh was bigger and better-designed than ours. Ours, however, is significantly better-furnished.
I know all you really need is a wooden spoon, but I kind of adore cooking gadgets. Thankfully, the thief was obviously not much of a chef because he didn't take any of our kitchen stuff. It's already personal, but if that KitchenAid Stand Mixer had disappeared, he would have needed to flee the country, not just the state.
Anyway, I'm way excited that the wee boy is big enough to sit in a high chair, giving me a bit of freedom to cook.
But what to make???
Colleen, a mum-of-two who works full-time and still manages to keep a Martha Stewart home and a Food Network-worthy menu plan, stocked up our freezer last week with delicious vegan meals ranging from homemade hummus to chili. (I'm vegan these days because the wee boy pukes excessively and cries a lot when I eat dairy.) We are almost out of the ready-to-eat freezer meals, and I'm feeling the need to stock up on my own.
Somehow menu planning is still baffling to me. I found this website, which is a genius idea and does all the planning work for you, but 1) I don't have the money to sign up and 2) there isn't a vegan menu option anyway.
Help? Send me to your vegan Pinterest page maybe? Or any of your favorite one-pot meals? I think one-pot is all I can handle right now. It's been a while, folks.
I need to get back to food pictures and posts. These baby pix are getting old, right?
