VeganMoFo: 100th post and a quiz.

This is my 100th post. T.V. shows usually make a big deal about their 100th episode so I feel like I should have made a cake or something. The problem is that today was a traveling day for me. Reno and I are at my parents house in south jersey for the holiday's and Peter arrives on Thursday. So not much was done food wise and I feel this is a good time to fill out the quiz that I've seen on a bunch of blogs.

1. Favorite non-dairy milk?

Silk soy milk, plain. I love it in my latte's and I love it super cold in my cereal in the a.m. I do love all non-dairy milks out there but soy is what I use most.

2. What are the top 3 dishes/recipes you are planning to cook?

I will say 3 dishes/recipes that I'm making for T.giving...Smlove Pie and Chickpea Cutlets from Veganomicon...and string beans w. pine nuts from some magazine.

3. Topping of choice for popcorn?

Olive oil and salt.

4. Most disastrous recipe/meal failure?

I know i've had them...lots of them..not just come to mind.

5. Favorite pickled item?

just your plain ol' pickled cucumbers.

6. How do you organize your recipes?

my own personal recipes are in many places. about 9 of them are actually on my computer in their own folder..the rest are in random notebooks scattered throughout my apartment not organized at all.

7. Compost, trash, or garbage disposal?

trash/recycle...i would love to compost but our apartment living would not suit that. i know that there are apartment way's to compost but it's just not for us at this time.

8. If you were stranded on an island and could only bring 3 foods…what would they be (don’t worry about how you’ll cook them)?

seitan, string beans, chocolate

9. Fondest food memory from your childhood?
hanging out in the kitchen with my grandfather when i was little. i use to help him in the kitchen..my favorite thing to do was whisk whatever needed or didn't need to be whisked.

10. Favorite vegan ice cream?

my own..Double Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream and Citrus-Cardamon Ice cream!

11. Most loved kitchen appliance?

my knives. i love them so.

12. Spice/herb you would die without?

Cumin and paprika.

13. Cookbook you have owned for the longest time?

I think the first cookbook I ever purchased was The Vegetarian Times Cookbook over a decade ago.

14. Favorite flavor of jam/jelly?

Grape jelly for my PB+J's. I can't have them with any other flavor.

15. Favorite vegan recipe to serve to an omni friend?

my seitan pie recipe. Filo dough filled w. meaty seitan and mashed potatoes.

16. Seitan, tofu, or tempeh?

no contest here....Seitan.

17. Favorite meal to cook (or time of day to cook)?

Now that I'm home all day with Reno I love to bring her into the kitchen in the early afternoon and have cooking marathons.

18. What is sitting on top of your refrigerator?

Wine rack, tons of food magazines, my ice cream maker, a stereo that we never use, my knife bag and sometimes my cat CB.

19. Name 3 items in your freezer without looking.

3 chipotle black bean veggie burgers, 2 ziplock bags of chili, 2 containers of carrot coconut soup w. lemongrass. all made by me.

20. What’s on your grocery list?

i don't have a current list...dish detergent would be on the list though.

21. Favorite grocery store?

Whole Foods..it's really all we have and I have 2 really close by. I would love to shop at Trader Joes more but they are not very close.

22. Name a recipe you’d love to veganize, but haven’t yet.

maybe walnut chicken or Hungarian goulash? i'm sure it's been done but i haven't done it.

23. Food blog you read the most (besides Isa’s because I know you check it every day). Or maybe the top 3?

See the long list of blogs to your right. I try to stop by most of them at least once a week and that's not even all that I read...i've just been to busy to update my links. Usually I just blog hop from one blog to another. It was a lot easier to read blogs more regularly before Reno was born..now I have to spread it out.

24. Favorite vegan candy/chocolate?

dark chocolate.

25. Most extravagant food item purchased lately?

Sweet and Sara's Marshmallows.

26. What was your favorite food BEFORE becoming veg*n?

Chicken Franchese (sp?)

yay, I love reading these surveys!!!! :0D

oooh, DO post photographs of the Smlove Pie, after you make it - I'm so intimidated by the multiple steps and ingredients in that recipe, that I must experience that decadent pie through fellow bloggers' photographs :0)

I too love seitan, Whole Foods, and Sweet & Sara's marshmallows (vanilla flavor)!!

Oh and as I'm typing out this comment, I'm watching 'America's Next Top Model' - I hope you're watching too!! :0)
