Veg-Seitan Noodles w. Spicy Orange-Peanut Sauce
You know when you are at the end of the peanut butter jar and you though you mixed it really well put you didn't and it's a bit hard? Make peanut sauce out of it. All it needs is some other liquid and heat. One of my favorite liquids to use is orange juice. Luckily I had some on hand.
ingredients: peanut butter (chunky), orange juice, chili sauce, tamari
Usually I add garlic and ginger to my peanut sauces but I opted to add a ton of both ingredients to the noodle mixture along with red bell peppers, string beans and a sliced up seitan cutlet topped off with chopped salted peanuts.
Potato Pancakes w. Applesauce
The joy that potato pancakes brings to this apartment and it's inhabitants is crazy. We love em. We eat them a lot. Sometimes I even eat them with ketchup. I make so many that we eat them for breakfast or lunch the next day. These were just a simple potato, carrot, onion mixture. I love them w. parsnips as well.
HAPPY NEWS: We are moving!!!! We were just approved for a very spacious, large, including DINING ROOM!!! 2 bedroom apartment yesterday! I am so happy. I am sad as well because I love the apartment we are in but it's just a 1 bedroom and it's starting to get tight in here especially with Reno on the move now. She will have plenty of space to roam and roll. The only downside to the new place is no elevator (we will be on the third floor again) and no dishwasher like our current place has. But that's okay..we are doubling our living space.
We move April 1st.
