never too busy to cook

1. sandwich on homemade bread with lettuce, onion, tomato, tofu, olives, and guacamole

2. wheat rotini with veggies stir fried in nutritional yeast

2. basmati rice, lentils, and stir fried veggies

4. pizza on homemade wheat crust, with tofu, bell pepper, onion, and mushroom

5. homemade pumpkin pie granola with soy milk

6. wheat rotini with stir fried veggies and tomato sauce

7. peanut butter chocolate chip cookies...cookie dough was vegan, the chips were not this time

8. salad with roasted red pepper hummus, sunflower seeds, and tofu

9. vegan chicken and dumplings...soooooo good...will write up a recipe asap!

10. amazing salad with homemade croutons and green olives

Amidst the busyness I have still had time for cooking (and these photographs are snapped awfully quickly with only available light from a window or a certain adjustable fluorescent lamp, let me tell you!) because I have put all of my other hobbies on hold until my senior show is up (sewing, reading, drawing, jewelry-making, the list goes on, oy...sometimes even laundry!). I still have to eat, however, and I just really don't believe in having premade, overly processed food at every meal. And so I continue to cook. Easy things, mostly. After my show is up, I have a ton of recipes I have been waiting to try.
