weekend eats

After all the house work we’ve been doing, we took the weekend off to relax and eat some good food.  I bought loads of fresh organic fruit and made a huge fruit salad for breakfast.

Later I made some bagels, because of this post, but I went with Isa Moskowits’ recipe instead. It is so dang awesome. Easy too, with  only 6 ingredients.  It does call for vital wheat gluten which you may not have on hand, but it makes them so soft and chewy. Make sure not to get gluten flour if you try these–it must be vital wheat gluten powder–there’s a big difference.

Then I made some Edamame Guacamole from Everyday Dish TV.   Avocados are super healthy, but this dip is even more healthy with the added protein and fiber from the edamame. So good!

Lastly, I made some berry trifles, which look and taste very good, but man were they ever a pain in the a**! First you make the cake layer, which was my favorite and best part, then the custard which NEVER thickened enough, then the berry fruit sauce and finally you have to assemble everything. If it weren’t for the custard not setting up, I probably would have been okay with everything. I am definitely making the cake part again. It was excellent. The best vegan white cake I’ve ever had. The recipe is from the book, Vegan Yum Yum by Lauren Ulm.

Now, I definitely have to exercise tomorrow to make up for all my good eating.  Hope you had a great weekend.
