Breakfast, lunch & dinner, plus getting ready for Bake Sale for Haiti

I've been cooking but nothing too exciting.  I've also been holding off on baking due to all of the baking I'm going to be doing tomorrow.  Why do you ask?  The vegetarian/vegan meetup group of San Luis Obispo is getting together and we are having a bake sale for Haiti this Sat. the 30th, outside of Vons Grocery Store located on Broad St.  I figured we would get more help having it up their in SLO because most of the group is from that area.  I'm looking forward to meeting some of the people in the group to which I've not gotten a chance to as of yet.  Let's hope this is a success and I'll let everyone know how we did afterwards.

 
This morning I whipped up a tofu breakfast for my son do to being out of non-dairy milk, bagels, bread, (this was our last slice of bread), bananas, etc.  I have to get to the store today.  Since I had a short time to make this breakfast I thinly sliced up a sweet onion and potato, sauteed it in a pan with olive oil.  Then threw on some thyme and salt.  Set aside then in the same pan sauteed up some thinly sliced sprouted tofu and chard.  Next I added back the potatoes for a quick reheat and wallah!  A yummy filling breakfast.  Oh and 1 piece of toast! :)


You know that tempeh salad I made the other day and had it in a salad?  This is how I ate it the next day.  One toasted spelt english muffin(these muffins rock)!  Smeared on some avocado, lettuce, tempeh salad and topped with a pretty red roma tomato.   The tomato was pretty tasty so what I didn't put on the sandwich  I just ate.

Since it's been rather cold in the evenings I made some chilli since I haven't made it in a while.  This is a sweet potato chilli with kidney beans, cannelini and a little bit of black beans.  Chilli always hits the spot and makes me all warm inside. It always taste great the next day as well.  So I leave you this and will be back soon!
Oh, quite a while ago I had made some coconut cookies that I never posted or at least never posted the recipe.  What made me think of this is because I was just looking through some recipes and stumbled upon the coconut cookie recipe.  So I'll be posting about them next post!  Until then.  Have a great day!

  2. you are too awesome to bake up lots of goodies for the bakesale for Haiti, JoLynn! yay! i look forward to reading about what you make & drooling over all the pictures. your tofu breakfast looks like one rock'n way to start the day. swiss chard is one of my favorite greens, and adding in the potatoes sounds soooo super good. i need to find myself some of that sprouted tofu. i keep forgetting! tempeh salad is one of my favorites. we used to make tvp salad, but the tempeh won in taste and texture. and to think there was a time when i didn't like tempeh. ah ha ha! my tastebuds are more rational now. your chili looks great - i love the sweet potatoes in there. that's what i love about chili too - it warms you up and makes for the most delicious leftovers! we love to make nachos with leftover chili. mmmmmmm! rock out the bake sale and have an awesome weekend! i look forward to the coconut cookie recipe. squeeeee!
