i'm sad that vegan mofo is almost over, even though i didn't post vegan stuff every day, it was fun, and made me blog a lot more.
but here are some random things eric and i have been consuming.

salads. lots of salads. we actually ate all of our produce in three days, produce that normally takes us seven days to finish.
and i was excited to see that whole foods had single beets you could buy. i don't think i had ever had a beet until eric and i went to san francisco last december. but beets were on everything! when they arrived on my first salad i just pushed them aside and pretended they didn't exist. the second time beets arrived on my plate i decided to try them, and really liked them. i haven't tried them cooked, just been eating them raw.

i have a dark chocolate problem. i usually buy a few bars and my favorite has always been green and black's dark chocolate. i bought a bar last week, and just as i was about to open it up, something on the ingredients caught my eye. milk powder was now listed there. my heart broke a little. about further investigation it seems like they now list milk powder as an ingredient for allergy reasons from cross contamination from the production line.
i decided to start trying out new dark chocolates and chocolove was my first. it was pretty good and i definitely plan on buying another in the future.

eggplant fries
the other night we made eggplant fries. eggplant is a vegetable that i really wish i liked. i try to, but just can't seem to like it unless it's fried.
eggplant fries
so while this is not the healthiest way to eat eggplant, it is delicious.

pumpkin chocolate chip brownie cake
and finally, the dessert of the week! this week i made pumpkin chocolate chip brownie cake from have cake will travel. i don't know what it is about pumpkin desserts, but i am never sure if i like them/if they turned out alright until my second or so piece. so while i had my doubts about this dessert, i can now safely say it is delicious and almost gone.

you should try rutabaga if you haven't. i tried it last year and roasted it with red potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, and leeks and it was absolutely delicious.
