Ice Cream…. did I mention that this is vegan… vegan ice cream :D
Purely Decadent - Peanut Butter Zig Zag
The local grocery store I bought this from only has a small selection of vegan ice cream but that’s okay because I could live on this if I had to.

all three of us got to go to Good Eatz Cafe… FINALLY! 

It’s usually just me (Tanya) and Aslynn who go together.

Anyways, I got the Vegan Shepard’s Pie. It was alright but there was like something in it that was like sour or something, I ate it all because it was still pretty delicious. It came with a salad and I had vegan 1000 island dressing, which is never disappointing :)

Serenah got the Vegan Grilled Ruben with tofu. I had a bite and I think I prefer it made with tempeh. It was extremely delicious regardless. 

Aslynn ordered a Cajun style Fish Burrito (she’s not vegan anymore btw, her vegan-ism lasted like 4 days)  She said it was REEEAAALLLLYYY good (direct quote)

we all had a Chai Cupcakes and they were divine!!! we didn’t get a pic because we were too excited. 

On that note, I hope everyone has a good night! 

more vegan-ness will be posted tomorrow :D

Vegan Cheese Pizza
I used a pre-made rice pizza crust, homemade pizza sauce, Daiya Vegan Mozzarella Cheese, and Italian seasoning.
the crust was thin, the sauce was light, and there was so much cheese. 
be jealous :)

Vegan Orange “Chicken” with Broccoli and White Rice 
I used Gardein Mandarin Orange Crispy Chik’n. I got mine at Whole Foods Market
I ate vegan orange chicken twice before at restaurants, the Gardein version wasn’t as good but I it did come from the freezer so I wan’t actually expecting restaurant quality. 
It was very delicious regardless :)
next time, i’d probably add in some sliced onions, snow peas, and baby corn for more flavors

This is and extremely delicious meal and to be honest, I don’t want my sister and her husband to get back from work because I don’t want to share it with them… oh well, I get to eat both of my nephew’s servings because they hate veggies, which is a good thing in this case :D
Vegan Potato Stirfry
Yukon Potatoes, scalloped
Onion, sliced 
Garlic, minced
Red Peppers, sliced
oil
Boil scalloped potatoes, let cool completely
Heat oil in a large skillet and add the potatoes
Once the potatoes are heated, add onions and peppers and cook for about 5 minutes more.
Add Garlic.
Enjoy 
Go back for seconds :)

Vegetable Fried Rice
Serves 4-6 people
1 tablespoons cooking oil
4 cups cooked day old rice, grains separated

1 tsp finely minced garlic
1 cup or more minced vegetables (red bell pepper, chives, fresh shitake, extra firm tofu, frozen peas/carrots, cabbage, etc.)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
If you’re cooking this with tofu, brown that first with oil and then set aside.Heat the oil, add ginger and onion and cook until fragrant (about 20 seconds)
Add the rest of the vegetables (I used carrots, peas, green beans, and broccoli. But you can use whatever you like) Add them one at a time, putting in the ones that take longest to cook in first
Add the rice and the soy sauce, sesame oil, salt and pepper. Fry on high heat until the each rice grain is heated through. Add tofu cubes back in.
