far greater variety of foods as a vegan than I ever did as an omni or a veggie and I discover new things I love to eat all the time.
But every once in a while, it's good to go old school and stick with simple, easy, comfort food. Today is one of those days. We had a storm blow in last night and I just haven't been able to get warm since. As I sat wringing my hands for heat and pondering my options, I occurred to me it would be smart to pick something that requires an extended stint in the oven.
Ah-hah! Baked potatoes! Perfect.
So, I baked some taters and when they were done, I steamed some broccoli and made a quick batch of Eazy Breezy Cheezy Sauce from How it All Vegan!
Delish, easy, and totally satisfying. The trifecta of food.
We were supposed to attend another movie night under the stars tonight, but it's too cold and rainy to sit outside. We'll probably end up hosting in our living room instead. I'm planning on making white hot chocolate with booze, popcorn, and maybe something sweet to eat. Also, I'm thinking we may just have our first fire of the season in our fireplace.
Tonight's movie will be Tropic Thunder which is probably the funniest movie I've seen in a few years. As soon as it came out on DVD, I ran out to buy it. I can't wait to share it with The Husband. I laughed so hard when I saw it in the theater, at one point I flipped my popcorn out of my lap. Heh ... here's a preview:
Hope you have something fun planned for tonight!
