Pardon me for taking a few days off from blogging; I guess I needed it! Here are the pizza photos I promised you on the last day of VeganMoFo:
In this photo, you see the box of pizza crust, Lightlife Baked Ham Style veggie lunch meat, and the grater full of Follow Your Heart mozzarella. On top of the toaster oven are the pizza crusts themselves.
This photo is of the finished product: Vegan Hawaiian Pizza!
In other news, the prosciutto was next to the baked tofu again at Trader Joe's. Ugh. So, I went to the little management desk and let them know that wasn't cool in the nicest way possible. I also had to ask them where the heck my fat-free original flavor WestSoy soy milk was. Apparently, it hasn't been discontinued, so that's good. Remind me not to go to Trader Joe's on a Sunday again, ok? I'm hoping that was the problem as opposed to them not carrying it anymore.
I went to a family gathering on Sunday, for which my dad's cousin was kind enough to call me ahead of time to ask me what I could eat. What I've come to realize is that it's far easier to let people know what I don't eat because there's so much that I do eat. She was so sweet to go to Follow Your Heart to buy vegan mozzarella (she actually put this out like a cheese plate and it was actually good eaten plain in cubes) and vegan parm for the Italian meal she created. There was a huge spread of veggies and hummus, bruschetta, and the aforementioned FYH cheese (plus omni cheese) for the pre-meal munchies. The main vegan dish was pasta with veggie sauce and she also bought FYH vegan caesar dressing for the salad. Yum! I missed out on dessert because none of the options were vegan and she'd declined when I offered to bring a dish, so I didn't bring a vegan dessert to share. That didn't bother me one bit, though, as I happily munched on grapes for dessert!
