Eat your veggies

We've had a very veggie-full week. There are a few more photos than this, trapped on my camera, but I guess you will have to wait to see those!

First, twice-baked potatoes, corn on the cob, and salad, made by Andy. The insides of a baked potato were scooped out and mashed with hot english mustard, cayenne pepper, parsley and onions, then topped with tomato sauce and bread crumbs.


Big fat salad, also made by Andy (with some help from me). From the bottom up: couscous, fresh raw corn, tomato, cucumber, beetroot, capsicum, basil leaves, garlic chives, olives, sauteed eggplant, and some previously baked pumpkin. The pumpkin was infused with rosemary and lots of black pepper. On the salad, it was topped with freshly toasted bread crumbs and parsley. This was quite a dinner!

So, that's it from me for the next week. Tonight is Reclaim the Night (Take back the night in North America), so I'll be marching down the night club strip and MC-ing a rally. Then Sunday, I fly to Canberra for a conference. I'm sure I'll have plenty to blog about when I get back, including some vegan blogger meet-ups and restaurants and other fun stuff. Have a good week, everyone!

I was kinda disappointed that I didn't run into any vegan bloggers... but I *did* come across quite a few other vegans! It was so great to not be in the minority for once :o).

Oh, and your salads look great-- I adore anything with couscous.

I can't get enough of "veggie on veggie" type meals. I am a voracious vegetablevore! Hee.

Theresa, welcome home! It was so nice to have you stay this week. So, are we gonna get to see any of Andy's creations while you were gone? :P Just kidding, I know he didn't have the camera. Still, I'd have liked to see the couscous sensation. :)

You'll see I've picked up some words from Au Lac!
