Andy's birthday was, oh, more than two months ago! And we did celebrate on the day. But I was just looking through some photos and realised I never blogged about it. And it was a yummy, if junky, celebration, so it deserves to be blogged about.
For dinner, I convinced Andy that we should have a junky tater tot casserole. I even had to walk up to the grocery store to get tater tots at 6pm, that's how committed I was to the idea. Here's how you do it: bake the tater tots until they're just about done. Then smother them in tomato sauce, vegan cheese, and vegan bacon bits. Bake a little more.
This is one of those meals that is SO DELICIOUS while you eat it, and then you regret it pretty much straight away. But SO DELICIOUS while you eat it.
Despite our tater tot casserole regret, we soldiered on with dessert, because, birthday cake! Normally, I make Andy a trifle. But his birthday was in the second-last week of classes, and we were both very busy, so although I offered, he requested a self-saucing pudding instead. Which was good, because I think it was really cold that week.
I made individual ramekin-sized puddings, and then we flipped them out into bowls for beautiful, puddingy cake. A weensy bit of ice cream or custard would have been really great, but I'm not complaining!
We probably eat like this about once a year. I promise my next post will be much healthier.
