Day 20.3: Wine and vegan meatloaf
What a great night!
My friend Renee was coming over for dinner, so I got started on the Vegan Meatloaf from Happy Herbivore early since it had to be in the oven for an hour.
First I got out all the ingredients:
Then I chopped up my onion like a mad woman. Big props to my Pampered Chef chopper…that thing rules and is totally worth the money.
Then I got started on making the loaf. It was SO EASY!
I followed everything to a T, except the optional ingredients which I left out. One change I did make, was I used oats instead of bread crumbs.
Before going into the oven (and topped with organic ketchup).
Oh my gosh. This seriously tasted so good. Except for the fact that it was not at all greasy, this tasted like meatloaf. I mean that, sincerely. YUM! Even Renee, who is an omnivore, agreed. I sent the recipe home with her!
We had some broccoli too 🙂
And some vino!
The wine was a brand called Cupcake which was picked for the name which was fine with me since I love cupcakes!
It was a Cabernet Savignon and at first, we both found it a little dry but once we warmed up to it, it was really good!
I know some wines aren’t vegan but I didn’t really worry about that tonight. Everything else was!
For dessert we had So Delicious chocolate peanut butter non-dairy ice cream 🙂
Okay, chocolate velvet has some competition! The peanut butter part was very…peanut butter-y, ha ha. But I loved it and it was so nice of my friend to bring it over. We also had another glass of wine with dessert!
I had so much fun drinking wine, turning on some music, making a vegan dinner and catching up with my oldest friend.
Renee and I have known each other since we were five but it has been a long time since it’s just been the two of us.
She’s actually taller than me, this was a re-enactment, ha ha. When we were kids, I was a foot taller than her!
Hope you had a great night as well. See you all tomorrow!
