Day 24: Nigella and Banana pancakes
I love Nigella Lawson!
I could just listen to her talk (I’m a sucker for accents) and make chocolate all day.
She’s so gorgeous and even though I eat vegan now, I still like watching her cook. I only catch her show if I’m up early on a Saturday, like today!
I did my own cooking this morning, thanks to another great recipe from Vegan Planet…Spiced Banana Pancakes!
I accidentally blended all the bananas instead of half, so I didn’t have any huge banana pieces in them, oh well.
Instead of making the entire batch this morning, I decided to make what I wanted and then put the rest of the batter in the fridge for tomorrow (plus another day too I’m sure)!
I also tried a new product for my coffee today. I got this sample from Mimic Creme a while back but had yet to try it.
I had originally wanted to try it because I thought it was a coffee creamer but when I saw everything on the box it came in, I was thinking I must’ve been wrong.
A lot like soy milk, it sort of “separates” so I had to stir it again about half way through drinking it. It doesn’t have much flavor but it does make my coffee “creamier” so I will have to experiment with some flavors now.
Breakfast was delicious!
These were so moist and dense (I used half whole wheat flour) and I gasp when I say “I liked these better than the pumpkin pie pancakes!” They are that good.
Suzie is watching TV while I blog. She’s still a little sleepy.
I can’t wait to get this day started. First, I’m off to the grocery store(s) but I’m not sure which ones yet. I kind of want to go to Whole Foods just to do some price comparing. So I think I will start there.
Then after lunch, Court and I are going Halloween “shopping” as I’m not really dressing up this year but it is fun to look at all the crazy stuff at the stores and try on wigs and hats.
She’s been going through a rough time lately, so our goal for the day is just to relax and be silly! Expect lots of pics later.
Then tonight is the UFC pay per view. So it’s going to be a loooong night at Buffalo Wild Wings. As many of you know, they have NO vegan options (boo) so I will have to eat before I leave home (and sneak a snack in my purse perhaps).
We are currently researching other places to go watch it in the future.
Hope you have an excellent Saturday!
