Baked Acorn Squash with Apples, Cranberries and Walnuts
Inspired by Baked Acorn Squash filled with Apples and Walnuts from Vegan Epicurean Blog and Acorn Squash with Cranberry Apple from The Ordinary Vegetarian Blog . This was the first time I've ever attempted to try cooking "A Fancy Meal". My usual home cooking meals are just some stir-fried with rice or pasta with store-bought sauce or easy sushi rolls. Reading so many amazing food blogs since the New Year has improved my taste of cooking a lot, hasn't it??? Hahaha!!!
I followed the method of cooking from Vegan Epicurean and added dried cranberries and brown sugar just like The Ordinary Vegetarian did. Please visit these two fantastic blogs for the recipes and let me know which version you like or what you come up with. I would love to hear from you:)
Pad Thai NoodleWe ordered take-out from our usual Thai Restaurant last Sunday night. I had Vegan Pad Thai Noodle with Fried Tofu. It was the first time I've tried Pad Thai noodle with no eggs and no fish sauce. The noodles were a little bit too dry for me but it was pretty tasty. I'm still not sure which way I like better, I think I like them both:)
Dine-Out at Veggie Grill
I finally went to The Veggie Grill in El Segundo with my dear cousin Kmouse to celebrate her birthday last Wednesday night. I had Chipotle BBQ Sandwich (above photo), it comes with shredded veggie-steak, marinated in tangy BBQ sauce, with chipotle ranch, caramelized onion, lettuce and tomato, Mmmm.... Mmmm.... absolutely delicious = highly recommended by me and Kmouse.Kmouse had the above Chop-Chop Chef Salad which has chopped romaine, tempeh, veggie-steak, chillin' chickin, green onion, roasted corn salsa with a chipotle ranch dressing. I didn't get to try it but Kmouse said it was so nutty and yummy! Oh, and we also ordered Sweetheart Fries (Scrumptious sweet potato fries, seasoned and served with chipotle ranch) and Chocolate Pudding to share, YUM!!!
