Had a lovely day today with my good friend Cam. She and I love to get together at the local Whole Foods for coffee, breakfast and donuts. After a bit of nosh, we peruse the aisles for goods to go. We also went guitar shopping and came back home and had lunch on the patio.

There is something really satisfying about a chili dog. I grew up eating them all the time. At the time of course, we'd open up a can of meat chili, plop it into a pot to heat up and served it over a Farmer John weiner in a bun. It was really good and comforting. Now as a vegan, I can still enjoy a good ol' chili dog. I made my chili from scratch because veggie chili from a can is horrible. The dogs I like are Lightlife Smart Dogs. They are the same brand used by Dodger Stadium, except they use the Jumbo style. They are wonderful. Here's to baseball season which has already begun!

My fave chickpea salad made with chickpeas, ground almonds, celery, green pepper, red onion, vegan mayo, garlic powder, a bit of mustard and salt and pepper. It's truly delicious! I made a scrummy melt with whole grain bread and Daiya cheddar. It was so gooey and satisfying.

Another Happy Pear recipe! I adapted it to make it vegan. First I roasted hazelnuts, then whizzed them in my Blendtec with a little sunflower oil. I was so pleased my blender was able to get it pretty smooth.
Beautiful dahl recipe from The Happy Pear cookbook. I'm so in love with their food! I had to substitute a few things because I didn't have them. I used a garnet yam instead of butternut and kabocha squash. I know the squash would have been amazing. Didn't have pak choi so I used baby spinach.
