Coming Home



When I was home in Michigan this weekend, Mom made dinner. Most of it was vegan. Let me remind you, my entire family except for my aunt and grandmother are vegetarians, but I am the lone vegan.

"Aren't you going to take a picture for the blog?" she asked? I think she also said to stop complaining on the blog about visiting the family and having no vegan food to eat.

I was impressed. We had matzo ball soup, because Grandma and my aunt love matzo ball soup, and we really couldn't deviate from that. I tried making vegan matzo balls once and they were a disaster. I know Post Punk Kitchen has a recipe, but I'd love to find one that is also kosher for Passover. Mom was kind enough to make my soup with rice.

Mom made a baked penne pasta with tomato sauce, sundried tomatoes, olives, broccoli, and mushrooms. And, for dessert we had a vegan pumpkin pie from Whole Foods with Soyatoo nondairy whipped topping. Yum.

So, no I can't complain. Thanks Mom!
