Last night I got creative (and bored) and decided to try Bryanna's pumpkin pie recipe (scroll down). I liked it because it didn't use tofu, and I wouldn't want tofu to overpower my pumpkin pie! I used her crust too. The pie got a little darker than I expected... Here's how it looked when it came out of the oven last night:
However, I took her advice and let it set in the fridge overnight. Bob couldn't resist having a piece of it for breakfast this morning:
I tasted. It's delicious--every bit as wonderful as a traditional pumpkin pie. I could probably fool people with this! Mmm, some vanilla ice cream would be incredible alongside this pie... Next time I'll try a streusel topping, I think. Anyway, this one is definitely a go for our Thanksgiving!
So what have I been eating lately? Well... I've been studying myself to death this week, so we've been relying on leftovers and things. We had tons of lentils left, and some spaghetti squash with red sauce. However, Bob made this lovely meal one evening:
Vive Le Vegan! Lemon Herb Tofu, Garlicky Kale from VWaV, and some mashed potatoes with The Grit Cookbook's nutritional yeast gravy. It was delicious and (mostly) healthy, and the best part was, I didn't have to make it!
This afternoon, Bob and I went to the annual Corn Maze over in the next county, at Washington Farms. It was a warmer day than we've had recently, but still cool and crisp and lovely. The corn was kind of dead, but it was still fun--it took nearly an hour to get through the maze, but here we are safely at the end:
One last thing... I've gotten into making jewelry lately. I don't really know what I'm doing, but it's been pretty fun so far and it doesn't seem too hard. I made my sister a necklace for her birthday, and then this morning I made an autumny necklace for myself:
Sorry about the blurry picture, but I had to turn the flash off to make it look right, and I don't have a tripod yet. But I've been having fun with my new-found beading hobby! Anyway, just wanted to show off my handiwork! Take it easy, and have a blessed weekend!
