I have been in a funk over the past several months, as you may have noticed by my absence from the blogosphere. My whole life has been that way; I've fallen into a few unhealthy habits and given up on some things that I used to love--and it's time for me to get back to life as usual. Granted, work will be extremely busy until mid-April, but I can and must still find time to do the things I like to do--getting outside, writing, cooking, blogging, reading your blogs... So that's my new initiative. As far as this blog is concerned, I am going to try and update it at least twice a week. There's time for me to do that. There's also time for me to leave comments at your blogs a couple of times a week. And since there's not time for me to cook as much as I'd like to, I am going to start writing some posts about being vegan in Atlanta--no west-coast town, but a pretty good place for a vegan lifestyle if you know where to look!
These Thai Peanut Burger Wraps with Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce are from Vegan Planet. I had a difficult time getting them to firm up--I think I used firm tofu whereas it would have turned out better if I had used extra-firm. But no worries... They still tasted delicious, peanutty with a spicy kick, and a satisfyingly crunchy coating. The sauce made a perfect accompaniment--I was worried that it would be a bit excessive on the peanut flavor, but to the contrary, it really helped to bring out the different flavors that were going on.
I had leftovers, which were actually not quite as tasty as they were when they were fresh. I'm not really complaining... Maybe that's just me, anyway. I can definitely be funny about leftovers, and there are certain foods that I just don't really like when they have to be reheated. Oh well--the simple solution is to halve the recipe next time. Problem solved!
Have a great week. I'll be back around soon!
