So, I have been vegetarian for more than 15 years, and I had never tried Tofurkey before. I guess it always seemed so expensive, and I figured I could make something better, myself, anyway. I couldn’t resist when there was a whole big box of one on sale at Trader Joe’s for $8.99. I have to say, it’s pretty good! Peter, Ella, and I all like it.
It won’t be replacing our holiday meals any time soon, but it’s a viable evening meal, and leftovers were abundant for lunches over a few days.
With Peter in the ER last night (mysterious infection) and none of us sleeping until midnight (not even Ellabella) today was a lazy, sleepy, day. I’m glad there was a simple meal to be made. Tomorrow I’ll tackle the seitan for other recipes during the weekend. Since my birthday is arriving soon, maybe J will let me cook?
On the creative front, my lack of sleep did wonders for my clothing ideabook. Again, perusing The Art of Manipulating fabric for a bedtime read, I was thoroughly inspired.
Tonight Peter asked for a headband to make a simple pokemon-trainer accessory for himself and Jack. He was thoroughly impressed when I whipped one up within minutes. Even tired and cranky, I love making wishes come true, especially easy ones.
