Daiya Snack Attack

In the past, Daiya Mac has been purchased just for the Sauce. Today, Daiya Sauce without noodles was purchased for the first time. Sesame Seed Pretzels were also purchased. One of the Sauce packets were opened and Pretzels were dipped and plated. After a couple of pictures were taken, these pretzels were happily and joyfully consumed.

Potato Chowder

A Dill Weed and Almond Milk mixture was simmered to be infused with VEGGIES. Oil was kept away. Chopped Potatoes, Onion, Carrot and Celery were cooked into the Almond Milk creaminess for hours. The greatness was seasoned with Garlic Powder, Sea Salt, Pepper and Corn Kernels. True texture, flavor and versatility was happily achieved today:)

CHEERS

Cheican Ⓥlorentizza

Nutcheese ‘alfredo’ was heated. Miyoko’s ‘mozz’ was added with sundried-tomato basil seasoning and Cayenne.

Cheican (faux chicken) was pan-fried and sliced. Flatbread pizza dough was sauced. Chopped Smart Bacon was added with sliced Spinach to cover. Tomato slices, Follow Your Heart slices, Mushroom, Cheican slices and lightly braised Broccoli completed this Pi.

In the desert valley soil, lives a fungus. This fungus spreads spores that people might breathe in. This is Valley Fever. I might have this or strep throat. We will see. The desert is a different beast, from what I am used to.

RIDE ON. COOK ON. PIC ON. LIVE ON. CHEERS.
