Huggiging Cacti and tapping Beeri, the desert has been amazingly mild this spring. Vegan food has been plentiful during this new chapter in my life, desert exploration.
A Corn ‘Chowder’ was created to evolve as the universe explains our own species, to collaborate. Potatoes, Hot Peppers, Onion, Carrot, Tomato were boiled in flavorful Veggie Broth before being smashed. Corn kernels were added. Deliciously served mixed with Vegenaise, Cilantro complimented this plate.
A day later, these leftovers were warmed with additional Veggie Broth and pre-cooked Rice (Wild & Quinoa) and Black Beans. Spinach, Grape Tomatoes were added to be saved in an ice box for another day.

Happy Monday and Blackjack from the desert valley in Arizona.
Twenty-one days have passed in my Arizona-resident-acclimation.
Things are progressing well.
O’Brien Potatoes were roasted and broiled before being tossed in Earth Balance ‘butter’ and Daiya.
In a separate pot, Pickle Juice, Pepper and Garlic Powder were brought to a simmer. Northern Beans, (Instant) Brown/Quinoa/Wild Rice mixture, Beyond Meat Crumbles were added and heated until the Pickle Juiced infused and evaporated.
After the Daiya melted, the two seperate concoctions were combined with chopped Dill Pickles. Tortillas were warmed. Tortillas were stuffed and folded.
Just maybe, did I get hit by a car, never saw it coming and do not recall.
Maybe, I crashed in an airplane.
Maybe, I wrestled a bear and did not win.
Maybe, a cactus hug went too far.
The desert valley of Arizona is amazingly beautiful.
Maybe this is Heaven.
Happy Sunday! Snow falls again, here, in Northern Illinois. A top secret mission was devised and completed in the form of a booze snow hike. I love snow, but I despise ice. And ice underneath fresh snow is ever slippery. Hulk legs do help, but out of the seven slips in 25 minutes, I fell to my knee once. This Illinois winter needs to be my last.
In a mixing bowl, Iceberg Lettuce, chopped Spinach, Lemon Juice, Sea Salt, Pepper, Crushed Red Pepper, Garlic, Onion slices & chopped Tomatoes were mixed with plain Ⓥegan Yogurt.
Tofurky ‘bologna’ slices lined these Aldi multigrain Flatbread with Flax before loading almost every space with the TⓋatⓋiki Salad. Rolled tightly including the Salad & Tofurky in every layer, aluminum foil was demised to hold this powerful punch together.
