In my first post earlier today, I forgot to mention my mom's amazing VEGAN Christmas pudding that she made for our New Year celebration!!! It was very rich, very moist, dense, and delicious. My mom is so cool to make it vegan. You pour brandy on it, then set it on fire and wait until the alcohol all burns off. I tried to take a picture of the flame in the dark, but it didn't turn out.
Tonight for dinner I made Bryanna's "Kuwaiti-style black eyed peas with greens." It was pretty good... Musty ate a little bit, then went and made spaghetti. Oops. That always bums me out a bit. I liked the dish however, and happily ate my big bowl of it. Good thing too, because there is a TON left over. I guess I should have made a half recipe!
Finally, a product review: Sjaak's vegan organic chocolate Nuts and Chews. OH MY GOD!!!! These are so so so so so so good. I saw them on the Vegan Essential website, and tried to order some but they were already sold out. Now I know why! I later found them at our local health food store and splurged and bought myself a box. There are 9 chocolates inside: 7 caramels and 2 nut clusters. All in organic dark chocolate. The caramels are SO DECADENTLY AMAZING. Each is a different flavor: peanut, pecan, chocolate, mocha, coconut, etc. Wow, I haven't had chocolate caramels since becoming vegan and these are great. I'll confess, I went back and got another box. They're that good. Apparently they also put out a box around Valentine's Day... so keep your eyes out!
