Every once in a while we get lucky and my little nephew CW spends the night. Recently I promised him the special treat of Breakfast For Dinner when he was over.
These pictures aren't so beautiful... but we had a great time. I made the "Pumpkin Waffles" from "Vegan With a Vengeance" and also the basic waffles from "Joy of Cooking" (veganized, of course). You can see the lighter, white flour Joy of Cooking waffle, and the hearty, autumny-spiced pumpkin waffles on the bottom. Since I was cooking for a little guy with a very limited palette, I halved all the spices on the pumpkin waffles. I really loved them - and I loved how many it made. I froze the left overs and enjoyed them toasted for a few days.
I also made the Tempeh and White Bean Patties from VWaV for the first time. Mmm. I really loved the way the flavor and texture of these patties. And so easy! See our cute plate? It's a Makit Plate that little CW drew a couple of years ago. I was gobbling up the sausages, but I was the only one. Musty probably liked them, but not as much as he liked the waffles. So that was where he focused his attention. CW took a tiny taste and rejected them. I guess I wasnt' too surprised though, tempeh and white beans are very far from his daily diet. But I'm workin' on him!
