I am hoping that a positive shift in my mindset occurs...and soon..this week, preferably...because this current cooking dry spell of mine is bringin' me down!
I think a lot of this has to do with my current prospects, or lack thereof. I have been applying to sooooooooooo many jobs and have not had any bites! Well, actually, I had one and that didn't pan out so that was really upsetting for me. I am not happy with my current job situation or the fact that I live at home in a city with little to do, built around having to drive everywhere.
I say all this to say: I WANNA FEEL INSPIRED TO COOK AGAIN! I apologize for dumping all this on my food blog but it's nice to have an outlet. I know the vegan food creation bug will bite me again. I just hope it happens soon, as I mentioned.
Here is what I've been up to lately. Nothing overly special--a blueberry cobbler recipe I made from Vegetarian Times' latest issue (and wasn't all that great--not sweet enough and overall bland flavor); a walnut 'meat' (flavored with Trader Joe's taco seasoning mix--not even my own blend!) collard wrap with cukes, lettuce and hot sauce; kelp noodles with a faux pad thai sauce; et cetera, et cetera:
Blueberry Cobbler--looks better than it tasted : /
Walnut 'Meat' Collard Wrap with collard leaves I purchased at Detroit's Eastern Market--they're HUGE!
And so begins my Instagram photos!!!
Raw pad thai with kelp noodles...meh...
Okay, this actually was kind of creative: raw blueberry 'flax'meal with sliced bananas!
Ezekial sprouted grain muffin with stewed apples and prunes...YUMMMMM!!!
Vegan double chocolate-peanut butter ice cream, made with rice milk...this was not made by me, but rather, purchased so...
