Chicago Dogs

Tonight I made Chicago dogs. I did the best I could given that I do not live in Chicago, and not all of the specialty ingredients are readily available to me. I wasn't able to find poppy seed buns or the bright green relish but I don't care because I found sport peppers at World Market!! I used hot dog relish (yellow mustard and relish mix) kosher dill spears, kumato brown tomatoes from TJs (soooo good!) chopped white onion (soaked in cold water made them sweet and not offensive) and celery salt. The dogs are Yves Tofu Dogs that I rippered (fried). Everybody loved them and they were super fast! You should make them too!

Spicy Tempeh Nori Rolls and Miso soup

Hi there!!! Long time no see. I keep telling Lynzie that I'll post something soon but the weeks just keep flying by. Well she has thoroughly shamed me with her numerous posts of late so here goes...

Last night I made spicy tempeh nori rolls from Veganomicon (also inspired by Lynzie, isn't it enough that I'm posting? Please don't expect me to think for myself too!) and an old favorite Country-style miso soup from The Real Food Daily cookbook.

Oh man, the rolls were so good. Ryan and the kids loved them even though none of them are huge tempeh lovers. Make these for any spicy tuna sushi lover and they'll be hooked (see what I did there?). The miso soup was a perfect addition to round out the meal especially on a cold, rainy day.

Well that wasn't so hard. See you soon...I hope!
