Or I guess I should say Tempeh from The Vegan Table.....
I love this cookbook. Actually someone bought me it, along with 2 other great ones The Kind Life and 30 Minute Vegan . My friends bought me copies along with ones they bought for themselves. Sadly, I don't think they have made anything out of them (& it's been over a year) - but I have- They are pretty much my go to books when I'm looking for something easy and good!....and here is one of the recipes from The Vegan Table....Cornmeal-Crusted Tempeh with Orange Ginger Sauce.
Now you ask....How are classes going this semester? What are you taking??? Well...if you can tell from the above photo - I am learning to do plate presentation - stack the food- build it vertically. I am in Culinary Techniques, which involves a kitchen lab where we learn and make different foods. Yes, it is a bit of a struggle for me since it is not a vegan class, but my chef instructor and my classmates are very respective of my vegan ways....and curious too! So all is good...except for the chicken breast I had to butterfly last Friday - I had gloves on for obvious reasons, but I haven't touch chicken in over 11 years - but I manned up and did it.
So.....some of my posts will be of food we prepared in kitchen lab....but I will veganize it - sounds fun huh?
Another class I have is Beverage Service....seriously??? I get a grade and credit for learning about and making cocktails??? A "I died and went to heaven" moment. But I'll post more on that class later - I will spread the knowledge!
So winter....I can't stand winter....so we are going to play a game. How many animals do you see in the photo? Please note how well I train my squirrels....synchronize squirrels...but there is a hawk in the photo too....
So now onto the much needed....LIQUID SUNSHINE...
I couldn't decide what photo to use so you got both. These little puppies are Oprah's Lemon Drop Martinis, not that I am a fan of Oprah....but I am a fan of these. I put some food coloring in the sugar for some extra prettiness.
And if you can't beat winter....join it....well good for them.
