Vietnamese Spring Rolls
I’ve been splurging a bit while food shopping lately. I’m working 3 day’s a week at a new local vegan restaurant my friends opened called Mundo Vegan and it’s giving me a few extra bucks to spend on things I normally wouldn’t while still putting some money into our savings. Its fun!
I tend to steer clear of the Whole Foods prepared food section, because of the priciness of it, but I glanced at it the other day and these Vietnamese Spring Rolls pulled me over. Rice paper wraps are one of my favorite things to eat! Filled with rice noodles and fresh herbs. These were so fresh and delicious and it came with a great peanut sauce to dip. I was hooked but unfortunately I went back a week later for some more and they didn’t have any. I’ll just have to make my own.
Brads Raw Chips: Cheddar
Another splurge! I usually just splurge on special chocolate bars. Brads had a sampling at Fairway a few months ago and I fell in love these Cheddar chips. Buying a whole bag of them didn’t disappoint. I love the zing of flavor you get while eating them. I’ll definitely treat myself to these again sometime down the road.
Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale
It goes without saying that I purchased quite a few vegan baked treats at our local Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale. There was a container of treats that we took home and a whole bunch of them that didn’t even make it home like The Cinnamon Snail donated donuts. The 4 of us each had 1. My daughter might have eaten 2 of them.
Crispy Fried Seitan Salad
A healthier way to eat breaded and fried seitan. No? Preparing seitan this way has become a staple in out home. Its something that the kids will eat. Especially my son who has become super picky lately. My husband and I had a big salad with mesclun, tomatoes, carrots, red pepper and almonds with a few pieces of the seitan thrown on top. I topped mine with a home made Agave Mustard Dressing. My husband choose a balsamic dressing and just dipped his seitan in the Agave Mustard. Eating the seitan as a salad might be my new favorite thing and I’ll definitely be making it again very soon.
