I am all ready for food day tomorrow. I made a trip to a grocery store I don't usually frequent and found all kinds of fun things to buy tonight. Keeping in the tradition of trying something new, I bought blood oranges:
I have never had them, so they looked worth trying. While I was milling around the very large produce section in Checkers, I ran across all of the tofu and veggie products. They had a much wider selection than any of the other stores I have been to. I bought some vegan egg type noodles to put in my soup. I also bought some vegan angel hair pasta. While I was in that section, I also bought some veggie ground stuff. It looks like ground beef\, but is ground veggie something. I bought the regular and the mexican seasoned. I am going to try some tacos with that. I also bought some extra soft tofu that says it is good for dips. I am going to attempt some tofu rotel dip. I think that I can throw some nutritional yeast in for some cheese flavor and the rotel tomatoes. I have some of the no oil tortillas in my dehydrators right now (I have two) so that I have some chips. I am getting pretty bold now that I had such success with my veggie soup--I have a little kitchen ego right at the moment! It could be short lived if the tofu rotel fails. I also bought some frozen spinach and canned artichoke hearts. I found some that weren't canned in oil (it will be better than stinking up my house with the stinky whole artichoke). I thought about attempting spinach artichoke dip.
Tomorrow I am going to dehydrate sliced sweet potatoes with a little Mrs. Dash on them so I have some sweet potato chips for the week. I also am going to parse out blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and slice up some pears to take to work for the week.
To be all set for next week, I need to make a trip to Wheatfield's and get some no oil whole grain bread. I also need to make some more hummus so I have some salad dressing and something to put on the bread.
Here's to hoping for an injury free kitchen day!
