A Weekend of Sandwiches


I'm not usually a big sandwich eater, but somehow this weekend, I had one every day.  I won't recap every meal, but there were definitely some highlights.  I had to work all weekend, but I took a few breaks to keep my sanity and cook up a few things for the week.

We had a backpacking trip planned for this weekend, so Josh took Friday off.  Unfortunately, we both had too much work to do, I am still battling a lot of pain, and the weather was cold and rainy, so we didn't go.  We did decide to take a break and spend the afternoon together.  We headed to The Fold for lunch, because Josh had never been, and I wanted to try the new extended menu.  See my whole write up here.



That was sandwich #1.  It was really yummy.  We spent the afternoon running errands around town, and we went home to play a new video game together.  It was a really nice break.  Late Friday night, we crawled out of our offices in search of food, so I made up some sandwiches!




I made up a baked tofu grilled daiya sandwich with some oven baked potatoes.  I definitely don't have this recipe worked out yet, so I'll keep it to myself.  The sandwich was amazing.


Saturday morning, I woke up and did some baking before settling into an afternoon of working.  I realized that our bananas had gone to the perfect squishy-and-ready-for-banana-bread.  So, that's what I made.  I used Neverhomemaker's Banumpkin Bread.  This is my go-to recipe, and it's always great!



This month's Vegetarian Times featured Old Fashioned Lemon Bars, and they looked so good.  I really wanted to make them, but they have eggs.  So, I thought this might be a great time to try my sample of The Vegg.  They were great enough to send me a sample and a cookbook, and I haven't had a chance to use it yet.  So, I put it in place of the eggs.  When I blended it, it smelled just like egg yolk.  I can't wait to use it in scramble!



Unfortunately for the bars, I used a pan larger than they called for, so everything got a little thinned out.  These are very rich, and I'm sure they would have been fluffier with eggs, but it was still good.  I will keep tweaking it.




I spent the rest of the day working, stopping around 4:30 to eat a late lunch/early dinner.  I warmed up a Thanksgiving Themed Stack Salad and got back to my drawings.  That's pretty much how the weekend went.  Sunday morning I was up and eating more banana bread, then more drawing.  We decided to make some more sandwiches for lunch.  This time, it was roasted tempeh and daiya cheese and a salad.




Inspired by Keepin' it Kind's Butternut Squash, Kale and Gnocchi dish, I whipped up one of my own.  I'll give you a more specific recap later this week, but it turned out really yummy.


It was definitely a heavy starch filled weekend, and I'm feeling the repercussions of it today.  All this heavy food was probably a reaction to all the stress I'm under, so I'm going to try to keep it lighter for the rest of the week, at least until Thanksgiving.

What are you cooking for the holidays?  Do you try to prepare by eating light the days before?

ps.  Bodhi and I had a little fall photo shoot friday.  Check out the photos on Scribbly Brain.
