Travel: Vegan Dinner for the Grandparents.

This week my husband and I have been out of town, visiting his grandparents, aunt and uncle, and great aunt and uncle in Florida. We drove out here (19 hours in the car, we did it all in one day) with a backseat full of vegan snacks to keep us fed while on the road. Lots of fruit (apples/oranges), Veggies (cucumber/baby carrots), a couple tuperwares of left over pasta, and bean salad, a couple PB&J's, and of course a few boxes of chai and unsweetened soy milk to mix in our thermos to keep us going!


Haven't had much time to post this week, so I'm sure when I'm back in Texas I'll post more then... Last night Jason and I made dinner for eight, when our grandparents came over to eat, with his great uncle and wife, at his aunt and uncle's (where we've been staying). They wanted BBQ, and to be honest we've never done BBQ before, but since we were told we were the cooks we just dove in and did our best. It actually turned out pretty good!

We started making a Quinoa salad to go with with our roasted veggies and tufurky soysage, and thankfully aunt Lucy jumped in to help us finish it off because people were getting hungry.

For dessert, I whipped up some of my favorite Vegan Chocolate Mousse, and we had some delicious fresh strawberries to serve with it. We only had a hand beater to blend it, (rather than my "motor boat" hand-held puree blender,) but it turned out alright. And was great to have everyone eat a full vegan meal! They liked the soysage too, it was fun! (no chocolate for you Chase!).

... excuse my absence, busy week... more to come)
