Catchin Up

I have been cooking more, but posting a lot less. It’s hard to balance school work, cooking dinner, and having a life. I find my self making extra food and eating left overs for three or more nights afterwards (not that there is anything wrong with that). My brother is home from college so my mom has to cook him separate meals and I have been cooking entire meals and cleaning up while she cooks for my brother and dad. I have finals/midterms (finals in my half year classes and midterms in my all year classes) coming up so this may be one of my last posts for a while.

Tempeh, spinach, shiitake mushroom, and broccoli stir fry

I used garden veggie tempeh and I simmered it in water for ten minutes, which is a trick I learned in the Student's Go Vegan Cookbook to take out the bite.
Pasta fagioli (kind of)

I used a recipe for pasta fagioli from this month's VegNews but I used fusilli (spot that Sienfeld episode) pasta.
Butternut squash soup
Original Post
Fettuccine and spinach
This was a rushed meal so I just made a ton of pasta and cooked some spinach. Then I added olive oil, garlic powder, and basil. I used Ezekiel 4:9 sprouted whole grain pasta, which is so amazing and packs in seven grams of fiber and nine grams of protien. We also get Ezekiel 4:9 bread and it happens to be my all time favorite bread! The next night, I made tomato sauce to eat with the left over pasta.

That pasta fagioli looks great, as does everything else! I hope your midterms go well--no guilt about not posting when you're busy!! Take care.

I haven't tried the Ezekiel sprouted pasta yet. I bought a case of the bread and we ate it all, but I honestly have to say I didn't really care for it that much. I tried. I wanted to love it with all it's healthiness. But I couldn't. All of your food looks so delicious though. I'd definitely eat lots of leftovers of it.

All those dishes look great! I had read about that trick of steaming or simmering the tempeh. Do you like Students Go Vegan?

I buy the gluten free rice almond bread from Food 4 Life - it's like candy! And it keeps in the fridge for a month or more.

I remember fusilli Jerry!

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
