Thanks for all the well wishes..
@veganer.. wow that is great that you did the beans! so much better.. and cheaper too...
Tonights dinner turned out easy.. My honey shoveled and took care of the snow for both us and his parents.. so i wound up cooking..
i made novicks Spinach/Cannellini Power Lunch..
Basically boil water, dump in whole wheat pasta, 2 min before done i put in TWO (instead of the one called for) canns of drained & rinsed white beans. ..
drained beans & pasta, rinsed pot.. put beans & pasta back in the pot.. added almost a bag of fresh spinach.. tossed gently to wilt.. then put the top on to finish wilting.. while i prepared the dressing..
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, 1/2 tsp sea salt (i used a lot less) 2 TB EVOO, 2 TB lemon juice, 2 TB vegenaise mayo,
it didn't seem to wilt enough, (probably because i forgot to break up the spinach, and i used a lot more than called for).. so i heated up the dressing in the micowave.. till hot not boiling...
then sprinkled between 1/2 - 3/4 cup nutrional yeast over pasta/spinach.. poured on hot liquid & stirred.. it wilted right away .. got a litte "cheesy" It was fantastic, just like that . ..
but i wanted to make it pretty..so i put some in each of two bowls and then cut up a tomato and split that between the bowls.. my honey also put those hot pepper rings on his..
both of us were very happy with dinner..filling and nutrious..
of course then we had dessert ONE cupcake.. i made the peanut butter cupcakes out of Vegan Cupcakes take Over the World.. they were so good we didn't even need frosting!! they could easily be counted as muffins.
