Yesterday I mentioned that I had made some cheeze from The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook that I borrowed from my friends A & C.
I made two different lots, a colby uncheese and a mozzarella type uncheese (laziness prevents me from telling you the exact name of the recipe - I'm in bed and I'm not moving, not even for you!).
We have only tried the colby, we had it on grilled toasties for breakfast. It looked like this when I took it out of its container this morning:
And then like this after a stint under the grill:
I smooshed one to see if the different texture mattered. Turns out it didn't! To me, anyway! Baby preferred it smooshed, but she wasn't keen on the plain tomato sauce without cheeze. The kids wanted tomato sauce under their cheeze, Popeye had his plain, and I had good old vegemite.
It was really good! Then we had a slice or two in our sndwiches for lunch today. Mmmmm. Popeye said it tasted like American Cheese, but since I have never tasted American Cheese before I'll take his word for it! I really liked it. The cheeze lasts 5-7 days in the fridge and is really easy to make. I'm thinking that I will make it on a Sunday night so we can have it during the week for lunches. The cook book gives many variations of this cheeze to try, so we are going to try them all and see which we like best.
The mozz is for pizza, which I am planning to have tomorrow night. So I'll tell you about it then.
I attended a really fun potluck at the park tonight. There was so much yummy food! And really great company! I didn't take any photos, except of my own before I left. I took:
Roasted Capsicum Wraps (which went a bit softer than I expected, but in a yummy way) from The Vegan Table
A Fruit Platter
Chocolate Banana Bread (which also has walnuts in it and it rocks) from 1000 Vegan Recipes
I'll link to the other great blogs when the photos go up (and I'm getting tired and even more lazy).
Thanks for the invite guys, we had a great night (the kids didn't even want to leave!!).
