I Heart You!

Dough Heart

I heart you, Veggiewitch Blog and Veggiewitch Blog Readers! You are always on my mind, but especially when I’m crafting and creating. In fact, this dough looked precisely this way when I rolled it out of my prep bowl. See? There is no such thing as coincidence. I heart you! ♥


Elfling Musings

Ugluk from LOTR

The elder of my twins comes downstairs this morning and says: “Wakey-wakey, eggs and bacey sounds really weird, Mom. We don’t even eat meat anymore.” Then she looked at me and smiled mischievously. “Unless, of course, you said meat’s back on the menu, boys! But still, we’re not boys, and we don’t eat meat.”

Noodles with Greens and Rushmoon Sauce ♥

Noodles and Rushmoon Sauce

My Elflings love noodles, and their most recent, favourite dish was the “Noodles with Greens and Rushmoon Sauce” I made the other day. My middle Elfling commented that “…it reminded her of the mushroom sauce she used to have at her Oma’s house, only better. But please don’t tell that to Oma.” 

Rushmoon Sauce
¼ C safflower* oil
1 punnet of mushrooms*
½ C flour*
1 medium onion*
2 Tbsp coarse mustard*
2 C water
2 cloves garlic*
2-3 green onions*
salt and pepper* to taste
* = Organic

∴ Clean the mushrooms, then slice them thinly. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms to the hot oil and saute until they begin to shrink. While the mushrooms are sauteing, dice your onion, mince your garlic, and chop your green onions. Add your onions and mustard to the mushrooms and continue to saute. Add your flour and stir well. Slowly add your water (1 Cup at a time) and stir well to avoid lumps and sticking to the bottom of the pan. Once you’ve reached the desired consistency (alternating between adding water and/or flour), stir in your garlic, green onions, salt and pepper. Serve over noodles, rice, quinoa, etc. Enjoy! ♥
