The last couple of days had me super-busy. I was making some soft and funky “Cycle Pads” for my middle Elfling. She picked out the prints from my fabric stash, and I got sewing and snapping.

And all her pretties in a row.

Life is Beautiful!

Today I have been honoured with a Liebster Blog nod. I have been thusly honoured by the awesome blogger Clown on Fire.

This is how I feel…

Roberto Benigni’s Oscar acceptance speech flashed through my head when I heard COF had considered me for the Liebster Blog nod. I was a happy mix of totally gobsmacked and pure, unadulterated jumping-on-the-cushions-of-my-couch happy. And, just like Roberto Benigni, I do want to kiss everybody now!

There are a few Rules that come with the Lovely, Little Liebster Blog nod. They are as follows:

1. Provide a link to the blogger who gave the award.

  • Thank you from the bottom of my little, black heart Clown on Fire. You are a great blogger, activist, Super-über Dad and Wunder-Mensch!

2. Pass the award on to up to 5 other bloggers with less than 200 followers. Some of the blogs I follow have more than 200 followers, and since I love all the blogs I follow, it was a bit of a challenge to even begin a list. Here are the bloggers I pass the Sparkly Tiara of Liebsterness to:

  • elle’s vegan food diary – Every time I visit this blog, I’m inspired. Wonderful recipes and beautiful foodie photos. Yum!
  • i wish i were vegan – This young lady is sharing her journey to plant-based eating with lovely eloquence. Yay!
  • Laments and Lullabies – Courageous, Tender, Awesome, Wonderful, Strong, Brave, Warrior, Artist, Beautiful… Inspiring!

3. Finally, lay back and enjoy that you are loved!

I’m still pretty new around here, and without looking like a total noob, I hope I did the acceptance and passing-it-on parts properly.

Vegan Mac un’ Cheese

I’m way more adventurous with vegan cooking than I’ve ever been before. I’ve never really shied away from trying new things, but I have been guilty of slipping into cooking ruts. /blush

Tonight I kind of left things to the last minute. Yes, I’m such a bad woman! I already know this. Anyway, it can be fun to fly by the seat your pants once in a while…

I started a pot of water to boil for rice pasta, and soaked some broccoli and red carrots in a bowl of hot water.

While waiting for the water to boil, I diced an onion and sauteed it in some coconut oil. Once the onion was translucent, I added salt, pepper, cumin, turmeric and stirred it all around. Once it was all incorporated, I added 1/4 C of brown rice flour and 1/4 C nutritional yeast. After I mixed it all together, I added a cup of water and continued to whisk the mixture until it was thick. I then added a heaping soup-spoon of salsa and stirred it around.

I tossed the broccoli and red carrots in with the noodles to warm while I made the supper smoothie.

Smoothie taken care of and poured. Yay!

I drain the noodles and veg, then add my un’ cheese sauce. Voila!
