I’m going eat leftovers at work. Forever.

by Moratoria

Except for the fact that only microwave at work has never been cleaned. Ever. The real sink and free dishwashing soap and paper towels almost makes up for it, though. And by almost I mean I cry only slightly less when I open the microwave. My inner germaphobe is reaching for the hand santizer just thinking about it. But anyway.

My mom cooked  enough black beans and rice salad to feed a small nation, which makes no sense, since it’s just me and her. Oh well. Like a good college student I stole basically all the leftovers and hoarded them away. I really don’t know when I’m going to eat it all. Probably right now.

Unfortunately I don’t have a recipe to share, because I have absolutely no idea what the recipe is or where it came from. I need to grill my mother for it. Otherwise I’d totally post it for you all, a la VeganMoFo.

But believe me, it was amazing. It’s sad when the inclusion of fresh cilantro in something automatically makes it ridiculously delicious. Fresh veggies? Flavor? Like, I’m going to eat the entire two tupperware containers full of rice HOLY CRAP IT’S SO GOOD delicious.

Yep. Homecooked food = the best thing ever, when you’re in college. Even three day old leftovers. Or week old leftovers. But, um, not that I’m speaking from experience or anything what hey look at the pretty pictures!

And why, oh why did I not sign up for Vegan Month of Food, for real? I’ll still be blogging, but I’m not on the official blog roll. Next year. Next year. I’mma MoFo it up!

Expect some salad posts, too. I’m pretty sure I’ve gained weight eating like I have lately… chocolate is so good guys oh shit.

Breakfast of champions

by Moratoria

I had a kitchen this weekend, thanks to staying at a friend’s. So there was much baking, as there usually is when I’m around one for more than a hour.

I made pumpkin cheesecake. And regular cheesecake. In one. And it was good.

Well, that’s blurry. I suck, guys.

I used SusanV‘s recipe for Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake, tweaked it a little bit based on what I had lying around, and promptly stuck the cheesecake in the fridge because it needed to cool and it was already 2 am, forcing myself to wait until the next morning to have it.

I ate 1/4 of the cheesecake with a tall glass of rice milk. Breakfast. Of. Champions.

Is it fat free? No. Healthy? Not particularly, although there actually isn’t a crap ton of sugar or anything happening. It IS dessert, though. Not healthy baking, not even kinda-sorta-maybe-I-put-applesauce-in-it healthy baking. But that’s why I left it with my friend, so I wouldn’t eat all of it in a day. By myself.

But was it worth it? Hell yeah.

Also, tomorrow is Vegan Baking Day! I don’t know about you all, but I’m celebrating- I’m going to have a kitchen tomorrow. I’m not sure what I’m making yet, though. I’m feeling cookies. Or brownies. Or everything.

And in other news: LISTERIA IN MY CANTALOUPES WHAT. This is not okay. And if I get listeria from the fruit I ate today, I’m going to be SO pissed.
