Scavenging (again!)


Do you remember that pale blue-green dresser from the July 7th post?

Well the dresser is still there! After 2 big garbage day (imagine that!). So I decided that this morning I would go over and remove the handles, I love those handles. So I left home with a screwdriver in my handbag and a big smile on my face!
I took pics so you can look at them! Aren't they cute?
On another subject...I've been a bit tired of cooking always the same 2 or 3 tofu recipes. I love meat but I recognize that I can cut down...and after last week's tv show on poultry (I can't find the name of the show), I've been more than willing to experiment with other recipes vegeterian wise....The bloggyland is full of vegan blogs and I found this one pretty entertaining in a rauncgy kind of way! http://yeahthatveganshit.blogspot.com/
One of the recipes I found really intriguing was
The Infamous Seitan Recipe o' Greatness
So I found the ingredients and will be doing the O'Greatness experiment tomorrow, It seems it's the bestest seitan recipe around...We'll see!
I found recipes for fake sausages also...but that is for another post!

Here are the main ingredients: vital gluten flour and nutritional yeast.

Hi Sonya! Thanks for that URL, that is quite a chage of pace! I'm not sure I'm ready for RAW...

MWP I'm glad I'm not alone! Being part of a group is so reassuring! lol. They probably would've rusted and just stayed there...undesired,unloved

Oh I've actually made that before and like the texture very much. Not everyone does.

The other thing is with the actually boiling of it, its an important part. Some recipes call for boiling larger pieces that others and you can end up with a raw flour taste which I never liked. You can buy it made and canned at asian markets too which never has a raw flour tastes but it is easy and cheap to make at home! It will just take some experimenting!
