What I Ate Wednesday, I love lasagna edition


For this, my third “What I Ate Wednesday,” I am once again sharing some food highlights from the past week.

I had an amazing lunch on Sunday when we visited my sister-in-law and her family for the day. My mother-in-law joined us, bringing along her special non-dairy tofu lasagna. We all marvel at how brilliantly tasty it is, without the usual lasagna ingredients.

She also breaded some Japanese eggplant. The picture just doesn’t do it justice. Delicious.

My sister-in-law made a yummy minestrone soup, and these golden banana muffins. She doesn’t use a recipe or even measuring cups.

She inspired me to make banana muffins for breakfast on Monday. I used a recipe from Garden of Vegan.

After school, my daughter and I decided to make a cake. She loves to help out in the kitchen.

We chose a crumb cake recipe, and added chocolate chips to the mix.

I also made a lentil soup, using a recipe from Vegan Planet. It was quite nice.

On Tuesday, we sautéed mushrooms to top an arugula and mixed greens salad.

We enjoyed the salad along with some spaghetti, homemade marinara sauce and these tasty tofu balls, made using a La Dolce Vegan recipe.

What are you craving today?

    1. I have to work hard to be patient, because it is still easier to do it myself! Although, there are less spills now than there used to be. :)

  3. That eggplant looks sooo good right now. I love that your sister-n-law doesn't measure, that's the sign of a natural in the kitchen (I'm not there yet, lol).

    I've nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award, come check it out when you have time.

  4. That is one truly stunning lasagna! I've only made it twice in my cooking career because it just seems so tedious and difficult... Now, I know it's not, but just getting started and committing to the process can be challenging. It's reminders like this that make me want to give it another go. I'm blaming your post for my growing cravings... ;)

    1. I know just what you mean. I never feel like making it either. That makes my mother-in-law's lasagna even more special, because we don't have it very often! Can't wait to see your lasagna one day! :)

    1. Hi! Thanks for visiting! I have to admit that cake wasn't my favourite. I cut some of the sugar out and then I found it a bit bland. :( Oh well, they don't work out great every time.

    1. I find seeing other people's food motivates me to try harder. I don't really like to cook in general.
