This and That....Snow Day

Happy Thursday! It snowed here late yesterday afternoon, so I ended up staying home today. It's great to be home, but not so great to not get paid for it. Oh's given me a chance to get some things done that I've been wanting to do.

Since I was home today, I made some kale chips for a mid-morning snack. I just made enough for me, because I knew Tony wouldn't eat them. However, he did try them, but didn't like them. At lease he tried them...yay!

Last night for supper, I had a Boca burger patty melt. You can't really see my Boca burger patty.....It's lost under the onions, and it really got lost in my large slices of bread. I spread some Veganaise, and Country Bob's on my toasted bread and then added my burger patty. I topped that with some sauted onions and a tad bit of shredded vegan cheese. It was scrumptious! I had just enough tater babies left in the freezer for us to have with our burgers. My burger was so good last night that I had another one for lunch today. This time I added Veganaise, Stone Ground Mustard and spinach. I had some chips and salsa to go along with it.

I just mentioned that I had Country Bob's on my burger last night. Have you ever had this stuff? It's da bomb! I got it out of the frig last night to check the ingredients out and low and animal products in it. I was so exited, because I have really missed this stuff! I guess it's a southern thang!

Tuesday night I had a salad and some leftover seitan steak. I cut it up into smaller pieces and was going to try to fry it up a little, but that didn't work out as I had planned. I think one big problem was that I didn't use my nonstick skillet, so they stuck (bad) to the skillet that I was using. The seitan was much better left over. It went perfect with the salad. Tony said they looked like croutons, which they did.

Time for me to get back to working on some of my little projects and figure out what I'm going to cook for supper. Hope you're having a great day!


  1. My husband is obsessed with steak sauce - he'd probably adore Country Bob's! I'm a little obsessed with kale chips =)

  2. Country Bob's may just be a Southern thing, I'll keep an eye out for it. I did see some Tater Babies and when I get a little room in the freezer, I can't wait to try them.

  3. Yay kale chips! I still haven't tried those. I really need a dehydrator. I am glad he at least tried! There is hope for him yet!

  4. I love kale chips but so does my husband, so when we have them, I have to share! We make our chips in the oven and it works great.

  5. Kale chips! Never had them, but the sound nice!

    In reply to your query, agar agar is a vegan jelly and comes from seaweed. Very versatile, I use it instead of gelatine.



  6. Kale chips are so good, my boys love them. They actually eat them so fast I have to make another batch right away. Regardless of what type of kale I use, I call them "dinosaur" chips, as that is the only way they would try them at first!

  7. I've never heard of Country Bob's - but I checked out their website and giggled with the cartoon pig dousing it on the cartoon cow. I bet that would be good on a Boca burger, though, and with all those grilled onions - yum! I also like that you called it a Southern thang. ;)

  8. hey thats good that he tried them:) kale is pretty funky you know?:) i love being surprised by foods/sauces that are vegan!!

  9. What does the Country Bob's taste like? I went to their website but couldn't find an ingredient list. Glad C. Bob is vegan!

    Seitan doubling as croutons...sounds good to me!

  10. Hellow!
    I love your site, It is a pleasure to visit.
    I have added your site to my site.
    Please link my site to your site.
    Thank you!

  11. I've never heard of country bob's! Your salad at the bottom looks scrumptious!

  12. We don't have Country Bob's here b/c I've searched out all the steak sauces possible. Your dinner reminds me of Shenandoah's! Glad to hear Tony at least tried the kale chips. :-)

  13. Kale chips are the best! :)
