Cheese and Tree Battles

I forgot to post it yesterday but we made a vegan mac and cheese last night!


Prepping for all this vegan stuff has been interesting. We've had to load up on some odd staples like sunflower kernels, cashews, vital wheat gluten and nutritional yeast. I think the hardest part so far was realizing that the mayo and ranch we had were not vegan. We'll have to pick up eggless varieties when they run out!

Also cheese. Cheese really has no substitute. Blended cashews and sunflower kernels get you close though.

Today's Haiku
Colorful curtains
gaze from a windowed penthouse
Their folds, a comfort
