Zucchini Noodle Lasagna

For this lasagna I started with a large zucchini and sliced it thin length wise.
In a baking pan I spread marinara sauce on the bottom and then slices of zucchini.
On top of the zucchini I added more marinara and a layer of vegan cheese.
I repeated this several times and baked at 375 until the zucchini became soft and the cheese melted.
I topped it with chives from my windowsill garden. When I make it again I'll probably add the basil growing in my window as well. It was delicious and best of all did not take a lot of effort which is how I like my recipes.

Easy as pie applesauce

I made applesauce for the first time! I'm very proud of myself and it was much easier than I thought it would be.

In a large pot I set 2 cups of water to boil.
I peeled and diced 8 apples and dropped them into the pot
1 cinnamon stick to boil with the apples and water, removed when apples are staring to get soft
I mushed the apples up with a large spoon and cooked for about 30 minutes
After I let it cool I served it up and sprinkled pumpkin pie spice on top.

That's it! No added sugar needed and you've got yourself homemade applesauce.

Cauliflower Rice stuffed peppers

I stuff bell peppers with cauliflower rice and unsweetened marina to make this super simple supper. Top with vegan cheese for more flavor and bake at 350 for about 40 minutes until the peppers are fully cooked.

An upload and an update

I decided to go back to this blog, because I have a new job and will be packing my lunch. I'm both excited and nervous to be starting a new career. I will be working for a non-profit that helps developmentally disabled adults find work. A lot has changed since I last updated. I got married!! I still have Pepper and Wookiee, my dogs. My husband has a dog named Luna. Arya is still doing well, but her friend passed away. I adopted her a new friend. I also adopted two baby rats whose mother was saved from becoming snake food. I sometimes do temp work or volunteer for the amazing Gentle Barn. Here are my recent lunches: A PB&J on wheat, peach soy yogurt, green tea, fruit leather and a Luna bar.

A new vegan lunchable?

I almost fainted when I saw a lunchable I can actually eat. It contains the makings for peanut butter and jelly sandwhich, a fruitcup and fruit snacks. Yes, it isn't the healthiest lunch and it is ridiculously easy to throw together your own pb&j. However, lunchables are just fun! They were a rare treat growing up, so I was excited to treat myself to them now. Not to mention I grabbed them at my local 99cent store, so for a buck how could I resist?

Quick dinner

It's almost 7pm and I've been up since 6am. I'm starting to get hungry for dinner, but need to go shopping and I don't feel like cooking anyway. What to do? What to do? Well, I had two BOGO coupons for Del Taco, so I made the trip. I gobbled up two bean burritos (hold the cheese), two classic tacos (hold the cheese, sub beans for meat) and an iced tea all for around 3 bucks. I'm incredibly stuffed now, but happy. :)
