Vegan Mofo Pancakes: I got a late start

pankes 002As you can see, the boyfriend quite enjoyed the pumpkin pancakes and fried cinnamon apples.  We woke up this morning and other than being surprised by my period, it’s a beautiful day outside!  It’s finally cooling down so I can wear hoodies and scarves without a problem.

We have been having a tradition lately of breakfast for dinner on Saturday nights, one that I’m pretty sure will be carrying on.  Pumpkin for me just screams fall and everything fall I love.  Apple cider, the smell of the leaves turning colors, the crickets at night and just, everything!

So pumpkin pancakes from VwaV and fried apples, something my mom always made me as a kid, were just the thing for tonight’s dinner.  Who could resist this pretty pile of pancakes?

pankes 004Until tomorrow!  Have fun cooking, everyone!

Dear Paratha, I love you.

aloo-parathaAhh, paratha.  Who would think that your simplicity could be so awesome.  Flour, water, oil and salt.  Yet you’re awesome.

I’m currently on a paratha making kick, and even though mine come out looking like Africa or Europe vs. a round shape, they are still pretty damn tasty.  I’m still working on getting them to fluff a little more, but instead of giving up I’m going to continue trying.  So what if they’re a little too flat and look funny?  They still dip into my channa masala the same way!

I recently learned how to make them from Manjula’s Kitchen, a website run by a woman from India that consists of recipes and video demonstrations.  If you’re nervous at all about making bread go to her site and you’ll see how simple it is!  You can watch her make them step by step.

For a first entry this is rather random, but it’s about food, so we’re off to a good start.
