An Adventure in Cooking

Friday night we hosted the clergy couples at our house....well it turned out to be only one clergy couple. But we had a wonderful time of fellowship! And we enjoyed some good food, albeit very different from what we usually partake of. One of the pastors, our artist friend Charissa, has become a vegan (no animal products of any kind) and so Mommy took on the challenge of creating an entirely vegan meal that she could enjoy at our house. It took research on the internet for recipes and looking up ingredients....and involved a trip to a grocery store called "Earth Origins" but we pulled it off.

Appetizer: Chex mix (which is vegan) and Sangria Slushies

Main Entree: Eggplant Parmigiana for the ladies and Chicken Parmigiana for the gentlemen

Side dish: fresh Green Beans Almondine

Dessert: Oreo "Cheese"cake
