Ilona's Vegan Pizza

My fellow foodie friend Ilona recently has been making some incredible vegan meals. She is an amazing cook. While many people spend years trying to figure out what it is that I eat, Ilona just jumps in and creates. First she made me an amazing pasta with grilled veggies and portabella mushrooms. Then she made Thai lettuce wraps. And last night - pizza! Tomato sauce base. Grilled vegetables, roasted red peppers, and vegan-rella "cheese". Yum! All this comes at a time I do not feel like cooking (heat related??) so I am incredibly grateful and look forward to having her over to return the favor.   :)

Death of A Butterfly

All day yesterday, this butterfly walked around my deck, trying to take off. It never gave up all the way up until the end. Striving for flight.

Vegan BLT

Michael shared some of tomato bounty with me, immediate craving for BLT. For the "B", I used the recipe for Eggplant Bacon from Appetite for Reduction (pg. 42) which involved roasting eggplant slices, then dipping them in a mixture of soy sauce and liquid smoke - great texture!
