sarah sippin strawberry milkshake on saturday

i just wanted something cold, creamy and banana-less(i LOVE bananas but i use them too much, and the ones i have right now are tooo green)

so i came up with a kinda milkshake, but it doesnt have ice cream!!

heres what i put in it:
1/2 avocado
frozen strawberries(i only had like 3 but if you have more, do it!)
soymilk(~1 cup)
sweetner(as much or as little as you want)
vanilla extract(optional)

and blend!!

it tastes so good! and its so creamy because of the avocado, but you cant even tell its there!!!(you cant even see the green after its blended)
ps sorry for all the food posts lately.....

savory dooughnuts!

yes indeed.
i used this recipe:
then changed it around a bit.
heres how it went:
~2 cups of whole wheat flour
~1/2 cup of sweet potatoes
~1/2 tsp salt
~2 TBSP brown sugar(optional--i found them pretty sweet with it)
~1 1/2 tsps curry powder(more if you wish!!)

1 cup warm soymilk
5 tsps yeast

mix the last two ingredients in a cup
mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl
add the milk/yeast to bowl
knead a bit
roll out
cut doughnut shapes
fry in 1/2 inch oil

then i made a dipping/brushing sauce out of:
earth balance
crushed garlic

and i ate some of these doughnuts with some carrots and broccolini pan fried with seaseme oil, sriracha, and a dash of soy sauce.

it was all very tasty :)

today is a pretty day.

its my friends birthday today!

and right now im listening to vampire weekend's[one of my all time favorite bands]latest album, contra. i finally bought it last week.
and the wheather looks nice.
and i had leftoveres for breakfast.

yesterday I visited follow your heart for the first time!
tasty tasty food. i had the [vegan] meatball sub. it was really good but i was a little disappointed in the actual meatballs. my brothers girlfriend had the club sandwhich and i tried some of it. its was so freakin tasty! the bacon bits tasted SO real it was a little weird. :0
there I picked up some primal strips! i bought the mesquite lime and hot n spicy. the main ingredient in the hot n spicy one is mushrooms. i tried it and it was very good! the texture was spot on to realy jerky, if not better. you can definitely taste the sugar though. I wish there was more flavor and less sugar. to me it mostly tastes pepper-y. but still very good.
