I finally did some cooking

I have been seriously neglecting the food situation in this house for the last week or so, but tonight I got caught up. Well, somewhat at least. I tried two new recipes and both were amazing. My photos don't do them justice but here they are:

Sweet Potato Stuffed Shells with Coconut Curry Sauce

I found out about this recipe on vegan noodle's blog and it looked so incredible, I went out and bought the ingredients that same day and cooked it the next day. (This is unlike me; usually I print out recipes that look good and they languish in my very poorly organized recipe binder for months before I eventually get around to trying them.) I'm so glad I made it - this is one of the best and most original vegan main dish recipes I've cooked in a while. It's definitely good enough to make for omnivorous company. The recipe came from the Eat Air blog (recipe here). Thank you Chris and Darlene for this awesome recipe!!!

Spiced Apple-Cranberry-Pecan Muffins

These came from the vegilicious blog (recipe here - do check it out, her photos are so much better than mine) and they are SO good. I used a bit less oil and they turned out fine. I love it that they are made with whole wheat pastry flour; I'm always trying to find more ways to use more whole grains. I think I should have pressed the crumb topping onto the muffin batter a little more forcefully though, because they are a little hard to eat with the crumb topping falling everywhere. Still, REALLY REALLY good. I will definitely make these again.

Today Carlos was hanging out in the garage with Matt and I got some really cute pictures. Here's the best one.

The dark spot on his jeans is spilled juice, not pee. Well actually, not spilled juice so much as juice that went in the mouth and then got repeatedly spit out because it was so much fun to watch it run down his body.

And I'm pretty sure I've never posted a picture here of our sweet Rowdy girl, so here you go.
