some x-mas break eats

my mom and i ordered pizza hut one day. this was the first time i had ordered a vegan pizza from pizza hut since going vegan almost 2 years ago. i think next time i need to get the veggie lovers pizza and emphasize extra sauce even more than i already did. i'm just happy to have been able to eat an already made pizza for once.i made homemade spaghetti sauce, but as per usual, the second time i made it=not as good. i'll go ahead and blame it on my poor chopping abilities because of this stupid broken wrist. anyway...the sauce had sauvignon blanc in it--i recommend something a little more tangy like chardonnay in cooking. it has red bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, and garlic with garlic powder, onion powder, and italian seasoning. unfortunately, those delicious looking breadsticks had butter on them even though my mom offered to make them with olive oil instead...my BAD.my mom made a birthday cake for my dad, but she said it was also a get well cake for me. my dad never ate any of it saying that he didn't really like this cake that my mom makes [wacky cake!]. but i happily ate half of it. i would say it helped me get start to get well! [THANKS MOM!!!]
finally, i made hummus--with red bell pepper and broccoli. unfortunately, the broccoli made it taste funny the next time i went to eat it so i left it for my mom.

all of this typing is making my hand tired and irritated. starting school with a broken wrist is challenging let me tell you!!!!!!

but it also spices things up a little and will make me exceptionally grateful when i have full use of it once again.

maybe when it's healed i'll stop eating foods that are less than exciting...like my sloppily spread pb&j this afternoon.

I had no idea that Pizza Hut's crust was vegan. Thanks for the info!

yeah! i've actually read a couple of different sites that say their hand-tossed and pan style crusts are vegan. i would recommend asking just in case though before you order!
