Food successes and failures of the past few days-
Successes- I made the burritos again. Yummy! The ladies I had over last night LOVED them. Wahoo! I also made vegan ice cream (although not totally raw. It had maple syrup)... vanilla with raw cacao nibs. Oh. My. Gosh. Amazing. I also made a garlic cashew aioli sauce which is supposed to go over zucchini noodles. Another success. However, since I hate zucchini, this led me to one of my big failures...
Failure- I used an English cucumber in place of zucchini. Now I know why you aren't supposed to do that. Cucumbers are way too watery. It thinned out my sauce and destroyed the flavor. I think that I can add a bit more salt to the sauce and use it as a dip.
I'm kind of worried about tomorrow night's dinner because its supposed to be spaghetti with sundried tomato marinara. I guess I'll bite the bullet and eat some zucchini. I also thought carrot might be okay depending on how sweet the sauce is...
I've done pretty well with everything else. I'm not patting myself on the back just yet though LOL!
