The day started out rainy and cool. A perfect day for doing a bit of baking. I got the dough started for whole wheat buns. I make a batch and freeze them, taking out a few at a time when we need them. The recipe from King Arthur Whole Wheat Baking is a nice one.
While the dough was rising, we made a foray into the big city to the health food store for some ingredients needed for the new vegan cookbook I received for Mother’s Day. I like that it does not call for a lot of prefab soy meats, etc. just basic building blocks of food. We have been using tofu pretty regularly and I needed more. We have had one attempt at Tempeh and The Bearded One was not impressed but we need to give it another try. We have never tried Seitan and I want to give that a try. There is a recipe in the book for making your own Seitan but before getting the few ingredients, I want to see what the store bought tastes like.
We had a Rachel Ray recipe for dinner, 4 Minute Spicy Garlic Shrimp, and corn on the cob. The corn from the market has been particularly good lately and a treat. The shrimp recipe is an old standby…one of those reliable recipes that are frequently repeated (and I do not repeat many recipes!).
I will post the recipe in My Favorite Recipes.
