Still no pics, but an update at least!

My camera is being obstinate. Still no pictures will be released and had I paid cash for this beast I would be livid. Unfortunately, or fortunately for it, this little gem was a Golf Outing prize my hubby, LB, brought home. Now I simply need to find my OTHER camera. But that is complicated by the fact that in a month we are moving. Just across town into a lovely house but things are a bit, messy and jumbled right now to say the least.

What have I been cooking in the past three weeks? Repeats. Cupcakes that my oven failed on. And just this weekend... BBQ Jackfruit.

For the long weekend we invited our friends over and turned on the grill. I made this excellent recipe from Vegangelical for vegan pulled pork. I followed the recipe almost exactly and let it simmer in a crock pot for six hours. It was spicy (my change there!) and delicious! I served it up with grilled eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash, portabellas and red peppers. I also made a foil packet of fresh green beans and garlic that turned out awesome. Slap a chibatta roll, charred in husk corn on the cob and a baked potato and this meal was phenomenal! Smokey, soft delicate flavors paired well with garlic and the zing of chipotle. I ate the leftovers on Monday.

There are many things I want to be cooking but right now everything is so busy with packing, my daughter's birthday and summer visit, and gearing up for the upcoming weekends full of day trips to the New York Renaissance Faire. This doesn't mean I will stop blogging, but my sporadic posts may continue.

Next time though, I just may share with you my mother's secret fruit dip spread, veganized of course.

Obstinate- excellent use of vocabulary. The people at work had pulled pork for lunch today, and I was thinking about how to veganize it the whole time... how funny that I should read your blog today!
