Meat Free Monday: Pink Salt is Tofu’s Best Friend

I recently bought a grinder of Himalayan Pink Salt, and it’s really taken my breakfast tofu sandwiches to a new level.

I also bought some “Meyer Lemon & Blood Orange Pepper Jelly.” It’s sweet, spicy, and citrus-y. I generally like pepper jelly, unless it leans too heavily on green bell peppers … but this is just a whole new level of yummy. The only better pepper jelly I’ve had recently was Mississippi State University’s own five pepper jelly.

Yum!

Meat Free Monday: Super King Buffet In Hattiesburg, MS

So this is my favorite Chinese buffet around.

Why? It is very vegan-friendly if you don’t mind a shared hibachi. 

Their make your own has not only soba but udon, glorious udon! As well as a good selection of vegetables and sauces.

Also, they have two vegan sushi types, plus seaweed and edamame on the buffet. 

For dessert, they have fresh fruit. The pineapple is my favorite.

I can eat myself silly with yummy food I know is safe.

Yay!

Meat Free Monday: Babalu in Jackson, MS

Babalu Tacos and Tapas is positively great.  They have a few vegan things on the menu,  including their outstanding guac and their black eyed pea hummus.

But I got a couple of almost-vegan items made vegan: the vegetal taco (just ask them to hold the cheese. It is delicious!) and the black bean burger, which came with guac, onion, arugula, and a delicious sauce. 

They normally fry the black bran burger, which requires an egg bath, but for vegans, they skip the egg bath and grill it instead. It was outstanding.

Their iced tea was also good. Ask for it with lime, for an unexpected treat.

They have locations in Jackson, Memphis, Knoxville, Birmingham (Alabama, not England), and Charlotte.

Tim’s Back (and Tim’s front. They’re both here!)

You may have noticed a two-month silence on this blog. I hope you noticed it 🙂

Two months ago, an F4 tornado passed over our house, close enough my ears popped. It tossed several hundred-foot tall pine trees around like Lincoln Logs, smashing our carport and both cars.

Twelve days later our first child, a daughter, was born.

I may write about all this in more detail later, but suffice it to say I wasn’t thinking about blogging for a while.

But it’s been two months, and it’s time to get back on that horse. I have things I want to say, things I need to wrestle with.

So, here goes…
