It’s snowing here in NC.
It’s snowing a lot.
Trapped inside with no where to go, Brandon and I decided to treat ourselves to the Daiya cheese that has been hanging out temptingly in our fridge since we went up to Baltimore for Thanksgiving and brought it down with us. If you haven’t had Daiya cheese yet, I suggest you go out, find it, and give it a try. It might be the best vegan cheese so far. It’s hard to find, since it’s only sold to stores and restaurants for now.
We were lucky to find it packaged in one of our favorite health food stores in Maryland (Roots) and sold in little plastic containers. Not able to pass up something as awesome as Daiya cheese, we filled up a cooler with ice and took it home with us. We used this great, quick pizza crust recipe, which we absolutely adore, and piled it high with veggies: spinach, tomatoes, onions, and olives.
For dessert, we made Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s Berry <3 Coconut crisp from Veganomicon. I’ve made this a ridiculous amount of times. It’s quick, easy, and no-fail delicious. Fresh and warm out of the oven, I put a big scoop of Rice Dream Vanilla on it and just savored the awesomeness.
After a day full of fresh veggies – green smoothie for breakfast, a big salad for lunch, and fruit all day – I was ready to indulge my bad side with this wonderful dinner. It was a great night – curled up watching the second season of Allie McBeal and frolicking in the snow with our pup. I hope that everyone is also enjoying their snowy night as much as we are!
