For some reason I never had rhubarb before I moved to Vermont. It doesn't seem as popular on the west coast. Maybe it doesn't grow there? Some people where I live now have it growing in their yard like a weed. Anyway, this was dessert last night, pieced together from a few different recipes:

Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating! I like Thanksgiving because I love cooking, so this is my kind of holiday. (It also helps that I don't work in retail anymore, so there's no reason to dread tomorrow.) This year most of the family was out of town (including my kid visiting his grandparents), so it's just me and [livejournal.com profile] _hannelore, which is not stopping me from cooking all the holiday things. Well, all the vegetarian holiday things, which turns out to be most of them anyway.

Also, a foot of snow fell overnight, so it's quite the winter wonderland outside. There's no wind, so we've got snow piled up along each individual twig of each tree, as well as along each wire of each power line. Kind of hilarious. Fortunately we're not going anywhere, so I don't have to think about digging out the car.

For any mods who may be looking suspiciously in my direction... my Kinky Kristmas fic is basically done. It needs to be gone over one more time, but I figure it doesn't matter much if it's turned in the day of the deadline or the day before, so I'm letting it be the day of. Boy did I have a hard time with it. It's not often that I have to completely scrap what I have for a fest fic and start over, but that happened, and it made it take a dismayingly large number of man-hours to produce what turned out to be a shortish fic. Oh well.

Hugs to those going through a rough time this holiday. Thinking of you all. ♥

Both [livejournal.com profile] nearlyconscious and [personal profile] delphi were very eager to hear about my favorite sandwiches. Naturally this comes up on a day when I have no bread in the house. Nonetheless, I will soldier on. Here are my top five sandwiches, in reverse order for increased dramatic tension.

And now, time to go grocery shopping.

You can still give me questions/topics on LJ and DW.

I am now the primary cooking person in my home! I like to cook, but I'm already having "what should we have for dinner" mental blocks daily.

These are the things I can't eat:

-meat other than fish (but I like good meat substitutes)
-citrus fruits
-tomatoes
-peppers
-pineapple
-chocolate
-alcohol
-huge amounts of dairy (a little is fine, better if soy can be substituted)

What are your favorite foods that don't include the above? What are your favorite vegetarian cookbooks/sites/blogs?

Could someone with a paid account try to make an RSS feed of love like a vegan? I would be grateful and... I dunno I could write you a drabble or something!

Two days ago my boss had in her lunch some mayonnaise in a tiny plastic cup with a lid. She announced that she was going to keep it in case she wanted to put it on something else.

Yesterday, it was still sitting on her desk. (We don't have a refrigerator.) I decided if she wanted to subject herself to day-old mayonnaise, that was her business.

Today it was still there. I told her that the grace period for leaving mayonnaise lying around had expired and that I was going to throw it away. She then denied that mayonnaise could go bad, which I told her was absurdly untrue. Her argument was that they don't put mayonnaise in the refrigerated section of the grocery store, to which I countered that those are AIRTIGHT SEALED jars of mayonnaise, not sitting in a non-airtight plastic cup.

But then, this is the same person who had to be informed by me, last week, that you can recycle paper even if it has writing on both sides of it.


eta: That last sentence means you CAN recycle paper with writing on both sides. Honestly it does!
