What Vegans Eat – Day 927


Breakfast: I jumped out of bed as soon as I woke up. I had a cake to finish! I had trimmed the layers the night before. Now I had to make the Swiss Buttercream, using a recipe from Zsu Zsu Dever’s Aquafaba cookbook. I had never made the frosting before and was hoping it would work out. I didn’t have any time for errors. It was wonderful! I had fun piling it on the layers.
Gary took over the kitchen when I was finished and made the Baked Tofu. This time he used Maple Syrup and Coconut Aminos.
With our work done, we relaxed with bowls of Rolled Oats, Apples, Raisins, Pecans and Soy Milk.
There was sliced Cantaloupe too.
Lunch: A little later on I took a bowl of Sauerkraut before leaving to go to my parents’ house. Sometimes, you just a need a little sauerkraut. This was one of those times.
Dinner: Things were a little crazy with my sister and brother-in-law arriving at one train station, my brother arriving after teaching at another train station, my brother’s family coming by car stuck in traffic, as was my cousin. When we got to the house, Gary and I helped my mom put out the Appetizers. My mom had prepared a lot of fruit: Watermelon, Honey Dew and Cantaloupe, Stawberries and Oranges, Berries, and she made a lot of her famous Vegan Chopped Liver. Gary and I put out the Red Pepper Hummus, Carrot and Celery Sticks, Mary’s Gone Crackers and the Baked Tofu.
Everyone arrived and we sat around the table noshing and chatting.
My niece and nephew wanted to go to the pool and of of course we obliged. After the pool, the plan was to have dinner at Jani’s in South Huntington. I didn’t want to eat too much so I ordered the Avocado Maki.
Gary got the Steamed Vegetables with Tofu, served in a bamboo basket.
Evening: When we returned to the house it was time for birthday cake. I lit the candles and presented the Raspberry Vanilla Cake with Swiss Buttercream (vegan and gluten-free).
I also brought out the Fruit Tart.
The cake looked great, inside and out. Happy Birthday, Mom!
