Oatmeal with cinnamon and chopped apple. Filling and nice enough, though tomorrow I’ll have to add a pinch of salt before microwaving.
Four sandwiches, peanut butter+cucumber slices+sambal.
The rest of the salad, fried rice and veg with some peanut sauce.
Salad: dumped whatever was left into a bowl, added some soya sauce and pepper.
Fried rice and veg: chopped up one bell-pepper, chucked it into the frying pan. Chopped up three carrots, added them to the pan. Waited a bit, then chopped up two tomatoes and added them to the pan. Added a few (regular, not measuring, precision not necessary here) table spoons of rice. Added some soya sauce and some of the spice mix I’d used yesterday. Let it heat up for a bit.
Peanut sauce: put a heaped (regular, not measuring) spoon of peanut butter in a small bowl, added some water (amount depends on desired consistency. Start with a little, add more if you want it more runny), added some sambal (red pepper paste, optional, can be subbed with whatever peppery thing you want), some sumac, some garlic powder, and some fenurgeek powder. Stir until it becomes a homogeneous paste, heat it in the microwave. I heated it for just about a minute, and it got a fair bit thicker so you may want to keep that in mind when adding water.
While eating this, I watched Rhys Morgan’s video about what went on at a Crohn’s forum he was registered at. Apparently at support forums, it’s not okay to mention that some quack nonsense is not just unhelpful but also actually dangerous and going against the mood will get you banned. :/
Really annoying, such things.

Some administrative stuff again.
I added the two fandom veganism posts to this blog, since I don’t see myself maintaining that blog alongside this one. I considered deleting the blog, but that sort of thing makes me rather nervous. Also, the main reason I would want to delete it is to free up the name for someone else, but apparently that doesn’t happen. Since it’s probably possible to somehow give the name to someone else by adding users and whatnot, anyone interested in the name can contact me about that.
I also added some Twitter to this blog, simply because I can, and I’m considering changing the layout somewhat. The categories look a little messy in this one.
ETA: Fixed the category iffiness and found a way to make the clashing orange not be here anymore. Content now, will not switch themes.

Not That Nice July 31, 2008Posted by tuimeltje in administrative, dessert, non-food veganness.

Today, I decided to have dessert before dinner. Or just have dessert. I’ve not actually made dinner yet, since I’ve not actually done the dishes yet. It’s possible, even likely, that this won’t happen at all today.
A while back, when my boyfriend was over here, we had some basic vanilla soya ice cream with crumbled chocolate country cookies (cheap oaty-biscuits with little chocolate pips). While I’m not too crazy about either food on it’s own, mixed up they’re actually quite nice and I’ve been thinking of making it again. So after work today I stopped by the supermarket. The organic one, not the general one Dice and I went to before. The one which doesn’t have those chocolate country cookies but does have small containers of ice cream rather than the .5l ones. But no longer the vanilla flavour, apparently. Since I didn’t want to try strawberry-chocolate not-country cookie, I went for chocolate instead.
While it wasn’t that bad, it wasn’t as nice as the version Dice and I had earlier. Not sure why, really. The biscuit was the sort without beet or cane sugar, but I’m not that much into sweet foods so that should make it better, not worse. And I didn’t expect the different flavour ice cream to make that big a difference, either.
To be honest, though, the earlier version was only tasty for a bite or two, three at best. After that, it was just cold sweet stuff with biscuit bits. I noticed that with sorbet as well, not too long ago. Someone very kindly got me some recently, and while it tasted lovely at first, it soon stopped tasting like anything beyond “sweet”.
Completely switching gears here, I would like to mention a new little project of mine,
Fandom Veganism. It’s only just starting, but I hope it’ll grow a bit. It’s a blog about pop culture things and veganism.
I’d been thinking of starting something like that since TV often makes me vegan-ranty the way certain aspects of veg*ism are portrayed or the way characters display all kinds of ethics which, if displayed consistently, should give us a vegan character but rarely, if ever, actually do. While I occasionally rant about this for a bit, it never ends up a nice, interactive discussion so I figured this might be a way to get that.
