Hey everyone!  It’s been a couple of weeks since I last blogged.  This month flew so fast!   This month wasn’t that great for me since I got strep throat!  I was put under the dreaded antibiotics for 10 days!  It turns out this is the only way you can cure strep throat, with antibiotics.  I tried salt and water in the beginning and it seemed to work but after a week I felt very tried so I went to the doctor who prescribed me those antibiotics!  I really hate antibiotics!  Anyway, I’m feeling a lot better now!

I recently got Raw Food/Real Worldfrom the library as I was searching for new cookbooks.  The cookbook has some of the most amazing food pictures I have ever seen.  I got the “uncookbook” so I can learn more about raw vegan food.  I was impressed!  I still didn’t try any of the recipes but I did make something raw of my own.  I made a very easy raw zucchini “pasta” with a raw marinara sauce.  All I really did was peel some zucchini into thin slices and then I made a quick sauce in the food processor.  It was really tasty!  I felt really good after eating it, for some reason I had a lot of energy after eating it.  I don’t plan on going fully raw, but I am interested in trying various recipes and hopefully I just got a juicer yesterday! 

Here’s some Baked Pumpkin Ziti I made last week from Veganomicon.  I never got around to making this awesome recipe  last fall.  This Baked Pumpkin Ziti was the first recipe I made from Veganomicon!  It’s a favorite of mine!  It’s so tasty!

Finally, some Chana Masala! Chana Masala was  one of the first Indian foods I have tasted.  I never tried to make it until earlier this week.  I looked at various ways to make Chana Masala, and came up with a great recipe!   It’s really tasty, and I plan on making it next month again!   I think it’s going to be a new favorite because it’s so easy and flavorful.  I’ll share the recipe soon!   I was so happy that it tasted like the Chana Masala I had first tried.  I’m really enjoying exploring Indian food.  I really like watching Manjula’s Kitchen and other Indian cooking shows on youtube.  I also like reading  Hooked On Heat which has a lot of information about Indian cooking.
