Wednesday:) What’s Cookin’ Miss Toni? Vegan What?

12 May

“You know the old saying, ‘When in Rome, eat Vegan.’ “ Well, no one ever said that but me.”

~Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


So, my baby boy came out to visit me on Mother’s Day from California. He is staying a few days, and it’s wonderful to see him, as it’s been almost a couple of years. Well, my son is a vegan, and a very strict one at that. Plus, he eats healthy! What’s that all about? Was he switched at birth In the hospital?

But, when in Rome… I decided that I would cook for him and eat healthy. (At least until he leaves tomorrow.) Actually, I jest. The food we bought and prepared is delicious, so I’m going to share a few meals.

A nice breakfast of avocado toast with cucumber and tomatoes.

Later, we just snacked on chips and salsa and vegan queso. (Bernard’s Salsa, Of course.)

Yesterday, he made me breakfast. English muffin with scrambled vegan eggs, vegan sausage and bacon, topped with avocado. Yum!

Last night, we had mushroom ravioli with marinara sauce topped with Spinach, vegan cheese, and a spinach salad on the side.

My poor baby, he has been working on the computer almost non stop since he arrived. He works from home, and the home office is in LA, but he probably puts in a 12-15 hour day on his computer, even at Mom’s house. Fortunately, he comes down for meals, a quick break, and even an evening movie, but with his laptop on his lap, and his phone dinging with emails and texts.

Today is our last full day, so I said I’d make my famous tacos. Homemade right out of the frying pan tacos are killer. It’s easy to make them vegan, just use veggies and black beans. But, he Also bought some vegan chorizo, so I mixed that in with the rest of the v-eggs.

Looks good, right?

All the fixin’s ready, and a couple of choices of Bernard’s Salsa, and I’m ready to go.
Now you see them…
Now you don’t! All gone!

Well, I’ll have plenty of left overs after he’s gone. Now, if I could only give up ice cream, brownies, pizza and Whataburger, I might be able to go vegan. Vodka is vegan, right? 🤦‍♀️

    I’ve heard of people working on vacations and thought that was nuts. They should charge the employer double for no time off /no having fun…just work.

      He’s between a rock and a hard place. His immediate boss gone and he never met anyone in the office. He started right when Covid closures did. He’s happy to have a job.
