Sunday’s Specials

Friday !!! I have to admit this weekend I cheated. I had a vacation day on Friday. Just to relax, cook,  play with the furry boys and  go out with my daughter for some much needed mother and daughter fun.

Friday morning I wanted to make a special breakfast, especially because my better half had to go to work, so I decided to wake up early to make some pancakes. Because it felt like weekend already I wanted to come with something new and so I created:Vegan Matcha Peppermint  Pancakes with Dark Chocolate Overloaded.  This is a long title 😉  but I wanted to include all the goodies I used and the pancakes turned out so delicious and passed both tests: daughter and husband. I had the first one. I had to be sure they are OK, of course. And I had the second one as well 😉 just to be sure I wasn’t wrong about how good they were. The rest I saved for my peeps. LOL

I have to admit the pancakes were a huge success so I had to make them again on Sunday morning.

And because this Sunday it was just me and my daughter, we had a very interesting vegan cream soup and a vegan mashed potato dish for lunch

Sweet potatoes – Acorn squash Vegan Cream Soup.

In addition to the very light vegan soup the Vegan Mashed Potato with Mushrooms.

I had no idea what to do for dessert. All I knew I wanted something with apples.

Something not complicated and fast to  satisfy the three of us. So I picked up the ingredients from the fridge and pantry and I ended up with a wonderful creation:

Apple Cinnamon Dark Chocolate Muffins

All in all, this weekend was quite fun. I had time to relax, play with Sherlock & Steve and cook. It was as perfect a weekend as one could get. Hope your weekend was just as good!

Sunday’s Specials

Sunday came again and like every Sunday I had to try new things. 

Friday, I found a post that stuck in my mind and I had to try it.  Jessica’s from ” How sweet it is” wrote a wonderful post about a Matcha Hot White Chocolate: here

We enjoyed our Matcha Hot Chocolate along with delicious gluten-free, vegan pancakes. One thing is sure: I will be making this hot chocolate and pancakes again.

After such a rich breakfast I had enough energy to start planning the lunch and the dessert.

I am not sure what made me decide, but I haven’t cooked something Asian inspired in a while so the winner was: Sweet and sour veggies with rice noodles.

And we finished with a very special dessert. Well, of course I made muffins before but never tried the vegan ones and also when you serve them with ” So Delicious ” –  vegan coconut vanilla ice-cream it’s just like a Sunday indulgence. 

For the muffins I found my inspiration here  as for the ice cream … I just got inspired by the freezer form our grocery store.  LOL
