"They aren't cooked!!" She exclaimed. So, I gave it a try and sure enough, she was right. I tossed them back in for an additional 10 minutes, and although they were done, they sure weren't pretty. They sunk and stayed sunk.
But, my friends, the flavor!!! WOW!!!! Dare I say they were better then Nanny Noodles famous carrot cake? Oh, I don't know! They came awfully close! Isa & Terry NAILED this one! I had intended on making the cream cheese frosting from the book, but I really didn't want to waste it on ugly cuppers, so I may recreate them tomorrow.
Dinner was rather disappointing for me. The kids had mini semi-vegan pizzas on english muffins (I had some Thomas' in the freezer that I didn't want to go to waste). Are you all sitting down? Kid 1 requested red peppers and boca crumbles on his!!! HECK YEAH!!!! I didn't even offer up any toppings as I THOUGHT everyone would turn me down. I used Teese mozzarella and I really liked the consistency. It shredded well and melted well. I did not try it, however. All 4 kids finished their pizzas happily.
The Dad and I had the Barley and Red Bean Bowl from Skinny Bitch. I also wanted to do something with the seitan I made on Thursday but didn't really have enough time to do what I wanted, so I just sliced it reallllll thin and tossed it in a fry pan with a little oil. It crisped right up and became rather jerky-like. I didn't think it was anything to write home about, but The Dad ate it all and said he really liked it.
