Spicy Sushi Bowl — Vega Table

Posted on Updated on

From Vega Table

\

I am a sushi fanatic.  Before I became a vegetarian, I use to love going out for sushi after work.  When I did become a veg head, I thought that I would never eat this again.  However, a few years back, The Sky Bar opened up on the island.  It was an indian/sushi bar restaurant.  What a combination?

They have lovely vegan sushi.  Along with their vegetarian spring rolls, the sky bar is my place that I go for special treats or celebrations.  I happened on this post today.  A sushi bowl.  Yummy.  And a lot of the ingredients are similar to the sushi I get at the restaurant.  I have got to try this.  And soon!

Enjoy!

It is hot, hot, hot on Galveston Island!  Especially so, because I just got home from Quebec, Canada.  The temperature there was in the 70s with an occasional dip to the 50s at night.  Heavenly! 

It’s good to be home though.  I do need something that will help us cool off at dinner.  I found this wonderful gazpacho recipe.  This will do!

 

Enjoy!

Our Thanksgiving Breakfast

Posted on Updated on

 

Sorry that I am so late posting about our weekend.  I learned a valuable lesson this weekend.  Don’t ever upgrade you Computer OSX if you think you are going to need to use your computer.  Apple put out a new upgrade to the Mac. OSX.  I had the bright idea to upgrade the system on Wednesday, see as how Jim would be home. 

 

I am definitely not a tech person.  So I need someone here to help if things go wrong.  That is definitely Jim!  Needless to say, everything went fine with the upgrade.  The problem is that there were so many changes, that I had to spend a couple of days figuring everything out!  I think I have it now!

 

We  had a wonderful holiday.  Our breakfast was perfect.  I actually didn’t know what we were going to have until the last minute.  We decided not to have an elaborate Thanksgiving.  It was just going to be Jim and I this year.  We thought we would just go with the flow.  Read the rest of this entry »

Roasted Red Pepper Salad

From Sylvia Melange!

This is a wonderful dish.  I make something like this myself for when I have guests coming over.  Or if I have an access of red peppers in the garden, I will make this up, keep in the refrigerator until I want something simple and delicious.  Serve it with French Bread and a glass of white wine.  Heaven!  Check out  of her site!

Peanut Butter, Chocolate, Banana each alone are wonderful tastes.  Put them together in one recipe and it’s heavenly.  This is a beautiful bread that is topped with a chocolate ganache.  My husband loves ganache, so I know that this will be a winner in our house!

Panzella is one of our favorite salads.  It’s a great way to use stale bread.  This recipe adds a delightful twist by using rye bread.  And there comes a point that we are overwhelmed by all the tomatoes from our garden.  Homegrown tomatoes make this a great treat!  Great recipe!
