There was midsommarfest, pride, Amber's wedding, The Great Urban Race and Market Days. All were a great time. Even though we did not win the race, truth - we just barely finished it. But we finished it and that was the point.

fresh pineapple and black plums.
i soaked the fruit in cold water and then drizzled it with balsamic and sprinkled some brown sugar on top.
dill pickle spear
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 orange tomato (this was used for added color due to the fact that we were not able to procure various colors of beets)
friday lunch (and saturday breakfast)
we made falafel - the box kind (easy)
added mixed greens, red onion and tomato
and then topped it with delicious vegan tzatziki sauce
served on pitas (we accidentally got the flat bread so it was more falafel taco than pita pocket but it worked fine)
vegan tzatziki sauce:
1 1/2 c vegan mayo
1/2 seedless cucumber (diced small)
3 cloves garlic (minced)
1 tbsp lemon juice
handful of chopped dill
red pepper to taste
salt/pepper to taste

fold in bacos, green part of green onions, and potato/onion mixture.
creamy vegan coleslaw dressing:
2/3 cup vegan mayonnaise
2 tbsp white vinegar
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 1/2 tbsp sugar
salt to taste (just a little)
sassy joe details:
almost a pound of tofu
brown in a tablespoon of molasses
add a 6 oz can of tomato paste
add sauteed vegetables
add water as needed for consistency
i added ketchup, horseradish mustard, oregano, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper to flavor it while it simmered
i also added rice vinegar.... too much of it. so L suggested i add sugar to conteract it. it worked. so if you add vinegar be careful.
make sure you keep stirring it from the beginning so it doesn't burn and stick
~A aka the sassy chef
i walk in the door and am greeted with a kiss and a beer...and, about 30 minutes later, a delicious meal. it was supposed to be a surprise.
a peek in the kitchen:
the cutting board was covered with diced vegetables: tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, and peppers (green and jalapeno).
since everything we eat contains vegetables, this did not really reveal much.
there was also a bowl of tofu - mashed with a fork.
again, nothing too revealing.
bottles of ingredients filled the counters and i spotted a package of whole wheat buns.
ideas were starting to form.
as i sat on the the couch smoking a cigarette, watching chopped, and drinking a beer, i could smell said diced vegetables being sauteed.
a trip to the fridge to grab another beer revealed a delicious coleslaw prepared with shredded broccoli, carrots, and red cabbage and coated with a mixture that involved white wine vinegar, sugar, and veganaise.
more couch sitting, cigarette smoking, tv watching, and beer drinking. in the kitchen, tofu was being browned with molasses.
the sauteed vegetables were added to the tofu along with spices, vinegar, ketchup, sugar, horseradish mustard, a can of tomato paste (there may have been other ingredients, but i was watching tv so i'm not quite certain).
essentially, the contents of the pan were placed on the whole wheat bun and we ended up with sassy joes - i call them sassy because the chef was sassy. said sassy joes were served alongside the delicious coleslaw to produce a meal reminiscent of childhood. it was delicious.
