Frozen Pizza and Birthday Cake

This weekend was a bit crazy getting ready for Grace's 4th birthday party. I spent a lot of time on Saturday grocery shopping with the kids, which can either be a complete nightmare or a lot of fun. Then I had to bake a couple of cakes for the party we had on Sunday.

I really prefer to make things from scratch these days, but somehow I ended up buying two box mixes. Because of Grace's egg allergy, I used the box Egg Replacer from Ener G. I haven't used that very often, and never with a cake mix. While cutting and serving the cake at the party, it totally fell apart. On the positive side, it was quite delicious. However, from now on I am going to go homemade vegan. Nobody will ever know anyway...

The fam had pizza for supper Saturday and I ate my go-to pizza for when I am too lazy or don't have enough time for a real pizza. I discovered that Kashi has a frozen pizza that is made without cheese, and it's oh, so yummy. It's called Sicilian Veggie, and it has kale (!) eggplant, roasted red peppers, carmelized onions and so forth. As healthy as pizza is going to get, really.

I also discovered that while signing up for Vegan MoFo, I gave the moderator the wrong web address. I made a correction, but who knows if she will see it or make the change. Oh, well. I don't really mind. I'm a little embarassed to be included with such amazing blogs anyway.

Not sure what is on the menu for the week...I really need to make some sweet potato black bean burritos soon, though. Anyone want to come over for horror movies and vegan food?


  1. I so badly wish I could come over for horror movies and vegan food right about now. MEA would've been perfect otherwise, but I still have to go back to the apartment and finish cleaning up that stupid place so we can hand over the keys, and I was going to do that this weekend. God, I'm so ready to be done with this crap. :( I'm sick of moving and all the cleaning and unpacking that comes with it. All of my weekends since September 18th have been wasted due to unpacking, organizing, cleaning, shopping, etc. I'm ready for a real weekend.

    Okay, sorry for whining about this on your food blog.
