Yesterday was a beautiful day. The sun was shining, the birds were chirping (even the one that Eric calls the Nelson bird-sounds like this), there was a slight breeze. Nature was practically asking us on a dinner date. So we set up in the back yard.
I made super simple vegan quesadillas (vegan cream cheese and Daiya in a folded tortilla and grilled until golden) and topped with chopped fresh tomatoes and lettuce---completed with a dallop of vegan sour cream. We also enjoyed some yellow rice with black beans and pickled red onion (recipe derived from Moosewood Restaurant Simple Suppers, but only loosely followed because that's how I roll). We've been using a bunch of the vegan cheeses and stuff as our small town just got a real health food store, wooo! We are indulging a bit in the "fakes."
