There's a period of time every week where I get a craving for Thai food. However, most Thai restaurants cook with oyster sauce and fish sauce, which makes trying to order vegan complicated. I realize it's hard on the wait staff and sometimes they don't know if the sauces are premixed or added during cooking, so it's easier to cook it myself.
So, I am sitting here chillin out with my four bean veggie chili...which isn't to say this an un-spicy chili. I used pepper (my favorite way to spice up a dish is just keep-on shaking the shaker until the food is covered in it), red pepper flakes and the Tofurkey chorizo-they added just the right amount of heat in this big ole crock-pot of goodness.
Hey guys! Wow, thank you so much for the thoughts and prayers after Sandy. I am truly overwhelmed with the love and concern from you guys:) Thank you. I continue to think about those devastated on Long Island who still are without power. Luckily I got power back yesterday, on Saturday.
However, I was able to fly out of the city (the morning LGA opened) and fly home to Cincinnati for the weekend.
