Final May Party!

Photobucket

As the beginning of the month, regular readers will remember I said that the month of May is my happy month of celebrations. Well, on the last day of the month, SisterLovlie sealed the festivities with her birthday party (well just a mini party of four people). (We celebrated her birthday only yesterday though – that is Sunday).

SisterLovlie really liked the cute little mini cakes I made for BoyfriendLovlie for his birthday and requested mini cakes for hers! So, I baked some orange chocolate mini cakes plus one not so mini cake. I actually did not mix the orange with the chocolate but had two separate batters that I poured in the moulds alternatively.

They were really nice. I’ll post the recipe another day. I promise!

And as for snacks, nibbles and dinner, although we were just four (Mom, Dad, Sister and me), we had quite some feast!

SisterLovlie made the salad. It was yum with the dressing being only vegan mayo, lemon juice, salt, sugar and pepper!

The veggie skewers were also prepared by SisterLovlie. The veggies were previously marinated in black bean sauce for about 45 minutes.

And I made the pizza with a brown multigrain flour base. It tasted nice today though. Although next time, I’ll have half brown flour and half white. All brown flour is a bit too heavy for a pizza crust.

After the Okra Bhajis, we decided to make some cauliflower bhajis. As opposed to the okras, the cauliflower does not require any boiling beforehand. They can just be dipped raw in the batter and deep fried. Also instead of using baking soda, I used baking powder and it changes the texture to crispy instead of soft.

We had a nice time and were so full! SisterLovlie’s birthday was also the last day of my six months holidays! Yes, I’ve spent the last six months holidaying.

This blog has been keeping me busy! I’ve started a new job today. But, I don’t intend to stop posting though! Until I get used to my new schedule, I will do my best and try to continue posting recipes and stuffs. And yes bear with me with replies to comments; I love your comments and will do my best to reply to all of them!

  5. avery: yes and quite simple to make too!

    theresa: thanks. I'm starting to get used to the environment at the new job. The only thing is that there is absolutely nothing I can buy for lunch around there. I'll have to bring a packed lunch everyday!

    Liane: BoyfriendLovlie also says I should open a restaurant! We were living together some time back, and good home food does make a difference for guys! :P

    La pingouine: ces petits légumes rouges sont des radis. SisterLovlie les a emincées. J'aime bien les radis en salades!

  9. alice: the skewers were SisterLovlie's idea and so easy to make!

    danette: Turning vegan has been the best thing I've done in my life so far! Cheers for you supporting your daughter! From my own experience it is very encouraging if you get the support you need when turning vegan.

    aashish: Good to hear you tried some of the recipes! And it's especially always nice to see guys cooking! Cheers!
