Wow! We had fun this month. Between that amazing Shabbat dinner with friends and Rosh Hashanna, i can see both the bottom and back of my cabinets. What's a woman to do before the new month? Get Creative. This recipe can truly be re created with whatever it is that you have in your refrigerator. Two light life franks? chop em up. Can of spinach from some food bank at some point, toss it in instead of the asparagus. (Just check the expiration date first). It's not fancy, its not Shabbat, it's Tuesday night dinner.


What I thought was a good move when i was cooking this, was that instead of using cheese in the sauce, I made some good 'ld country gravy. I guarantee you have the ingredients for this at ll times in your kitchen. All you need is a 2 tbs vegan butter, a 4 tbs of flour, a cup of non-dairy milk, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, and some cracked (or regular) black pepper to taste. Add that to 10 oz dried macaroni (or other noodles) canned goods such as asparagus, papas (potatoes), and mushrooms.

The Gateway Arch,St. Louis, Missouri

St Louis, Missouri, where I fulfilled a childhood dream of seeing the gateway arch. After, my service dog, Rant and I enjoyed a vegan friendly and very comfortable breakfast at Robbie's Restaurant inside the Magnolia hotel, where we stayed. I was over the moon with delight over their LaVazza coffee which I haven't had in years. I ordered a fruit bowl and bagel. And yes, the place served almond milk. They also had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in.
