    One of my classes got cancelled because my professor lost her voice. So I came home and made a fresh lunch.

    I mixed heated frozen peas, lettuce, and tomato with a dressing made of Vegenaise, lime juice, salt and two different kinds of hot sauce (Tapatio and Tobasco Chipotle!). Then I piled this "filling" into street taco soft tortillas with a dab of black olive tapenade.

    My tacos were so good, I never made them this way before, but it turned out. I was craving peas and lettuce and tacos, lol.

    It was a sort of "junk food" day - Subway (wrap with all the veggies & avocado, only spinach, mustard, vinegar, S&P) and pretzel chips. I prob ate enough salt for a week, lol

    I ate an avocado out of the skin as an appetizer, as I waited for my potatoes and carrots to boil for my homemade cashew cheese. Then I ate soooo much cashew cheese, first with cooked broccoli, then with a piece of sourdough toast torn into smaller pieces.

    The cheese turned out the best it's ever been! I don't know what I did right this time....a tiny bit more water perhaps, a tiny bit more lemon juice, and I was generous on both the tahini and smoked paprika. Plus I let it blend for a long, long time so it actually looks like liquid nacho cheese.

    This is quickly becoming one of my food staples. Two weeks ago I made a double batch, and my roommate and I finished it in about six days. I only made the normal smaller batch this time, because I got in over my head with a tofu lentil curry this past week that I got tired of eating after four days (no matter how good it was at first).

    I sauteed mushrooms and tomatoes with sweet basil and Cuban oregano in olive oil with a splash of red wine vinegar, then added chunks of tofu and some garlic and salt. Ate it all mixed up with penne pasta reheated later for lunch.

    Today I ate toast with mushrooms and cucumbers:yum
    I always eat toasts. I decided to buy a new toaster so I have to read a lot of information about it. I found 4 slice toaster reviews there are a lot of information. Cooking it's my hobby!
    Also I bought best knife block for my kitchen. So tomorrow I'll cook fruit salad!:heart_eyes:

    I've already had a couple of peanut granola bars, but I'm about to microwave a baked potato or two and eat them with green beans and homemade tahini dressing. There's also a banana and an orange in my lunch pail, just in case? More tea.
