Sunday we usually get Thai take out. I was still looking for something sweet afterward so I grabbed some pears and skinned and seeded them. I heated a skillet and added some margarine and the sliced pears. After a few minutes I sprinkled about 3 tablespoons of sugar and a teaspoon of cinnamon. I let it cook for about 6 -7 minutes stir occasionally and then I added 1/8 cooking sherry. I let this cook down(about 10 minutes) again stirring occasionally. Then I reduced it to low heat for a few minutes, removed from heat, and served with coconut soy ice cream.

After making a ton of seitan for the pizza last night I decided to make a huge pot pie tonight. I took the leftover broth and made a sage gravy. With the rest of the veggies from the broth I created the filling for the pot pie by combining the veggies, some chopped seitan, and the gravy. All of that went into a 9" pie pan and was then covered with a biscuit dough and baked at 350 for 21 minutes. Mountain food may not be pretty, but it sure is cheap!

Made pizza tonight as I do every Thursday. Tonight it was homemade seitan, peppers and onions. The sauce was left over from last night when Dawn hand made pumpkin(that we grew) ravioli. I found a decent vegan red cooking wine that added nicely to the sauce. I typically add some cocoa powder, but this time it wasn't necessary. After spreading the sauce onto the crust I sprinkled a light layer of nutritional yeast for the b12 and the taste.
