Kitchen Kevin

Kevin gets way more air time in my blog than I do in his. That's probably because he talks about real things like politics and international affairs, whereas I just talk about what I like to cook and where I cook it.

Little known fact: Kevin's becoming a cooking wiz. Not only does he have the skills, but he's actually using them regularly. My favorite thing is calling on my way home from work (usually to start making a plan for dinner, since I'm usually starving,) and he'll give me some vague indication that he's cooking like, "I threw out all the food" or "I thought we could eat rice tonight."

So, at risk of terribly embarrassing Kevin, I have to brag about the things he's been cooking.

Tempeh Bacon
Doesn't it look pretty sitting on the Chambers?

Which is usually made into fakin' sammiches with my favorite purple-lidded condiment, Veganaise!

(don't you like my new dishes?)

During my long commute the other night, I had an intense craving for BBQ tofu. What do you think was waiting for me when I got home? Kevin not only cooks, he also reads minds.
BBQ Tofu and Succotash, on more of the new dishes.

How did he do it? Cubed tofu, sauteed in canola oil, then smothered in sauce and reduced over heat. 

OK, I actually made this. I just wanted to show off my new Anthropologie dishes. The yellow bowls were part of a huge set that I bought for a song at some antique store in Hampden.

Moving on... In a post Julie and Julia world, more and more "cook-through"-themed blogs are popping up. I've found a few cool vegan ones recently.

Vegan Dad is baking through Peter Reinhart's The Bread Bakers Apprentice.

Pink Vegan is bravely tackling both The Vegan Table and The Conscious Cook!

We Just Like Vegetables was cooking through Veganomicon! but appears to be on hiatus.

We'll soon be leaving for "OMG! Spring Break 2010 OMG!" And like every other schmuck on Spring Break, we'll be going to Florida. Highlights include staying at a winery, sleeping in treehouses in Georgia, eating Satchel's Pizza and riding bikes around Gainesville with my bro, seeing my mama in Fort Myers, then stopping to see Kev's grandparents in Myrtle Beach. Action packed! 

I'm off to fold laundry and continue packing...
