Comfort Food on a snowy day!

That's right, it SNOWED today. Not just dinky little snow either! It snowed huge fat flakes for several hours, although it never quite got below freezing, and it was 70 degrees two days ago, so the ground was too warm for any actual accumulation. I almost wiped out carrying a baby down the driveway to the car to do this food delivery, though, so it was slippery enough!

Anyways, dinner tonight is Chickpea Cutlets from Veganomicon, mashed potatoes, white gravy, and steamed broccoli. If there was ever a type of day that demanded white gravy, today was it! In addition to smothered in white gravy, they are excellent between two slices of bread with a smear of Veganaise (manna from heaven, that stuff!) or a smashed avocado. If you're feeling fancy, add some lettuce and onion and tomato.

I'm worried some of the cutlets cooked for a smidge too long, so I'm sorry if any of them are tough. Microwaving them in a damp paper towel can soften them up if necessary!
