Today’s chores included a long walk, a trip to the dump, baking more sandwich loaves for the week, making a batch of hummus, and setting up this standing desk converter.
I went on another long walk by the creek earlier today. I am grateful for everyone else I saw wearing a mask like me and concerned at the people, more than those with, who were not wearing them.
Finally got out on the park trail by the creek this morning. A little distressed that half the people I saw didn’t have masks. The trail is not six feet wide. Otherwise was a good walk.
I had to order new pants for fit for the first time in decades. Usually I buy pants when the old ones wear out. This is what a month of dedicated exercise and a whole food, plant based diet with no added oil has wrought. Well on track to be in the best shape of my life by fifty (by 2023.)
I love breakfast sausage patties, always have. The packaged vegan brands are all pretty good and an important stepping stone for me. In order to cut any added oil out of my breakfast and still have a patty I had to make own. These are from the Fat Free Vegan’s recipe.
And now we have sandwich bread for the week. Like my breakfast loaves, these have no added oil. Except for possibly the top crust, they are also free of problem ingredients for Andrea so she can enjoy them too.
In the pans for the second rise before going into the oven. I will give the to an aquafaba way and score them like the breakfast loaves from last weekend.
For this week’s hummus-like dip, I followed Andrea’s ideas, to double the pureed lemon and double the garlic, half fresh and half roasted. I think the new food processor also helped me achieve this amazing texture.

Even the kid, who is not vegan hence the pepperoni and cheese, liked the oil free dough. That’s important to us, that he thought what we eat, too. Key to getting along without going along.
