How’s Sunday treating you so far?  Any football fans in the house?   The reason I love football is it’s an excuse to hit up the malls and they’re usually less crowded.  So yeah, I’m a fan, of sorts.

Anyway, muchas gracias on my dessert & sweet treat recap post from yesterday.  Glad you enjoyed it and that it jogged the ole’ memory banks of just how many ways you can make some yumminess.   Raw and vegan not withstanding.  Whenever I tell people I am high raw and vegan, gluten & soy free too, they look at me like I must live on carrot sticks.  Clearly, they haven’t seen my epic dessert posts!

Onto a Gena inspired meal….Kelp Noodles.  Gena mentioned the Sea Tangle Brand in this post.  I found them at my local WF.

Super easy to prepare:  Crack the package open, dice up a few other veggies like zukes & cukes, carrots, red & yellow pepps…

Bonus, I got another meal outta that one little package.  This one was lettuce & kelp noods, tomatoes, yellow pepps, carrots, tossed with balsalmic, EVOO, maple syrup, and black pepper.

The verdict?  Really good, neutral tasting, and would be excellent as a filler in a collard wrap or a raw cuke wrap.

You know those thin little Asian noodles that are often in fresh (not fried) veggie spring rolls? The kelp noodles remind me of those and they’d be great in a wrap.  

But I have to say, I still love my Zuke Noodle Creations doused in Peanut SauceZucchinis are readily available, a bit more hearty, and I think I like the texture better.  That’s not discounting the kelp noodles, but kelp and zuke noods are just different animals vegetables and I guess you probably can’t really compare.

Just like it’s hard to pick whether you wanna kelp or zuke noodles?  Well, for dessert it was hard to decide whether I should finish up the Vegan Blondie Macaroons or whether or I should work on the Raw Vegan Cheesecake.  It was a tough call…

So rather than tax my decision-making abillities, I just got to work on both.  Yummmmm.

And also for dessert, I nibbled on one of the Maple Flax Pancake-Cookies too.  It was a smorgy-board kinda night.  And a good one at that!
