Update and Vegan Christmas prep

Food filled day. Went to Fresh Vegetarian restaurant (edit, no longer open) in Powerscourt for the first time in years. I got Red Lentil soup, Chocolate cake and coffee. I wanted to die after the cake, it was so heavy. It came with cashew cream, ew. Soy ish creams so far have been horrible. The powercourt centre is such a good building. Need to go in there more.

I picked up some dairy free caramel chocolates from the sweet shop in George's street arcade and my god they are good. It was good to have some good chocolate again. All the tins of roses are killing me this Christmas. They're 3.50 euro for 12. Quite expensive but good.
I also got a little vegan Christmas pudding by The Village Bakery from The Organic Supermarket to have on Christmas. They also have loads of the Moo Free Chocolate range. They taste real good too.
And here is tonight's late night dinner.

I am going down to Cork for Christmas, so it might be a bit of a challenge. Considering it's not my kitchen. I hope I'm not too annoying about the food. I just hope my aunt will leave me some mashed potatoes with no butter.

Vegan Pepperoni.

                                                                                                                                             Picked this up after work in The Organic Supermarket in Blackrock. Wasn't to sure at first but Ailbhe convinced me it was delish and at 99c, why not! It tastes just like the real thing too. Oh, it's vegan pepperoni and apparently packed with protein.
I thought it would go great with pasta so I made some sort of pesto. With semi sundried tomatoes plus some of the oil,a handful of rocket rocket, cashew nuts, 2 cloves of garlic and a chunk of chilli.

And put it with pasta along with the pepperoni and spinach. Very nice.
