no access to the kitchen, so now what do i do?

my kitchen is teeming with the smells of paint and spackle as skilled professionals get things done for us so we can sell our teeny tiny house. so me? no kitchen. ((((whistling a dramatic tune))))

PRODUCT REVIEWS!

it's been a while since i've done this. fortunately, i have these two gems in my pocket. the first: anyone who's anyone knows amy's kitchen came out with a vegan mac n' cheez--gluten free to boot! can i get a whoop-whoop? hell yeah. this stuff rocks. THIS is the mac n' cheez you eat when you are having one of those whiny meltdowns that makes you question your veganism. one bite, and you'll be saved from ingesting the what-have-you byproducts from our cow friends. this dish takes me back to the sharp, twisted-gooey-cheddary-homemade glop that the lunch ladies used to make in elementary school. looking on the back at the nutrition info, it has just as many calories too, if counting those happens to be your thang. it ain't mine, but i did find it interesting that one serving has 39% of your daily fat intake. so what. it's effin' mac n' cheez. last time i checked it wasn't classified as health food. these are expensive, so wait until they go on sale. the big secret ingredient is daiya cheese, so if you want to really do it right, i suppose you could just make a homemade dish of it yourself. i think i'll have to look into that. something with breadcrumbs on top...


rating: two turntables and a microphone PLUS beck. it's that good.
this little gem has been the mainstay of my on-the-go mommyhood breakfast. mr. j. found these on amazon and we save when buying in bulk. don't let the label fool you, this is no cookie. it's more like a cookie shaped cliff bar, only better. you can even pop these in the toaster and they have that fresh outta the oven feel. i like the pb and chocolate chunk the best. another great thing? fiber.

rating: a turntable, just a turntable. let's face it--you're better off making your own cookies, BUT for the vegan on-the-go this is nice to have. if you have a vegan at college who needs some goodies, this would fill out a nice care package.

Yeah, you're right, you can totally make your own mac and cheese kinda like Amy's (which is awesome!), but then again, sometimes you just want it when you want it. I'm so glad to have this option.

Those cookies sound good, too. I'll have to keep my eyes open.

Happy Kitchen Spackle and Paint!

wow glad to hear the mac & cheese is that good. I almost picked one up the other day but rarely buy prepackaged frozen food. Ill pick one up just to have as a backup/try out soon. Thanks!

I'll definitely second the hell yah on the Amy's mac & cheese. Honestly, I wish I never found it, b/c it's so good I can't stop buying them. I try to save them for a "special occasion" these days though (anniversaries, birthdays, bar mitzvahs, etc).
