It’s dark out, so my pictures are not what they could be. Forgiveness is what I am asking for here, mere forgiveness.

On Monday I had a lot of time and apples on my hands so I made two crisps. My traditional apples only crisp sported organic kamut topping, maple sweetener,a nudge of fresh ginger, and exotic cinnamon from my upstairs neighbour, Siobhan. The non-traditional crisp starred Nova Scotian cranberries from the lovely vegan Josey, more fresh ginger, more maple syrup, the exotic cinnamon, and oat topping.  I’ll give this one away,cranberries and I were never really good friends.

Tonight comfort food was high on top of my dinner list .I discovered my casserole sized hole in my casserole loving food heart while watching the new Bullet Express infomercial with a few girls in the staffroom at work . Theirs was something lame with cheese all over it, and mine is my friend famous Tu-no Casserole ! Mashed chickpeas take the place of the missing fish, and kelp is added to enhance the flavours of the sea. Everything else is kept as traditional as possible. Nothing fancy here. This is my personal interpretation of my mothers Tuna Casserole that I loved as a child. Mine tastes just as good, if not better to be honest.

I really wish that picture of the casserole showed more textured detail… Alas, I’ve now eaten half of it so picture opportunities are kaput.

Oh, she’s coming together !
