Chocolate cream and cookies

Breakfast

-A glass of almond milk (homemade)
American vegan cookies
Chocolate cream pot

It’s all sunny these days and it makes me feel so happy. So why not add the pleasure of a nice breakfast? I did Bear’s favourite chocolate creams, with some vegan American style cookies. The chocolate creams are really easy to make and can be stored one week in the fridge, and Bear is so found of them! The vegan cookies are soft ones like those I tasted in Boston. And instead of the traditional glass of milk I preferred almond milk which is easier to make than soya milk, tastier (in my opinion) but a little more expensive.

Oh! And I did a I’m-on-diet-girly version of the chocolate cream pots with low-fat chocolate powder rather than chocolate.

A French version is available here.

Canadian vegan pancakes

Breakfast
Pancakes (Canadian style)
Toffee
-Hot soya chocolate

Some mornings, I wake up and things seems so dark and useless. These mornings I do my best to shake off all these bad feelings and stick myself in the kitchen to favour myself with some breakfast treat. This time it was fluffy Canadian vegan pancakes. And as I don’t have any golden syrup in my cupboards, I reached for the toffee pot which mum taught me how to do not so long ago.

-Freshly juiced orange
-Chicory beverage

Okay banana isn’t local, but from time to time I like to have some. Here I mixed it with some chocolate mousse to please my greedy sweet tooth of mine. As it wasn’t enough (I’m really greedy) I hopped to my cupboard and went to fetch a little treasure: our homemade rose hip jam. Did you ever do some? It starts with a walk on the hills to pick up the fruits, then it continues with two nights of cooking! But it’s worth it. Just taste it on a slice of brioche…

P.S.: Mum, here’s the chocolate mousse I was talking about the other day.

Just a little post which will testify of my greediness. This week-end I’ll be enjoying a simple apple and chocolate pie with a pinch of cinnamon to forget winter. Time to share?

Tea time treat
Vegan chocolate rice pie
Iced tea
-Orange juice
-Squashed banana with a pinch of cinnamon

Lately I’m a little overwhelmed, so I’m a little away from the net and this blog. I’m really sorry, will you forgive me? Though I was really busy, I did find time for a little winter vegan treat: chocolate rice pie. A real pleasure that rarely lasts long here, though Bear hasn’t really a sweet tooth, he can’t resist to eat one more serving.

Pear Helene, iced tea

Supper
Pear Helene
Iced tea

This evening we were at the pictures to see the next step of a famous movie which everybody is speaking of lately. We hadn’t taken time to have dinner. Bear had had a really big meal, so we agreed to have dessert (hurray, for me and my sweet tooth). So I quickly prepared some chocolate sauce to highlight some fresh pears. I served them with some homemade iced tea made with the so flowery tea my Belorussian friend offered us.

My new bento box

Bento content
-Pumpkin pickle
-Rice (risotto)
-Cucumber slices and mushroom slices
-Quail egg
-Dried fruit, pecan nut
Vegan chocolate muffin
-Half a kiwi
-Quarter of apple

The bento pictured is my new bento box from Bento&Co. I rarely advertise for anything, but I believe that Thomas deserved it. You might know through forums or through comments that I was looking for a metal bento box which would be air and liquid tight. I had no opprtunities to find any which could be purchased in Europe and especially Poland. Then, I contacted Thomas and chatted a little. This is how I had the opportunity to purchase the exact bento box I wanted. This is the first meal I had in this bento.
The bento is in stainless steel, so you should avoid any acid food as lemon or vinegar if you want to keep it shinny. Why metal? Come on, it doesn’t go in a microwave. Yes, but, it does go on a a cooker which is what I have access to at my office. So, now I can eat hot meals. It’s just too bad that it’s summer already and that I prefer salad and fresh bentos…Well, don’t complain! It’ll be a real joy in winter (hopping that I do have access to a heater in my next job…)
