cheeze "steak" plate, homemade ice kream

Tonight's meal was really, really great. We picked up three new items this week: "Philly Style" Steak Tofurky Deli Slices, Vegan American Slices and 123'z and Chreese. We were mad impressed with all three products, especially the 123'z and Chreese. We found accidentally vegan "steak" rolls at our supermarket, which was also pretty great. I sautéed a sweet onion in olive oil, sea salt and natural sugar until the onions were caramelized. I added the "steak" slices in with the onions to heat it through. Next I toasted up the rolls and added Vegenaise and Vegan American slices on the rolls. What resulted was a pretty darn close version of a Philly Cheese Steak, minus the green bell peppers since we aren't a huge fan. We had a side of the 123'z and Chreese and steamed broccoli. Well rounded and awesome!
Jared and I got one another this ice kream maker for Christmas and couldn't wait to use it.
So, I made a Maple Brown Sugar Buttery Pecan Ice Kream that had soymilk, soy creamer, arrowroot powder, Earth Balance margarine, maple syrup, brown sugar, vanilla extract and chopped pecans. So good!

I really want an ice cream maker too, but I think my waistline will be happier without it.

Happy Holidays!

Yummy! I asked for an ice cream maker for christmas too :)

Wow! That ice "kream" looks fantastic! Maple is one of my favorite flavors - yum!

I'd love to get an ice cream maker, too, but I'm running out of counter space (not to mention cabinet, drawer, closet, etc. space!). So, until I get a bigger apartment, I guess I'll just have to settle for drooling over the ice cream on your blog :)

That ice cream sounds so good... it's warm here, so I might just have to break out my ice cream maker before it gets cold again.
