First things first, I’ll admit it. I had a dominoes pizza! No cheese, no meat, and bobs your uncle, fannys your aunt. Theres all this bla bla about contamination and all that, but quite honestly I wanted a pizza and the fact it touched a knife that may or may not (provably did) have touched cheese and/or meat did not bother me.
If you think I’m a bad vegan then check out what we are making for Christmas Day breakfast:
I’m not eating it, but it sure is funny so I’m all for making it, because the meat’s being bought anyway so might as well have some fun with it!
To balance this post out for all you veggies who now feel sick looking at the above, here is a british company I found who sell vegan shoes!
I hate the taboo around vegans, not because I think vegans are better than anybody but because I think they’re EXACTLY the same as normal people, they just don’t like to exploit animals which is surely fair enough? So one thing that annoyed me about this brand was that they’ve plonked a whopping big ‘vegan’ logo on the side of their shoes. Whyyyyyyy?!?!?! Yes, we know vegans like to exhibit their opinions and enforce them upon everyone else, but on your shoes… really?
This annoyed me, because I was happy with everything else about this company, so I sent them this:
Am I going off on a bit of a rant here? Anyway yeah, he replied saying the logo is not how it is on the website, and its now just ’embossed’ on the shoe instead of stitched in a different colour. Hmmmm I suppose that’ll do!
Because yes I think it’s absolutely fantastic that they are vegan and good quality, durable shoes at the same time, but people don’t think of the word vegan in the way they should, they just think of a militantly opinionated person protesting against fun.
So I’ve ordered a pair of them as my Xmas present… I’ll let you know how bad the logo, if its terrible ill be sending them back!
In other news, and the actual purpose of this post, is the yum pasta I made the other day!
Spaghetti (100% Durham wheat mmmm)
Jar of Sundried tomatoes
2 red onions
(Could the ingredients possibly be easier?)
Get the spaghetti boiling in a pan.
Use the oil from the tomato jar, whack a bit in to a wok, and add diced onions.
Chop up the Sundried tomatoes a bit, I like them chunky, and throw in with the onions. Here you can add cherry tomatoes if you have them.
Let them simmer in their own juices whilst the pasta cooks. You can add sugar to the onions to make them caramelise beautifully if you’re as unhealthy as me.
When the pastas done, drain and add to the wok. Mix, and let it heat up a bit and let the flavours infuse with the pasta.
Serve with a bit of that fake Parmesan stuff that’s actually well nice (I say well nice, but fake cheese now tastes like dairy cheese to me so don’t trust my taste buds!). My family use it too though so can’t be that bad.
Enjoy with garlic bread if you have the time and effort! This is a definite go-to meal when I don’t know what to cook! Yuuuuum
