Grilled Veggies, Strange Chocolate and an (Almost??) Tornado!

Grilled Beets, Turnips, Asparagus, Seitan and Tofurky!

Just a few odds n’ ends for you today as I prepare to head out of town for a long weekend… Of course, if you follow me on Instagram this should all look familiar to ya!

My dinner last night was AMAZEBALLS! Grilled beets, turnips, asparagus, seitan and tofurky sausage! It was fast, easy, delicious and used up a lot of what was in my fridge! The turnips were probably the best part – I owe you guys a post on how I prepared them.

I bought this chocolate bar last week at Nooch – It’s “Smoky Corn on the Cob” flavor! WTH!?

Finally… HOLY SHIT! I was sitting outside a few weeks ago, reading and enjoying a glass of wine, when I saw a few storm clouds gathering on the horizon. Before long, this was right over my head:

I wish I had thought to press the video button on my phone, because that sucker was swirling. It looked like a tornado trying to form! After a few minutes it suddenly dissipated, sending out a gust of wind that blew the table and chairs over, and lots of hail. Yikes!

And yes… I’m the brainiac who stayed outside through the whole thing taking pictures. <sigh>

    Well, i am still having nightmares about you getting swept away by that thing, and in other dream news, last night, i dreamed i was sneaking a milky way bar out of my mom’s pkg of them. in the dream, i threw it in my car really fast. eek, but the good news is that you recently had me try that amazing vegan milky way bar, so i think i wanted those in my dream. lol.
    Your dinner looks delicious. Have you made a vegan version of potatoes and kielbasa? My mom made that as a kid, and your grilled veggie mix reminds me of it. See you soon!

      I have a vegan butterfinger bar in my fridge if that’ll help! 🙂 And no, I haven’t… sounds delicious though!

    Sure looks as if those clouds are ready to starting to twist!

    Hmmmm, very “interesting” chocolate bar flavors. I kinda get it – the salty/sweetish/smoky thing does sound good.

    Oh wow that is one crazy storm cloud! We have had some amazing weather here in NH this summer, the lightening and storms have been incredible!
