There’s this new movie coming out called “Teeth.” It’s all about the myth of some women having a toothed vagina. Yeah. I know. It does look good and it had great reviews at the Sundance Film Festival. Personally, I find it kind of funny…Check it out if you’re into dark/horror comedy.

I burned my forehead with my curling iron. I didn’t think it was that bad (there was no visible burned skin), but when I came home that night and pinned back my bangs…in the mirror I saw this gorgeous brown line that fell in midst of my eyebrows. I couldn’t help but laugh at myself (by myself); this is when I’m very thankful for having bangs (but they’re the ones that caused that burn!). Have you noticed that I injure myself about every other week (missed the post?)? It’s as if I heal from some body damage and I end up hurting myself again. I am a walking disaster…life’s never boring :-).

Went to Whole Foods and got meself a fab box of 2 types of tabuleh, lemon noodles, and tofu. I’ve had better, that’s for sure.

I was in this mood to have tomato soup all last week…tomato soup? I don’t even like tomato soup that much. But the cravings were calling, so I decided to make it. And guess what? I fell in love. Yes, my dear friends, I fell in love with tomato soup. They say that your taste buds change after seven years, and I think those seven years came and went…AND THE TASTE FOR TOMATO SOUP ENTERED MY BRAIN (and mouth).

I poked around my cookbooks (veggie and non-veggie) to get the gist of what it’s made out of (tomatoes, duh) and I created THE MASTERFUL TOMATO SOUP!


I served it with tortilla chips (<3) and a cheesy sauce. Speaking of cheesy sauce…I made the one from Veganomicon…OMIGOD! This is the first time I think I’ve ever hated a recipe from Isa! I mean that woman is my idol, but urgh! It tasted like acid reflux with fart. I’m not joking! So I poured (God knows how much) soymilk, added cayenne, paprika, and more salt. Phew! After my attempt to recover from the original recipe, I had succeeded! Alas, the creamy pleasant taste of cheese enveloped my mouth.

I baked some classic chocolate chip cookies and hearty oatmeal raisin cookies served with soymilk :-). Too bad Santa’s not around to feel the love.

I was surprised to read that a lot of you haven’t tried rose water before. Hmmm…I guess you can say it does taste like roses…it’s very strong, so you have to use it sparingly to give it the “rose” flavor. As I mentioned in my last post, most Persian desserts are lavished with rose water and that is why I don’t like it much. When I do need it, I go to the nearby Persian market (I usually have it at home because my dad loves that stuff…) to buy it.
I think I’ll begin experimenting with some recipes to make my favorite childhood Persian cookie…it’s made out of chickpea flour (and rose water…ha) and it’s always in a shape of a tiny flower with four petals and a tiny red dot in the center. It’s extremely soft, but sturdy enough to keep its shape when handling it…not to mention it literally melts in your mouth. Yeah, I’ll get on the recipe ASAP.

My mum and I were kind of crazy on Friday night and took a whole bunch of chaotic pictures. Every time I look at them I just crack up…we’re such goobers together. {The major embarrassing ones are excluded…like these aren’t embarrassing enough}

I bought a new cell phone charm. I was in dire need to replace my star Pooh Bear, so I bought a Pokemon one! Made me very happy indeed. (Sorry to be all nerdy on you)

I thought I’d end with a few Mutts comics(because I so dearly love these and every single Mutts comic that’s ever been made). And did you know that Patrick McDonnel is veg? It’s true, you do learn something new everyday :-)

The End.
(for today)

P.S. I might not be able to update for a while because the laptop needs to be fixed…I may be lucky enough to get my hands on someone else’s computer then I can check up on you lovely people. In the mean time, take care of yourselves while my poor laptop takes a breather. <3

Thanks for the comment! Your blog looks great.

Cookies are my most favorite comfort food, and those look delicious!

I've been wanting to try rose water, but I can't seem to find it. I'll have to keep looking. =)

I looove those little cell phone charms. I used to have so many, but then I got a phone that didn't have anywhere to hook them onto. =(

Ooh, I burned my hand with a curling iron once-- those things can be dangerous weapons! Hope your forehead heals soon!

The cookies look super; I wish I had some here right now! And isn't Whole Foods' buffet great?!

Good luck getting your laptop fixed!

From vaginas to delicious cookies, once again your post has given me great pleasure and entertainment ;-)

I can't wait to see 'Teeth'. Unfortunately, it's only playing in select theatres for now, so I'll just have to wait.

The cookies look so big and delicious! My tummy is growling at me, yet again.

And acid reflux with a fart? LoL Somehow- I really don't know how- I could taste that as I read it. Now my belly is growling for different reasons... Bleh!

a) Love your blog!

b) That "Nooch Sauce" recipe by Isa is also not my favorite thing... In fact, one of my least favorite things. I love me some nutritional yeast, but that stuff was BLECH. I have had MUCH better!

c) Your cookies are making me hungry! Yummmmm!

Liz² said...

haha, I love your writing! I'm also a huuuuuge tomato soup fiend, it's so awesome, you can dip anything in it, from cabbage to well, cheezy nachos!

oh, and please do post about those persian cookies, they sound incredible. :o

Jenny said...

Where where where! Did you get the pokemon charms?????

Vegyogini said...

Sometime in March is totally fine to meet up. Just let me know when school slows down a little for you. I've been quite curious about "Teeth" and will probably see it at some point. I've used rose water before and I have that exact bottle in my pantry! When you veganize the cookie recipe, I'll definitely want to try it. :)

I'll admit it - I was crazy for Pokemon back in the day! I was one of the ones who joined in and made fun of it, but then collected the cards and played the video games in secret!! The only guy that looks familiar in your picture is Pikachu, though... What, are there 3 trillion Pokemon now?

Dude. Call me crazy, but I LOVED the cheezy sauce! I don't think the Mac Daddy was the best thing ever, but the Cheezy Sauce was fab on it's own. But then again, I love nooch so much that I eat big bowls of plain oatmeal with it.

Your tomato soup looks so thick and heavenly! I get tomato soup cravings every once in awhile, but this week it's been raging. Would it be a total cop-out to just buy Campbell's and heat it up on the stove with some unsweetened soymilk?! Hehe. I might do that.

"Teeth" sounds funny! I'll keep my eyes open for that one.

I'm continually injuring myself as well. If it's not bruises or cuts, it's burns. I'm a mess.
I've never had ready made food from Whole Foods, but I've heard it's just OK. Too bad because it all looks and sounds so delicious. Your cookies are killer!

Anardana said...

I'm not crazy about her cheez sauce recipe either.

mmm now I want tomato soup..

vko said...

Hope you are recovering from curling iron burn! those little cellphone toys are too cute and that tomato soup looks super yummy!

but I can't believe that the cheezy cheese was not good- but looks like you made it work nicely.
