Vegan cheeseburgers, films and the last of the Christmas cake
A couple of weeks ago I decided to pick a recipe out of one of my new cookbooks; Veggie Burgers Every Which Way, by Lukas Volger. While I was making them I realised I had made way too many for just the two of us, and they wouldn’t really keep, so we decided to invite a couple of friends over to join us at the last minute. It turned out to be a really fun, unexpected evening, and the perfect opportunity to try some cheese that I had been sent. Veganic had kindly gifted me a huge selection of Violife vegan cheeses, and I didn’t quite know where to start!
The cheese was a big hit, even with our non-vegan friends! It’s perfect added to burgers, lasagne and any kind of toasted sandwich, it melts really nicely. Pop over to the To Happy Vegans website and you’ll find loads of great ideas for what to cook with the cheese. I’ve got my eye on that mushroom toastie ;) You can see the full range of Violife cheese flavours here, and details on where you can buy them here. Be sure to Like Veganic Foods on Facebook, too!
After we had stuffed our faces with burger and chips, we settled down with some leftover Christmas cake and watched Monsters Inc University. It’s such a good film! There’s something so brilliant about both of the Monsters Inc films. I think I might add another resolution to my list for this year; to watch more films. Especially at the cinema. We still haven’t gotten around to going to see American Hustle, and The Wolf of Wall Street has caught my eye, too. I haven’t read any reviews yet, but the clips and trailer all look fantastic. So far this week I’ve mostly been in incredible pain because of my back, but I’m really hoping it’s on the mend now and I can get back to work and start planning these cinema outings. These chiropractor appointments aren’t cheap, are they?!
Have you tried Violife Cheese? Have you watched Monsters Inc. University?!
