I've been vegetarian for 9 days now. I started the day after World Vegetarian day and have been going strong since. What motivated me to go vegetarian was seeing the film Food Inc. and the fact that many people in my tower were going vegetarian. My original goal was to do it for a week. Then I extended that to ten days. Perhaps tomorrow night I will extend it to a month? We shall see. Anyway, last Friday I, along with a few fellow members of the Green Tower held a vegetarian dinner (though the dishes were actually Vegan). We made spicy potatoes, cabbages & peas over rice and garbanzo bean burgers. I must say, the garbanzo bean burgers were A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I got the recipes here:

Double Birthday Party

Yesterday night we had a joint birthday party for two of the Green Tower members. I decided to bake two cakes. They were swiss chocolate with cream cheese frosting with strawberry, blueberry and chocolate swirl toppings.

Spanish Tortilla

Since classes have started, posting here has become harder and harder. That doesn't mean I haven't been in the kitchen though. Been a baking machine lately as people in my tower like to call me. A few days ago or maybe a week ago, I can't really remember, I made a Spanish tortilla. It's made with 5 eggs, 2 potatoes, onions and various spices. I ate the whole thing myself. ohhh yeaaa
