Pumpkin Alfredo for dinner.
Lemme back up a second so I can talk about pumpkin. I may have talked about pumpkin before, but that's because it's awesome! I have my bookmarks sorted into a few different categories, and I actually have a category for pumpkin (and it has more stuff in it than most of the other categories). I love pumpkin sweet or savoury (though I usually end up eating it sweet). I could eat pumpkin any time of year. I do feel more inclined to eat it during the colder months, but I'll make The Best Pumpkin Muffins at the height of summer.
Anyway, back to the recipe. I really liked this. But how could you not like a recipe that calls for 1/2 cup of nooch? I had to add some of the pasta cooking water to make it blend (I find that my food processor doesn't really get things smooth, so I usually use a blender), but I otherwise didn't change a thing. I just wish I'd remembered my chocolate pasta - I have a feeling it would've been perfect with this, and I've been meaning to use it. But I have leftovers, so I'll just make the pasta another night!
I also made The Great Pumpkin Bundt Cake from Have Your Cake and Vegan Too! on Monday. I was iffy on this initially because it took at least twice as long to bake as the recipe said, and it came out a little underdone. I actually had a few pieces and thought, it's not a complete failure, but I don't know if I'd make it again. But when I had some tonight, I microwaved it and ate it warm, with the glaze melting in to it. It was delicious. I wish I could have more. The only thing I might change about it is to add chocolate chips, but that's because I feel chocolate and pumpkin is one of the best combinations ever devised.
My best good friend Eva has a pumpkin bread recipe that is good enough to sell, and she sent me the recipe to veganise. It turns out it would be super easy to do, so I might make that soon (I even bought another can of pumpkin - I might need to stock up again soon since I actually ran out).
I still need to figure out what I'm doing for British Food Friday! I'll come up with something...
